    This 65 caught my eye. Check your local rite aid for one. $10 but can you believe ol tire kicking Ronnie got it down to $5 because it was missing a tire. 20190801_160720.jpg

    Well your gonna run slicks on the back so the one missing tire isn't that bad:cool:
    I actually did some mods on mine. The front wheels didn't turn much and I filed down some of the front where the "tie rods" were hitting a bracket and now I have full turning..
    Same with the hood, it wouldn't open up much either and did some tinkering so it opens up decent now.. Talk about being bored and no real car projects at the moment..!!

    LOL!

    On another note, they are little "tie rods" and do the same thing.:eek:
    I'll try to post a pic or 2 tomorrow..

    I have my 79 TA. It runs but needs a exhaust, new brake lines and other stuff to feel road safe..
    My 82 Regal Limited but that's just a 3.8 V6. Sentimental reasons as it was first ever brand new car..

    Never took it out of the box because it had a wheel broken off.
    However, I’m not reordering because it didn’t look up to Welly typical quality.

    Drivers door had large gap and door handle inferior.
    Paint didn’t look very good.
    Disappointing.

    It looks like you're also missing the mirror, Ronnie.

    They also sell the Riviera in silver and gold.
    There is also a GSX from Welly, in the colours yellow, red, black and white:

    Set it on fire, smash the windows in, stick a road sign through the windscreen and put it on Craigslist as a "Road House Limited Edition"
