McLaren M8D Can Am Series Winner(1970)

Another kit I resurrected in the 90s, after market decals. Bruce McLaren died while testing this car.

1966 Chevy Corvair

Dan Gurney's 1972 Eagle pole winning Indy car driven by Bobby Unser

Unser qualified this car 18 mph faster than the previous year's record, really set the race world on fire. This was based on the 1974 AMT kit and I modified it with a 1972 wing and other additions with after market decals.

I rebuilt this about 25 years ago with after market decals.

1958 Chevy Impala custom

I built this one about 25 years ago, looks like it came right out of Rod & Custom magazine. Quite a bit of putty and sanding done here. That's what we used to call a very sanitary rod.
