GET UP!!!! Everybody's gonna move their feet. GET DOWN!!!! Everybody's gonna leave their seat.

Nah... that was on the Dressed to Kill album. Indy would have to paint up a black and white Kamaro.

Pete, that is unbelievable.

Seriously, how much money does someone have to have to even THINK about buying that? The quality of a actual Camaro show car for that amount of money would be amazing!

They are stickers, I use the tire decals from a Tamiya F1 sticker sheet.

That's a great source Pete. Racing Champions has done a bunch of nice diecast muscle cars over the years. You can google them. Some awesome schemes too. I started collecting them but eventually stopped because it's an addiction!

You guys see these new Cleveland blower/scoops from RPM? RC Car Action did a product announcement on them. Probably not legal or aerodynamic for racing, but oh man do they look cool!!!
