I do see why 99% of the other folks that work in the hobby have left all forums.......looks like my time is near too.


Something I learned awhile ago, Dave....no matter what you know about what is going on behind the scenes, lots of guys "out there" know more than you.

Thanks for posting the pic, Casey.  


It's always cool to see the box art for the first time....and that the kit is still in one piece.

In Topic: MPC '71 Dodge Demon re release

I thought the Dodge demon would be reissued right after the Dodge Dart Sport that was released last year, at least that was the word on this forum.  


I guess that someone had lied.




Nobody lied, but a whole lotta people assumed

I think the motor wheel spyders were seen for the last time in the cruising series......the new kit due out soon has a set of cragars, and 5 spoke style americans....the ace.... :huh:





Gotta love a kit that still gives you all those options and 2 sets of mags. Some really fine Cragars and I'm pretty sure the other set are supposed to be Astro Supremes for a lowrider version. ;)


Yup...the Spyders are still absent, and the mags are as Steve described.  


The tires are nice.......a stock set of blackwalls (I believe they're recently tooled and have been used in other R2 kits, but can't recall where), a pair of pad-printed Blue Streak slicks, and a set of pad-printed Goodyears as used in the parts pack and '68 Z/28....perfect for an ElCamino-type conversion, right Steve?
