The Indy 500 is called "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" and the Corvette, "America's Sports Car". During the 62nd Indy 500, for the first time ever, a Corvette brought the racers to the line. The selected '78 Vette was powered by a 350 cubic inch V-8 engine. It probably could have given some of the racers a run for their money.
Curtis Caden This was the great paint experiment. I painted it with chrome silver and then tried to clear coat it with Testors Gloss Coat. It washed the paint partially off and dulled the finish. I stripped it with DOT3 brake fluid and then repainted it in the chrome silver. Not quite what I was looking for. Today I ordered the 1978 Corvette Pace Car from Revell. My plan is to paint it steel on the top and aluminum on the bottom and then hopefully get a good Gloss Coat on it. Another learning experience. Es-haq and Ivo, I am glad you like it. My wife had one just like it back in the day and I tried to do this one the way she remembered her car.
