The Chevette is a new one on me, and Google keeps bringing up the other Chevette.  Does anyone have any background on the real car?

Times two!! New (old) ones pop up all the time!!

Fun thread to check out, until the Photophukit debacle ruined it (appreciate being able to post directly to this forum).

I've wanted to do my dad's Mercedes 190 sedan that I grew up with, had no seatbelts, airbags, ABS or air conditioning (how did I survive?).  I would hope it looks better than the box art.  I found an obscure model collector dealer, price was crazy.

This is another oldie . The Box art is way better than the model . It is one of the pioneering Plastic Model Car Kits . I have a few of these types . Ask , I will post ; Rolle Royce , Allard , Jag XK 120 , Talbot Logo , Nash Healey . I have the Pegasso WIP . I am missing the Aston Martin Aston Martin BD 3 and this Mercedes . The T-Bird and Corvette , I will not spend the Big Bucks for when I have highly Detailed later efforts in my preferred 1/25 scale .   Thanx ..

Thanks for the information.  Only when one has a direct connection with a car, would one be crazy enough to spend the $$.

That's me on Prom Night.  The car's battery died at the restaurant, needed my dad to rescue me, switched to the Honda Civic CVCC.
