    Hello Douglas,

    guess I got a head start: I have already posted a thread with the Cheetah here.
    But thank you very much for the praise and the attention!

    Nothing wrong with doubling up on praise, I assume.

    Beautiful build!

    I have stood next to a few of these "cars" in the paddock at Laguna Seca, over the years, and though I know they are not well designed, and have all sorts of issues. They flex, and the drivers are pretty much destroyed in short order. -they are just sexy!

    The sixties here in southern California, was a magic place! Cheetahs being built at one end of town, and Cobras not too far away.

    Hard car to pigeon-hole, almost a hot 1/8th Scale- 1963-1965 Bill Thomas Cheetah Scratch Build -rod, almost an exotic, a racer for sure, definitely a grown mans toy. Worthy subject for a large scale model! Well done!
