The Nova at the top is a JL one that had both axles badly bent and most of the paint flaked of. It is now sitting on the chassis of the matchbox behind it. I tried using the rear engine from that chassis, but it wouldn’t work. So the trunk area is now going to be a gunners platform.

The Ferrari was stripped of its paint, given the wheels & grill-guard of a MBX hummer and a slight lift.

This corvette got the engine & driver’s seat from the nova chassis donor. I need to figure out something interesting to do with the front of it where the engine used to be.

And now my new favorite. I just started this and am still grinding away trying to get it to drop on the chassis properly(this is the source of the silver dust on everything else). I love that the chassis is also rear-engined. I’m going to try and keep as much of the original outlaw paint job visible through weathering and whatnot.
