I think this looks a little better...

although I realized while I was working on it that it's really sad to be investing this much time and effort in a Chevette. :D

the wheels are off a random cheap dollar-store car. I had to shorten the axles; you can see on the driver's side the ends are just twisted around to hold the wheels on. I know it's a step backwards to lose the rubber tires for plastic ones, but the size is just so much better. I jammed a really thin piece of wire into the bottom of the axle slot in the chassis, and I trimmed the little plastic nubs that hold the axle down in that slot, and voila--she sits level.

I just posted on another thread about how I hated the stance on that casting. Your version is far better, and I like the wheels better even if they're not rubber. Great job!
