I think we need to know more about this one.

I agree with John2. Did you do a WIP on this one? Really some beautiful work and very convincing.
When I win the Powerball I will switch to the real ones.

fellow modelers,

I started with an ASA chassis and added the back and front extra bars. The body is made out of ever green sheet plastic except the nose which came from a 1998 nascar monte carlo. The wheels, beadlocks, seat, hubs, filler cap on fuel cell are from Ron Coon resin, the motor out of the nascar kit and the breather I cast myself along with decals I made myself and the kit except for the #'s they are from STS decals
Will post photo actual car when I get home on job now, somehow photo of actual car is lost out of memory of my computer.  This is a replica build of Paducah ky.'s Gary Keeling's 1999 season car he
raced around ky.,tenn, indiana, and Eldora

GREAT Job Michael! You did some fine fab work on this replica. I saw Gary running at the VADA New Mexico shoot out this week. When the announcer said his name and where he was from...I said to my wife.... "that"s where Mike's from".

Thats quite an undertaking. Lots of kitbashing, scratchbuilding and detail work. Well done and thanks for posting pics.
