July Meeting Photos:

MAMA South member RexTurner started us off this month with a long distance submission from his West Miami, Florida home, before his impending move to new digs in the Copper State (that's Arizona, for those of you who, like me, never heard that state nickname before) where he will become part of MAMA West. Here he shares his last two Sunshine State builds. The first is a Revell 1971 Mustang Mach1 429, 007 "Diamonds are Forvever" kit on which he swapped in a different air cleaner as the Mach1 used in the movie did not have the ram-air option. The second is an AMT GT500 kit that was built box stock except for the addition of a few MCG photo etched parts.

Rick Donovan displayed his latest drag-racing quartet.

Russ Kirkpatrick went for a change of pace from the many Mopar builds he's done and brought this 1932 Ford Sedan Delivery street rod.

Lyle Willits' latest project is coming along nicely. This two-tone 1955 Chevrolet resto-mod will be receiving the engine shown below it.

Vinny Tufano combined a Darryl Starbird Predicta bubble top with a 1953 Corvette.

Here's Steve Buter's take on the classic Popcorn Wagon kit. He turned it into a surfer wagon replete with psychedelic surf boards.

Howdy Hoffman displayed a Hemi Hustler Barracuda rear-engined funny car and a second generation Chevrolet C-Series fleetside pickup truck.

Ron Thorpe displayed this built Revell "Chopped Hog" Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Derald Carpenter brought these four mighty Mopars for us to enjoy.

Bob Guarino showed us a couple of his current projects. All the chrome bumpers you see here were finished with Revell's "Chrom Spray" paint.

Club president Tim Powers finally finished this hot-rodded Jeep after more than four years.

Ben Dubit placed this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 street machine on the display table.

Ben's daughter, Everleigh Ann Dubit showed us her AMT 1980 Toyota Hilux SR5 4WD pickup.

Mark Wheeler displayed several of his current projects including a 1966 Chevrolet El Camino, an early 1970's Chevrolet Corvette, 1979 Chevrolet Chevette Hatchback, a C-6 Chevrolet Corvette, and a 1970 Ford Mustang wide-body conversion.

Leonard Harrod brought three works in progress: a 1980's Ford Thunderbird Pro-Stocker, a 1943 Willys Gasser, and a 16th scale Pro-Stock Camaro.

Sadly, I didn't see who placed these fine models on the display table.

The Pontiacs on Parade parking lot featured Timmy's newly completed Arnie Beswick build in the corner and a couple of Steve Buter's builds surrounded by figures.

Some of the action:
