    Here are a couple more shots. I really need to take new pics with a better camera.

    That's nice work, Micah. Back in 94 there was a company that produced the 94-95 style SC bumpers so people could update that Monogram/Revell kit. I remember the company was located in Carpinteria, CA, but I have no idea whether the company still exists or whether those parts are still available.

    Here is one I did to look like my SC:



    I see you have the paint's on this replica but what about the tint's???

    I spent a lot of time on the interior....couldn't bring myself to black out the windows. Just flat out never got around to putting stripes on the hood.

    Brand Name of Original Model

    I realize this thread is over nine years old... What manufacturer made the original car that you modified? Been trying to find this generation TB diecast- any scale, any color- probably for five or six years now. The graphic showing the undercarriage won't let me zoom in to see the brand name. Was it Greenlight like the hood?

    I got that much sitting here

    [QUOTE=OxmanW So the question is....does anyone have $200,000 (give or take) laying around to get this going?[/QUOTE]

    I got that much just sitting here, trouble is it is all in cars.. Just this last one would have been a great down payment....lol. Oh well at least I did have it but not any more....rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..
