This was a birthday cake for my husband who still talks about his first car, a pre-owned 57 Chevy. Took it to the restaurant for his birthday party and it was a big hit. I learned a lot while making this car. For those like me who aren't professionals....paint the silver parts after they are attached to the car and if you make a mistake, a bit of Vodka on a paint brush takes away any stray paint--like magic! Also, keep a picture handy for reference and make a list of the accessories you want on the car. Check off the list as they get added. If I had done that, the car would have had side mirrors (oooops).
