    Yea, I just built the front wheel. And I'm having troubles getting the tire to set well on the wheel. The black plastic pieces within the rims seem to be the problem.

    Very cool! It looks great.

    Turning west and following I-80 to the coast is the way to go. Then take the Pacific Coast Highway to LA. Like others, I'd be a little worried driving that old a truck without a good thorough going over. I-80 does take you over Donner's Pass. So you will be doing a little climbing. Though I did it in a '71 Buick Riviera a few years ago with no problems.
    It could be a great trip. Or a nightmare, like the time I tried driving a '67 Riviera from a New Jersey suburb of Philadelphia, PA back to the Twin Cities. A very easy run with a good car. And seller had assured us the car ready to go. The car didn't make it the less then 5 miles into Philadelphia with out breaking down. Had to have it towed back to the seller. Then I had to wait all the next day while they "fixed the problem." Only to break down in Warren, Ohio for a couple of days before getting home.
    Still if the truck checks out, I'd try it. It should be a lot of fun.

    You got it. They block my view of the near by toxic waste dump.

    Yea, a 4 cents difference doesn't make sense to me either. Digital = $39.95. Print and digital = $39.99. But, guess which one I went for?

    "awfull 914 kit"? I liked the one I build 2-3 years ago. A little fiddly, but it turned out pretty nice.

    Look closer. You can get a print subscription sent right to your door, six issues, for less than $40. The print and digital only prices are very close. But, the print version is there.

    Check eBay. I buy old magazines there all the time.

    So what's people's thoughts on not painting the black plastic parts. Is it nessarily to paint it to look good or not? I'm still undecided.

    Who says we're bored? I may not know the area or the stores your talking about. But, I still find it interesting.

    I miss JoHan's U.S.A. Oldies seiries. The kits may not have been the greatest. But, I loved the subjects. And look at the great art work on box above. It sure makes a '62 Dart more appealing than it really was in model form or real life (IMO). I want one.

    What scale is this bike?

    I'm one of those. So thank you.
  14. unclescott58 added a post in a topic What Pleased You Today!   

    CARtoons is back! I just read the digital copy of issue #0. It's great! And to learn about CARtoons being back, on my birthday. Happy birthday to me! I'll tell you, I wasn't a 58 year old man as I sat there reading the latest issue of CARtoons. I felt young again! And that's no exaggeration.

    Just finished reading the digital copy of issue #0. Very, very kool! I loved it. I found myself chuckling out loud several times. Man, it's so cool to have CARtoons back! Just turned 58 today, and I felt like a kid, reading the latest issue. Thank you to the who bought this back. It was a great birthday gift.
