Custom Matchbox Chevy Camaro


I recently happened to look through the Matchbox pegs at Meijer, and discovered matchbox makes some pretty nice models for cheap. This Moving Parts 2016 Camaro caught my eye; detailed motor, opening hood, great color, good tampos, close to scale, all for $2! I’ll be picking up another one of these, and that is very rare for me to buy 2 of the same model.

It’s appearance isn’t exactly fit to mingle with my GLs though, so I made a few simple changes to add a sportier look. The flat grey of the interior and base really doesn’t look mean, and the wheels? Who though gold was a good idea? So I sprayed the base and interior a nice glossy black, and put some very nice black GL wheels on it, from a Dodge wheel and tire pack (it’s worth buying multiples of that pack just for that set of wheels!), which involved drilling out a bigger hole in the base. Put it back together and it looks 5 times as good! Now I have a slightly under scaled AutoWorld for $2 and some wheels 👍

Thanks for looking, and tell me what you think! Any ideas for improvements and added details?

I love those tires, they really add a nice custom, beefy look.

Thank you Josh, so do I!
