Big things with little cars

Custom Datsun Wagon

This particular custom is all philipilihp fault. I traded for a Datsun wagon with him. When it showed up, it had an older hot wheels along with it.


I immediately wondered what the wheels off the other car would look like on the Datsun. A bit of grinding later the answer was “pretty good”, and again reminded me of a more period car running smaller wheels with fatter tires.

A coat of green paint and some detail painting, and it was done.


The wheels are definitely oversized, and required some grinding of the wheelwells to fit, but in person they look more beefy than overlarge.


He is also responsible for my only other Datsun wagon, an error car with on incorrect wheel on the right front.
