In Topic: It doesn't make any sense

16 June 2015 - 05:14 AM


Because to the majority of people, old carsarrow-10x10.png are unreliable, impossible to fix, dangerous gas hogs. And to many folks in the scrap-metal business, an old machine isn't a worthwhile thing of beauty with a history and character, but just another few easy bucks...that's why.



4 doors are less desirable to most collectors  for some reason, even if that is a ford it's a sad fate to sit and rot.


Ditto to both comments.

Parts are hard to next to impossible to locate, very costly to restore ven if you have the skill and tools to do such.

To folks in the scrap-metal business it`s just another fist full of dollars in parts.

And, unfourtunatly it`s a "four door"; which is not the most sort after restoration project in the eyes of many.

It`s GREAT to see a six cylinder featured for a change.

I`ll be following this post for sure.

Hope you post mode soon.

In Topic: 2'n 1 kits good or bad?

10 June 2015 - 12:02 PM

I would like to see more 2-in-1 60s/70s dealership "tuner" subjects (Motion, Dana,Mr Norms,Tasca,Randall,, et al. ) which could also be built stock.
Furthermore, I wish that Revell,et al. , would offerarrow-10x10.png two transmissions, two differentials, A/C and non A/C arrangementsarrow-10x10.png, etc..

That`s a bitching idea. A series of kits featuring `60-`70 era Muscle Cararrow-10x10.png Dealership (Randall Motors AMC/Dana Chevy /Mr Norms Dodge /Tasca Ford etc)prepped carsarrow-10x10.png matter which could also be built as stock. Revell is kinda doing this with it Baldwin Motion and Don Yenko kits.



I have an AMT-ETRL kit of the `66 Ford Fairlane GT-GTA . It had a singlearrow-10x10.png big block Ford 390 engine, but you had two tranny build options. You could build the car with Fords 4 speed tranny (the linkage as a separate piece from the tranny) and have the Fairlane GT version or  opt for the C-6 automatic and build the GTA version.


An A/C units would be nice as well as bench seat & buckets/console build options.

I fondly remember and loved the earlier 3-1 kits because, they gave the modeler multiple build options.

I certainly would love to to see multiple build option kit resurface. In fact AMT`s `64 Impala was a 2 in 1 "stock" and "low rider" kit and it was reasonably pricedarrow-10x10.png and is still a highly sort after kit.


Ace-Garageguy and Disabledarrow-10x10.png Modeler are  correctarrow-10x10.png the extras parts one decides not to use are an incentive to buy another kit to use them on and that is good for businessarrow-10x10.png specially these days. And, in response to those who say that it will drive up Disablearrow-10x10.png Modeler hit the nail squarely on the head when he  stated "Costs of kits will always go up." Weather they release  a singlearrow-10x10.png model kit or a 2 in 1 or 3 in 1arrow-10x10.png kit.



In today's market hobbits most likely would opt for a Stock/Pro-Touring/Low-Rider 3 in 1arrow-10x10.png optioned kit. Or, a Stock/Drag/Street machine 3 in 1 optioned kit.

Like Ford Guy I love having a choice of race and custom parts like wheels tiresarrow-10x10.png, and headers/manifolds, intake/carbs, shifters, steering wheels, hood scoops etc.

I have purchasedarrow-10x10.png several sets of AMT`s pad printed "Goodyear Polygls GT" F60x15 and have been very please with them.

I have also seen the Goodyear "Blue Streak Dragway Specialarrow-10x10.png" 9.00x15 Drag Slicks at my LHS.


I have not been able to catch up with a set of the  AMT PP013, Muscle Cararrow-10x10.png "Red Line" Tiresarrow-10x10.png, which are due due March 2015, so far but I hope they are a s nice as the Goodyear Ployglas tirearrow-10x10.png set.

Will there be a more "Treaded STREET" tires (not drag strip slicks) coming?

To compliment the Muscle Cararrow-10x10.png "Red Line" tires will there be a Muscle Car "Gold Line" tire set


and a  Muscle Car "Blue Line" tire set?
