Nice wheels! When can I buy one :D

Super coo! Have you done any animation? It would be fun to see distort all cartoony style as it rears up and rips on down the road.

I think it could use big burly knobs on the back tires, but I aint knocken it. Nice work.

Sweet wheels. Nice job.

The model is great. The back wheels however I think could use a texture on the surface of the tyres, like the front ones. As the back wheels are so big the lack of a bump/texture stands out because everything else is so detailed.

Woo -- normally I pass on car models, but this thing gave me some serious flashbacks to the sixties :D
Great job!

Adrian, the rear tires are racing slicks -- not supposed to have a tread. What, teenagers in Britain don't run illegal drag races on country roads?

They may do, but as I'm way past being a teenager I have no idea!

I'm with adrian. I kind of figured the tires were supposed to be treadless, I just think it would look cooler, more cartoony menacing with some big old knobs on there, and like a flattened cat pressed into the tread. Get some nice cloth dynamics on the cat as it flaps off into the breeze with a roaring face smoke trail...

Does anyone remember the Groovie Goolies cartoon from the 70's?
Looks like a car Wolfie might drive. Couldn't find pic.s of his car, but I think the roof may have been a giant skull...? Anybody?
Not the same, just triggered an old memory. Maybe I should sleep more.
Found it. The whole thing apparently was a skull. Not even close, I know.
I'm switching to decaf.

Take a look at these http://www.ratfink.org/vehicles/ We used to built these models as a kid (i,m 50). Check out the Rat Fink mascot. I modeled this outa my head but i suppose that Ed "Big Daddy" Roth thing was always deep in my brain. He made some wild stuff that nobody else had even thought about back then. scott

Monfoodoo...I'm 46 and I remember "Big Daddy" He did make wild cool cars and The Slicks are really bald like that because they use alcohol and gas for the burn out and get more traction than treads...Great job on your car Monfoodoo :)

Thanks! I here roth's RATFINK is making a comeback with some model company. Love Live. scott

Does anyone remember the Groovie Goolies cartoon from the 70's?

Absolutely, not least because here in the UK the word 'Goolies' has a somewhat different meaning!

Perhaps most usefully expressed in the phrase "He's got me by the goolies!"

That and Decals...I bought a few last year in California at a Hot Rod shop and then I stuck them to my truck...some people asked me "Whats That for?" I guess they don't understand the nostalgia. :) Pablo
