Thanks Robert

I'm open to a street Laguna for sure, since I want to build the Cannonball Run car. So if Tom is open to it (after the other two cars are done) I would be open to working with him on it.

Hey Kevin, thanks for the pics! I've been thinking of buying that kit, but now when we might see a Resin body of '74 Chevelle, I don't need it, actually. Looks like great kit, would be good basis for Stock '74 Chevelle body.

Well I didn't expect anybody getting interested in this bodystyle at any time! It was so put down at the time it came out. Especially after so many years of succesful designs this one seemed bloated by comparison. But for some reason, they have aged much better than I would have thought. I think all 73-76 Lagunas and the 75 Malibu Classic are the best looking of the bunch. Looked even better in black! With 8 inch wide Corvette rally wheels and dual exhausts!

Yes. I'm taking the Chevelle with me this Sunday (Oct. 7), and giving it to Kevin of Missing Link. I understand Jeff Ballard will be involved as well. Jeff is really good at getting that final polished look on a master. I'm looking forward to building these kits.

I must add that I have no idea how long it will take between the time I hand over the master and the kit becomes available.

I do intend on doing the Laguna next. Bench seats or buckets and console? Opinions?

I'm a big fan of mix-n-match (commonly referred to as kitbashing) and the more options there are the better, but if I gotta pick one I concur, let's do buckets and console. The Laguna deserves it. :D

Does anyone know who is the builder, or what is used to build it?

That is most likely the 1974 Chevelle by AMT (or the Model King issue) converted to street form.

It's going to be cool when these Chevelles start getting built. I can't wait to see what everyone does with it!

At least you know one person that will modify it to be a Buick Century instead? :P
