    Oh, we do have some pretty good shows down here and there are some great kits and deals to be found. But, as usual, there are no guarantees.
    And the Swap Meet you are referring to is the Kobey's Swap Meet at the Sports Arena. I hardly ever find anything good anymore there.

    Resto Mod - Restored with some upgrades like EFI engine, newer trans and upgraded suspension. 

    Pro Touring - Heavily Moded suspension, usually a new fabbed chassis, borderline race engine, usually with forced induction of some sort  and all the goodies to go with it.

    No doubt, but what if they don't have what you are looking for or there is none of this in your area? One must remember that not everyone is as lucky as some of us when it comes to Model Car events and or venues. 
    Buying something vintage online to get exactly what you need for a bit more than a brand new model is not that bad.

    Oh yeah!

    Exactly, if you figure how much some of the ebay stuff goes for, this is not bad. Plus, for some kits that are out of production or first issues, the prices are only slightly more than a new kit.

    It had some good stuff and some pretty terrible stuff. When I saw what they did to a 1/16th Dragster, that made the cover, I wanted to fly to England and slap the builder!

    You can also snag images off the net and post them for reference. Unless it is something pretty  rare or unusual. 
    Just copy and paste

    Overall, I really like my kit and I will most likely be picking up another one for the stash.
