    The AMT 58 Chevy has a tube grille you may be able to modify.

    I knew that you were suggesting a group build of the Charger and that it didn't have to be a HS type ride build. I'm definitely interested in joining in on one.

    I don't remember any at my HS either (class of 71). It also could be due to their low production #'s, 37,300 +/- for 1966, 15,788 +/- for 1967.
    Charger sales didn't take off until 1968 when over 92,000 were sold

    I usually buy paint or some other supply if I do not find a kit I want with my coupon.
    Also, you can ask the person in the model section to special order any kit they usually stock. Most of their stock levels are set at 1 or 2 for each kit. My store gets their restock in on Tuesday. Sometimes the kit you are looking for will be sold out in a few days. My HL will order what you want and hold it for 2 weeks.

    Looks like a custom that would have been featured In Car Craft or one of the other magazines back in the 60's. It certainly has that look.

    Great idea to use the Citation body. I lost interest in the North East modifieds when they all started using the Cavalier bodies.The coupes and coaches were my favorites, I didn't mind the  transition to the Pinto's, Vega's, Gremlins and so on..The use of the Citation reminds me of the Pinto/ Vega era. Really nice work.

    Picked up the 57 Ford Del Rio wagon at Hobby Lobby today, about 16.80 with tax with my 40 off coupon.

    New releases at Hobby Lobby
    Stopped in at the Hobby Lobby in Mooresville NC this afternoon. Quite a few empty spaces but the tags were on the shelves for the new releases. Found the person that handles the area and asked if they had any of the kits that belonged there.She told me that they just finished putting the tags up for the new additions but the kits had not been priced yet. That was why they weren't available on the shelves.  She was able to get me the 57 Ford wagon from the stockroom and I bought it with my 40% off coupon.
    So, if you are at Hobby Lobby and see a tag where a new release should be, ask the sales staff if it is still in the storeroom. Many of you probably have a HL that is close by, mine is 70 miles round trip.

    I'd be in for a group build, I already have a Buyers Choice edition.. I've wanted to build one as a former 60's Super Stocker that was converted to run brackets due to NHRA rule changes.
    I'm also considering waiting for the new release before I build so it has the better white plastic.

    Kevin, thanks for posting the link. Some functions of the new forum do not work for me compared to the old forum.

    Stock hood for AMT 69 Chevelle
    Need a stock hood for an AMT 69 Chevelle. Need not be new, painted OK as I can strip it if needed.
    Have parts to trade if necessary, LMK what you may need, I may have it.
    Please PM me if you have one and I'll get back to you ASAP
    Thanks
