  1. oldcars added a post in a topic Lost Words From Our Childhood   

    One day my wife and I were talking about putting an LP on the juke box(record player). Our granddaughter had no idea what were talking about. Then I made the mistake of talking about 45's. Finally told her it was like a CD with a very big hole in it. Had to pick my wife up off the floor from laughter. Was afraid to talk about eight tracks.

    Thanks Tom. Got the decals a couple of days ago and they are really nice. Better than I was hoping for ( high quality). Going to enjoy using them. Richard

    Thanks Gregg. Love the magazine. Was really big into slots back in the 60's. When not at work was at one of a half dozen tracks. Richard

    I put around 300 kits in storage in Sioux Falls, South Dakota back in 1992, to be there for about 6 months, Finally got them in 2012. They are all just fine(including the decals). They went though hot summers and very cold winters. Outside storage unit.

    That is really funny. My issue is the first one I have ever received with any damage on the cover. About the same as yours Jairus. HHMMM! Mine only had come down the road about 50 miles from Denver.

    Had a great trade with Ken Krawiec "Bigtruck". Kit came in fantastic shape( and very quick). Would trade with Ken anytime. Super fellow!

    I have a AMT 1973 mustang kit with a great picture of the louvered back window. No louvers!! Found out the 1971 kit (which doesn't show the louvers), has it in that kit. Was not about to buy a second kit just to get this piece. Was pre-round2(a few years ago). Still need the louvers. Richard.
  11. oldcars added a post in a topic What was your 1st 1 to car   

    My first car was after highschool. Had a motorcycle earlier. Hard to take girls on dates in the rain and winter months. Back to the car. It was a 61 austin healy "bugeye" sprite. Had plexiglass slide open removable side windows. Wasn't much better that cycle in the winter(at least the cycle would start). Got to know all the city bus drivers by there first names during the winter. But when it ran my dates did stay dry (and somewhat warm). After two winters I traded for a Simca 1000. It had real rollup windows and a heater that worked all the time. Met my wife with it. Richard
  12. oldcars added a post in a topic What is the longest you have taken on a build?   

    That is truly amazing. I have a 49 merc I started on in 1963 (duel headlights, painted whitewall slicks, etc.) that will probably NEVER be finished. I did things on it back then that to this day I have no idea how I did. I look at at it every now and then and put the parts back in the well worn box. It is now almost a shrine . Richard
