  1. oh my! this is awesome, very useful - goes from 1902 to 2007 - thanks for posting
  2. Lots of great information from Force, Farmboy, and Comp 1839. Hakan, Mike, and Dave posted some great information and photos here on the forum -
  3. Love it. Thank you for posting the great photos. Excellent job chronicling one of America's great car museums. Lots to go thru, but well worth the look. I was checking out museums around Michigan a few years ago and found this one with not much time left on my journey. Gave it few hours and Wow! They had a poster that showed they have cruise-ins and cars shows on the lawn in the summer. I'm going back. But till then, I have something to look at.
  4. Looks very good - I was hoping you would build this one!
  5. same around here - most of the muscle cars were bought new by guys on an after-school grocery store, gas station or parts store paycheck. Saving a few bucks with the standard hubcaps was important. Some of the dealers brought the cars in with the tire upgrade so the buyer could take the car straight to TDI to put on a set of Americans or Cragars. Full wheel covers were kind of rare and went to older buyers with more real-world financial obligations. Preferences change - When these cars are restored 50 years later, they get the original factory steel wheels and hub caps.
  6. New! wish I had a place in the country and these guys were my neighbor.
  7. not to spill the beans --- High and Mighty and the Ram Rods will show up in later years. This was the first car of a group of Chrysler engineers that became the Ramchargers.
  8. All cool posts, thank you for posting and bringing them to light. This car was restored about three years ago. You'd suspect some lead in an old custom, but the original metalwork was so good that very little was used.
  9. Fireball Modelworks (fireballmodels.info) - has some nice Minilite wheels with Goodyear tires available in both 1/25 and 1/24th scale FMR-074-24 and FMR-074-25
  10. Brake chamber size is related to brake power - the more weight, the larger the chamber More truck stuff here with a bit on both wedge and S-cam air brake systems - unfortunately, some of the pictures are gone.
  11. Looking for stock AMT 1964 or 1965 Thunderbird interior or parts car. Is there anything out there?
  12. maybe this? 4060 - .060" OPAQUE WHITE POLYSTYRENE V GROOVE SIDING - Evergreen Scale Models
  13. Bob, Are you thinking a "working" vocational car hauler like this? With or without a car over the cab? Or a single car, more recreational flat bed or ramp truck type hauler?
  14. Slixx Decals has the Red Allert Chevelle decals, including the license plate, on their #38 and #41 mini gasser sheets - Slixx Decals Inc. They are good people
  15. One of my favorite authors - always the right amount of information and easy to read. Books, Magazines. I had a chance talk to him once at an NNL West - probably about 1989. If I remember correctly; he had some models on the tables. Good guy, easy to talk with. I had planned to go the drags at Riverdale. But it had been a tough week and no energy. If I knew that Pat Ganahl was going to be there - a rare opportunity so I would have made the effort. Now, I'm not sure that I would have enjoyed the trip... RIP Too Tall, you will be missed.
  16. Good stuff Bernard, looking forward to seeing it - thank you
  17. not a fan of black wheels - but the next rig will probably get them now that we are having to deal with mag chloride as a road deicer. When the clear coat on the wheels gets a rock chip, the mag chloride turns the spot black.
  18. Verry nicely done - classy good looks
  19. more info here - IT’S BACK! FOR REAL!! – Pat Ganahl's Rod and Custom
  20. Randy at Model Builders Warehouse is a good guy to work with. Send him an email and he can let you know when he has them in stock or set you up with a pre-order.
  21. Thers are a lot of great (car) museums big or small worth a stop and look in that area.
  22. The Portland Blues Festival is this weekend all the way thru to the fireworks on the fourth. It is being broadcast live on KBOO 90.7 FM and on the internet at Listen Now | KBOO
  23. Wow! amazing work and no easy task. Doubly difficult because the bottom side has to be just as good as the top with no filler.
