This view say it all -- this car was built to win. Steve made the tonneau cover from tissue paper soaked in diluted white glue and painted it with Testors "Leather". The driver's scarf is also glue-soaked tissue. Steve dreated all the lettering and numbers with a Berol Prismacolor white art pencil so that he wouldn't have to deal with the decals silvering on the flat paint.
