Here's a few reasons I need to hold off on tires for a while:

'73 Grand Am/GTO, Amphicar, Mormon Meteor III & a few others which can be seen at my fotki site.

Thanks Frank.

As you know, it's fast & accurate. It still requires a lot of work smoothing out the ridges but I like it. Now I need to get a bunch of photoetch made to go with them.

Al, Al, Al.........you got me drooling over that Grand Am and that Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 7!! I've been a big fan of the Grand Am ever since they were first intro'd in '72, and was very disappointed when Pontiac revived that name on a FWD econobox years ago. :(

Let me know when they're available...............I'm taking a 10 day trip out of town and will need some time to get the model funds built back up! :D

The Grand Am/GTO will be ready in December. I need to get the interior finished up. You'll need to supply a chassis & drivetrain from a GM A-body kit; ie Cutlass, Chevelle, Monte Carlo. When I figure out which one is best I'll include the info with the kit.

Thanks for asking! :)

Thanks Bill.........I'll let you know when they are ready. I'm looking forward to the BAT car too.....I think they are really cool! After the Borgward I have a Facel Vega & a 1940 Sharknose Graham coming out. Here's the BAT 7 & the Mormon Meteor I:

Now, how about making those helmet fenders separate from the fairings, then a version of this bodywork as the car appeared on Bonneville Salt Flats in the late summer of 1935? Also, will you be making the two-stage supercharger, along with the "ram's horn" intake manifold which is dramatically different from the standard SJ intake as produced in the Monogram kit?

I assume this is to be a transkit for the Monogram Duesenberg SJ's?

Hi Art,
Both the Mormon Meteor I & III will be 1/24th to use with the Monogram kit. And I will make the engine parts for MM I & attempt to make the complete V-24 Curtis for the MM III.

A Facel Vega? Awesome. The fastest car of its time! French design, Hemi powered - no way to lose. Unless you drive it into a tree.

Curbside? Chassis? Tell us more...

Well. Alan,
Be aware that the Curtiss Conqueror aircraft engine was a V12, NOT a V24! I helped my uncle deliver a Conqueror crate motor to Purdue University's Aviation Technology school back in the early 1970's when my Uncle Charlie located it in Minnesota--for the restoration of the Curtiss P26 Biplane fighter they restored for the USAF Museum at Wright Patterson AFB in Fairborn, OH. BTW, that engine was installed in the Duesenberg chassis for the so-called Mormon Meteor II.
