This finishes the 3 builds I wanted to do from the 1963 Darlington Southern 500.


Very nice. Well done! I was a big fan back the day!



 :) :)  I agree.  Very nice.   I was there that day.  What a spectacle  for a Mississippi boy who knew nothing but a 1/4 mile dirt track. 
Look to the Lord and His strength -  Seek His face always.

Never was Lorenzen fan, back then I was strictly hardcore Chevrolet: Holly Farms and Junior Johnson.  He lived eight miles from my house and was a legend for his "extracurricular" activities. That being said, Mark you have done an excellent job, as always, on this build.  I have followed many of your builds and am in awe of the detail you incorporate in them. Two thumbs up.
When I win the Powerball I will switch to the real ones.

Beautiful model Mark. Thank you for letting us see it
