In Topic: Moebius `65 Plymouth Satellite

17 December 2014 - 03:53 PM

Steve and Jesse:  While I don't know the particulars in this case, I do know that Moebius is generally tooling 3-5 kit versions of each new tool, right out of the box (that is, the tooling for all versions of a specific kit tool - like the '65 Satellite - is done up front, at one time).  


So you can pretty well surmise that there will eventually be other versions of the '65 Satellite, probably spread a year or so apart for each version. 


If the Satellite is done similarly to the way they are approaching the different versions of the '67-'72 Ford Bumpside, the '61 Pontiac Ventura and Catalina, and at least one other kit yet to be mentioned in this level of detail, I suspect that there will be much to love, eventually, about various future versions of this Satellite kit.

I understand that one of the most respected aftermarket resin casters is looking into rebopping the parts that would allow you to make the Little T from the latest T kit release....TIM

In Topic: New Mustang

Can't say much about the new Mustang.....last modern Stang I drove was a 14 V6......nice car BTW.

BUT....Dad has a FLEX with the V6 twin turbo Eco-boost engine and 22 inch wheels all wheel drive. WHAT A HOT ROD!

Dad's 80 and drives it pretty sane....but I drive it a good bit. When I took him to Ohio to see my brother I was getting on the Interstate....real short ramp....busy rush hour....I kicked in the turbo's and we left them all.......Dad said 'so THAT'S what the turbos are for!'. :lol:

Dave's right.  The Flex with the AWD V6 EcoBoost is a total hot rod!  TIM
