Because race car.
I know the gold accents don’t tickle everybody’s fancy, but this car just stood out to me in a bin of older mainlines at Walmart on Friday night.
I might do some customization as others have, but overall I really like this cast. The matte paint and the somewhat realistic sponsorship decals and livery are certainly a highlight.
As my hunt for Corvettes has focused in on rarer casts that will have to be eBay’ed, I think I’ll expand my mainline searches to include classic Chevys. Hot Wheels has certainly had some great Chevy casts over the years. This is a good starter.
