Hot Rod pickup

I like hot rods, 50's style hot rods. This one started life as a Hot Wheels "Hooligan" diecast. I made a quickie mold in silicone, cast some resin and here it is. Interior is one of my "Willys Interior Kits", windscreen is from a HotWheels '33 Ford. Chassis is an Aurora SlimLine, tweaked a bit for speed. It did manage to make a respectable showing at it's first race.

Here is a shot of the first prototype. The tires on this one are rejects from my production's all thrown together just to see how things work. The prototype is Panzer Gray because I had a can of it handy left over from a Robby Robot project (see that project down below the truck photo).
