    That's funny. The drag version is the only reason I would buy that kit.
    If I had that kind of money that is. It would be a fun kit to build.

    Thanks guys.
    As I am just a kit builder  I probably won't attempt my own. Was hoping there was one out there but I won't lose any sleep at night over it.

    I picked up the AMT '57 Ford Hardtop today at Hobby Lobby.
    I was thinking about the 57 Chevy Black Widow, but all the kits they had seemed to have damaged boxes, like maybe they were packed wrong. Plus for some reason I was thinking I wanted to build something for the next Moonlight Modellers club meeting which is 40's and 50's Fords and Mopars. Probably won't build it in time, but I've been wanting it anyway. I am a fool for all the old AMT reissues.

    Apparently Pep Boys doesn't accept the Pep Boys credit card online.
    At least that is the message I just got trying to buy tires online for installation later today. " We do not accept this card type".
    Doing it online since they have a 30% off deal if you buy online.
    Now I have to wait up for another hour to call their customer service and see what is up.
    Having to shop at one place because you only have their credit card bites. I could afford to pay cash in another week or two, but one of these tires probably won't last that long and the car is an all wheel drive, so it is 4 tires or none. The others are due to be replaced anyway.

    65 Bonneville Wagon?
    I just saw that TM Resin has a 66 Bonneville wagon. Does he or anyone else make a 65 Wagon?
    We drove cross country from Ohio to Phoenix in 1969  in one when we moved here. I was 10.  Would be fun to build one.

    Went to HL (75th and Bell ) today to see what they had in clearance given all the other's who have found some good kits.
    Not so lucky here. Seems that the clearance model kits go quick here.I see more when they are on the first price drop that matches the coupon, but hardly ever see any at a lower price later on. 
    Only had two different kits, one had several copies left and the other just the one  I bought. I REALLY wanted to buy something on clearance. I had hoped to find the 65 Grand Prix. But nope.
    Revell 37 Ford Coupe Street Rod (only one) and the MPC Fuzzduster. That one they had a few left. I really didn't want either one, but at $8.99 for the Ford and $10.79 for the FD I figured why not. I had $20 burning a hole in my pocket for models. Will I ever build them is another question. Might be good for parts or just for those times when I want to build but don't care about mistakes.
    This store did have a couple of Tamiya tanks (about $18), some brand of helicopter and a couple of Star Trek (but not the Enterprise) kits.
    They also had a railroad track set I would love to have gotten for about$65 (down from $180), but didn't have that kind of money and don't have a place to set one up anyway.
    I noticed a few new kits in the model aisle, like the Coke T (proper name is?), the 57 Black Widow, Prudomme dragster, and a few others. Wanted these, but decided to get two kits for the price of one with a coupon since the clearance kits won't be there next week, but these new ones should still be around for a while.

    I'd love to get one or three. Will have to check out their website.
    Yes, I'm one of those old people. 😛

    KIA also means Killed In Action. I think that was his point.
