'70 Challenger convertible

This is an AMT 70 Challenger built as a non R/T convertible. The engine is the 440-6 pack with the obligitory shaker hood. The up top is a resin piece from drag city casting. The luggage rack is from an original issue 1972 Grand Prix. I call the paint "Magazine Cover Yellow". The wheels are stock Magnum 500s and the tire letters were done with a Gelly Roll pen.

Try mixing Tamiya yellow with their lime green, you'll get somewhere very close
