1974 #06 Neil Soapy Castles Kimball Music Centers Dodge Charger

First, let me say that I am primarily a 1:64 collector, and that is the main reason I am a fan of Soapy's, he was long retired by time I came around. Back in 1992 and 1993, I did not have many Superbirds. (Note: I called Dodge Daytonas AND Plymouth Superbirds "Superbirds" at the time, and I usually still do) My mom brought me home this one, and it was my third 'bird. But, I lost it. I was terribly upset at the time, as I had lost my new pride and joy! I was on a hunt to find another copy. It was a hard item to find! But, before I could find a new one, the original one was located under the couch, and it was not damaged save a little dusty. I was so happy. Ever since that ordeal, I have been a fan of Soapy Castles! And hey, I was only 8 or 9 at the time, and I am sure the name Soapy had something to do with it :) That original 1:64 Daytona still holds a proud spot in my collection, as does the slightly improved 1998 issue. I should note that I now have every 1:64 Winged NASCAR ever produced. It's not many, but there weren't that many in 1:1 either.
On to this build. This one doesn't hold hardly any meaning to me like the Daytona does, but this one was available in decal and the Daytona is not! It's basically the same paint scheme, and if I can ever figure out the consarned Polar Lights chassis it will be built!

Finally building a car of one of my favorite 70s drivers!
