Very nice!  Great color too.  I love those old Fords with the big round tail lights.  Excellent job!

Very nice build.  I also like the simple builds now and then so I can finish one now and then being I dont get the time to build I used to have when I was younger and had kids living at home to help with the chores!

My friends, once again I thank you all for the commnts. You all surprised me again, as I wasn't expecting much, after all this is a curbside model, and I couldn't find many of them built to take some ideas from, so I concluded it would be a low interest model.

Thanks again!!

Beautiful build Tulio.  Like you, I love the old Fords.  My first car was a '68 Galaxie convertible.   Current old Ford is a '66 T-Bird.

Ahh....someone else who sees the difference in digital and color; I do, espcially with a lot of reds/pinks/oranges and occasionally blues. One of the many, many reasons I still shoot 99% of my pictures on film. It works.

 

I am curious, Tulio, how do you find your older-model car runs on the sugar-based gasoline they're using in Brazil? Did you have to modify it in any manner?

 

As to the model...another great stunner. Beautiful, well-built car and a gorgeous color choice.

Yes, there is a huge diference between the digital, and film cameras, and I think film cameras are far superior, but, they are not so practical as the digital.

Our gasoline here has 25% in volume of alcohol. The modifications needed are just bigger jets on the carburetor, and adjusting the ignition timing. On the maintenance side, you just have to use the car at least once a week so gas won't evaporate on the carb. That's because the gasoline with alcohol creates a gely residue that clogs the carburetor up. To avoid that, you have to drive the car enough to keep the carb full, or to dry it in case of stooring the car.
