(click the image to go back)
Tom Faletti goes out of his way to build models that
aren't likely to replicated by many other modelers. This
time around he's modeled the 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Super Stocker driven by Kansas City legend Terry Bivins.
Bivins was a multi-time track champion at several short
tracks (dirt and paved) across the Missouri and Kansas
region. He eventually ran NASCAR Winston Cup Series in
the mid-1970's, finishing 8th in the 1976 Dayton 500 and
being runner-up for the 1976 NASCAR Rookie of the year.
Starting with the AMT/Model King release of the Monte
Carlo Super Stocker kit, Tom added a vinyl roof using
Rustoleum textured paint. Tom added photoetched grille,
emblems, and hood pins from a variety of aftermarket suppliers.
He coated the body with Duplicolor Chrysler Hemi Orange
engine paint topped-off with a set of custom decals that
are now available through Bullring Graphix produces the
