You and me both.

Would have made the finishing touch for this project.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I don't. Never felt the urge to build a vintage race car and now that Fred Cady has retired, decals to do it would be a major stumbling block.

Did any 1/20th models have minilites in them? That would be about the right size in 1/24/25 wouldn't it? I know MPC and AMT went through a faze back in the 70's where they were doing 1/20 stuff, so maybe there's a chance?

Hey John! As a guy who was around SCCA racing when Trans AM was in it's heyday, and as one who has professionally restored a Penske Javelin TransAm Champion car...I really like your take on the new Camaro!

As an interesting tie-in to this deal...A young lady on my block has just graduated from UCLA. Her boyfriend spent this last summer working as an intern at GM working on the new Camaro!!

I love the paint job.

I did a '06 Mustang in nearly the identical paint scheme.

It was supposed to be a parody of a car for a Blue Angel pilot.
