the Shirley Muldowney railer- one that never existed!

Started fumbling with this railer project for a summertime "build-off" contest but lost interest for a while. I've loved these nasty top fuelers for as long as I can remember and was always intrigued by Cha-Cha Muldowney, so this car's an '08 build of what yours truly thinks her first railer would have looked like....had she built it today that is! After learning that these large scale kits are soon gonna be history....decided to give this 16th dragster idea my last hoo-rah! The beast even took 1st in drag class at the Three Rivers Tri State show in March '08 here in Pittsburgh! Went for for my cleanest, most detailed build to date, all polished finishes and as much scratch building and mods as I could pull off on this. Thought a "modern day" build of a nostalgic year dragster would be cool so here she is! Started over with a combination of several parts box pieces & these 2 kits. She ever drove a car like this one? I don't think so, but you can be sure that if yours truly would ever have had a say in it, this is exactly what it would have looked like!!
