Topic: New look for an old Project

This 1/24 scale Triumph TR3 has been hiding in the back of a drawer for years.

Way back when I was drag racing with Bob and the guys in Vancouver we had an "import" class. I built this and a Toyota Cressida for that class.  At some point after I had my own track I put the body on an old AMT chassis with some odd looking insert wheels. 

I looked unsuccessfully for a long time for 5/40 threaded wire wheels. I've tried various inserts but didn't like any of them. A few days ago in another drawer I found four Dynamic "sport" wheels that looked kind of like wire wheels but they didn't fit well under the body. I ended up just painting what I had and adding the spinners.

While it is no speed demon with its 36D motor it is very quiet, smooth and fun to drive.

Now to work on an interior.

Race cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.
