As the title says, my Buick got into the "Scene by Readers" section of the July 2014 Hot Rod Magazine! Its on page 13 In the lower right corner. I didn't even know it was in there until after I had read half the magazine lol.

Thanks! No it's not a real GNX, if it was I would have kept it pretty much stock.

Very nice. I get Hot Rod so I will have to look for it. Did you ever build a replica of it ?

I remember seeing the car and reading your name and saying "That seems familiar, where have I seen that name before". Glad to see that your ride made it in, congrats.

YES! I saw it in there a few weeks after I got my copy. Figuring you'd be too modest to boast, I took the copy to my GF who had my camera so I could get a pic to post here but the battery was dead. Then I never followed through. Congratulations! That car has really come a long way and you did a fine job.

Congratulations Billy.  That sure makes you feel good to see your car pictured in a magazine, whether it's a 1:1 car or a model.

Super ride, Billy. Funny- I looked at those pics and said to myself- "There's a MISSOURI boy!" Recognized the hills right off.

Thanks guys! I appreciate it! I hope it didn't sound like I was trying to boast, I just thought it would be cool to share with everyone here :)

Ray, I started building a model of it but then I discovered the wheel openings on the revell kit don't line up from side to side, so I boxed it up. I'll get it back out soon and try to fix it.

Hi Dale, There's definitely no shortage of hills around here! Lol. They make great backgrounds for pictures.
