  1. I am just glad to see someone building cars that were not produced. It does look like a 442 to me , It will be an awesome addition to my petty collection . As was the round headlight monte carlo was which I created the Bristol '78 Petty ride. Remember none of the manufacturers are perfect remember the polar lights Petty torino with the crazy front fenders. Kudos to a company who is trying new things.

  8. In the book cars of the king , you can see in the 1981 Buick regal section a photo of an employee unmasking a car , look closely at the rear quarter window, it is canted , not straight up and down , so I can only assume this is a mirada

    New Builds

    Now at over 200 petty kits, I haven't posted the Fusions yet Its been a while since I posted Petty by Shafer Thread https://docs.google.com/document/d/1esQFdOnitqK-oOG8V91otOGOh2naGEH3jMGd_LXIgGs/edit?usp=sharing_________________
  10. I have got to say a big TY to those of you on the forum. I should have enough model kits. Still in need of paints , brushes ect. Again Thanks
  11. Don't take this wrong.I can see what you mean , however : I can assure you that I am not trying to do things for hand outs. I am a school teacher who puts some of his own money , time , and abilities into this project. I do this so children can find better choices for hobbies that will keep them safe and active. It also benefits my church in that it allows us to do more things for youth since our congregation is an older one. I am proud that over 45 models have been donated, with a big chunk coming directly from this forum.
  12. I have been offline for a while and don't really get the time to post anymore. My career keeps me from it. That has not stopped my passion for model car kits. My Petty collection is topping 200 now. Last year I posted a model car workshop event that I was putting together for small children grades k-6. It was so successful that I am doing it again. Below is a copy of the flyer for the event. One of the reasons to its success was the generous donations of unused unwanted kits members of this forum sent me. I do not have sponsors for this event. I pay for the kits and supplies on my own. That can be hard to do on a teacher's salary. All kits are supplied to the kids for free. If you would like to donate a unused Snap together kit , decals , or paints please shoot me an email; clyde.shaferii@gmail.com I will see it here first. link to the flyer https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dHMsnKbRP8I0Q8s3-0X45wNi-7Qh8yz0b41Nmxi3UrI/edit?usp=sharing The Wilson Times news paper will be doing a story on this event in April I will send a link Thanks so much, Clyde Shafer
  13. Thanks for all of the donations , I think I am good to go, With the donations from here , several model supply groups and the church we have over 50 models to work with. Again Thanks
