Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

I decided I needed fresh Hot Wheels for my desk at work, so I pilfered the 'incoming duplicates' pile and settled on this Chevelle 396. Upon extraction, I realized the paintjob is sub-par around the window surrounds, and there are plenty of stray pieces of tampo all over the left side.

Went ahead and used a fine-tip sharpie to touch up the stripes in a few spots, and I decided to try some blacked out "center caps" on the wheels. I think it'll work pretty well as a display car, but I imagine this one will eventually donate it's shell to a custom project.

Bottom line: Love the casting. Paint quality could've been better.
