This was just too awesome to go without posting. All kids remember popping open one of those boxes, taking out all of those blister kits and begin piecing together a car. This 1:1 model scale 1940 Ford was the work of the St. Joe Valley Street Rod Club in South Bend, Indiana. The setup is complete with a giant X-acto knife, Testor's paint and glue. Add it all to another lonely Friday night and this is pretty much my childhood.
