I have built most of these Hasegawa '66' curbside American cars. I built the Caddy years ago and thought it was decent for what it was.
I thought the Pontiac would make a neat low rider/mild custom. The kit has more flaws than the others of this series. But it was to test some Dupli-color Strawberry Red I got on sale more than anything else!!! I did add some Pegasus whells and lowered the car by not using the axle blocks. Some foil and that's about it. Too bad there are not more cars in the series and the are just a little better kits. I like the simple good looking build.

You did your best for what you had to work with - I know the series and it ain't too hot! For a one-day fun build, I think it came out OK. I have to find that paint! It's just the shade I've been wanting for a build I've had in mind for a while.

That Hasegawa release, is responsible for buying my first high $$$ vintage kit, I now have both (hardtop & 'vert) the Mpc '66 annuals of the Pontiac Bonneville.
You did great Dave, mine ended up in the trash, soon after the tires ate away the white plastic inserts...
