The Super Coupe was part of the original line-up of Snapfast Slammers, and one of the few that was pretty good right from the box. I bought this as the Speedy Gonzales version of the model, but that was soon sanded and repainted into a more serious rod.

The paint job is Boyd's Grape Pearl with decals from AMT's Thom Taylor VetteAGIN kit. Wheels, rear tires, and shocks came from Monogram's Vandal kit, and the rear wing came from Tamyia's 1/20 Ligier Ford JS-11 indy car. This was a pretty simple kit, and the only problem I had was getting the front suspension together. Once again, I am pleased by the quality of these kits.
