    It's short for I appreciate it. I most often hear it used on NNN, the Non News Network.

    Stunning.  My hat's off to anyone that takes on a Pocher. Excellent job.

    Irregardless. It's not a word.
    "Ask your doctor about..." why is your doctor withholding information? 
    "Tell your doctor if you're pregnant" Shouldn't your doctor know this?
    "Have you or a loved oned been injured or died..."
    It really bugs me to hear a newscaster say "preciate it". Stop being cute & give me the news please.

    Sorry for the confusion.  It's the gravel guard I was referring to.  I think Mike was paying a little too much attention to the models "hand".
    I went ahead and bought a 1/25 scale ERTL die cast. Ran me about $27 shipped but it'll be quicker then me trying to scratch build it. As Ray mentioned,  the protrusion at the leading edge of the fender would be my challenge.  Either figure out how to replicate it or sand down the lip of the wheel opening which I'd rather not do. Now I just hope the scale of the ERTL die cast matches the Revell kit.

    This thread should have come with a warning. And to think some guys spent their time, money and energy to build these. To each his own I guess but some of those are just down right hideous.

    That should be one nice Corvair when your done. I'm curious as to what engine you'll be using as well.  Here's a guy that built a mid engine Corvair:

    Nice job on the w123. I love seeing the old tanks still on the road. Makes me miss my w124 wagon.

    Very nice looking '55. Definitely a classic and you've done it justice.

    Die cast 55 Chevy
    Hi all. I'm looking for the Franklin Mint or ERTL 1955 Bel Air. I'm really just trying to find the chrome fender gravel guards behind the front wheels. Thanks.
