1963 Oldsmobile Starfire
Kit: Jo-han
Size: 8.5 inches, 1/25 scale
Completed in 1988

This IS your father's Oldsmobile.

A more honest rendition than the artwork on the kit's box.

Don't laugh, your daughter might be in this car!

Modifications were made with a Dremel rotary tool and a Bic lighter.  The wire-hanger antenna is steel wire.

Low mileage...gas mileage, that is!

The body and interior colors are Krylon spray paint. Details, rust and mud splatter are Model Master enamels.

This model won the "Most Humorous" award at the Long Island Auto Replica Society
(LIARS) 1993 Model Expo. If this was your car, would you find anything funny?
