    Thanks, Gary.
    Haven't had to do this yet but nice to know how when it comes up.

    Gary, are you saying you had to correct the warp after the hot water, or did it correct itself.
    Sorry, I seem to be a bit dense right now.
    Thanks,
    Russ

    Hmmm, if that Datsun is the flip front I might change my mind. I just saw 4 wheel drive and lost interest.
    Any chance it still has any of the Lil Hustler suspension pieces included?
    Thanks, Russ

    I can't make out any details on the side of that car. Anyone know the name or other details so I could find out about it online?
    Thanks,

    Flying Wedge-MANY. I know it really didn't work well in real life, but it is my all time favorite dragster style.
    Trojan Horse- at least a couple. Maybe more. Owned a couple of Mustang IIs in the past. And that era funny car still looked like the real one.
    Bison-maybe one or two just for the engines. And maybe one to build, not into pullers but you never know.
    Snake dragster-maybe. I'd much rather have the funny car back.
    Others-not so much.

    Short of winning the lottery, no.

    Absolutely collect the new ones if you like them. My point earlier was just don't plan on retiring off the profits.

    What he said. The redlnes are collectible only because all us old guys had them as kids and want them back. Not going to happen with the new ones for the most part. 
    I was doing this with Star Trek stuff in the nineties until I realized that stuff would never be worth anything in my lifetime. Seeing what the stuff is going for now makes me want to give it away the prices are so low.

    yep. promised my wife I wouldn't try again, doesn't mean I don't still want to die.

    She appeared on an episode of the old 'Who's line is it, anyway'. Back with Drew Carey. One of the best ones in my opinion.
    Everybody is dying this year but me. Not fair.

  13. russosborne added a post in a topic Goldfinger Rolls Royce Phantom III ever kitted?   

    thanks, again. With this guy, it HAS to be a kit, no kit bashing or modifying. He is no where near able or wanting to do that.
    I saw a 1/43rd scale diecast(if I am remembering correctly) of the movie car on Ebay. I am going to let him know those exist. He'll probably be happy with that.

  14. russosborne added a post in a topic 53 Corvette hardtop?   

    Thanks, all.
    I am going to tell the guy that all 1953 Corvettes were convertible only from the factory.
    He's probably thinking of a different year, but it's hard to tell with him.

  15. russosborne added a post in a topic 53 Corvette hardtop?   

    Ah, thanks.
    this is another NFM (not for me) car. Guy wants the 53 but with a hardtop. Not sure if he is confused or what. I'll let him know.
    Would a hardtop from say the 57 AMT kit work on the 53 without lots of work? Saw a bunch of those for sale. Could tell him he needs to buy that kit as well and give the leftovers to me .
    Thanks,
    Russ
