Awesome looking car! It gets me excited to start on mine. (When I have the $.) Question: How did you lay out the stripe? Is it patterned after the TV car, movie car or the Limited Edition stripe? By the way I have a Lim. Edition that I will probably start on next year.

I got one of the detective brent stripe kits.His template in the kit is rough to say the least.My painter laid out the stripe while I was there to get it the way I wanted it.Its closer to a movie stripe with more curve at the rear and the roof stripe is wider,13.5 inches.It the correct length at the front and just a sliver of red over the front wheels.I like it a lot this way.Whats the story with yours?Post some pics and info about it and what kina shape its in.Do you know what your car number is of the 1000?If you don't,as long as your car still has the original hood,it will be marked in a black paint stick under your hood liner.Let me know,mine is #770.

Mine is #840. There is also a 2B next to the 840, which I assume refers to the 2B red paint. It is in pretty rough shape and hasn't been driven since 1990. Money is the main issue right now, but I'd like to start some work on it this winter. It will need a complete restoration.
