Not really into the modern wheels, but that's a nice model.  Pity the moulds were modified, leaving us with the ugly 1970 iteration.  I'd much rather have a reissue of the '67.

Gorgeous Pontiac! Love your models Steve! My dad had a 68 so I love late Pontiacs...

Hi Steeve!

Great work, your patience paid-off! I'm impressed by what seems a perfect windshield shading effect... Airbrush?

Beautiful looking cruiser. The paint job looks great and the perfect color. The stance is just where you would want it.

I knew I wanted to use those wheels on the car even before I had a color picked. I really like them but they sure are hard to get.

Fantastic build, the 67 Pontiac's are in my opinion the best looking of all the years, your Bonny looks perfect, a great addition to your collection.

I can't say that I really like the wheels either, but they're a hell of a lot better than most of the modern chrome wheels that you see!

 

Very nice work Steve!

This car lends itself to the mild custom treatment! Looks beautiful! Love the paint – it really shows off the sculptured profile.

Lots of trouble, but looking at the model, one could say that it was worth it. Very nice build.
