This is one of the few builds of mine that has a deeper meaning to it. Mom's first car was a car just like this one. When AMT reissued "The Cat", I told her about it and showed her a picture. She responded with "Thats the car!" So upon discovering the right color paint at Lowe's of all places, I got down to building. Its all OOB, but I added the exhaust tips as my own little touch. Now, it was a long time ago so certain liberties had to be taken, such as the engine and wheels, but the overall look is there. I still need to find a picture of it somewhere, maybe one that shows the rear so I can make a correct plate for it.

It's American Traditions by Valspar. The color name is Woodland Olive, and was applied straight from the spraycan.
