  1. 1969 Dodge Charger Convertable

    (Don Pardo voice) Not just any exec, Snake! That's Elwood P. Engel, the Ford stylist Chrysler hired to de-Exnerize their '63-'64 car lines (which explains the slab-sided, knife-edged Imperials and why the Turbine resembles the '61-'63 T-bird in side view).
  2. Car Art: '63 Ferrari 250 GTO. Sorry...no Legos

    OK, just build the other half.
  3. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    were scratchbuilding material
  4. Dukes of Hazzard Diorama

    Scott, that dust cloud alone is a work of art - brilliant job!
  5. Anyone watch Ripley's Believe It or Not? tonight 7/14/2019

    Seriously, it might be interesting to compare the drag coefficient between the real car and the Lego one to see whether the more pebbly surface on the "Legatti" improves the Cd.
  6. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    A friend's daughter had one in the mid-Eighties - a '72 notchback coupe in bright blue - very rare even then. Some local firebug later torched it.

    I sort of played with photoshop time travel for this: My mom with her friend's car in the late '40s. She remembered it as a LaSalle, but that didn't look right to me. After a whole lot of Googling I IDed it as a '38 Nash Lafayette: Turns out Mom was half right - it was named after a famous Frenchman whose name began with "La"... So I combined the two images to get a complete car; luckily the backgrounds were similar although the angle wasn't quite perfect:
  8. Time travel.

    Loved this! Good thing you had some nice clear photos to work with. (He may have been about 25 years too early to say "freaking me out", unless he did some time travel himself )
  9. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    good for tobacconist
  10. Most beautiful planes of all time...

    (Snake is probably wondering where I am!) This one has always been a favorite of mine: The Convair XB-46. Beautifully simple, graceful lines, but an also-ran in real life, outperformed by the B-45 Tornado (which had its own batch of problems) and the way-more-successful B-47.
  11. ONCE UPON A TIME..... (game)

    Can't afFORD? Tough.
  12. DECO-DENT, LFA-Powered Auburn Speedster Hardtop
