Here is the AMT/Johnny Lighting Pontiac GTO, well I wanted to do this one as a Holden Monrao, but the transkit for was a little pricey , then when you added in shipping and the exchange rates for AUS, it was going to be close to or well over $50, for a front bumper and a RHD dash. I still need to finish the driving light, and make another US plate for it.
So I decided to see if I could convert the nose piece to the look like the Holden, well its close, but not good either. The car started off being black, it was one of the first bodys that I A/B, didn’t like it, stripped it, tried yellow, again had problems , after four more trips from the purple pond and 97% alcohol, I used Testor one coat star spangled blue, clear coated it with Future
So I decided to come up with a little story for this one. This is outback Jack’s car, he move to the states for work, but had to leave behind his beloved Holden Monaro, so after being here for awhile, he bought himself a GTO, since is was a Holden just with a different name plate. Then one night, he was ebay , and came across a nose piece to convert GTOs to Holden’s, well it was badly done piece, but he didn’t want to spend a lot of money either, so he got it, but it still didn’t cheer him up.
