Genesis of Pro-Touring

12 May 2010 - 04:45 AM

Cleaning out a shed this past weekend for a garage sale and I found a box full of old mopar magazine I had forgot was in there. I started looking through them during my spare time. I found this article from about 1995. I think it shows where Pro-touring got its start. I don't believe that this was the first official Pro-touring machine, but it was one of the 'switch over' cars. The stance is not there, but the intent is. I thought is was kind of neat and thought I would share. I have larger high res scans if anybody wants them.

Hey Marc, got any of those MPC 'Cudas left?

As I find more fun stuff I will post it. The magazines are mainly High Performance Mopar and Mopar Muscle. I also have a bunch of old Custom Rodder magazines I will most likely scan. I do have the issue with the Mooneyes Toyopet Crown that caused so much controversy in the custom rod world when unvieled. I will see if I can find the article and scan that one if anyone is interested. If anybody needs some Mopar reference, let me know and I will see if I have some and scan them in.

looking for Ferrari 512 help

26 March 2010 - 04:58 PM

Okay, I am working on the testors boxing of the Ferrari 512s. After a few minor missteps... thanks Cal, I am starting the engine painting. The directions call for the valve covers to be black. Most of the pictures I have seen show them gold. I am leaning towards gold. Are there any good, complete reference guides on the internet? I have used google, but after hours of looking at different shots I cannot find a definite, reliable source.


Flat hood for AMT 71 Charger

02 March 2010 - 04:53 PM

Hey all, I want to build a replica of the 'Burn Notice' 73/74 Charger. I have the AMT 71 Charger, which will be a great starting point, but it has the louvered hood. I need a flat hood and a 440 6 scoop. Somewhere, I have the Monogram 69 440 Bee, but it is 1/24 not 1/25 of the AMT kit. Is there a readily available 73/74 Charger or does someone in the aftermarket make a flat hood. I was planning on filling in the side strakes to make the body, but the hood has me stumped. Thanks guys
