Hello, I have not posted in a while, 2015 was a crazy year for me. I have enclosed some pictures of a project that has been on the back burner for a while. This is a prototype, still working out the details on the mag wheels. I plan on sharing my methods of making custom rims in the near future. The body is made from laminated 2x4 pine, wheels are oak, the wheel insert (mag wheel) is made from poplar. I designed this toy for serious play.

Looking good so far. I been wanting to do a 36 Ford Coupe with a rumble seat in the back. I have not figured out how to best do the seat as it needs to open and close.

Wheels are such a pain in the butt. I got a toy setting on the bench cause I can't get the wheels to look like I want  [frown]

Anyway thanks for sharing, I love the old cars and trucks...

That looks really nice, has just the right stance to pull off the look. The curve along the bottom that goes parallel to the ground near the front is perfect.
