    I am missing the ability to go to the last unread post in any topic.  I hope this feature will be available when things get sorted out.

    No, no and more no. The remakes are wrong and the vehicles, let's don't even go there. They are simultaneously destroying two masterpieces of what where the 80s. Understand I am not calling the movies themselves masterpieces but they are a classics of their time. I have yet to see a successful movie be remade better .

    That is looking pretty sweet. I can relate to the cheesy thing as that is was I was thinking of the pod racer until I built one. Thanks for sharing.

    It is a shame that the dedication and skill of this hobby are not appreciated by the masses. The costs of a hobby is only truly relevant if you can't afford to even be involved. I'm guessing most if not all of us here are involved at some level and have spent a different % of our time and incomes to get the same satisfaction. But in the end, it matters nothing. Let's just enjoy the ride and awesome builds and forget the cost and where our builds will end up. This is just my opinion, I don't mind hearing others.

    I was very impressed with your Janis Joplin Porche paint job but now add your scratch building skills. You sir have talent and I thank you for sharing them.

    Mine is very box stock, in fact it's still in the box so no pictures. I will say I only bought it because of the builds that you guys have shared-so thanks?

    That's pretty cool Pat. What grit of sandpaper did you use? I can see many possible uses for this look. Thanks for sharing.

    This created some interesting responses to my my post but no on the HOA,s. This was about codes and inspectors in the housing industry turning down something built to code and approved blueprints and then saying how it should be done (opposite of said plans and codes and approved engineering ). This is the classic example of the turtle on the post.

    Congrats. You should be excited, the best to you and your family.

    A 58. I find questionnaires like this interesting but they can be very vague and answer driven. Not to say this was, but sometimes (D- none of the above) is the correct but unavailable answer. We are a creative bunch none the less, at least when the mood strikes. Sigh-come on mood.

    My irk is people put into a minor position of power who in turn can interpret and inflict rules which cause much financial and emotional burden without recourse.

    Nice job Dan. It looks likes a natural as a 4x4.
  13. Ridge Rider added a post in a topic Mad max   

    In my opinion it was worth the wait. Dialogue and story, forget about it. The cinematography, setting, and action are worth the price of admission. I can see some serious kitbashing from this movie and I can hardly wait to see this movies influence show up here. One may be from me if the stars are aligned right.

    I'm thinking the Honda Civic is from Pulp Fiction.

    This is from Nobody's Fool.

    Try a new one

    This ones a little dark so i will give a quote from the movie.

    "Some men are Baptists, others Catholics, my father was an Oldsmobile man."
