No Vid. but Pics of my "D.Gurney Tribute Swap"

Well, after a long time i have something to show:

I decided this year (April) to give my Cat a new look by swapping it into a Race-Looking Car with a historic model.

ok...my car is a 69, and the model is a 67
but i think the swap has still turned out well.

so here is the historic model:

You know for sure Mr.Gurney, as it is one of your succesfull Racing Drivers, ever.
