I used a dirt track racing champions diecast for this because the wheels were perfect on it. this is one of those short track racers that has the lopsidedly huge wheel/tire on the R side, at first I thought it was a mistake before I realized that's the way they are. anyway that made for a cool look to the R rear wheel once I fitted a normal size tire on that side.
the body was too narrow so I cut all of the top off of it and added a new roll bar made of coat hanger run through the body for stability and to get the right appearance, grill is paperclips cut to size, and a huge shoutout for the iron cross decal someone did (humvee driver?) and I got from the internet, I printed it to size on adhesive label paper and stuck it on the front panel and then glued that on the frame.
this one was a lot of fun to make.
