Remember this Nomad?

The Sam Hollingsworth '57 Chevy Nomad that graced the cover of the May '67 Rod & Custom.

Well it turns out that it is being restored at Richard's Wheel & Chassis in Long Beach to be shown at the Grand National Roadster Show next month. My good friend Jim Aust, owner of So-Cal Speed Shop Los Angeles, posted this thread today over in The Garage at Traditional Speed & Custom. Be sure to click on the link to see what it looks like today and while you're over there check out their forums.

How many of you remember this Revell model kit, and tried to build it into a decent looking model?

I remember it as a very tough kit to build, it had opening everything and the fit was not good but boy did that box art convince us it could look like that!

I'm looking forward to seeing this one at the Grand National Roadster Show, January 29-31, 2010 - will you be there?
