I have to be honest, I didn't think the stripes were a good idea. I was wrong. Really works with that color car/stripe.
I was glad the supplier had a match close to the interior... In 72 there was only black or white... Graphics express now has multiple shades

Beautiful vert. Amazing how good looking the ginger interior is.

With bits of delay, welcome from the northern Netherlands!
During the early bidding this car almost ended up in the the Netherlands :)

Well that's good news. I figured you'd go with white, which would kind of clash with the green/brown and black would have been too dark. I think it turned out great!

Nice upgrades! The Magnums and the hockey stripe make it look like a different car, a whole different vibe!
