I just Landed my dream job on Thursday. I am now the Consignment Manager for Streetside Classics in Fort Worth, TX. I basically shop for classic cars for a living, get paid to go to car shows and such. Aside from that I have my own apparel business as well. The website will be launching very soon.

In Topic: What did you get today?

I received an eBay purchase today. It actually turned out to really be to good to be true. The most exceptional eBay experience I have had yet. $33.99 free shipping from Ohio a Fujimi 1/16 scale Ferrari F40 Enthusiast kit. Almost every bag was unopened. The only one that was was the body. It did not include the instructions manual but I have already downloaded the pages from 1999.co.Jp they scan the instructions to their website. Needless to say I got a killer deal on this.

I have my heart set on building one of these GTO kits with a very specific picture in mind. I just don't know wich brand GTO to go with. I will be watching this one.

it also takes exposure to modeling. Unfortunetley due to the reduction of availablity of kits kids these days aren't exposed as much as we used to be. It takes parents getting involved to keep this hobby going. Hence why I wanted to do the "Make and Take" at the car show. Expose a younger genteration to modeling.

Does anyone know if any hobby shops still have model contests in house ? When I was younger most hobby shops I went to had contests every so often. They would also have a "workshop" about once a month. I know that drew in some younger builders at least back in the day.

The local Hobbytown USA has contests about 3 times a year. I am trying to do my part in keeping the hobby alive. I am organizing a 1:1 car show for this weekend on Sat. Hobbytown USA is hosting their contest at the car show as well as I purchased a st of kits for a "Make and Take" for the younger kids. I want this hobby to go on because that is where I got my start in cars. See post http://www.modelcars...showtopic=56698
