Strombecker Pontiac.

Postby dge467 » Wed Mar 16, 2016 5:02 pm

I had picked up the green one awhile back missing the roof of course. I bought the orange one for real cheap money and it had the roof still. I vacuformed a roof for the green one. I painted it from the inside and glued it on with white glue. I also painted the driver a bit and the steering wheel. I have to add a head to the driver to the orange Pontiac next. I enjoy getting these old slot cars back on the track.

Nice. I've got some red and blue ones, but I've never seen a green one.

Thanks! Rusty, I like both, but I have to say I like the Strombecker's a bit better. They are a lot closer to 1/32 scale also.
