Looking real good so far. I like the winged Chevys  though the 59 was a bit over the top, the 60 was better. My best friend had one just like this, 2 dr sedan. What have you got in this for a motor?

In fact I am looking to get a 60 Impala hardtop in order to build a stock car from that.

When I moved from my apartment to a nice bachelor pad condo two years ago, I took down my bench and put all my built models and most of my boxed kits into storage. I did keep all the kits I could hold on my shelves in my new basement. Came across some cool started builds that I am working on. In fact, I probably have at least six projects going.  This one is a MCW Resin 60 Biscayne on a Monagram Impala chassis.  Hope ya like it!

That looks just like the modified's that they raced in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Well done! Due to my dad's job, we lived up there for three years. I don't remember the name of the track, but it was part of the fairgrounds. They raced cars during the spring and summer, snowmobiles sometimes during the winter.
Again, well done!

These cars looking as such raced from 1960 till 1973. The exhaust "zoomies" were replaced with one large collector around 1966. Other changes were torsion bar suspension but the cars appearence did not change till '73. Then roofs came off and wings were added. Always a great race show!

'72 was the last year also that they raced at Hales Corners. Late models took their place.

TLouis, 

Very nice job,  and a very neat one also! It is fascinating with open cars such as this that you can see how they were built. I am a life long Mainer and familiar with short track racing in Maine and the northeast, but not the upper midwest. Can you give me some idea as to what time period that cars like this one were raced in that part of the country. My heart lies with mods from the late 60's to early 70's but suspect this one is from a later date than that.
