I would also have to vote for the AMT 1969 El Camino Soapbox Derby kit. The ONLY one I have ever seen is the one I bought in 1970. Just about every other kit mentioned I have at least seen at one time or another but the El Camino, nada.
I had read that his survivors did not have the passwords to access the web site so they are unable to shut it down. Do not know if that is accurate info or not but it makes sense. I was always going to order his hot rod flathead V12.

I did this exact conversion just this year, used the MPC GTO funny car body. Which is a stock promo body & used the MPC 1972 GTO for chassis & interior. Not a perfect copy of an original '69 kit but close enough & it looks great.
First just about all the info you need are on the two flyers posted above. The toy show is open 9-2, $7 admission, the NNL is open 10-4, $10 admission. There is lots of free parking a couple hundred feet from the door. For your $10 admission you may bring in as few or as many models as you wish. Also we do not have a web site but we do have a Facebook page, search NNL Nationals. If anyone has any more questions please post them here or on the Facebook page. I will be checking both every couple days & will try to answer as many as possible. There is also a partial hotel list on the Facebook page.
