  1. sure didn't need it, but I picked up an old issue of the AMT 72 Nova. I always liked the "Old Pro" box art, and I found a decent deal on the auction site.
  2. That's entirely likely. My dad purchased it from a Dr. who really didn't know much about it. Dad shaved all the emblems and painted it Ford Wimbledon White, so factory-stock issues are out the window already. 🤣
  3. got a couple, for sure. One is a replica of the '69 Camaro my dad sold when I was about 5 years old. He still feels remorseful when I mention that it was my birthright. 🤣 I've got the kit and most of the necessary parts to build it as accurately as we can remember it. 350, 2 bbl, TH350, flat hood. I need to configure some header mufflers and straight pipes, and build the BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH thing. Similarly, I've got everything I need to build a replica of my former '69 Corvette coupe. 350, TH400, small block hood. Now that I think of it, I've also got an '84 Cutlass, with a flat hood, earmarked to be a replica of my first car, and a Dobbertin J2000 to donate it's front clip towards a replica of my unfortunate second car.
  4. eager to see this one. Reminds me I need to finish my own tiger build
  5. very nice - the "Hemisfair" plates always strike a chord for me, because it was in San Antonio. A little before my time, but I still like the connection. I bought a bunch of texas plates for future builds from 67-72. I need to find a good '68 project so I can use that tag. Nice touch with the inspection sticker. But I'm not surprised you got that detail too!
  6. just going back and looking at the pics, I'm a little disappointed that I didn't notice the Texas plates before!
  7. just beautiful. fantastic work!
  8. yeah I found both of mine on ebay. The first one was expensive but less than I'd seen in a while. the second one was not too crazy of a price, and I was familiar with the seller. I'm going to sell the one I have that is sealed, and go ahead and build the opened one.
  9. my dad explained that this morning. "when one person sneezes, 100 people s**t!"
  10. I could swear I've posted in this thread but I couldn't find it. Regardless, I'd say the Jo-Han Pro Stock Maverick is my holy grail, but I have two of them now, and there's a couple of people with WIPs of the kit in the Drag Racing section. Guess it's not *that* rare.
  11. Picked up another of the JoHan Maverick. This one is open but complete. Probably going to build this one and sell the sealed one I have.
  12. right. I understood the question to be whether kits had been issued with the show/movie tie-in on the box. I wasn't aware of the CHiPs kit, but like the Rockford Firebird, you could use almost any 70s Firebird/Trans Am as the basis for either tv car since they varied so much over the course of the series.
  13. Rockford's firebird. Poncharello's Trans Am
  14. gonna need this one then. I have a 1:1 Westinghouse cooler in my backyard. I guess I could build a model of my friend's ranchero with the kit.
  15. I could be wrong (it's happened before) but I think it would be an inline-6. The 300 was 4.9 liters, and I believe the only other displacement for the truck 6 was 240, but that would be less than the 4.6L you mentioned, and I believe it was out of production by 1977 also. If the inline is correct, the 6 from the Moebius F-150s would be a good start.
