Hi Bill,

The paint on my 2008 HHR is called 'Merlot Jewel Metallic Clearcoat' and the wheels are from Moon Equipment . They carried the only 'Halibrand style' wheels that would fit on Chevy HHRs at the time. There may be others now.

I bought the car/truck new in late 2008 when the dealer was having a really hard time selling a 'loaded' panel truck. I've always liked 'sedan deliveries, and here was my chance to have a totally dependable and economical interesting vehicle.  It's strictly a toy to me....not a daily driver and it doesn't see even rain, let alone snow.  I also have a regular HHR wagon that I use as a daily driver.

In Topic: 1924 Bugatti 35 - 1/20 Casadio/Revival Double Build

29 May 2015 - 05:37 AM

Hi Jurgen,   Not only have you overcome the Casadio kit's shortcomings, you've made exemplary models and also, as you always do, photographed them beautifully. Congratulations!

 

I've built a few of them over the years and, like you, I was always amazed that at their high price point, so many of the parts and assemblies were not totally sorted out for fit or completion.. If I remember correctly, the Bugatti had no steering tie-rod connections to the wheels/spindles. I think that their appeal, back in the day, was that they were one of the first companies to supply fairly realistic looking wire wheels on some of their models.
