Thx for the input.
I agree the wing is not practical but for the theme of go fast parts it works. I'm drawing the line at wheelie bars LOL.

RIGHT ON with this ..Great style, & execution.
I do have to agree with the others, regarding the hood scoop. It does take away from the slickness of the build.
I would recommend a low cowl hood.
GREAT WORK!!!!

Been plugging away at this. I messed up the body paint. Hobby shop was out of Tamiya so I tried a Model master lacquer spray can. Well that didn't go well..... I was able to save it with out tossing it in a bath of castrol super clean but if I screw this next spray I'll abandon the project.... (Or just make it back to a regular Chevy II with an old body I have.)

Interior nothing fancy. I was messing around on the lathe and made an aluminium steering column.

I backed myself into a corner with the intake of the car. By going back to the low cowl hood I could not use the kit high rise intake. I hunted around and found an old Corvette fuel injection so went with that. Plumed the plug wires, coil, alternator and scratch built a battery, waiting till glue dries and will run the battery wires. Scratch built an air intake. Turned a piece of aluminium down on the lathe to make a cone air filter.

That old Rochester Fuel Injection unit looks good all dolled up like that. Nice work Brent.
