    Looks like I just found something to do today.

    Nice job. I had the chance to get one of these at a flea market, but when I went back it was gone. I wish I grabbed it when I saw it.

    I painted mine with brass brush paint.

    This one was at the museum also. I think the officer who screwed up the most for the week must have driven this one as punishment.

    This was parked outside the house the other day.

     
    At the AACA musuem in Hersey PA last week, the stunt car Herbie used in movies one and two.

    The chrome parts in the T kit had a nice assortment of custom parts and tools.

    There were some odd parts in the kit that looked like it was made to be motorized. If I remember there was a gear and what looked like a battery holder in the kit. I'll get a picture tomorrow. I didn't intend to to sidetrack the thread, and posted the picture because some one sounded like they were looking for a T-Bird motor in chrome, and this kit has that motor.

    I found that motor in this kit. Ollies had it a while ago for seven bucks.

    I got rid of my 95 Mercedes C280 money pit, and got this, an 08 Subaru 2.5i Legacy Limited with 39,000 miles.



     
    My other cars are a 98 Chrysler Sebring convertible, an 01 Chevy Monte Carlo SS, an 84 Pontiac Fiero SE with 233,000 miles. I posted pictures of them earlier in this thread so I won't post them again.

    I've been looking at this one for a while, and got it today. Now I want to get a 60 Impala and no more buying for a while, just building.

    I'm building this one. The big drawback is it's has some nice detaling on some of the kit, and not a lot of parts for the motor, and I don't have a supply of 1/16 parts to add to the kit. I did do some details like the wood firewall, dashboard with home cast resin gauges, and the floor under the driver. It will still be a nice buildup, though.

    Wow, what a difference!

    My daughters home made resin guages worked out OK. I added some guage decals to add detail, they are more modern than the car, but they work OK I think.

    Front end shot.

    I made a basic firewall out of the plywood, and did some paint details on the engine.

    The other side of the engine.

    I found this on a box with Lindberg display cases.
