For all you Vett lovers here`s a possible build project.
This thing is insane! According to an article I read this `63 Corvette puts out 2,400 H.P., turns 0-60 in 1 sec. and runs the 1/4 Mile in under 7 seconds....and is 100% street legal!!! It should also be noted that this is all accomplished on street legal tires and pump gas! At one point it was billed as the fastest `63 Vette in the world.
No doubt this is bad a** car...but fastest `63 Vette in the world? I'm not so sure. However, Rod Saboury's '63 Vette was recognized as the fastest "street legal" `63 Vette in the WORLD for a good while, Red Victor 3, a car from the UK has since taken that from him, but Rod's Vette should still be #1 in the U.S.A.. It was up for sale a few months ago, not sure if it is still for sale or if it sold.
I picked up this old Volkswagen bus kit by Revell at a garage sale. Even though the first page of the instructions are missing and the box shows some wear and water staining all the parts including the glass appear to be there. I`m trying to identify what year this kit represents. One friend told me the kit was a `63 and another said it was a`67. I`m hoping someone out there can enlighten me.
Today I was on the AMT site and read that they intend to release a newly tooled `68 Plymouth Road Runner sometime in September 2013. The new Roadrunner will have a highly detailed chassis and the interior builds up platform style which will make detailing and painting the interior a whole lot easier. There will be two build versions, one will be a stock version and the other will be a street machine version. I was wondering if anyone can shed additional light on new AMT release i.e. the online picture shows the car with a vinyl roof, will that be molded in, what is the engine displacement (please let it be something other than a 426 Hemi), will it be bucket or bench seats ( please let them be bench) etc.
