1970 Plymouth Roadrunner
Richard races two types of cars for 1970. One was the Roadrunner the other was the Superbird. The Roadrunner was raced on smaller tracks. This kit started as a Monogram Street stock Roadruner that has been heavily modified by "kitbashing". Kitbashing is a term modelers use to explain borrowing from other kits to modify an existing kit.Dirt track car is below
