          I'm never again going to wait until the last minute to finish up a project, yeah right....
          i give the project an A for effort but a B+ for shaping.
          there was suppose to be a little piece for the key hole under the door handle but I couldn't get a round circle that small cut without loosing it and a rear view mirror on the driver side door that just didn't look right..
          tonight I'll put a hanging wire on the back..

          thanks for the nice nice comments and for following my project. We will see in a couple weeks how it dose at the fair..

              It's now a wall hanger...
              It's not very often Mrs.Trout gives me compliments on my work because she really isn't a fan on some of the stuff I make. I got home from work today and she told me that the car was beautiful and that the pictures don't do it justice..WOW

                That is great and I now what you mean. My wife does not show a whole lot of interest in my scrolling, and usually the best I get is that's nice. But, whoa on to me if I don't do hand stands over her quilting..... None of her quilts fit my bed! I can't even get a patch put on some old jeans with any of her fancy sewing machines.....

                  Nice work!
                  Brings back fond memories of my teenage years. While I never owned one, it was one of my favorite cars.

                        When I was a kid, my uncles (big brothers, really) used my grandmother's 56 to teach me how to wash a car. Every Saturday afternoon, so it would be clean for church.

                        My uncles' names: Tom & Sawyer now that I think about it.
                        When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
                        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                          A really fine piece, as always, Trout. I bet the fitting those wheels was a trip.

                          Great job!

                            I am thinking that the light comes up from the base and when the cutout is turned it also changes the pattern on the base.

                            Nope just went back and watched again. Sure would like to find some pattern for that.

                            Wolfenstein was, is still great. back in the early 80s I worked as a repair tech for Covox. We made Sound Master sound cards for Apple, Commador, and IBM. Part of the system was voice recongition. Lost many hours trying to get voice commands to work with the card.

                            I looked at their website and it appears to me it is for local pickup only. You would have to call and see what can be done but I bet it would double the price....
