Help with a Modified race car

I am thinking of making a modified race car. If you have made one, what are your recommendations? I do plan on looking for a detailed engine as it is mostly exposed.
This is an example.

Welcome to our little corner of KitMaker Network.

I’ve never gotten around to building any of the Nascar Modified classes, but that’s going to be changing sooner then later, as I’ve just ordered two Salvino jr classic Nascar kits. I only mention those kits as the 1/24 sale V8 small block engines are pretty well detailed right out of the box, and there’s a ton of details you can add and or buy.

As for existing kits, about the only ones I do remember are either AMT or MPC in 1/25 scale.

Looking forward to following along on your build blog here.
