    John, that's Ray Allen you are thinking of.....and as much as I like the hemis and all, that 70  LS6 of his during the 1970 season was the killer of killers.........the ace..........

    no, the annuals  from 67, 68, and 69 had the slant 6 and a hemi.........after that, the hemi was included without the six, until the late 80s when the hemi was dumped for the 383 wedge............the ace..........

  7. AC Norton added a post in a topic What's your opinion ? The Revell / Monogram Slingster VS The AMT Double Dragster ?   

    I just voted for the AMT double dragster kit....this is really an obvious choice here, as anything AMT trumps anything Revell , always........the ace........

    yes Bob, you get a printed set of 4 polyglas  L60S, and a set of 4 firestone white walls.....no slicks, though...I will try to post pics of all later tonite, its still a nice issue with some restored parts as I mentioned in a post yesterday....thanks for asking....the ace....

    ....if they market a lot of these 50s era boring rafts, they eventually will fail. the 61 Pontiac and the ford pickups are good moves, but to capture the dollars out there they need to concentrate on late 50s to mid 70s drag cars, and the muscle or quasi muscle cars that are largely forgotten. how about some 64-70 valiants, vega pro stocks, Fairmont,  66-69 falcons, etc, etc......even the 65 Plymouth  should have been made the cheapie sedan, as the drag car potential would have been endless.......just my opinions, of course....the ace....

    ....well, Tim, car models are a part of guys like all of us .....and I think so many of us have realized thru the years, that the love and enjoyment they brought us as kids is really no different than it is now in our pension years. I admit to being a bit in and out of actively building or collecting at times, as other interests have prevailed for periods,,,but car modeling always stays with me and I am sure glad it does. my most treasured memories in many ways relate to our hobby....my 3 best friends, all men that have passed away....were avid model car people, and I am proud to say that 2 of those friendships began all to do with models. at the NNL in Toledo 1985 the theme was the super sixties,,,and I won with 4 entries in 63, 64, 67, and 69. my best friend Ron Dube that attended all the shows and events with me thru the 80s and 90s  was even more excited and proud that I had won and done so well at that event than I even probably was. memories such as this never leave a person, and I think of times such as these often, and with feelings  very emotional for me personally. my precious wife Susan also passed away exactly 10 years ago today, and the many car models that I built while dating and thru married life are uncountable,,,always with her love and support thru the years. so, is our hobby an important one....well, to the masses no,,,,,,,to folks like us and those who love and support us, I like to think so......best,...the ace.....
