Model of a real car seen driving down Memory Lane
October 8, 2016 in Automotive
Here is my just finished last night 1/25 scale Revell 1969 Chevy Nova SS, stock version.
The very fragile exterior rear view mirror disappeared today, I must have accidentally breathed nearby or something….
A car about 95% identical to this was what my future wife was driving one day in January 1978 when I first saw her. Being a 19 year old guy at the time, and even at fairly long range, my radar was very sensitive to blonde haired chicks, so I was distracted from my work surveying the gas station beside the grocery store where she was parking when I saw her. Turned out a friend of mine knew her, he was dating her sister, so he introduced me and the rest is history, we were married in 1982 and still are today.
Her Nova was a little darker shade of blue and wasn’t a “SS” model but did have the same fancy wheels this kit does… but I wasn’t looking at the wheels back in January of ’78….
This is finished in Testors Icy Blue rattle can spray, and I included one image of it along with a truck of mine from “back in the goodle days”
I would love to be able to find and build a kit of a ’67 Dodge Polara, my first car, but don’t think anyone makes one. I paid $50 for it and it was a good car.
