    Another '57 Ford
    Started this while I was doing the wagon. I molded the taillight bezels to the body and the car was nosed, decked and shaved. The colors are Ford Twilight Blue Metallic and Nissan Super White. The engine is the kit 312 with the intake from the AMT '57 Thunderbird. The supercharger is from Revell's Fireball Roberts Ford (still trying to line it up right. grrr.). Little things; alternator replaces battery. Battery is modern. A parts by parks distributor' heater hoses and a bit of wiring. The Cragars are from another '65 Galaxie and the tires are Revell's no name Goodyears. This was a fun build.

    thanks guys. i've had quite a few fox fords over the years. the red one is going to get fresh paint over the winter. the turbo (aka blue voodoo) is my collector car and the the v6 is my work car, or soon to be again. some idiot backed into it in january, taking out the grill, lights, header and hood. thats when i bought the red one. it had 119,600 on it. even the ac works. the v6 is the best one in the snow. toss the snow tires on it and it is almost unstoppable.

    The turbo sat for a while. It has 86.000 miles on it. Oddly. though it doesn't have many options on it. Premium sound, sunroof, auto and that's it. Even the passenger seat is manually operated and there's no cornering lamps or headlight delay.

    Playing With Thunderbirds
    These are like Lay's potato chips. The red one is an .88 LX V8, the blue one is an '87 Turbo Coupe and the brown one with the TC hood and white nose is my '87 V6 base model. Can't have just one...

    Really nice Ranchero. Was that mastered from an old toy? I had the wagon and Ranchero when I was a kid.

    1957 Del Rio
    I think I might have been away for awhile (work and playing with my Thunderbirds). However< I haven't been idle. Here's one I just finished. Its Revell's '57 Ranch Wagon. I love this kit. It fell together vey nicely. I did a few minor changes. The tires are AMT Goodyears from a ,66 Fairlane with Cragars from a '65 Galaxie. The taillights are from the .56 Ford and the headlights came from an AMT parts pack.

    last year, i found this 1987 thunderbird for 1400 bucks. It had 95,000 miles om the clock. its the base model with the 3.8, and it runs like a champ. i did all the stuff that gets neglected on cars (shocks, struts, tune up, exhaust and a flush, fluid and filter change for the trans). brakes are next, and when warm weather starts, i can begin adressing some cosmetic issues.

    Since the only place I have to paint is outdoors, well, you can imagine the bodies stacking up around here (no, not human).There's an '81 Ford flareside waiting for the final color coat and some clear. Then there's the '63 Ford, '55 Chrysler, '69 Dart, '62 Pontiac and '66 Fairlane all awaiting the same fate. Warm up, dagnabbit.
