ok, i think this name will work guys...... the color i am gonna use is a medium blue, so i thought about cobalt, and then just added its atomic weight to the end of it.....so now we have "cobalt 27"

sounds ok to me so far, but im sure the name will go through a couple changes before the final name.......any ideas, toss em at me.

i also thought of "cobalt cruiser".......but it kinda reminds me of the newer chevy cobalt.....

cheers

That Testor's lacquer gold is cool too.

This means you'd have to change the name to:

GOLD DIGGER

LOOT

BOUNTY


Something other than Cobalt.

I too must of missed the build/under glass post of ol smoothie but I'm sure glad you posted a photo of it. That thing is so freakin cool, I almost like it more then one of your other builds (forget what it is) thats yellow with the skull on the hood. I really like how you have this one sitting, tuckin a lot of white wall. Your builds are always a lot of fun to watch. I'll be sitting back watching and waiting on this one.

ok, ive changed my mind about the color AGAIN...... i think it will be white, i dont have any white cars in my collection. so white, with a 3 tone interior......2 different blues, and white inserts on the door panels and seats...

i changed the color because i dont have enuff of the paint i was gonna use left.... so lets see how many more times i have to change it before i make up my mind! LOL

progress comin soon
