About “The Mean Green Machine”

(Because this is a model car, I'll only accept challenges from other models, diecasts, and toys for it.)

This was one of those models that I had to build as soon as I heard that it was coming out. The review in 'Scale Auto' magazine said it would definitely be in the running for their "Kit of the Year" award and, as I recall, it won. This model was an extremely enjoyable build due to it being a subject that hadn't been available since 1968 and it's excellent parts fit. It ws made even better for me since neighbors of mine when I was growing up had a car just like my model - That's why I chose the colors I did for it.
