The WIP can be found here

The chassis is from a Revell AC Cobra, the engine is from a Revell Rally Fiat 131 and the body is a resin piece I have had for years in fact everything accept the body is from the parts box or scratch built.

I ditched the original exhaust manifold and made some Zoomies, which are much more appropriate. I would have liked a skull for the gear knob but not having one, I made a piston instead.











To go along with the 'european theme' (the engine) I gave it a Jaguar MkII grille.





And finally, just for Buck. LOL

Really cool, Al. I like the engine choice that sets it apart from the rest. Great work cleaning out the parts box.
