Funny you should ask, "Super Fuzz" is the last model I finished.  I wasn't too great a fan of the Monogram kits, as they seemed merely to be jumping on the monsters-in-cars bandwagon.  But that type of model is especially suited for many interpretations, which is always cool to see.  Here's what I came up with:

I build, therefore I am.

That's a really, really nice build! I don't know if Monogram jumped on the bandwagon so much as they corrected an oversight, by finally putting into kit form the work of one of the best "Weirdo Hot Rod" artists, Stanley Mouse (who first began producing his airbrushed T-shirts in 1959, after meeting and working with Ed Roth).

If only Revell would reissue them, with new molds, sized up to match the Roths and Weird-Ohs in scale. Am I unrealistically asking too much?

No! Send Revell a letter.

And quality wise the Monogram Fred Flypogger kits were better than the Hawk Weird-Ohs.

How about using a super Fuzz head as part of a crazy, clean-cut blonde surfer dude?

'Drinkin' a shake instead of a brew.

Well that's an interpretation I haven't seen before!  Nice, seamless conversion, Bats.
