#8 -- Marcos Cruz's 1962 Catalina Drag Racer
(click the image to go back)
Before and during this build, Cruz made good use of a
lot of very good, clear, and detailed photos of 1:1 Pontiac
Catalina racecars as guides to getting his details right.
To get the correct stance after studying these photos,
he had to raise the front suspension by three scale inches.
Cruz used embossing powders for the interior carpeting,
a Model Car Garage '62 Catalina Detail Set, and some tricky
masking to complete the interior.
