Big things with little cars

I became really happy when I came across several boxes with old diecast parts and pieces the other day. It brought back some great memories, and it gave me some projects to finish. I had totally forgotten about all of them, but once I laid eyes on them, I remembered every single one!

Stripped bodies...(after I took this photo, I found the back half of the Bonneville funny car, front left, but I chose not to re-shoot it.)

This was an unfinished project that mattel ruined for me. Before they came out with their Midnight Otto, I had taken the shell of a ‘32 delivery, like the one on the left, chopped the roof and started to open the back windows. I just may finish this one anyway, now that I’ve found it again!
