Yep, that was hands down the best detail. My cars are #3 and #10 driven by guest drivers. I thought I had to work, but ended up being there for the whole event.

How about a shameless plug.

Kevin, where did you get the decals?

They should talk to you about that, because if it was legal, Im sure they would sell a few, but thats between you and them. Im sticking with the list. At least for racing.

I do have a Parma Bel Air still to paint. Should be fun in the parking lot. Or at the Street Rod show.

Now THAT is a beautiful picture. It looks like a real race car. I've never seen a vintage CLEAN race car. They usually have battle damage.

Bravo...

I have to give a public thank you to Chris AKA dodgeboy.

I posted looking for a used body for my 6 year old. He sent my the Cuda body and won't take payment for the shipping.

My son was already excited because the first thing he noticed in the picture was the Hotwheels logo, but Chris added my son's name to the side windows.

I wish you could have seen his face when he first saw it and then when he noticed his name on the window- even dad doesn't have that.
It's perfect for him, he's not worried about destroying a new body, but he's driving a body that looks like everyone on the track.

Again my thanks
