Hi everybody!

I guess I'm the latest cross-over from elsewhere online. Glad to see familiar names here, and ones I haven't seen in a while! (Bob Downie, Bill Geary, etc.)

I'll post builds on the rare occasion that I finish one (!), and help out with info & parts when I can.

I'm Matt, and I'm a hot rod-aholic.

It's really nice here, Matt. No trolls, no one constantly argueing, all the posts are actually about the MODEL CAR HOBBY (!) and, so far, there are not 38 people saying prayers for someone's grandmother,s neighbor's nephew who is having a bunyunectomy tomorrow. :wink:
Welcome aboard.

When I showed up, I was happy to see that Bob Downie and Bill Geary are still at it, I missed seeing their work on the "other" board. This place has great potential, welcome aboard! Love that hotrod, you're gonna fit right in with this crowd!

Thanks everyone!

BigTruck - the front wheels & tires are from the Modelhaus (part #T-110 tires). The rear wheels are optional parts out of the Beatnik Bandit, in slicks from the Miss Deal AWB Studebaker.

The finned Buick drums are from an AMT '65 Riviera, and the backing plates, dropped axle, and split wishbones are from a 1/24 Monogram '32 Roadster. I sent all the front end parts out to be chromed.

Kinda nice to see "On Topic" post for a change! I was pleasantly surprised to see some names here that quietly dissappeared elsewhere. Granted, there still some great people "over there" that I enjoy trading post with... I'll have to nudge them to this board.

I'm Steve... and I'm like the poster boy for the Special Olympics of Model Building! :?

Hey, guys! I know that we have hit the magic 300 mark.
Aaaannnnnd ... a lot of you are probably migrants from HHB.
However,...
..... and I'll probably get in trouble for saying this, but lets be ... ah... exclusive, about who we "nudge" over to MCM forums. OK?

We want to keep the riff-raff out, if you know what I mean... nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more.

(What's that mother?.. OK, I'll be right there...)
