    This topic has gravitated to an interesting question; where did the '67-69 Barracuda tool originate. Like the '67 Chevy Fleetside, it started in an AMT box and resurfaced in 1968 in a MPC box. To the casual observer, the part count and details seem the same in the 1967 AMT and the 1968 MPC. I am not sure it is the same tool, but it could be.

    My 2010 Ford Escape went into a Failure Mode. Instead of the throttle body stuck open at 100mph, the Escape ran at 5mph.

    The 1979-1989 Crown Vic would be interesting to me.

    It is worth noting that the supercharger parts are in the Del Rio kit. Interestingly, the supercharger parts are not mentioned in the directions. Anybody got an exploded view of the blower? I want to use it!

    I am guessing the original '69 Barracuda had a HEMI and slant six, and now it has a wedge 383?
    My feeling is that you will never see an all new kit from Round2, or a heavily modified reissue. Retro boxes and restored parts are about what I expect.

    If Round2 reissued just one of those kits it would be nice.

    You have the correct wheel well moldings.
    Are those tail lights from Shawn Carpenter, or decals? They sure look good.

    Yeah, the Skyliner plastic roof is really a prototype of the Amana Radar Range microwave oven.

    My definition of a gluebomb is when the glass is hopelessly fused to the body. Your Lincoln seem pretty good.

    What did the tires look like from the kit? Pad printed lettered or white walls?

    ACE, what are the tires like? Printed?

    I noticed the reissued ERTL '74 Barracuda is a former Super Stocker as the wheel wells are still a bit funky. Did MPC modify any other annual kits?

    Monogram 1/24? I has more detail than the MPC 1/25. Or, is it some other kit?

    I bought a 1968 MPC Coronet HT for that contest. My attempt sucked and I threw it in the trash. I wish I had kept it. Maybe I could have fixed it.
