I've made notes... :) Have an LS engine and Pegasus wheels. But, yes, to actually build it is another thing.. I'm not sure if I have modeler's block, too busy, or if I just spend too much time online...

So it sounds like you are starting to plan this one out, what kit is the LS from that you are going to use, I have not used any of the pegasus wheels and tires sets, there are few that I like

I got the engine from a Revell '02 Camaro SS...and I'm thinking of going w/ 19 inch Pegasus DZs..a multi-spoke rim that looks rather classy and fit for a Caddy, IMO..probably w/o the whitewalls, though..

Rob, those are very cool wheels. I think they'd look great as shoes for this model.

Don't think those DZ's would make a very good Pro Touring wheel, to much flex, especially with the weight this behemoth would be carrying. B)

Been waiting for this one for some time. Need to find some non-lowrider wire rims and white wall tires though. The rest of the hydro junk will go bye-bye too.

Try Modelhaus to see if the have the wheels for the Cadillac

Pro Touring has my vote! But no wire wheels, maybe a solid smooth wheel with the big fat tires........

This isn't much of a kit review, but figured this was the best place for this. I was thrasing-about in the Revell site, and I came across the Cadillac Lowrider. I knew it was being re released a few months ago (after the donk version of a while back) but didn't give it much thought. Upon further review of the instructions, I realized they actually did some nice stuff on this one. Revell re did the suspension giving some stock ride height options, and 'normalized' the interior. Gone are the gaudy pillow looking seat treatments. It still has opening trunk and from what I saw online can build to a nice Caddy. I did a search here and didn't come up with any discussion on this yet, but I will add it to my to-do list now. Just have to decide on an appropriate wheel treatment.

No worries mate, I didnt have to search, I just remember reading that thread and replying to it a few times, thats the only reason.
I have seen this kit in the LHS, not sure if I want to spend LHS prices though on it, I want to turn into a 4dr

I'm cool with doing it as the coupe, I don't think i've seen it in my local stores. I think its a good lookin car and would be a classy change of pace on my shelf.

I agree, two or four door, its still a good looking car, is this like the first one, where the bumpers and grill plated in gold instead of chrome?

I've got the very first issue of this and the only thing gold plated are the wheel inserts. :huh:

I was thinkin the same thing. I've been scouring around looking for kit wheels that would be appropriate for this build.
