Default My open wheel dream..

This is going to be my first actual build. Ive had the "donor" car for 2 years or so now. Havent done anything with it till last year when i decided to go this route.

I love Alfa Romeos. The looks, interior, and sound. But i cannot stop myself from not drooling over formula fords.

So im colliding the best of 3 worlds. Open wheel, Alfa, and my favorite engine type.. The h-6.

As this is just a start, i have things planned out for this car already. But for now, here is just a simple mock up of what an alfetta sedan could look like narrowed.. Poor 75 was all rotted out and had bondo so thick it made me sick.

Slow build here. Im not a purist.

alphas are awesome.
who doesn't love the GTA and even the new giulia quadrifoglio is one hell of a machine.
also just last night saw Seinfeld driving an alpha on comedians in cars getting coffee. cool show. great cars.

this project looks awesome and will be fun to see the relaxed pace of this build over the years. take your time brother!

See what happens when I have been gone for months and my ability to post pics has expired and you start living the dream, my dream of owning a Jeep and actually wheeling it, has become a nightmare from hell but that a whole another story my Brother, have not touch anything RC or even looked at anything RC related in months, and not one person, not even the Taco or my pal Shinchu has even bothered too contact to see if I'm still alive and not laying dead in a ditch somewhere, and yes I'm a little hurt that you people, that's right, I said you people make like I'm not even missed around here, but there is enough of you that remember me fondly, and would be happy if I were to disturb the shit around here once again and we both know it, just like when the Love of my Life asks why I push her buttons, cause I can

Couple rough sketchy sketch's. Last pic is of the chassis seperation. I will be able to slide the rear out of the back of the main chassis (person cradle) lol. It should be 8 ft wide when im done. Close to the legal michigan width.
