Done to replicate my own car, purchased shortly after I turned eighteen. When I finally scored an annual kit a few years ago, I painted it Model Master burgundy, and did a black interior exactly as my 1:1 was. The engine is blue, because that's what color it was painted by the local high school shop class that rebuilt it. 390, 4 barrel, Hush Thrush mufflers with Thrush resonators. You knew it was me from about three blocks away.

Nice.  You must have been a popular dude in high school!  I love seeing replicas of cars of our youth or that have some special meaning.

Very cool SFD.  To build a replica of your own car is always fun. Great looking car.

What a beautiful car!

 

I like the early-mid '60s Mercurys, and that one is simply gorgeous.

Kind of ironic that you said that, Chris. :rolleyes:

I bought this car in the fall of '82, and sold it a year later for the same thousand bucks that I'd paid.

Eight years later, while my then girlfriend and I were at the local Cruise Night downtown, gazing at all the cool cars at the show, lo and behold there it was. :o

Completely restored, of course, and looking gorgeous. Only a couple years after that these cars were going for $25,000 - 30,000, in that kind of shape. :wacko: But I still get my dream car, it's just smaller now. :lol:
