Eight Foot Long Chris Craft Corvette PICS As Promised


I figured you guy's would like to hear about this one. One of my customers told me last summer of a model boat that he built a long time ago. Said it was 8' long and a scale model of a CC corvette. I told him that I would like to see it one day. He was 93 years old and left us this past november. His son called me to pick up some repairs and I got the chance to see it today. All I can say is I have never seen anything like it before!! Exact scale model, All brightwork hand made and plated, working doors, sliding windows, All lights work, Evinrude 3HP outboard powerhead customized to fit in the boat, custom made twin counter rotating gear box, dual wet exhaust, full trailer to haul it around,I still cannot believe it. He said that I can bring my camera and take as many pics as I like. I'll post them up for all to enjoy.

Tom, Not for sale. I'll try to see if I can take the cabin off to get some good shots of the powerplant/drive system.

Alright, that will be cool. You think they will fire up the engine? Do you have a camcorder? (hint hint)
