    With Honda's engineering prowess I would be shocked if it isn't competitive right out of the box.

    Just for reference this was Revell's BM Corvette kit.

    Not my work but a nice build-up of the kit.

    Change the hood and you would pretty much have the Yenko coupe.

    The Revell/Monogram '66 Mustang / Shelby GT350 has nice fined "Cobra" valve covers.

    Never understood why Ford quit selling the Ranger in the US.  I have owned (3).  My first was an '85 I bough used.  It looked good but I hated the 4-cylinder engine. My second was a '93 extended cab which I bought new with a 4.0 V6.  Drove it for 225K miles before selling it on.  My current is a 2010 4x4 extended cab again with the 4.0 V6.  Great trucks in my opinion and happy to see them returning.

    Ford Bronco and Ranger Are Coming Back!
   By Chris PerkinsOct 3, 2016 Last year, a proposed contract between the United Auto Workers (UAW) and Ford hinted that the automaker would introduce brand-new versions of the Bronco 4x4 and Ranger pickup truck. When Donald Trump seized on Ford's decision to move small car production to Mexico during a Presidential debate, the UAW countered with some fact-checking—and in the process, confirmed the return of the Bronco and Ranger.Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Shown above, a fan's imaginary rendering of what a 2020 Ford Bronco could look like, originally published on
    Bill Johnson, a UAW rep for Ford's Wayne, Michigan plant, confirmed to the Detroit Free Press that the Bronco and Ranger will begin production once Focus and C-Max production shifts to Mexico. Johnson felt the need to clear the air after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump falsely accused Ford of cutting U.S. jobs during the first Presidential debate.
    Most Popular "I think Trump needs to get his facts straight," Johnson told the Freep. "He is absolutely beating up on Ford for doing what everybody else has already done."
    "We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly, that absolutely secures the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does," Johnson said, emphasis ours.
    Ford's decision to favor truck production in its U.S. facilities makes sense. Small cars aren't as profitable as trucks, and building them in the U.S. is vastly more expensive. As Johnson explained, switching U.S. facilities over to high-margin truck production ensures that those manufacturing jobs will stay in the U.S.
    Ford has teased a 21st-century Bronco for years, and with fuel prices down and truck sales up, now is a great time to bring it to market. And with the Jeep Wrangler dominating the two-door off-roader market, Ford definitely wants a piece of the action.
    As for the Ranger, the mid-size pickup truck market has seen a revival with the new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, as well as the Toyota Tacoma and perhaps even the Honda Ridgeline.
    We've daydreamed about a new Bronco and Ranger for quite a while now, so Johnson's confirmation is great news. Frankly, 2020 can't come soon enough.

    Michael Schumacher's family have taken a Germany magazine to court over a false report the seven-time world champion can walk again.
    Last December, celebrity magazine Bunte published a front page story claiming Schumacher -- who suffered a serious head injury in a skiing accident two years' earlier -- was able to take a few steps with therapists and raise an arm. Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm immediately refuted the story, calling the report "irresponsible" and saying it "gave false hopes to many involved people".
    The Schumacher family has taken the magazine to court in Hamburg, with lawyer Felix Damm saying the story was not only false but breached privacy laws as they contained claims about the German's health. Since his accident the full extent of Schumacher's injuries have been kept secret, but as part of the lawsuit Damm has had to confirm he "cannot walk" as the report stated.
    Bunte's defence team say the information came from a previously reliable informant -- named as "a friend of Schumacher" in the original article -- who had good knowledge of his condition. The judge presiding over the trial has indicated damages are likely to be awarded to the Schumacher family in the region of 40,000-100,000 Euros. A final verdict is expected in October, according to the Mirror.
