    And they are getting ready to repave a large portion of them after 20 years and of course, they are using federal road funds to do so because the tolls collected only cover "maintenance and operating costs", not actual construction.
    I remember when the board of directors for the tollway got caught ordering $2,500 chairs for their new boardroom and it was uncovered that they hardly ever used the boardroom! They also had a couple of expensive helicopters to use for observation purposes and I think a couple of directors got caught using them for "taxi" service so the wouldn't have to get stuck in traffic on the tollways! Only in Illinois, where more ex-governors are also ex-prisoners!

    I am watching this one too, which resin supplier is the body from? I have one from Bandit Resins, been thinking about what could be.

    Well, the thing I learned about this whole Cecil the Lion situation is that I should have gone to dental school! If the good Dr. was able to pay $50,000 for a license and probably another $5-10,000 in expenses to go to Africa to hunt, then obviously he is doing pretty good filling cavities!
    While the killing of a Lion is newsworthy, I do find it interesting what some networks are doing as far as coverage on all events of the past couple of days.

    My thoughts as well.
     
    Nice job on that conversion, I was digging through my spares box last night getting the parts together to do the same!

    In the past when I printed coupons, if I walked the aisle and didn't find something I needed/wanted, I would hand the coupon to another shopper.
     Today I mention to others to use their smartphone for the 40% off coupon.

    Is there a model club or swap meet coming up? I once sold a bunch of old enamel sprays at a swap meet because of the same reason as you. A model club might have members who would purchase them cheaply.

    For custom outlaw and cowl hoods, check out www.lexsscalemodeling1.bravehost.com
     
    I saw many different types of hoods on his site. He also sells on eBay under seller ID 67impala427.
     
    There was a cowl and outlaw hood listed for the 70 Camaro.

    That one is usually referred to as a L-88 style hood. I don't recall the second generation Camaro's having a cowl induction hood like the first generation models. I have seen some in resin, will have to dig through my resources to see if I can find who was casting them.

    For me it was the door gaps and the outside mirror, just didn't look real enough to me.

    The old adage is true- Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!

    I remember Bob Downie (ZoomZoom) created a model using a late model Mustang, Challenger and Camaro and it came out much nicer than this thing!

    Don't worry, I am sure the government has all of our information already on a secure server with a back up cloud!

    Looks great, I might have to pickup (pun intended!) one of the AMT trucks for this exact purpose!
