That Olds looks super. I didn't know those van wheels swapped out like that. I'll have to get a few - a buck each at WM.

OK. I have to ask. Where did the Chevette come from? I kinda like it.
Motormax's American Graffiti series. The Chevettes are also now out in the Fresh Cherries line as well.

Try this other Hobbytalk thread for some other pics. The Chevette pictured in this thread is in the American Graffiti series only this one has had the flames removed. ;)

In the day of the Chevette, we use to call it the Shove-it or the poor man's Vette. I don't think I ever saw a Chevette in the American Graffiti movie.

It's weird..it seems like Motor Max is using the 'American Grafitti' name just as a brand with no connection to the movie, which was set in 1962, IIRC..
