So, im a huge Casey Mears fan. They don't make a diecast for the 13 Geico for this year or even last year. SO my grandpa and I decided to build a custom 2012 Geico 1:24th scale to get signed later this summer @ Kentucky or Indy and add to our Mears diecast collection as we have every paint scheme, minus a few that they didn't produce.the first two pics are of the car in progress,
