  1. Sorry I missed these posts. I have it finished and need to post it in under glass. Thanks for the kind comments.
  2. This is a beauty. I recently picked one up that is in need of a restoration, but was happy to get it.
  3. Ha! I'm 55 as well, and I did attempt one of these when I was about 10-11. You notice I said "attempt", it was more like I ruined it. I have always wanted a second chance, but prices have been crazy. So even with any little defects, I was happy when a friend told me it had been re-issued. Mine will be here about the end of the month. I will be watching yours for sure.
  4. What a beautiful build. 😍
  5. Lots of great work going on here. Both finished as well as progress. I finally have an update. The interior is wrapped up. I need to polish the glass and hope the glue marks are not visible or I will need replacements. Bmf is my nemesis. I need to foil four projects that are stalled because of that.
  6. I really love when someone takes a car that many might say "that's sacrilege", and just do it anyway. I took a 250 GTO and made it into a dirt tracker. 😃
  7. I can get it on Hulu. Good thing, because I wore out my DVDs...twice.
  8. The owner said he would make me a deal, but I had to take the stands. One is relatively modern, made out of tin, the other one (according to the owner) is about 40 years old and I believe it, it is made out of plywood. He is 73, and has had the hobby shop for decades, but it is time to retire he says.
  9. Me too, and it's still the most watched series finale.
  10. At least I now have proof of my problem with squirrels....just ask my Dr, my neurologist, and my neuropsychologist

  11. Yup, M*A*S*H* turns 50 today. My alltime favorite tv series. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/16/arts/television/alan-alda-mash-anniversary.html
  12. Another brick and mortar is closing. I found out on the second to last day, so it was picked pretty clean. I did find these... (Yes, I know, the van needs cleaned)
  13. I will post pics of the one I have later on tonight when I get home. It will be used in a 56 t-bird I have.
  14. A friend of mine has one of these that I helped restore. Petty blue. I have this kit, and will be using the chassis from the 71 Charger...when I get around to it. 😬
  15. Yup, there is such a thing. 😃 https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://model-a-ford.org/event/international-model-a-ford-day/%3Finstance_id%3D317%23:~:text%3DINTERNATIONAL%20MODEL%20%E2%80%9CA%E2%80%9D%20FORD%20DAY%2C%202022%2C%20will%20take,rain%20date%20of%209%2F18.&ved=2ahUKEwiA9Zqvspz6AhX3MDQIHezpAVYQFnoECA8QBQ&usg=AOvVaw3fdXTK0Fud9fwZpWUM-eIJ
  16. Love the 59's. Great looking street machine.
  17. My 59 has stalled due to the foil work. I love the cars from the age of excess era, but all that chrome comes back to bite you when it's time to bmf them. 😁
  18. Yes, you could get either barn doors, or the tailgate style.
