It’s a pretty decent kit they put together.
Uses their own multi panel aluminum bed and tail gate, slightly modified Dodge Caravan taillights and the back glass is out of GMC Colorado, the little quarter window panels keep enough room for seat adjustments so you’re not just sitting upright and a near 900lbs payload.

This one was for sale for like $18.5k with 100+k miles.

My sister just mailed me these along with 6 other prints. These used to be framed and hanging in my grandfathers office over his drafting table.
From 1979 or 1980.
Cord was his favorite car manufacturer and he loved the L29 Cabriolet; In his lifetime, he unfortunately had to settle for a ‘73 Mercedes 220D.

Not 100% sure, but I think this illustrator, Steve Amos and the print company, Misty Mountain Productions used to do a lot of print work back in the day for different car magazines and different toy boxes, things like slot car racers and model cars, ect...

Same as here in Norway 69-. But we're kind of used to it, cause the the taxes on gas has been insane for decades here.
On friday the prices in my area was 10 dollars a gallon. The governtment steals about 70% in taxes even though we are a oil producing nation.

Well, it's expensive to drive a V8 here. But I refuse to go electric or boring euro turbodiesel.

That's exactly what they're forcing everyone to go to . Electric / battery powdered cars are dangerous. There's got to be some kind of under lying medical risk they're hiding.
