Gee D, Did you just give up on sleep altogether? Or did you inherit an hobby shop?

Hi Mark. Just digging around in the stash a while back and thought it would be good to review some of the old classics! Not sure which decade I will get around to building these 🤔

Cheers, D

D,
Excellent review.

While I've always been in the minority of my group of friends being a sports car kind of guy. The Chevy SS 396 was a special car to me, as it was all about only one thing: Getting down the Quarter Mile faster then anything else in it's class. And the big 396 could certainly do that.

Looking forward to the day when the kit is on your Bench.

Excellent review Damian.

The '65 is my favorit Impala. I just love those round taillights.
I have both of these kit's, in my stash. Gorgeous kit's.
