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 casts....it'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).
