This one is mine the woods are cherry,cedar, oak bumper and tires are white pine polish with black shoe polish, the coves are some white wood that came off of a skid, the hood is cypress as well as the seats, I put fins on the tail pipes, they are made from Shittim wood, the tail lights and head lights are popular, has two coats of polyurethane spray!!
