Default Two 70s San Jose Supermodifieds

Not the real cars but scratch built 1/8 scale models of two of the better know supermodifieds that raced at San Jose Speedway back in the 70s. The #3 of Howard Kaeding and the #1 of Nick Rescino. Still working on the #1 car.

Nice! Have you made a Don Edmunds super mod yet? all your other work is fabulous. Really super nice models, excellent. At 1/8 scale, what are the average physical dimensions of your models?

Thank you Mitch; these cars are approx. 19" long bumper to bumper and 10" wide and 9" tall ,with a wing. Both models went to family members of the driver. Here's sprint car I am building for the Open Wheel Musuem in Phoenix. It will be the car JJ Yeley raced in 2002.


I just lack the decals and she's race ready. Here's another one I built for that musuem. It's the Stanton house car that Ron Shuman drove on 1980. There's a Pepsi can next to it to give you an idea of how big these models are.
