I have built 3 of Jeff's creations, and they are awesome quality! I loved the Ranchero

That is a really cool piece, Jeff, and totally unexpected!! One could do all kinds of things with that one - the aforementioned morgue wagon, fire chief or support vehicle, sergeant's wagon or just get some woodgrain decals and do mom and dad's ride - SWEEEEET!!!

Jeff's 72 Wagon is one of the best things to happen to this hobby anytime recently.

When are these available?

A word to those who have never bought from Motor City before, the bumpers are so clean they barely need any prep for chrome. The last two I got I just wet sanded with 1500 grit and westleys and shipped them to Bob. They came back looking better than most kit chrome. Also, looking at your photo you have a very accurate body on that.

I can't wait to get my hands on a couple of those wagons!

Lookslike you did a great job on it. I love the idea of a Quicy ME wagon, I've been going through my Emergency! DVDs taking screen shots of some of the ambulances for future builds, Quincy's wagon would fit right in for those patients Johnny and Roy couldn't help. :D

FYI: Modelhaus has the big flat cakepan center caps like so many of those mainstreamers had and they would look so good on that, especially in Brown metallic.

I have seen the wagon in person. Like all of Jeff's work, it is a nice smooth, solid casting.

NICE!! I'll have to purchase one of those.

One of my earliest car memorys is our 75 Torino wagon...metallic orange with brown vinyl interior. I've gotta build one of them someday...Yours will do for now!

Ayatollah, your Torino is the only one I've seen finished. I've seen it before but it sure is nice! :) I just got my bumpers back from Chrome Tech Bob in late November. Mine is going to powder blue (basic Testors 1208) to match one I've seen here several times locally.

You take a kit from Jeff, have Bob do the chrome..... it's going to turn out much better than any styrene kit out there. And thanks for the nice words. The wagon is stunning, absolutely a birdie as far as us mainstreamers are concerned. Or...... a Q-code 4 speed wagon!

Juha Airo did at least two of those Rancheros, one was red and I forget the other.....maybe yellow.

Jeff, was it you that just released a Hornet S/C 360? Or mastered it, don't remember which....

It looks very very good for our hobby, never been better!

Thanks again to all of our heroes, Jeff B, Model King Dave, Steve Kohler, Jack at Roundup, Parsons, about 70+ resin casters and photoetch czars.....You guys and gals (supportive spouses included) have brought us a much stronger and brighter hobby!
