This is the 1984 All Pro Camaro of Glencoe, Alabama's Micky Gibbs. I've always liked black race cars, and Gibbs' cars always looked more like show cars than race cars. He didn't run that great in '84 but would get much better, winning 7 races in '87 and even going all the way to the Nascar Sprint Cup series (Called Winston Cup back then).
Built from the Revell ASA kit. Paint is plain ol' Model Master black.

Thank you, scott, and yes, they are really nice kits. I wish they would reissue them with modern bodies and updated components, but that'll never happen.

A person could almost use this kit with a bit of modifications and create a Late Model Stock Car model out of this. Like the idea and may give it a whirl.
