    well, if all else fails, just throw down a hundred and I'm certain one can be obtained double quick......that's what a true model car builder, collector, super star, whatever,,,,would do....heck, I'm jumping online as we speak and before my nights over  I'm determined to completely deplete my bank account,,,,lol,,.........the Ace...

    ....also, Pat,,,,not Cougar related, but a very nice set of SOHC covers are included in the AMT 68 Shelby GT 500 kits.....the Ace...

    .....the MPC  Dyno Don Cougar funny car, and the Air Lift Rattler of Fast Eddie Schartmans  from the late 60s issues had those, I believe. probably the STP Cougar of the same vintage too. I could be wrong here, but I seem to recall this from friends building those kits when we were young drag race freaks, and building nothing but......the Ace.....

    there is no rhyme or reason to ebay prices....never have been, never will be.....same goes for many Hot Wheel guys....they just HAVE to get it today, so price becomes irrelevant......then a month later, everybody buys the same piece and gets all they can carry for a buck each.......lol...lol.......the Ace..

    ....glad other guys are excited about these releases,,,in my case, its money that will be spent on other kits instead...nothing for me in that pile...the Ace...

    I know you've posted that pic before....but that's ok...post it , well,,,,,anytime. my fave of faves of all time. I can hear the hemi rev up  as those 10.50 MH's bite so hard it hurts......love it....the Ace........

    ........original 1969 annual  Johan 69  Roadrunner  cartoon box.......the memories, the car itself, hemi power, built several back in the day,,,, and even though we all have dozens of favorites,  I still even now tingle every time I see the box..........nothing like it......the Ace..........
  13. AC Norton added a post in a topic '70 Impala Tri-Carbs ?   

    yeah, you could....but nobody running class would when you get the top end punch from a tunnel ram and 2 Holleys.....the cfm  simply isn't there with the tri power compared to the air/ fuel flow as the typical setup mentioned. still though, for my drag Impala build, I will be using the 3 deuces and just call it a hot bracket car, its just too nice to throw in the parts box.....the Ace......
  14. AC Norton added a post in a topic '70 Impala Tri-Carbs ?   

    ...just noticed this post, and  even though the tri carb setup was a Corvette only option on some 427 engines,,,the carbs and air cleaners with this kit could still look very neat on the engine supplied and used in this Impala kit.... a street racer, bracket car, you name it  could have used almost any goodies, back in the day or presently. you could even call it a VETTE 427 tri power motor dropped in replacing an original engine being a small block, or 454 . as mentioned by other members here too, shops and racers could have installed many combos for street, or strip......I have 2 of these kits, and one will have this setup simply for appearance alone....it just looks so neat......my 2 cents.....the Ace...

    Mark, mine was a dark green 4 door hardtop, just 350 2bbl, PS, PB, full wheel covers....sure not loaded. great car, I loved it as my daily runner  in 1976-77 era, as my muscle cars rarely got driven.  they were nice dependable cars, and even though I've owned so many great cars from  1972 up, and had a zillion company cars thru the 70s up to early 90s in the car biz, I still have a soft spot for that old gal.......the Ace.....
