    Thanks Erik. They sure look pretty close, missing the rivet detail around the rim and the centers are not recessed like the ones in my pics but again, pretty close. I'd LOVE to have a set of those. They'd be just the thing for a retro '80s pro-touring build.

    I agree, they should fit right in.
  3. What did you get today?

  4. GM and Chevy Quality

    My boss loved his GMC Safari vans. Last one we had in the company was one he bought new before I started working for him on 2000. He passed it down to one of the workers 6 or 7 years ago. By the time we got rid of it, it had almost 500,000 KM on it. [right around 300,000 miles] It probably would have went another couple years but the guy that had it drove it into the ground. No maintenance except oil changes and whatever the bare minimum was to go through inspection for as long as he used it. I don't even remember him ever cleaning it. My '99 Saturn had over 350K on it before it died. But I don't believe there are any really "bad" car makers anymore but every one has built thier share of bad cars. If someone has a good car, you never hear about it but if the car won't start ,, just once ,, everyone on facebook knows about it and then every car that company makes is junk.

    Ok. I checked e-bay too and found one with a bit bigger pic of the chrome tree. The wheels look like Jongbloed Series 214 from what I can see. Those are some serious racing wheels. One of the first aftermarket wheels available in + sizes for bigger tires and used on some of the more serious early pro-touring cars back in the early '80s before "pro-touring" was even a word.

    Casey, could you please post a closeup of those 6 spoke wheels? I think I know what they might be.
  7. Testors Hugger Orange looks pretty close to me. I'm doing a Datsun pickup in it right now.
  8. New wheel from Platz

    So ,, re-boxed Pegasus Sovereign.
  9. New kid on the block ?

    OK, I don't know much about Nascar , I take it this body style was ran for a few years then? It says in the press release above that it's a '78 and that they intend to also do Petty's '79 and Baker's '80 ,, the kit's a '76 though. Anyway, I'll leave mine you those of you who like that sort of thing. Now if it had of been a '76 or '77 street car I'd be in for a couple. But,,,

    You are quite right Matthew , in spite of me double and triple checking my post I still got it backwards. LOL Here's a link to one of the best second gen T/A sites I've found. http://tran-zam.com/index.html

    Casey, the diamond shaped mesh in the grille make the kit a '77. '78s had honeycomb shaped mesh in the grille. The 5 color bird was for the '78 solar gold Special Edition [check the side of your box] and was only available on that specific gold car until it became the standard bird design the next year.

    The gallon of Honda Dyno blue pearl I bought to paint my T/A last summer was almost twice that. , , Over twice when you count in a gallon of reducer.
  14. Testors has a darker red in thier bottle paints that seems pretty close to me. I think it's #1104. At least that's what the unfaded areas on the valve covers of my '68 Electra look like.
