anyone in the Jacksonville area know a guy named Dave Shepherd?  he's a friend of mine from Indy that moved to FL several years ago.  when he was here he had a TON of unbuild models, mostly NASCAR and Indy Cars.  haven't talked to him for a while.  last I heard he and a friend were working on a 1:1 scale original Ramcharger drag car.  a man of many talents.....

I'm in Lakeland in the middle of the state. No hurricane worries here... :P It's also the Spring Training home of the 2012 World Series Champion Detroit Tigers. It's nice being 5 minutes from the ball park.


do you care to update your location?  did you move to San Francisco...Home of the 2012 World Series Champions?  LOL

very nice....I too prefer the 1/25th JoHans over the Monograms. 


actually I have a three JoHan Superbirds. two of them are WIPs and the other was one that I built for the Service Manager I worked with back in the early 80's.  he had a 440+6 4sp Hemi Orange 'bird that was pretty wicked.  made the model for him but he left the dealership before I got it done.  after 30 years, its in rough shape, but hope to restore it someday.  


one of the WIPs is a white one that was started to be a model of the Superbird I passed up in 1974.  had a chance to buy it but decided as a 19 year old kid, couldn't afford the gas, let alone the insurance.  the other WIP is a model of Dan Gurney's #42 Superbird he drove at Riverside. 


also a WIP is a green Daytona.  one of these days........ 

In Topic: DIY 62 Bonneville? Actually a '60.....

02 August 2012 - 11:30 PM

The first, and favorite, car my Dad ever owned was a 62 Bonneville convertible. I want to build one for him. However, I am finding that 62 Bonneville convertible models are very rare and if I do happen to find one, rather expensive. So my questions to you all.... the masters.

If I decide to go another route, is there a suitable kit than can be modified to become a 62 Bonneville? A 60 or 61 Bonneville? Or even a Catalina? Or even a Chevy or any other GM of the same year? I'm up for some suggestions. No matter how outlandish they might seem.


you might try R&R.....they have listed a 62 Bonne hardtop, which could be easily converted. $53.00 not cheap but a lot less than the actual kit.
