    And they wonder why they are losing money.

    I had one as well. I put 160,000 miles and 2 engines on it before a got rid of it.  2.8 litre V6 and 4 speed. It handled really well and could sure surprise a lot hot cars of the time. I don't know how fast it would go since it had one of those 85mph speedometers but you could easily bounce the needle of the post. I don't know if you are going for stock, but if so, the engines were red including the intake and valve covers. Neat finned aluminum valve covers.

    That's very well done and creative. I love 41 Fords and th are rarely done.

    I think the first was a '61 Ford and the second a '60 Plymouth.

    Really like that blue. Can you tell me what it is?

    I'm with you on this one. First car model I ever built was the AMT 32 roadster. Would love to have both the roadster and coupe back again.

    Quick internet search results:
    Chrysler 300B - 353 ci, 218.8 in. overall length and 126 in. wheel base
    Desoto Adventurer - 341 ci, 220.9 in. overall length and 126 in. wheel base
    Not a lot of difference.

    Thanks Brett. I pre-date the Pro Stock stuff so I didn't recognize the mountain motor term.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is a 1000 cc mountain motor?

    Gerald, I just did the same thing snake did and it works for me. Doesn't appear to be a forum problem.
  11. bamadon added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Actually arrived in yesterdays mail. A Revell 1948 Ford, Testors Honduras Maroon and a set of AMT Firestone Deluxe Champion tires. I ordered them from Mega Hobby on 4/6 and they arrived 4/11. I think that is pretty good service.

    Now that's what I'm talking about. It's like you read my mind. Did you do a build thread on that one?
  13. bamadon added a post in a topic My idea of a Hot Rod Ford.   

    That's very well done and the black paint is perfect. Just about like a 1:1 I would like to have, just in maroon. Looking at this inspired me to order the 48 coupe and some honduras maroon paint.

    Rest in peace Harry. I have your book and had hoped you would be able to sign it when you recovered. I know you're in a better place now.
