I've made it my custom to check the Hot Wheels section wherever I go. Today at Wal-Mart I found at least 10 yellow Falcons (I already have four--two I bought from eBay). So I guess I should have just been patient--which I will do for the blue ones.

Bonus: There's now an AMC Javelin AMX, so I had to get one of those.

It was actually easier to cut the plastic around the body post that to drill out the post. when I cut out the boot I removed the rear body post anyway.
I may try the red XA, but I will have to grind the GT scoops off the hood. That could get kinda messy. I still have a few things to finish on this one first.

I had to strip the paint off of mine so I could add the wheel flairs and putty in the roof spoiler.

I still need to find some jerry cans.

Basically I'm done. I've added just about everything I wanted to.

Nice job guys. I picked up two today from Zellers for a $1.34 each. Anybody have a good tutorials on how to make the car look more like the one in Road Warrior. For example. How to cut space in the back for the tanks. And how to make the tanks along with the charger that sticks out in the front.
Thanks. :)
