    Dad's first car was a 39 Buick sedan in black, but that was before my time.  I spent a good part of my youth in the back seat of a 48 Buick convertible, getting my feet cooked during the winter by the gas-fired Southwind heater under the front seat.  Traded that in for a 58 Biscayne 4 door with a six and Powerglide.  First car I ever drove.  Dad's final car was a 67 Catalina sedan, which still resides in my garage.

    I thought it was "Tach it up".

    It is.

    One more bit of trivia;
    The kit is labeled "Boss Man" because Jo-Han was trying to tie it in with the then-popular Dukes Of Hazzard TV show.  Boss Hogg had a white Caddy convertible on that show, but it wasn't a 68.

    The tooling was scrapped years ago, along with the Visible Chassis, unfortunately.

    Flying off the shelves where? Not in the US. Heller doesn't have a distributor here. My understanding is that cycles have never sold well for either Reve/US or Germany. By "well", I mean in reasonable numbers to the casual builder and general consumer, not just the hard-core hobbyists who are mostly responsible for the flying kits.
    I'm all for variety in kit reissues, but companies like Revell have to look at the big picture. No sleeping involved.

    Model companies re-issueing old kits of a certain type is not a "resurgence". If they sell well and more get re-issued because of that, that's a "resurgence". Only time will tell, but by all means, continue the Revell-Bashing.

    What, the radio? Not every 1959 Ford was born with a radio. Many cars from that era were ordered without one. Maybe the car AMT based the kit on didn't have one. My Dad's 58 Biscayne had a filler plate where the radio would normally be. He used to take his Sears "7 Transistor" pocket radio with him to listen to Cubs games on the go.
