OK, I'll play: Torino/aluminum foil; Mustang/BMF; Olds/foil What did I win???
Tom, you've won an all-expenses paid trip to....your house!
Wait, the judges have just informed me that your first answer is only partially correct, it's a Torino Talledega. You have been awarded a consolation prize though, an 8-hour shift at your local McDonald's making the fries!
You are correct though, the Mustang is the only one with BMF. The Talledega has a strip of Detail Master Krome Foil between the tail lights, because the aluminum foil just wouldn't conform to the center badge properly. The Cutlass is 100% aluminum foil, to include the locks, door handles and side marker lights!
The look of the asphalt is only partly correct as yellow lines are usually painted on top of the grit.
Ken, the yellow lines are a reflective (Just like a real road) strip that came on the pieces of Stair Anti-Skid I bought at Lowe's to make this. It's an inch from the edge, so you have to cut carefully to get the lines spaced evenly. I cut a piece of 1/8" plywood, some 1" x 2"'s, nailed it all together, the carefully laid the Anti-Skid down. It's gotta be just right, because once you put pressure on this stuff, it's stuck in that spot. Once it was all done, I added some Railroad Ballast to the edges to simulate a shoulder, and then hit the "asphalt" section with some Flat Black to knock down it's shine. It allows me to take some pretty convincing pictures once the camera is set right, making it hard to tell at times if it's real or a model!
