You can buy a single-hulled, 30 year old tanker for around $5 million, empty (still operable, but on the way to the scrapyard). Say it's a smallish tanker, only a million barrels or so. Buy oil today at less than $50 / barrel and hold it til it's back up to $100. I could live on the profit for a while, quite nicely.

Be prepared to spend money on whatever fees are necessary to keep that ship moored or tied up to a dock; then, add costs for the maintenance that it will require and 24/7/365 security.

Tom, I decided to use the Pentastar plate on an original MPC Duster pro-stock kit that I got from Jerry many years ago in a swap.  That will be built up into a super gas or bracket-type drag car; something that would have run against Jerry's "Vanilla Shake" Camaro.  I found another, aftermarket plate to use on the 'runner.  More pictures will follow as it progresses.

As a rule, I don't like Camaros.  BUT- this one is an exception.  Looks really good to me and I'm digging the color.  I have one suggestion- if you haven't given the struts/coilovers a black wash- it's hard to tell from the pictures- that would be a good thing, as it would add some dimension to the part; make it look like it's actually multiple pieces.

Thanks, Joe.  I have always used flock in the past, but this first use of embossing powder has made me a convert,  You should give it a try; it's easy.

My AMT kit has languished in the box for a while and likely will for a while more, but it will, eventually, be built,, painted one of the four Taimya silvers, box stock.  While I probably won't get one, I do very much appreciate the Tamiya kit as the car is one of my favorite classic sports cars- the other being a Jag E-type.  Now, if Tamiya would do one of them... :)
