  1. 1966 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine

    Now that goes above and beyond. Really captures the look of the limo! The roof treatment reminds me of the old Derham conversions which had heavily padded leather tops with small back windows. Looking forward to more of your Caddys!
  2. Name that movie quote

    "He used to give me the fingah!"
  3. Name that movie quote

    The Godfather.
  4. Head Light Bezels

    Check out the AMT '34 Ford pickup - the pair of small lights that mount to the wrecker boom might be just what you need, and they come with clear lenses.
  5. Best tool I ever purchased, can't find it again.

    I picked up a set of three small replacement chisel points at HobbyTown USA for $12 and change; no handle but their shafts fit right into the 1/16" collet in my pin vise.
  6. Misc. Parts wanted.

    Sam, I just checked my stash and I have one NOS '61 Buick Invicta wheelcover - can you mold it and cast more? If not I'll make some molds and cast up a set; need to keep in practice.
  7. Body and Chassis cutting?

    How about this, for as low as $16.99 including shipping? https://www.amazon.com/KB-Electronics-8811005-Dial-Control/dp/B0087486N4?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_6#feature-bullets-btf It plugs into the wall outlet and your drill plugs into the bottom; it's a speed control for large fans. I found it by googling "plug-in rheostat".
  8. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    At the LMMCC meeting last night I picked up a started AMT '58 Impala to be a donor for the Flintstone sedan delivery, and a pair of what appear to be those elusive custom wire wheel covers from the AMT '64 Fairlane (Thanks Steve G.). Also got a set of '36 Ford wheel spiders cast up for me by Tom Piagari from my mold (he has a pressure pot - I don't; thanks greatly!) and a set of Caddy Sabre wheels from Tom Geiger (again, thanks greatly!).
  9. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    "Telephone... telephone... telephone..."
  10. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    For me, 1957 - wouldn't mind having any American car from that year, except maybe Packard (that would have to be '56) or fullsize Nash.
  11. What is living?

    And if you want to really live in 1/24 scale, here you go: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Simca-Aronde-P60-Elysee-1960-1-24-New-Box-Diecast-model-Car-auto-vintage/352583546863?hash=item52179df7ef:g:wC8AAOSw7GNav0wO Another little diecast gem from the folks at Hachette. (1/24 scale Lee slacks not included.)
  12. 1977 1978 1979 Thunderbird progress

    Magnificent work, Paul! Even if by some unimaginable twist of fate Revell makes one, I bet it won't look nearly as good!
  13. Fake eBay "Special Discount" email -

    I'm kind of at the point where I just may pass on this one due to (1) a backlog of projects and (2) I'd still have to get a '57 promo for the wheelcovers and bumpers. Paging Paul Hettick, if you'd like to tackle this...
