Yeah, it's costly. I couldn't find a complete kit when I was searching so I got a couple built kits to break down and rebuild. I'm working on that Jag scene and I have two bulldozers so I may try to create the end scene too. And those dozers and cheap either. At least they were complete new kits.
I thought it looked pretty good to me. I own one of these Road Runners low mileage original show winning car. Only thing you got wrong in the writing portion is that these cars also came with the 360. And these cars were faster than the same year vette. Only thing that could outrun these trucks was the Little Red Express trucks cause they did not have the emissions to deal with. Not cat converters air pumps or anything like that. It's not your fault either, but the kit got the drivers side exh. manifold all wrong too. It's up swept like the old 70's 340 piece that went on the Duster.
I've got one half built stored somewhere in a box. It had both engines. And fender flares and race parts and stock steel wheels and racing wheels in it. It came in a plain white box with black ink. I think it was an amt/ertl box. It was some kind of signature series or something special like that. I cant remember what was on the box now. I got it off e bay a few years ago. I was going to build a race car out of it, but the engine sit in it funny. Never could get it to lay in there flat like it should. I figure if I get back to it, it's going to get the 4 put in it and I'm going to do the Get Smart car out of it. It's not signature series either, someone on here will see it and know what I'm talking about.
I saw that black Caddy when it used to sit outside in front of Johnny's house when I was a kid. There was no walls or gates or anything. My dad drive up in this circular drive and we looked but did not get out of the car. It was parked in the grass beside the drive in his front lawn.
Plumb Crazy cars only had black interior from all the real cars I have seen and dealt with. Even my Moms Demon had black interior with PCP color. That's not PCP by the way. PCP is not metallic like yours.
