Race cars change multiple times, sometimes within the same season ............... the car I saw at Amarillo Dragway had a red interior ............... here's a picture of the car taken earlier in the year at Tulsa .............. when I saw it in October, it had the blue lettering and the white under the "Cable" (like the Cady decals), but it still had the red interior  ...... it also had Cragar SS mags (I didn't have any Cragars so I used the Keystones from the kit) :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Great job, as always O.C. I like the subject a lot, and when the Model is built as nicely as this, it's one of my favorites. Nice job. B)
