    When I was in high school in 1980's, I was a member of the KEY (Kiwanis Educated Youth) club. We helped the local retirement home set up a white elephant sale and I purchased this kit for a dollar. It had never been built and still was mostly attached to the sprues. I built it and it worked as advertised. Unfortunately, it like almost all the models of my youth, failed to make all the moves I made over the years. Those kits built or unbuilt go for a pretty penny now.

    What patina, that candy green paint on white plastic is fantastic. Amazing how you were able to make that kit look so aged.

    I thought I give an update with an official count of what I haven't built with some pictures. I unboxed all my stash from storage and did an inventory. There are 241 unbuilt kits. 29 kits are started in one form or another. I will be putting many up for sale on eBay soon like I did last year. Here are some pictures three are not included two are the 1/8 scale Big T and Big Duece and an old Monogram Goin' Buggy dual body VW. The box of Bill Elliott kits are never to be sold either.

    If it's like most hybrid car boats or car planes, it's probably good at neither.

    Wow! NASCAR truck arm suspension and leaf springs. No wheel hop there. I used that same pro shop kit to build a Joe Weatherly stock car. Great looking gasser.

    I used to live right up the road from Wilson, NC. There was a dirt track at the fairgrounds and we would get real barbecue from Parker's. Seems a shame those Chevys have gone to rot like that. I'm sure someone kept telling prospective buyers they were not for sale because they were going to be restored one day.

    I sold about a hundred last year on eBay. I have a couple hundred built. I've lost, destroyed or gave away probably 200 more over the last 45 years. Finally, I have several hundred unbuilt, that need to be sorted for sale on eBay and figure out what I'll keep to build.

    Looks really good. Just an observation if you can fix it. The tail light lens are reversed.
  10. THarrison351 added a post in a topic I kinda miss that classic look.   

    I think the cars of the last few years gauges were all electric to start with, because sometimes their gauges would fail during the race and the needles would stay at 0.

    Looks great, can't hardly wait. I wonder if the real one ever looked that good.

    You must be very young, or plan to live a long time.
  13. THarrison351 added a post in a topic Least favorite?   

    1988-1993 Pontiac (Daewoo) Le Mans. What a disgrace to a classic name.

    Only what's on the Internet, forget subscription TV prices. I'm strictly broadcast and Internet.
  15. THarrison351 added a post in a topic Why do we like the makes we do ?   

    I grew up liking cars. My maternal Granddaddy was a Mopar man, my paternal Granddaddy was a Ford man. Dad drove whatever was cheap and worked and we had a lot of air cooled VWs. In his later years he started buying Hyundais. I decided to take after my Dad's Dad and like Fords. No special reason, it just seemed less people around me liked them so I picked them. I'm older now, I inherited the last Hyundai my Dad bought before he died 8 years ago( now a 10 year old Azera) and I bought my wife a Tuscon two years ago. I guess I'll just keep on sticking to the less than most normal car maker.
