I'm calling this one done. Revell 1966 GTO frame and floor pans. Tbird front clip and truck arm rear suspension, modified.  Engine/trans from a Sunoco Olds Cutlass kit. Scratch built drive shaft, oil tank, remote oil filter and braided plumbing. Fireball ModelWorks Holley carburetor.  My own custom cast resin body. Testor's Revving Red and Graphite Dust colors, Testor's wet look clear. Gold metallic 1 mm nail tape for pinstripes and Speedway  decals. Monogram 1/24 tires and wheels. Acetate windows. Dash and cage from unknown sources, mostly scratch built.
