I dug that rail when ya first posted it B. I love it just as it is, floppy wheel and all. But for all you guys, isnt it hard to tear apart something so old to re-do it? I've got a few from the dark ages, that I know I can do better on, but cant bear to update, nor can I bear to reassemble with all the flaws.

This is the oldest build that I have that was built in the early 70's and I sure wish that I had a few more of my older builds.

I still have my original built MPC 1973 Camaro Z/28 that I built back in 1972. It is the only survivor from that era! The rest ended up in the trash for various reasons!

The oldest kit I built is I think is an old twin engine dragster, followed by my Johan 1969 Roadrunner.
I have whats left of a Barry Setzer Vega , ( found it also mixed in with some model bits and pieces long forgotten about )

Dragster, I don't remember when it was built ( I just found if a few years back with some other model parts thrown in a box .
Roadrunner was built back in the early 80's , I know it's not right, but I just don't have the heart to take it apart to correct it.
The Vega funnycar, I actually bought an unbuilt a few years ago and built it, not knowing I even still had this one . So I'll probably use this one for a different buildup.

This 61 Chevy truck is one of the first kits that I built and that I still have. I almost thru it away because I practically destroyed it back in the day by stripping the paint off with a butter knife. :angry:

Well, I didn't throw it away and here is what it looks like today.

I have a few of the kits that I built back in the early 60's to the late 60's. Also I have three that I built while on Okinawa in the early 70's. :) Dan

hard to believe....this old glue bomb is over forty years old.
after building this kit, I thought all model cars were going to be this detailed.

I still have the pieces of the Chevy Bison snap that my dad got me in ooohhh about 1985 somewhere in my attic. Guess that is what we get when we can't part with plastic.

Considering the uniqueness of that kit I think we all need to see a pic of it,It's hard to make one of those look bad.

I think this is my oldest surviving build, from '92-'94...or so?

The front bumper is still loose, and those Fred Cady "salt spray" decals were state of the art back then, due in part to Rocky Robertson's use of those graphics on his Pro Street V6 Buick LeSabre.

Front and rear suspension is from the Revell '69 Z/28 Camaro kit, the engine from Revell's "Chopped Deuce" kit, wheels and tires from the Monogram '65 Shelby GT350-R kit, and bucket seats and B&M shifter from the Revell Pro Street Lincoln LSC kit (I think). Testors gloss red enamel on the body.
