Nice choice. If this thing ends up looking anything like OLD SMOOTHIE you are going to end up with another great build. Cool.

Light blue body with a white top. Also, for a name play around with the letters in OLDSMOBILE.

We all have a pair. Oh, you mean dice . Build it bold and it could the "The Boldsmobile " Are you going to open it up at all ? Blue and white sounds good.

ha! thats great ray!

nah, im not gonna open anything.......it seems like when i do that i lose interest. i guess i hate makin door jambs! its easy on a early 30s car, there really isnt a door jamb to speak of......but one this new, i usually get discouraged.

cheers

Are those whitewalls the ones that Don specifically tooled up for the kit, or are those one of his standard offerings?

Those look good for this. I might add them to my rep-stock.
