One more finished:

Jim McKeown's Shell Porsche 911 Sports Sedan

Mckeown 911-1 by David Freeman, on Flickr

Mckeown 911-2 by David Freeman, on Flickr

Original car was in bits and bought second hand.

Previous owned had hacked it up and put a big V-8 engine inside.

Had to create a new front chassis and mount the interior and front wheel from scratch

Those are some real beauties there!

I just love the look of those classic cars and they seem to gain extra speed from those cool racing colors.

Very well done!

They're both beauties but I think that Class A is a real gem!

Great stuff.

The decals are a combination - the racing number is commercial, the Grace Bros, TAA and Ampol printed on decal sheet via a inkjet printer.


Next up - John Leffler's Mini's, Bruce Taylor's Jag sports sedan and Brian Foley's Alfa GTAm

Also working on - but will be a little down the track - Bruce Carey's V8 Capri

I don't believe for one minute those are Aussie racers.

Not nearly enough room for the beer.

I like this one a lot and not just because I smoked Chesterfields (albeit non-filters) for years.

Yet more outstanding paint work. Few get 'em as sharp and clean as you do.

Great stuff!

This one not strictly accurate - but based on Barry Sharp/Bruce Taylor Jag from the early/mid-70's:
