      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    Yes, but remember they were singing about street cars. Especially that little old lady's.
  2. Snake45 added a post in a topic '32 Chevy fenders   

    I built the delivery as a kid, and didn't like the holes in the fenders so I filled them with putty. Needless to say, THAT hasn't held up well over the years. I need to dig that hot mess out and restore/rebuild it someday. NO it is not for sale/trade/parts donations.

    Happy Ford/Chevy Day!
    Or, if you prefer, 4/27 can be called Chevy/Ford Day!

    Great sit! The front's not jacked up nosebleed high, like far too many seem to like to do it.

    Well you can't take Beach Boys lyrics TOO literally. After all, they sang about "Super Stock Dodges" in two different songs, when "Super Stock" was a Plymouth trademark. (The Dodge equivalent was Ram.)

    Happy Hemi/Mopar Day!
    We almost let 4/26 slip by without mention!
    Tomorrow, of course, will be Chevy/Ford Day!

    Don't forget the pink slip, daddy!
  8. Snake45 added a post in a topic "In Memoriam" community build for Harry   

    Yeah, but Harry, being Harry and a mod, could get away with calling us out on stuff that would have gotten us warnings if we'd done it to each other.
  9. Snake45 added a post in a topic The Javelin & Other AMC Muscle Cars   

    ATTN AMC Fans: The new (May) issue of Car Craft has a badass-looking restomod '70 Javelin feature car, followed by a restomod puke-green Gremlin! Must-have issue for AMC freaks.
  10. Snake45 added a post in a topic Johan 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado (glue bomb resto)   

    Nicely done! I have two of these needing resto (both AMT '68s, I think), so I know EXACTLY what you mean about the fragile, fidgety FWD parts. I feel your pain and salute your work on this one.
  11. Snake45 added a post in a topic Testor ModelMaster paint bottle lids   

    I've been fighting those lids for decades--probably 30% or more of every bottle I use--but hot water and bigass channel-lock pliers works almost 100% of the time. I've only broken one bottle (which fortunately was almost empty anyway), but I have mangled a couple lids so badly (after repeated plier-ings) that I had to swap them out with the lid from an empty bottle.
    The lids used to be steel, but I think they're aluminum or some softer metal now.
  12. Snake45 added a post in a topic Sources for 1/24 stretch-walls?   

    And I thought it was just me....
  13. Snake45 added a post in a topic "In Memoriam" community build for Harry   

    What's that whirring sound I hear? Sounds like it's coming from underground.
    But seriously, how about a build for Harry of black cars, to show our mourning? I just happen to be working on a black '71 Cuda right now, and it'll even have mirrors (just since the kit came with them).
  14. Snake45 added a post in a topic Moebius - Now that the Comet is out, What's Next   

    I saw a magnificent '69 GS convertible--light yellow--Sunday.
    The '68-'69 Skylarks are of no particular interest to me. I'd be all over a '64-'65, though, or a '67, or even a new-tool '66 (even though I have at least four restorable glue bombs in the Snakepit).
  15. Snake45 added a post in a topic JoHan Sox and Martin   

    Very nice, very clean build!
