That’s what I was thinking... Great sense of humor! Oh, and a great and unusual paint job as well?

Not sure if this car has been posted here yet, but I think this is really cool! It makes me wonder if this could even be nicely done on 1/24 scale???

I like this paint treatment. Now you have to explain how you got the paint pattern in the panels.

Wow, lots of stunning paint jobs! Here is my favorite paint job by far. Revell 41 Willy’s. I was very proud of this one by receiving a people’s choice award at the NNL 15 show in Milwaukee 2007. Yes, 14 Year’s ago! Colors are HOK Candy Apple Red over Duplicolor Champagne.

I was about 10 when Don Emmons wrote in Model Car Science that Swirladelic paint jobs were cool. That would have been 1970, maybe. I still have most of it. Sure made the graphics hard to read.

Looks great Craig. Another testament for Acrylic Craft Paint. As I've said, easy to mix, generally seems to dry fast with little or no orange peel and easy clean-up. Lots of colors too and cheap.

Nothing special, I just think it turned out to be a nice combination.

Beautiful Buick; black with red interior is always sexy!

Like red and white I call it a 'cop-out colour combo' Lol. They always look good together in any combination on almost any car!
