    Lightning McQueen : Look at all those trophies
    Doc Hudson: You look, All I see are empty cups.
    In the end that's all they really are, Just things gathering dust.

    Your correct that it's off on the 75 kit, But Maybe someone can cast a corrected one in resin. Or even better Revell could make a 75 Cutlass Supreme 442?

    Thanks Charlie, The roof was toast. The new roof came from a Revell 77 Monte Carlo, And still need to replace the front bumper on that 74.

    The brown one is 1974 and the blue is 1975. The 74's roof was broken badly and needed replaced.

    Please don't blame the farmers as they are not making money on this ordeal! My grand mother had a farm and barley made much at the end of the year. Remember this: Famer has to pay for the seed, furterlizer, Fuel to plant, spay to keep weeds down, More fuel, Repairs on farm eqipment, food, insurance for the car's crop's equipment, Land taxes, propane to dry (if they have bins)  Then if it's a bumper crop year they get less for the crop, the middle man and big corperations are the ones making the big Money on all this! Ethyl has been around along time, Most of us have see the gasoline ads  where the customer say's fill'er up with ethyl. Those ads or from the 1950's< then the gasohol craze of the 1970's-80's also hit.

    I and many others haven't been able to use our Wal-Mart money cards (Visa/Debit) for the last two days the whole systems F'd up globeably!  frustrating that one cant access their funds thus not able to pay bills and other needs! Also Wal mart never posted any news about this problem and they act like it's nothing to get upset about!

    All I can say by the email that I had gotten from revell stated that a Flat hood version maybe in the works for next year.

    Since my first car was a 75 Olds Cutlass Supreme. Using the 77 Monte Carlo will be the closest way to do that car, Just wished Johan would have done it as a Supreme! I thought I did see a Johan 75 Cutlass Supreme promo once But never seen one since. That was in the mid eighty's at a Hobby Shop in Springfield Ohio, Which had long since closed. Maybe the owner of the shop got it from Johan But then Johan decided not to mass produce that version.

    I Think that the 442 will be the next one to be done of this kit, sometime next year maybe?

    Since being born in 1967 I have lots to choose from, But it all came down to this one!

    Anyone buy an extra Revell 77 Monte Carlo That they are willing to part with? I bought a Johan 74 Oldsmobile that the roof is toast on and need a Monte Carlo to redo the Oldsmobile with. I also posted in the Wanted section about this.
