I'm waiting for either Revell or one of the resin guys to do convertibles, Holidays and fastbacks.

I could really hold my breath and hope someone will do an 88 wagon, and really, really wait for a 6-cylinder engine to build a 76.

'50 Olds Business Coupe! Couple of friends had those when I was in HS. V8 and stick shift--you didn't want to tangle with them at the stoplight drags in say, 1960!

This was a kit idea I recommended to AMT way back in 1975 when I was doing contract work for them. I never, ever thought I would see this one in the shelves. It was also on my list of recommendations for Revell that was submitted five years ago now. So like the rest of us, I am overjoyed with this new kit....TB

I know! I suggested that very subject at more than one Johnny Lightning Product Committee meeting, got shot down every time, both in 1/64 and 1/24 scales. Also put it on a hot list I was asked to write up for another plastic model company--got shot down there too.

I was at the 2012 IPMS convention this week and had the pleasure of talking with Ed Sexton from Revell. Real nice guy. I asked when all the new kits would be out. He said the Olds would be out Oct, the 62 Vette &57 Fairlane would both be out by Nov and Dec. If I remember correctly quite possibly the Gearz street rod and one of the new Foose cars. I asked if Revell would ever do a new tooling of the 63 Splitwindow Corvette, he said he gets asked that alot but new tooling is expensive. I keep my fingers crossed maybe they may listen to us. I also asked if Revell kits will ever be sold at Walmart again, he said they were working on in. They are trying to be available to a larger market of people, particularly younger people to try and bring them into the hobby.

When I lived in San Diego in the 70s I built a '49 Olds coupe with a bored 394 Olds engine and a '54 Olds Hydro that I put a B&M shift kit in to. It had a Pontiac rear (the Ford 9 inch on the 60s and 70s) with 54 inch long ladder bars (all built by me in a rented one car garage). It was the most fun 1:1 car I ever built! I will replicate that car from my past in plastic. I did it with one of the old Ertl diecast '50 Olds coupes many years ago. I will likley get 4-5 of these to build some variants.

Many years ago at the IPMS Nationals, Accurate Miniatures was asking for suggestions for new models. They had just started doing cars (the Corvett Grand Sport and McLaren). I put down the '49/50 Olds coupe,'53 Hudson, and '55 Chrysler 300. When asked why those subjects, I indicated they were all pioneers in NASCAR and would be great sellers for that reason alone.The owner said they would never see the light of day. I guess he was wrong?
