    Caveman Motors

    Post  1976Cordoba on Tue Oct 05, 2010 8:49 pm

    Well the Darlington HO Raceway plans on having a vintage race car show and the guys at Caveman Motors just finished up a restoration on a Bobby Isaac K&K Insurance Dodge Charger.



    Turns out that Rustoleum 'Allis Chalmers Tractor Orange' is a pretty close approximation to the K&K colors. The body started life as a green chrome abomination that the Caveman boys picked up on the cheap from Parts Pig Salvage.


    One of the knuckleheads in the detail department about ruined the paint job getting the window trim on, but a couple of blems were quickly handled before things got out of hand. We got a hook up down unda who handles our decal needs and he came thru with a sweet set of vintage decoration to finish off the body.


    A set of black RRR narrows and some PVT skinny slip-on tars rounded out the package, and this baby runs sweet with vintage NOS Aurora power.


    We had a modified show up at the track for pre-registration this week -- "The Flaming Watermelon" came this way via Land HO Raceway and looks right at home with the other vintage cars rolling into the track. Thanks Nuther Dave! Very Happy

    That car came out beautifully. I'll look forward to keeping up with it!
