I've been half heartedly looking for a few years,for a mid to late 60's Jaguar XKE Fast back coupe body and 2 noses or a resin Funnycar body to do the Snoopy Funnycar from the late 60's. Any ideas or help is appreciated. Paul

oh man! i used to live near service center when sheldon built that and saw it run at lions several times. it seem to always have problem, but i am sure he got it running good without my attendance eventually. man, i always looked at that on the way home from school everyday. service center always had some cool cars being worked on. '55 chevy's with straight axle, glass front end installations. a crap load of gassers on the way to the drags would stop by. big names were always stopping by. man i loved that time!! i remember one time, sheldon had just built a T bucket with a blown sbc and was doing wheelstands in the driveway of the shop! i watched for about 15 minutes until he stopped, he blew out the powerglide. haha. man, build that thing in any scale. do you remember his darren sports car he built. henry j frame and sbc. that was another beautiful car or how about his '65 ford galaxy funny car? he always built off the wall cars and i loved them all until i got older and found girls, yuk!!

41 Chevy... There is already a builder that has built the snoppy car in 1/20 scale and 1/24 scale already. He is a true friend of mine and he always builds quality in a ridiculous amount of time... I believe he built both builds with-in a month.... Click on his link.... And scroll to the bottom of the page... www.geocities.com/john.teresi/index_pagetwo.html
I remember the Darin... of Snoopy I have a lot of photos off and a big color spread in a 1969 Car Craft and some pics of it running. I believe that it burned?. Ordered the decals and got 3 reissues of the 1/24 Revell xke kits for the body parts. Great built...much insperation!! Paul
