In Topic: 1997 Ford Crown Victoria- Village of Ashley Police

OK, you've talked me into it. It has the two major discrepancies of the Lindbergh kit covered - the "cut lines" of the grill header panel, and the strip parallel to the rear window.

 

Nice looking build.

He probably did, and it passed. It is spelled correctly.


In Topic: What was your 1st 1 to car

1973 Ford Capri bought used in 1978. It had the 88 raging horsepower 2 litre motor, and a 4 speed. Great little car - had a blast in it. There was a Datsun 510 driver or two in San Diego that seemed pretty impressed with it. Traded it in on a used 1979 Mustang Ghia 5.0 in 1981.


In Topic: Moebius 71 Ranger Pickup

Both of the Ford Pickups are finished - and in production they are scheduled to ship from the factory on 4/28 - so they ought to show up in stores late May - early June.

Great news. How's that new 1/72 "Cold War" submarine coming along?  I've heard rumors on a ship building forum. I can only hope it's a 637 long hull, though a short would do in a pinch. I'm looking forward to finally building a Moebius model, either the Ford pickups or a Sturgeon.


In Topic: What did you see on the road today?

I knew they all had vinyl tops; I didn't know they were all black. Maybe there was a mod top or two out there...

 

I remember the first Superbird I saw, parallel parked (!) in the Highlands in Louisville, KY in the early 70's. The one thing that caught my eye was the spoiler with the Road Runner logo.
