Charlie Magers' replica of his own 1969 Chevelle

Charlie gave the molded-on emblems a delicate appearance by foiling them prior to painting the car and allowing the paint to rub through to the foil as he polished the body. Speaking of paint, he used Dupli-color Garnet Red. He also used a length of guitar string to make the radio antenna. Charlie did deviate somewhat from making an exact replica when he used photo-reduced license plates from his daily driver. This minor discrepancy is easy to overlook, as they are Maryland Chevelle Club plates.
