Thank You. As you can see, I am crazy about Camaros. I had 2 in the one-to-one world for myself, a '78, which I am building a replica of using a MPC annual, and a '91, which I built a replica of while I had the car. I sold cars for 30 years, so I had quite a few of them for demos in the '80's, and sold quite a few too.
I made my own grille, using pieces from the Model Car Garage Photoetch.

You are bringing out My '70's show with that Eldo. I love the silver. I was able to get all of JoHan's '70's Eldorados to build, including the elusive '74 and '75. My big problem is painting, as I cannot paint in the house. I have to get back on the '71 as it is so close to being finished. That Nomad and Jag are sure tobe beautiful when done.
I really like the mid '60's Rambler Americans. That one looks like a formidable restoration, and I know you are up for the job. I have the '64(unbuilt), '65, Hardtop turned into a convertible) ,'66 Hardtop, and a '66 Convertible, that was this...
and where it is now
Fortunately, the person I got it from gave me some pieces from the S/C Rambler. I filled the hole in the hood, and recreated the center bump. The original '66 hood is not available in resin, but I bought a few S/C Ramblers for donors while they were cheap. If you need a 6 cylinder engine, Replicas & Miniatures Co. of MD has one in their line. All of mine will be 6 Cylinder Cars..
I may have to do a series of '60's Fords in the near future. I have a '63 Ford Galaxie XL Convertible calling my name. Having owned a couple of them, and growing up with Dad's and my Uncle's Cars, I am a Top Down kind of guy.
I finally got to take some pictures of the Wildcat as it sits today.
I made the decision to do the car with a vinyl roof.
I used 1/2 round styrene rod for the mouldings, and 1/4 round rod for the seams. I am going to remove the wire wheels and replace them with a set of Buick Chrome Wheels. The car is going to represent a Super Wildcat (425 V8 with 2-4 Barrels), 4-Spped, Red Car, Black Roof, Red Interior.
I like where you are going with this one. I have a black on black '62 in my collection, just like the one Perry Mason Drove, except that mine has baby moons on chrome reverse rims mounted on white stripe tires. If you would like I can photograph it and post it.
