I thought I really really wanted this kit.  But i saw one built and it really didn't do much for me.   Now put a STOCK body and interior in the box...

I've looked at my Eldorod kit and I'm likin' it. I've already started hunting down parts to make a few changes to this kit and I bought the paint a few weeks ago also.

The kit has a Cadzila feel to it.

A little bit yes, it does have the Cadzilla feel to it.

The Foose Caddy and ZZ Top's Cadzilla both came from the shop of the late Boyd Coddington.  The Foose Caddy or Eldorod as it was originally called was designed by Chip when he worked for Boyd prior to Boyd's filing for bankruptcy back in the late '90's.  The Eldorod followed Boyd's smooth design philosophy that was also used on Cadzilla.

Hmmm;

 I always liked Boyd Coddington's designs and some of Chip Foose's too .This one rattles me though. Like many cars of the year it had a somewhat Bulbous trunk lid .

  To Me that and a Chopped top create a small glitch in the smoothness of the design . I think a sectioned trunk lid would fix that somewhat .

 Besides how many old Caddy models do we have to work with ? For once too , a Foose design has good looking wheels . O.C.G.

Mine is open too.  The body is de-seamed and in primer.  I'm have some gorgeous dark blue paint for it but I'm going for another colour on the top/interior; not sure what yet. (any thoughts?)  Kit is quite nice; I LOVE the prepainted red stripes on the wheels plus plastic whitewalls.  Clearly another winner from Revell.
