While the specs of the real car are certainly impressive, and the model kit does look very detailed, all I see is a Ferrari doing a "duck face" picture.

+1  Haven't cared for a Ferrari Halo car since the F-40.  I also like rotary phones, newspapers, analog cell phones with a little antenna you pull up.  :D

As happens with 1/3 to 1/2 of my issues the front cover looks like an angry poodle had at it.  Not torn enough to rip the address away but still mangled.  Its funny that: I still get 4 or 5 magazines over the course of a month and Model Cars is the only one that this happens to.  :huh:

I got this back in April.  Told the insurance that I would put, maybe, 5K miles on it.  Just clicked over 16K on Friday.  Ooops.  I had wanted a Grabber Blue Mustang since I was 17 and I saw my first 1970 Boss 302.  Had to go through a lot of minivans to get here.

Kinda difficult not to find excuses, huh, Steve?


"We need milk? I'll get it. They got a nice dairy store in Fresno."  B)

Truthfully its either ice cream or an In-N-Out Burger.  Closest one is 62.6 miles one way but...nothing else will do when you want one.  Starting to collect what I need for the build.  I have a Grabber Blue spray bomb and 2010 Mustang kit for odds n ends, and am starting to look for a suitable 18" polished aluminum wheels in 1/25.  Not hung up on P Zero tires, whatever looks good.

Heh Steve....congrats on joining the club with your '13 GT....in Grabber Blue, no less!  If I still lived out there, I'd be jamming Sunday morning on that road from Skyline Boulevard to Half Moon Bay, or 84 from Alice's Restaurant to the coast.  Mine's a convert, so the top would be down....and yes, the bikes would be buzzing around me but I wouldn't care....California Dreaming, 30 years after the last time I guess!   TIM 

The bikes are still out there and still crashing at a their usual remarkable rate.  I told the insurance company that it was a secondary car and I'd probably only put 5K miles on it a year.  April to now: 13.8K.  Ooops :rolleyes:
