Hey Dennis,

I thought you may be interested in some of my old photos for your site. They're from an event at the Pontiac Silverdome in either 1990 or 1991. I have them in protective plastic pages in a book, so I just scanned a couple pages to see if you like these or not. I have more old ones like this, so let me know if you'd like me to send any others.

Thanks,

Derrick Golla

I built this model for Gary Porter using a USA-1, a Chevy Silverado, and a Hammer Head models.

COST TO BUILD: $35.oo TIME TO BUILD: 87 hours SCALE: 1/25th

Hand fabricated frame-cage combo, slanted front clip, Knight Stalker shocks, cantilevered 4-link suspension, exhaust pipes, and cockpit. Completely hand painted, and the only model that I cut the tires on.
