Zimbabwe National Day

Jerry Hawhee (Old Blind Dog) is here with a classic car I love the look of.  This is his 1/25 AMT ’36 Ford Coupe that Jerry built with much success.  I particularly loved the addition of the greyhound hood ornament.

Jerry Hawhee (Old Blind Dog) is here with one of the classis cars from the '50's.  This is his 1/25 AMT ’51 Chevy Fleetline “Turtleback” with 2 tone interior and a fully plumbed engine compartment.  And the foil over the exterior trim certainly added the perfect touch.  Simply beautiful Jerry...Harley Earle's cars never grow old to my eyes.
