Terrific looking Riv!  And I'm relieved to know that I'm not the only one who models other people's cars recalled from distant memory.

Nice. I love the look of those mid-60s Rivieras. Great color too!

Very nice! I like that saddle/tobacco color on the interior. What paint is that?

Very clean looking build. Your teacher had good taste in color combinations. You said he had this Riv. and his wife had a green one also. Makes me think they used to pay teachers much better than they do now.

I'd say his wife was the real bread winner as she was the chief loan officer at the biggest bank in town!:lol:

Testors 1133 light brown

Had half a bottle that must have been 15 years old and was still not dried up, just thick. Added almost an equal amount of thinner and taped it to the blade of a sabre saw and let it run a while!:lol:
