Big things with little cars

Stage Fright

I can’t remember where I picked up this little ditty... maybe some antique store or something, but it’s an older 70s casting that I haven’t seen much at all. It’s supposed to be a stage coach, hence the name.

It looks cool, but I couldn’t fight off the feeling of wanting to add my own personal touch to it. First off was taking it apart to see the components. As you can tell from the following picture, the engine is hidden within the coach and that didn’t really do much for me.


So after stripping it and going through my car custom parts bin, I found just the right set of tires and a brand new engine to really make it pop.

With the parts set it place - only the paint scheme was left...


I think the final result really earns the name Stage Fright! :)
