Richard, welcome mate. Great to have you on board ! Any idea what you might be building ?

Rob, very cool kit. It would look superb and true-to-life with any sort of Hemi powered roadblock strung up behind it !

Cheers, D

Hi Damian.
I have a 1971 Charger in my stash any suggestions for a Chev to put up against it would help.

Richard, since you're going with a big ole' 71 Charger, it would be cool to build a chevelle or nova to go with it. Similar size, weight, etc. Here in the states Walmart sells a Revel chevelle for about $13.00.

I need someone to make some custom decals for my chevy if anyone is interested. I'll need a gay pride flag for the roof and some custom plates for the rear with the drivers name "Ben Dover".

I've seen that exact decal set in almost every boxing of the 'Cuda, so you should have plenty of spares at home mate!

DID I READ THAT RIGHT???? VonCuda said it would be cool to build a Chevelle !

Hermon, my friend, you are slowly realising the truth!

I see you have the description of the Charger spot on as well, they've usually got a "big ole'" in the side of the engine block, or in the floor pan, or the exhaust, or . . . never mind, you get the picture.

Cheers, D

Nice choices Richard, looking forward to seeing them built up. Well, looking forward to one of them, I suppose I will have to learn to tolerate the second one.

Now, you need to declare yourself, be ye Chev or be ye Hemi?

Chev all the way !
I have to admit that I owned three Dodges in the distant past and a few Fords I hope this will be forgiven?
The wife and I both drive Chevs.

Actually, an even match would be one MOPAR and several dozen chebbys. I'm gonna try and round up some paints this weekend at our only remaining model supply shop here in town.

Here is an obvious idea for a campaign ribbon. Resizing may be necessary. Changes can made by anyone.

Darrell, that ribbon makes sense to me. Was the campaign ribbon for the first go-around similar?
Now, where do I find a kit of the Hyundai I drive? Oh, wait, this is for the car we see ourselves driving!

I love me a sixties Chevy big-block sleeper ...and I'll throw together something MOPAR too, if I have to.

Hmmm, that's a hard question to answer as they hardly ever break down.

As far as that picture goes, what you don't see is the poor dodge with a dead battery behind the guy in red. Poor young lady couldn't get her car started and well, Chevy owners are always ready to help out the lower class vehicles.
