    Tri-Power carbs ? Reverse Wheels
    Looking for some chrome reverse wheels with center bullets or center sections with bullets. I thought I had seen some center section bullets someplace but can't find them now. I have a set of wheels but they are in the Ala Kart kit and I don't want to rob any parts from it 
     

     
    Also looking for some detailed tri-power carbs for a 390

    Die Cast paint chipping ?
    Picked  a few ERTLE Die Cast bank kits at a swap meet, Looks like they were painted and then stripped, (maybe even powder coated?) In repainting for a couple easy projects to build with my Grandsons I noticed the paint chipped off fairly easy I was wondering if I need some type of self-etching primer. Any tips? Thanks

    Be thankful that they chose the term "Pony car" from the Mustang. If they were to be accurate the Barracuda is the first actual "pony" car and they should be called the "fish car"

    Muscle Car: big block V8 intermediate size car
    Pony Car : small block V8 (then) compact car
    Tuner: Little cars with "fart pipes

    There are two kinds of engines (not motors, motors are electric) Engines that are Hemis and engines that want to be Hemis

    Agreed , I seemed to get these mixed up with "side pipes" (as did others).

    OK OK , now should we define "lakes pipes" ? (I think we have been down this road before LOL)

    I was thinking all out top end not 1/4 mile. Couldn't you gear it for a 140 top end without the supercharger ? A supercharger on a Flattie in the era just doesn't seem right to me
  12. Jon Haigwood added a post in a topic Let's build a " Little Duece Coupe"   

    OK OK. It sounds to me that building a "Li Deuce Coupe" would be a conundrum to do. you might just call it a "Unicorn Build"

    Did I miss AMC day ?

    In the Lil Old Lady song it said "There's a brand new shiny super stocked Dodge." Indicating to me that hat it had the "Super Stock" racing options.
    Not sure about "Shut Down""superstock Dart winding out in low"

    I don't see it happening today but in the big box stores when someone would open up a kit and leave it on the shelf the were instructed to toss it in the dumpster since it was cheaper then sending it back. I never could find out when K Mart dumped their kits so I could retrieve some.
