Remember Mark Hamill and Annie Potts cruising in this car?

How talented and brave would you have to be to model this car? Lots of both –

“This master (shown above) is my (Phantomphan’s) work. The car is in about the same shape. My 9-5 has taken a lot out of my hobby time. I will be back in high gear in September. I still plan to do this car.”


Update May 27, 2006:

As far as I know, there is still no resin of this car.

In Response To: Phantomphan – any chance for this one? *PIC* (David Palmeter)

Well, I have wanted to do a Corvette Summer. I have several to do on my want list. I’m going to have to be careful on which ones to pick. Some of the ones I have cast, didn’t sell but one or two copies.

Thanks for the inspiration.

  1. Love this car! When I was a teenager in the 80s I remember that there was a silent auction for this car. Forgot where I heard about it, probably from a car magazine. I mailed for an info packet. Wish I still had that info. I’ll have to rewatch this movie again.
