I sketched out my next project. Starting with a 40s truck, I wanted to add a Galaxie grille
and rocket-like rear fenders.

This is what I started with.

I had an engine, but it was too small when coupled with the truck cab, so I widened it.

I marked on the hood where I wanted to chop it.

The rear fenders were shaped from clay and the exhausts are from a Magic Marker.

I had to alter the front end in order to make the Galaxie grille fit.

I bought the injectors online and glued them to a manifold I made from plastic.
The openings in the hood had to be redone several times in order for the injectors to stick out.
