In Topic: "I thought that I would let you paint them and put them together for me..."

I used to work at a Hobby Shop part time and had several people ask me if I wanted to build a model for them. Most thought buying the model and giving me $10 would be fair. I told them that one of my customers (Mike Kollver) built for other people and that he was a master builder. When they asked what he charged I said "$125 plus expenses."  I never had anyone pass out but there was a lot of grumbling. This is the definition of clueless.

I just pinched the rails on a Ron Cash Deuce chassis for Chuck's '27 T roadster with the louvered trunk. I have several of his bodies and plan on buying more. I agree that he should mention Altered States on his E bay profile.

I still have my hat from the very first tour. They stopped in Mount Clemens MI., and I lived in Clawson. If you get a chance check it out.

The '66 Rivi has a nailhead. The '69 has a second generation Buick V-8 and it's not bad except for the hole in the block
