    I think there is one (non ambulance) that made a quick appearance in one of the Airport movies (think it was Airport '75) as a airline shuttle bus. I saw the wheels seemed WAY to tucked in. Thought it was the TV or something.

    But this is simply cool!

    1977 Cadillac Coupe Deville
    So after 15 or so years of being in parts, I am finally restoring the vary first kit I got as a kid. My dad bought this one for me from a hobby shop (looooooong gone) and the hobby began. Over the years I resprayed it, added chrome foil, changed the interior color, etc. Dropped it into a vat of brake fluid for a few hours and all the crummy layers of Krylon paint vanished.

    This time I went with GM "Light Driftwood Metallic" with a chocolate brown interior and half top. The bumpers I had with the kit are for '78 but they are pretty beat up from being used as a childs toy, so are the wire wheel covers. So I used a nice clean set of '77 bumpers and '76 wheel covers from the Modelhaus.
