1955 Cadillac Eldorado, an entry level kit from New Ray (pic)
I found this one while hunting for parts recently, and, waiting for paint to dry, I spent a few minutes with it today.

I used two tools: a small philips head screwdriver and a small hammer to tap the wheels onto the axles. No glue, no paint (even though the interior calls loudly for help).

Considering that it has taken twice as long to post this as it did to build it, I know it won't shake any tremors into collectors. But it's kind of fun and at a very low cost if you can find any of these older kits. The Mustangs are IMO more accurate, and here's a Pontiac that I probably will never touch again.

One last look, and it's probably the first and last time this model will show up on the august Forum 43. Enjoy!

Nice car, but it's not august. It's september. (EOM) by Richard Nosker #28692.1
"August" as in honorable, high elevation, worthy; with the emphasis on the second syllable. (EOM) by David Holcombe #28692.1.1

Ohh..the humanity..where are the white wall tires.. ? (EOM) by Steve Jakubczak #28692.2.1
Make all that yellow white, give it white walls, and there's a decent basic model. (EOM) by Mark Lampariello #28692.3
