My thoughts exactly! Don't know what it is about that orange Camaro, but it looks better than all the other 69s. Maybe the black rockers.
Although I never really liked the pudgy proportions of that Camaro casting, I have to agree with you. I like the new '69 Camaro casting much better and I'm looking forward to the variations on this one. Can someone say Yenko?

That Chevelle happens to be my favorite of that casting so far. Love the paint and wheels.

Actually, I like your patch and casting gig going on. I jumped in on the band wagon way too late on the chrome Toppers with patches and i think this is a really cool idea. Even if the cost was a buck more a blister, I'd like it.

FLOYDFROG, you should actually have an SS 454 patch for the Chevelle.
I agree that these are great castings. I love the wheels on the Chevelle.
Two other similiar castings that also get my vote are:

1969 RS Camaro

New casting 1970 SS454 Chevelle

Right you are Cobra! I have quite a few vintage car related patches & when I took that photo I couldn't find the SS454 patch, so I used the next available. I've been wondering when someone was going to call me on it :) Is this better? :wave:

Beautiful picture with corrected patch.
Wow! What else can I say other than "thanks for sharing".

Cheers. Cobra

I have to love that 71 Chevelle casting...........the very first car I ever drove was a 71 Malibu Sport Coupe. It was brand new at the time, my Dad had just bought it as a graduation present for my older sister. I was 12 years old and my Dad took me to a vacant parking lot and let me drive it around for about 20 minutes. I still have a soft spot for 71's and so, it is my favorite JL Chevelle as well.
