Thanks bloomquistfan,the car body is made from polystyrene sheet plastic and the lettering is done by hand.The track is made from plywood with plaster added on the bottom groove for the mud. Model railroad ballast is glued on the top groove for the loose stuff.The fence is made from window screen and finishing nails.

How long does it take you to make one? Do you have a website?

Thanks everyone. The time it takes to build one of these type cars varies. The lettering usually takes the longest because it is done by hand with a brush. The more that is on the real car means the model will take more time to do. I work on several cars at once and go back and forth between them.I build all types of dirt cars from the past to the present with everything from ministocks to latemodels. The time is about the same for all of them. I have been trying to get a website going for quite a while. My nephew has been working on it but for several reasons it still isn't up yet.
