Default 1/8 Scale Watson Indy Roadster

After a ton of research I'm now building an 1/8 scale A. J. Watson Indy roadster from 63. Here's the Offy 255 cu. in. motor and the body buck that will be covered with fiberglass.

I'm finishing up the body and I've made one tire and wheel.

Here is my 1/1 scale Watson roadster version of the same car Old Sprinter is building..... Unfortunately, unlike Old Sprinter, I couldn't afford an OFFY so I had to use an Alfa Romeo engine instead.

Thanks Mitch. Mac Miller knows more about these cars than anyone I know. He helped me get this project started. I think Mac could build one of these in his sleep. Thank you Mr. Miller for you help.
