    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    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

    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.

    model car workshop
    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; 
    I will see it here first.

    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

    model kits needed for a workshop
    I am trying to teach others how to do the hobby. On March 7 2015, I am organizing a model car building workshop at my church open to children of the community from grades K-5. This will be a free event for the children. We will explore the basics of model building with kits that have been pre-painted and some pre-assembly. Students will Assemble interiors, windows, bumpers, grilles, wheels and tires. They will then decorate their car with stickers and brush paints. Chassis, and drivetrain will be pre-assembled for speed. I am looking to provide 30 model kits free of charge to these kids. Will you be interested in donating an inexpensive kit for this cause. if so please pm me for an address Thanks so much copy of flyer Free Model Car Building Workshop.
