Which model, if any, was used as a base?
If i'm correct Model car magazine had a feature of this build a while back. Let me read up on it and find out what base he used to start his build. I'm thinking he used a 74 or 76 T-bird

I'll take pics of the sign next to some of my cars later, but it's really cool having it lit up with my models next to it!

Anyone know how many of those signs exist in Las Vegas?
I'm talking about the real deal, no stuff "Welcome" signs.

There are three actual signs now, two of them are replicas of the original. One is further down Boulder Hwy, and the other two are on Las Vegas Blvd, with the original sign actually being located in Paradise, NV, 4 miles south of the city limits proper. The last replica is further north in the city limits itself on the same highway and reads "Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas".
And one more, located on Las Vegas Blvd just north of Lake Mead is the sign that reads "Welcome to Fabulous North Las Vegas"
Well done Allen.

That Lincoln. Yeah, baby! I think I have an old Low Rider magazine from the 1990's that has the 1:1 car in it. OF COURSE I didn't buy it for the pics of the girls.
