    Fingers crossed for you, Harry.

    Looking at that side view, now I see where the '74 Matador coupe came from!

    Big red "Baby Lincoln" - love it!

    Excellent job on this Roundup! I've been watching these bodies on eBay lately and hoping somebody would tackle one. Nice to know Jimmy Flintstone did such a good job this time.

    The front - say, mid-door to cowl - of it is '29 A, but the rear half is from a '27 T roadster, according to what I've read about how it was built. So I figured maybe cut it at the rear door jambs and mate it with the front half of the touring body.

    I hope I can be forgiven for seeing this done up as a '60s show rod, like a touring car version of Tognotti's King T...

    This is a bit out of left field, but has anyone here tried combining the rear half of the Ala Kart's body with the front half of an AMT '27 T touring to get an accurate '27 roadster body? Of course the turtledeck would be another matter, but it might be good for a bobtail hot rod.

    That scratching sound you hear is scribers, X-Acto blade points and photoetch saws opening up hoods on AMT '64 Comets across the land!

    The Aussie Falcon wagon didn't sell.

    Yes, the first thing I learned about searching for car parts on eBay was to exclude the word "Fits:"

    My mother once said the worst thing about being a woman was having to carry a purse. I'm not sure she was exaggerating much.

    Facebook - I don't have a page but there are a couple pages I check now and then for photos (one for Hobbs Army Air Field and one for Paducah, KY), and I follow some old friends back in CA including some of my Aztec dancer buddies (one still has a MySpace page).
    Tattoos - There's one Aztec insignia (my name sign) I want to do but I haven't had the cash and the inclination at the same time.
    Piercings - thought about it (ear) but never did it. Ever get a zit in your earlobe? I used to, so I figured a piercing wouldn't help the situation much.
    Mobile - Got a decent TracFone for my occasional calls that's smart enough to take good pictures; it can text but I've only used that to enter a radio contest.
    YouTube - I've put up a couple rare videos regarding the death of H.B. Halicki (Gone in 60 Seconds) that I could post here if you're interested.
     
     
  15. ChrisBcritter added a post in a topic Need some design help. AMT '57 Chrysler   

    You could also use it to convert the Jo-Han/X-El '59 Chrysler New Yorker four-door hardtop into a two-door, or just combine it with the rear half of the '59 body to make a 300E. You will have to reshape/extend the fins almost to the driver's door jamb.
    I'm redoing a '59 DeSoto as a two-door using the '57 300C; a couple quick-and-dirty shots of where it's at:


    And what I need to do next: Move the door handles back and fix the fins to match the line shown...

    What do you think?
