Funky, Groovy, Cool and Far Out!  are all the expressions that come to mind.  What an awesome trio.

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

Thanks justmike, even more awesome, when I took this one out of the box about 10 days ago and saw this under the roof section........

Knowing that is this old and still in perfect condition and all those adjectives you gave it, funky, groovy, cool & far out!

I'm still looking for more to build and customise using paint, decals etc. A basic build but so satisfying.

Thinking that on the first and second builds I used home printed woodgrain decal on the sides, but on the latest Red one I carefully used a draughtman's fine pen on the moulded woodgrain to highlight it, and it worked! 

Mind you if you see the box art for the AMT Surf Woody the sides are long rectangles, with enclosed sides, so cutting the sides out as per the Sandpiper, cutting the portholes and using chrome wheel backs and woody decal,to finish the sides, that worked too!
