You are probably right. I'm just going off of a distant memory.

Thanks!

Yeah I've got it bad again. I still have to build the other car that came with this kit but I just ordered a 95 #3 Monte Carlo and a Darrel Waltrip #17 Western Auto parts kit. The latter is an AMT kit which I've never built so we'll see how that goes.

Edit: My wife thinks I'm crazy.

 I had that Waltrip kit myself and it came out nice once it was done. Is it the chrome painted one? I had quite a few built along with a bunch of military models and dioramas but when my wife and I separated, she cleaned house and everything I had stored in the garage went in the garbage...lol. So now I start over. The only thing I was able to locate was a Budweiser #8 Dale Jr Monte Carlo shell I had painted and decaled and a few military figure kits that were never started. Don't know how they survived!!! So here I am, a few years later trying to get back in the swing.

Thanks, and I hope to see yours soon.

I haven't been online in a while, I've been busy and honestly a bit lazy lately and haven't spent much time building. I've been tinkering here and there but I may try to get my next one done soon. I'll start another thread for it.
