      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    My dad often recalled being at the Charlotte race that day.  From his vantage point on the opposite side of the track he recalled seeing the fireball erupt and subsequent black smoke.  It wasn't until later of being announced that Roberts was involved that he knew it was far more serious than initially reported.  That by chance wouldn't be the same color that Leeroy Yarborough painted his #12 66 Charger sponsored by Jon Thorne would it?   Great Build.

    The engine was a left over johan. The engine bay quite possibly came from the AMT 66 Fairlane or Cyclone which didn't need any coaxing, a natural fit.  The chassis on the other hand was a much harder endeavor. Originally I wanted to use the AMT 67 mustang chassis, front and rear suspension was very detail and a almost dead on for an AMC undercarriage but the AMX interior tub just didn't work with the chassis donor and the chassis wheelbase is longer. I found a somewhat generic chassis plate with dual exhaust and the rear axle molded in as with the Johan chassis plate there is no exhaust. I removed about 1/16 in the middle of the chassis to correct the wheel base. After thinking about it I feel like the chassis choice kept more in line with the model overall instead of a over blown detail adventure.
    The engine paint on the other hand.......     Years back you could go into Advance Auto, CARQUEST, etc, etc...and find a can of AMC engine paint. Trying to get and find the turqoiuse metallic shade of AMC, other than order a can of AMC engine spray, is a feat with in itself.  I probably sent more in paint and purple power that what I have in the build..Lol. Of the AMC builds I have, none of them are the same shade. Most of the blocks start out with a testors light blue as a base coat with some type of metallic green over spray to get the color effect. Call me cheap!  I did find find a bottle on the clearance aisle at HL called  "Pebeo" Prisme Carabbean Blue  in a 45 ml bottle that has come the closest with the basecoat.
    Hope this answers some of your questions and truly appreciate all of you taking the time to look......Chuck

    69 AMC AMX Big Bad Blue
    A Johan kit that I have had for some time.  Actually I friend of mine was going to throw it out with some other odds and ends. Glue stains on the body, a blob for an engine and a fender chip.  About a year ago I started on it with the purchase of MM #28127 Big Bad Blue paint and off and on sputtered to really get going on it until  I saw Sport Surburban"s Big Bad Green AMX http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/116160-69-amx-big-bad-green/ and got motivated again.
    I decided to add an engine bay since the original was lacking the correct bay and a donor chassis with more detail that was reduced to the correct wheelbase to fit. The decals are from Keith Marks, Tires from the AMT Tire Pack and rims from a AMT 70 Chevelle
