  1. 40 Ford Custom

    Very smooth, right out of the 50's
  2. How about a Bonneville/dry lakes category?

    I just knew there would be something that wouldn't fit, there always is.
  3. How about a Bonneville/dry lakes category?

    Just change the headings from "Drag Racing" to Straight Line Racing and "Nascar" to Closed Course Racing. Covers pretty much everything.
  4. Any Veterans out there ?

    Little late. US Army and Army Reserve June 1966 to August 1993. 11B, Drill Sgt., 1st Sgt, and NCOES Instructor.
  5. First SNOW of winter 2018/19 YUCK!

    That's why I don't miss living in Syracuse. I'll take Alabama any day.
  6. Miss Mighty Mopar

    Looks really good. I always like that Barracuda body style.
  7. guidance needed 1/25 people

    Greg, check Walthers.com. You can sort their web site to specific scale (G scale) and figures only. They have hundreds shown there.
  8. 1940 Ford A/G or B/G Gasser Build

    Been following this and it's looking real good. Just like I remember.
  9. 1940 Ford A/G or B/G Gasser Build

    This is coming along nicely. I was attending the drags in '62 and remember this style gasser well.
  10. What Irked You Today?

    Thanks Ace. I'll follow your advice and see what shows up.
  11. What Irked You Today?

    I thought possibly a bad battery so I had it tested. The test showed something drawing excess power with the engine off. I'm not sure that a bad alternator as Rob suggested could cause that.
  12. What Irked You Today?

    My 2003 car has developed a parasitic battery drain. Fully charge the battery at night and by morning it's completely dead. I don't have any idea how to track down the drain so this could get expensive.
  13. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I had one of those about 45 years ago as well. I really liked it. Not sure which model it was but doesn't matter since it was stolen along with a compressor from my garage years ago. I may have to look for a replacement now that you reminded me.
  14. Reissue Wishlist

    That Autocar dump truck is one that I would love to get. My Dad worked construction and drove one of those. He said it was the best truck he ever drove and he drove a lot of them.
