    At the risk of going far-off-topic ... I see lots of Lobo 150 around . I just thought that it was a regional-specific (southwest U.S.) marketing ploy ! I've also seen one or two Peugeots with Baja California plates ; a number of Nissan Sentra ( I forgot the name applied to that model ) which stand out because they're sans the centre-high-mount-stop-light (those are built-in-Mexico models at that) ; and , sauver le meilleur pour la fin , the 1970 Dart GTS and the 1971-1977 Super Bee .

    Mexico (and just about every state / country south of the U.S. / Mexico border) got some really cool cars back in the day ! Stuff that just was not available in the U.S. or Canada (which , itself , had some cool , unique models , too) . Every so often I see a Mexico-market vehicle here ; I live ~100 miles north of the border .

    Personally --and I'm not alone in this-- I'd like to see an all-new-tooling 1969 Super Bee . The Monogram original is long in the tooth , being over 30 years old . Then there's its inherent inaccuracies ( namely : disc brake master cylinder ; Road Wheels [ colloq. , "Magnum 500" ] ; and its Plymouth rear seat embellishment ) . Don't get me wrong , it's a nice kit for what it is . However , it's time for a new '69 'Bee .

    Back in the day , one could order practically any colour from any manufacturer's paint chart , regardless of whose colour it was . There was a '71 Mach 1 Mustang around town that was painted AMC 'Sterling Silver' !

    The Monogram 1984 Mustang Convertible 5.0 LX !  One of my all time favourite kits ( in spite of some of its shortcomings ) .
    Those wheels , while beautiful , are a pain to find tyres for ( in the 1:1 realm ) , as only Michilin made them .

    Phantom Mark IV 1975 Corvette and a convertible at that ! Double-phantom !

    I've always like Rhiannon , esp for its use of the Celesta . Then of course , the Welsh folklore which influenced the song : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhiannon
    Gypsy is another personal favourite . The fact that Stevie mentions my favourite band by name in the song makes it okay in my mind ( ) : "So I'm back to the Velvet Underground / Back to the floor that I love..."

    I was just being a jerk , Harry ( ) .   BTW ; Scott Thurston was the keyboardist in the 1972-1974 lineup of Iggy Pop & The Stooges .

    Thanks , every one !

    Financial consideration . I've already got the enamel gloss coat .
    BTW , the colour in question is Inca Gold .

    Enamel Clear atop Lacquer Base ?
    Please refresh my memory ; is it okay to use an enamel clear atop a lacquer base (colour coat) ?  Namely , Testors One Shot colour coat with Testors Enamel Gloss Coat .
    Thanks .

    I don't wonder if it was some dealer brochure and / or a Hurst promo from 1983 ; perhaps even a calendar (note the stapled crease just below the '83's photo) ?

    Looks similar to the clear plastic that southwest U.S. toys eventually obtained as a result of the Sun . I had numerous toys with yellowed 'glass' and faded paint when I was a kid . I'd watch for how brittle that 'glass' is , too . The lightest pressure could crack the heck out of it !
