It is humorous. I live around oodles of Mennonites. They all drive black cars because the color to them is "plain." But other people, like me for example, like black because it is a cool color, not plain. Maybe the Mennonites will have to change to brown or something.
There are several Mennonite churches near me. One is a wood building painted white. It is cool when the church lets out. All the cars are black. The church is white. The women all wear black dresses with those little white things on their heads. All the men wear black pants, white shirts, and black jackets. So you have the white church with all black vehicles with a bunch of people all dressed in black and white. It looks like a black and white picture while actually being in full color. I am tempted to hire someone to rush through wearing bright colors while I take a picture.
Looks good! I'm a big fan of that old kit. If you ever want to build a really killer chassis for one, the unit from the Revell '40 Ford convertible street rod is pretty great. Of course, that whole kit is worth building one or two of, as well.

Well it's done. Once again I learned a few things on this build. Testors Revving red lacquer over Duplicolor self etching and sealer primers. 292 Ford Y block from a '53 pickup truck wired and plumbed. Steering wheel from the AMT '59 El Camino model. Scratch built column,shifter and turn signal. Bucket seats out of a '64 GTO.Gauges,gas pedal and bumpers out of the parts box.License plate decal courtesy of UGV member Geerod.I'm not in love with the way the tail lights came out but that's the way it will roll. I love these old AMT kits...
