About

This actually is a model car that I built over 10 years ago and it is still in one piece. It has won many trophies and ribbons since it's debut. It was built from an old Ertl or Monogram kit. I painted it with a custom mixed color of teal blue. It has felt interior, custom made fuzzy dice, hand painted gauges, all trim is hand painted, hand painted actual Nebraska License plate correct for the era the model was built, hand twined carb springs, custom wiring in the engine compartment, valve stems in the wheels, sanded slicks to look like they really have been driven on, 4-speed linkage, fuel lines to the fuel tank, and all hoses, clamps, etc made out of wire etc... It has won a best of category trophy at Hobby Town and a first place ribbon at the AMT/Ertl Models, Hot Rod Magazine, and Championships Auto Show Sponsored Model car Regional contest in Omaha, NE in 1993.
