Whoopee cushions are okay with me. It's a fun little extra in Curly's Gasser. But, I really want the go kart. That and the canoe, paddles, and roof rack at came with MPC's '69 Bonneville hardtop kit. I really like those type extra bonuses.
Sorry to say Charlie, but the '50 Buick Special is not as close to '50 Olds 88 as you might think. In 1950 the Oldsmobile 88s were built off of GM's "A" body platform. Shared with Chevrolet and Pontiac. The Buick Specials for 1950 were on the larger "B" platform. Shared with the Olds 98 and the "small" Cadillac Series 61 ( the "big" Caddys, Series 62, were on the "C" platform along with the Buick Super and Roadmaster). GM's body sharing program can be quite confusing from that time period. Other problems, besides the body. Buick's own frame. And their use of a straight eight engine, rather than a V-8 like the Oldsmobile. All of that said, with I being a big Buick fan, I too would love to see a '50 Buick. Especially in a sedanette body like you mentioned. Actually I'd rather see a big Roadmaster, more than a a Special. But, again sorry to say Charlie, I think yours or mine wishes are not going to happen on this one. I hope I'm wrong on this. But, I'm not holding breath on seeing this one.
I don't know if I should be scared after getting your above response Harry? The Bird of Paradise Thunderbird isn't that bad is it? Your not worry that building this kit will lead me down a bad path, that I may need God's help? 😇
