Hi all, the name's Tony, and just wanted to post up a quick introduction. Some of you will probably know me from SAE and ORM. I've been looking around here for a little while, and finally decided to join. I'm really impressed with all of the talented and knowledgeable folks here. I'm just your average builder, doing the best I can. Like many of you, I started building as a kid, and still do after all these years (though I did get out of the hobby during most of my 20's). Musclecars are my main focus, but also like building 4x4's, quartermilers, street rods/machines, and the occasional warbird. I'm currently working on a AMT '66 Ford Fairlane 427, turning it into a reasonably accurate vintage SS/B drag car. Pics will be coming when she's finished, as well as some photos of several of my past builds for you guys to laugh at! LOL

Thanks for the welcome guys. Craig, that Mustang is the one and only Tasca Super Boss built by Bob Tasca. He stuffed it with a all-aluminum Can-Am 494. From what I've read, it ran 11's in the quarter on street tires and mufflers intact. :o Someday down the line I'd love to take a stab at building it in styrene. I'm a big pony car fan as well. Being partial to Fords, Mustangs are my favorite though.

Tony!

Glad to see you here!

We recruited Tony to ORM after seeing his super-nice Scout build on the SA forum a few years ago...don't let him kid ya, he builds some great stuff (although not enough 4x4s ;) LOL)

Welcome indeed sir. You'll find it hospitable and the dearth of knowledge in these here parts is downright scary.



Hope to see a few builds soon.



I know i won't laugh. Look at some of mine for a real hoot.



Bob

Thanks again guys for the welcome. I'll get a couple builds posted today. You're right Jeff, I am long overdue for another 4x4 project....I've almost forgotten what a transfer case is! :lol:

Welcome, Tony. I never go to SA because there's nothing there. THIS is the place to be.
