Here in the U.S. (and many other countries) we drive our cars on the right side of the road. In England and many former British colonies, they drive from the right side of the car. My question is who is really "right"?

I really like that scheme too Sith Lord! The wheels really set it off. They have discontinued those white wheels here in the U.S. Maybe not elsewhere. Shame too. You can still get them in black. On my 69, the corners of the nose are really thin and crush easy. Shoe goo helps. I use the rounded back end of an old tooth brush to "rub" out the wrinkles when I get done wall-smacking. Works really well. Try it! Nice job!

I like the all black look! Is it painted on the outside? I did that with my red/white camaro with the black hood. Held up well. I loved the flat look. So much that I did an entire car in a flat style.

Here are some stickers I made for a VTA racer. He would like to advertise that his car is 100% USVTA rules compliant. Let me know if you are interested in showing your support for the USVTA rules and I can make some decals for you as well...and your track! I can make them in various colors as well. PM me for details.

Go VTA, it is the most popular class at our track.

my first paint job and i know its not pretty so be nice lol





just waiting on paint for the nose sections, i think next time i will go with something metallic for better depth. i kinda wish i had gone with smaller numbers on the hood like the original but too late now lol i wanted it to look exactly like the original trans am javelin but everyone who runs this body uses the same number six, and i like the look but didnt want to have the exact same thing as everyone els so i threw in a slight change, plus no matter what direction you look at it from the numbers are the same
