Looking for a model car
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:21:18 PM »
Hi all

My daughter is right into Supernatural and I'd really like to make the car for her.

It's an Chevy Impala 67. Does anyone know where I can get a model kit of one please?

Thanks

Sounds like you may not be able to find a 4-door kit for the 67 Impala

Thought as much in my searches over the last few days.

I kind of hoped someone might know of a quirky store (physical or otherwise) that does one that Google wasn't reporting. Especially possibly in the US as it's a US motor

Thanks though

^Yep. Looks like there are plenty of diecast versions available.

Yeah. I bought her a small one. But I wanted to make one for her.

Perhaps I could buy the two door and make it a four door.... :-\

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

there are simply no 4 door versions of that car from that year that I can find other than the ones I listed.

Star knows his models. That's going to be definitive.

Star, any advice on conversions?

just try to get the $100 model or a scale replica.  that kind of conversion is not an easy task.
