    I'd actually buy a few of those!

    American Graffiti is one of those movies that most people can relate to. The burger joints, the cruising, the stop-light drag racing was all accurately portrayed in that movie.
    The F&F franchise is so far fetched you can't relate to it but unfortunately you have all these young kids out there trying to emulate the movie and crashing all over the place.
    And that is why I have such a dislike for those movies.

    I'd love to see an eighties caprice done but without readily available police car decals I don't think they would sell well enough.

    The new site sucks for sure, I miss the old site.

    Some good news in regards to the '70 f-100 kits; the molds for the body parts have been
    polished out so no more grainy sand blasted texture.  Thank you Moebius!

    That is just absolutely hideous looking.

    Aligning with Roush is a step backwards in my opinion.

    the modern tool amt '70 camaro z28 has a nicely done 350 in it.
  11. chitownbri added a post in a topic Dipmobile? Build idea? Anyone?   

    It looks like it was based of the Italeri DAF 2800. http://italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2064&idCategoria=7&idSottocategoria=34

    and the metalizer can be buffed till you get to a sheen you're happy with
  13. chitownbri added a post in a topic If you could afford to have a kit designed   

    I'd like to see some Jeep pickups too, like the Comanche (sp?) from the early eighties.

    I would also add '81-92 Dodge Ram pickups and Ramcharger to that list, that body style has never been done in plastic. I would do 2x4, 4x4, short bed, long bed
    and maybe even a club cab and dually.  I would include lots of accessories for the 4x4 kits too.
  15. chitownbri added a post in a topic Build journal anyone?   

    I keep a log book for my nascar builds, I find it helps to keep track of what I need for donor kits. I keep them
    categorized according to make and year group(i.e. '95-99 chevy).
    I write down the year, car#, sponsor and then i have columns that I check off when i have the
    donor kit i need. And then when the build is done i highlight the entry in yellow so that way i know
    not to count that one anymore. As for my street cars and trucks i don't keep any records of any sort, its a
    hobby for me so therefore its irrelevant to me as to how much i paid for it, how long it took to complete it and so on.
