          I had heard that 15/16 scale rumor. People that saw it in person said it just didn't look right, but didn't know why. Smokey could sure interpret a rulebook.

            Saw a Chevelle once painted up like that. Even without the numbers you could tell were the guy got his inspiration from and I thought it looked great.

              It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                Those goons over at pro-touring should take a few pointers.

                15" wheels are the only choice on anything made before 1980, everything else looks stoopid.

                  I'm sure you have the mullet and air shocks to go along with those 15's...

                        He also made a '67/'68 Camaro to run Trans-Am; it, too, was told to leave the track and never return. He did such things as give the front fenders a small droop to benefit aero; route coolant through the rollcage to enable running greater compression and therefore make more power; route FUEL through the rollcage for obvious reasons; set the engine back J-U-S-T a tad to gain better front/rear balance; the list goes on. This guy was amazing in the way his mind worked!

                        I would also love to see someone (GMP?!) make a 1:18th of this car to go with their excellent Smokey Camaro! Considering they used Ertl's P-100 Thunderbolt to make a replica of a Georgia-natives drag car, they could do the same with Ertl's Authentics-level Malibu to create this! Maybe not; that would require making a new front- and rear-end; Smokey's car was a '66, Ertl's is a '67. Crap. Oh well, nice idea while it lasted.

                          I just tried to follow the link to the auction and was told that I don't have access permission. Huh? What does that mean? I'm logged in, shouldn't that be enough?

                            This car should be in the new NASCAR Hall of Fame, in the same room with all the if-ee and illegal parts.


                            One of the few GM's that is on my dreamcar wish list, along with Smoke's Camaro.

                            A tribute street stocker would be a bitchin' way to build a Chevelle.
