A recent post of a beautiful Chaparral model got me thinking about my old survivors, now dirty, glue marks showing, yellowed, and decades old. Chaparral 2 An unknown slot car body. Chaparral - AMT 2A Chaparral 2A - Cox Chaparral - IMC 2E Chaparral 1 - what's left of a Scudreria Scale body Come on Chaparral fans, let's see your survivors.
Greetings, Intent on creating a coherent grid of factory-backed 1:18th SCCA Trans-Am entries even as my focus shifts from project to project, this would constitute the beginnings of a '70 Chaparral Camaro.
