only cost $10 cdn but it was American Graffitti Chevy 150 (aka Bel-Air) 1955 all Black die cast body and frame

Of the remaining plastic components and screws
washers were missing, other parts were extra and not required, but the most frustrating of all was the wheels.

The spindles did not fit the wheels, so I drilled out the wheels to accept the spindle, first bit bigger than the existing wheel hole, and now the hole is too big
so I threw a whole pile of model glue in to hold the wheels to the spindles, looked good, transported it to my car model shelf and it did a gymnastics split

I feel my only recourse is to fire up my barbeque flame ignitor stick, batante or whatever you call it, and melt the damn wheels and spindle together

What do you think?

I don't think a shotgun is the answer... it looks like it's time for explosives!!!
