I have this Trans Am lanquishing on the shelf and it is in need of a rebuild. I have been toying with the idea of converting it to McQ's '73 Trans Am. Now, if you are not familiar with McQ, here's a little back story. McQ is a motion picture starring John Wayne and it was released to theaters in 1974. McQ is a police detective living in Seattle, Washington and he, like many other detectives on TV and the movies, has his own style of detecting. He becomes embroiled in a case of drugs and murder while trying to deal with corruption within the Police Department. His vehicle of choice is a dark green '73 Trans Am, which seems like an unlikely car for the Duke due to his size. The dark green color harkens back to Steve McQueen's Bullitt and his '68 Mustang GT as a bit of a tribute.
I present to you my Pontiac Trans Am that I built back sometime in the '90's.
For now, my plan calls for Model Master #28120 Fathom Green Metallic. I do believe that the McQ Trans Am was Brewster Green but none of that color exists in hobby paint and I am not about to special order any paint.
First order of business is deconstruction and a good cleaning! Then, it'll be prep for paint.
More to come...
