    Are those vette wheels available anywhere else? Look like what you'd need to build a decent 'Lawman' '70 Boss 429 car.

    And likewise, finding a high quality trader in Mike S.    Thanks!
    also long overdue kudos for trades with Dan H and Karl B...

    How about the excellent '66 Fairlane/Comet 390 ( visually identical to 428) with dress up parts from revell '68 CJ ?

    And for those wanting to build an accurate Parisienne or Laurentian hardtop, the '62 AMT Chev chassis wheelbase matches the body perfectly. Its even easy to find parts to build the 'Super Astro-Flame' (  ) 348 tri-power that was the top mill that year for northern ponchos. Don't forget to switch to chev style parallel wipers as well...

    Kind of  captive market out there in the middle of nowhere...
    Fair selection at most alberta stores I've checked. Normal pricing here is close to hobby shop retail and coupon pricing taking it below twenty bucks (can) makes it well worth a visit.

    The 429 from the latest revell 70 torino kit is an exact stand-in for a 460 and has nice ford motorsport valve covers. It's possible the headers could be modified to fit but I haven't tried yet...

    Stumbled across this little darlin' with two hours left on the clock, a low buy-in and no apparent watchers...

    Put in a bid at what I expected some sniper might throw in at the last ticks of the clock. Sure enough, the competing bid was fired in...
    for a whole dollar more          Piker 
    Final tally was a quarter of a c-note, plus one buck 
    'course, being listed as a 'mavrick' may have helped it elude the search engines; just like the pair of 'flacon' awb bodies I picked up for less than a sawbuck a couple of years ago

    Hmmmmm... must be related to the CRS syndrome that I'm occasionally afflicted with

    That suburbanite 8.45-15 tire is a great looking tire. My lone surviving original scales out to a 27-28" OD, a tad on the small side but passable. Hope fully some original style tires in the 30-32" range  will be brought to market.

    I've got the same one, Steve, picked up from an r&r supplier. In addition to it being a real turd, whoever cleaned up the casting slipped and wiped out half the lower windshield molding and one wiper. Maybe I'll try to adapt the front fenders to one of the falcon bodies...
    Apparently perry's resin did one too.
