Right click?? to save them to your picture files. There not going to open up in to a photo viewer if that is what your thinking. Your thinking of thumbnails and these are not. Hope that helps.

Here's the progress on the white/red Machinery Locators sprinter I'm building for Terry:

The car behind it is going to be the Sammy Swindell Federal Express car and the other one with the white fuel cell is another '82 version Ry-Son Spl. for Larry Witt.

John, if you have a really big magnifying glass I can stop by and hand letter the Terry Doss car, since I was the one who lettered it back then....LOL Man that was years ago.

You're more than welcome to get after it! That was a really cool looking car, dig the pinstriping and oil derrick on the front of the hood. I hope to have this one and the Ewell car done by this weekend. Have them for the next Holley's event, for sure.

The first time I remember Terry racing a Super was when he set on the Pole at the Hutch

Nationals. I was very impressed with him then, and followed him after that throughout his

career.

John,

Great job Terry & Don should be proud of this one!!!!! Where did you find a in-line 6???? Another neat tribute about this car is the engine builder (2) Time NHRA TOP ALCOHOL DRAGSTER CHAMPION Tom Conway. Tom is still active in NHRA Alcohol racing today. Always thought that Maroon & White #73 was a neat looking car. I was fortunate enough to get to race a little with Don & Terry when he drove for Gene Jones (David's Dad) and you were not going to find much nicer people to race with then those guys, they both are a tribute to our sport!!!!

Thanks, David. I had a couple of the in-lines stashed away, need to find some more! I'll have to say, this is turning out to be one of my favorite builds. Yes, Terry's a good guy. Hope to have this one finished up soon. Have another project going and will post pics of it soon.

John,

This model is really looking great. I have about five or six AMT 1937 Chevrolet Coupe models I have been saving for building some of my favorite cars from Lawton Speedway and Wichita Falls during the early '60's. the kits have in-line six cylinder engines. I can't think of any other kits that have six cylinder engines. Too bad because I would like to re-build the Ken Hailey #54 I built once. You are a great model builder.

Mike
