I've never bought one as they always looked horrific in the photos I've seen, been tempted as they do have unique subjects, though they seem awfully rough.


In Topic: Crazy drives

27 March 2015 - 03:23 AM

I drove the Amalfi Coast in '03 in a Mercedes A140..was quite the drive...scraped mirrors with a car going in the opposite direction at one point.  At another point, had to stop and wait for a bus to back up through a village to let the traffic through.   Driving in Rome on the same trip was fun also.  Traffic signs and lanes seem to be more of a suggestion than a rule in Italy.  On the Autostrada I stayed in the middle lane, leaving the left lane open for the fast driving Germans and the right lane open for trucks.  

 

On another trip in Italy, I drove an Opel Vectra from Milano up to Lake Como and Lake Maggiore..driving around the lake district was more relaxed than down South...

for what it's worth .... both amazon & netflix are about 8$ a month for their movie services. no commercials, decent variety, and you can watch a whole season of television shows in one afternoon at the bench.

Yep...I use of Amazon, Netfix and Hulu streaming all the time.  If it wasn't for motorsports and the NFL and a few shows I like to see close to the original air time (like Better Call Saul), I'd get rid of cable..


In Topic: 1951 Chevy Business Coupe

Since this about '51 Chevys, why did you post pictures of Oldsmobiles?

What Oldsmobile calls the Club Sedan is referred to as a Fleetline in the Chevy world.  I always thought that was obvious.

 

First picture is of the '51 Chevy Business Coupe/Sport Coupe.  Yes, a Sport Coupe has more options, a Business Coupe is a stripper.

The bottom picture of a '51 Chevy Sedan.  If you can't notice the differences, there's nothing I can do to help you.

 

Somebody produces the sedan in resin.  Not sure who, but my customer has one.

MCW makes a '51 Chevy coupe, Mason City Resin (formerly Resin Realm) makes/made the sedan. I have one.

The roof on the '50 Olds kit is a sedan, the coupe roof and quarter windows are different, so just swapping out the roof will give you a sedan, not a coupe.

The Revell Olds kit is a coupe...the 2dr sedan has a longer roof and longer quarter windows.  What confuses the issues is that Revell included decals for a race car that was actually a sedan.
