1/18 Christine

I found a 1/18 diecast '59 Fury and repainted/altered it to be as close to a Belvedere as I could. (The movie Christine was NOT a Fury - they only came in one color scheme from the factory, and it wasn't Red and White)

I'll take more pics, but my camera labeled this pic as "IMG1958", so I quit there :lol:

I eventually want to add superbright LEDs for her headlights, and an MP3 player in the trunk would not go amiss...

When I was 4 years old, Dad had a Belvedere just like that, only it was a Pastel Yellow.

Gotta picture of me and Dad sitting in it somewhere---I'll have to see if I can find it. :)

Oh man!

Pastel Yellow would look sharp! I hope you can find that pic :)

One of the old profs at my college had a Belvedere way back when.... he says it was a hell of a car.

Cool Cat :D

Funny you posted this today. I was just browsing Round 2s store today and seen a 1/25 Christine kit recently released. They have it as the Fury as well.

I'm wondering if that's the same kit as the one AMT released about 10 years ago. They sold some car kits prepainted, and you could see the body in the box thru a clear panel. It was marked 'Belvedere'. IIRC, most of them were black, but a few were red with white tops :twisted:

That could be. It is marked as a AMT kit. I kinda wish I would have seen the originals. It would be kinda cool to have a few different........incarnations..... :D
