Ah, go for it. Only the real Mopar fans would recognize that color shouldn't be on a Ford lol. I for one think it'd look pretty cool.

I wish I had taken a pic of the rear of the car. I took the time to bend the spoiler (old school oval style) and painted the bottom half black so it would blend with the trunk. I mounted it with small screws and nuts, so it actually looked realistic. The S&S Speed Shop, the Woody's Barber Shop and number decals were custom made by Carl. He rocks!

Looking forward to seeing one in Plum Crazy! My dad had a 1970 Duster in Ice Blue with black trim. You don't see that color often. Tamiya has a color that's about identical and I have a McAllister Cuda body along with some AAR stripes from Carl that's just waiting to be dressed out. LOL.

Try HPI

Soaking the protoform tires in wd40 or liquid wrench overnight really helps.

I have 4 new sets of HPIís. The tracks I race at donít allow them.. I ask why they say USVTA rules do not allow them anymore.
