I've only bought the Revell 48 Ford in the last few years. I have over 600 kits , more than I can ever build.I've finally broken the cycle of just purchasing more because I can! Those prices are WAY too high! Time to stop buying and start building! To each their own.
I have downloaded almost all my pics from Photobucket. Just under 10,000. This ridiculous 400 dollar fee for third party hosting seems like it might be desperation to save a sinking site.Just guessing.They constant STUPID ads and links, plus the slow or NO service in general is not worth 4 dollars, let alone 400! It took me weeks to download all my stuff, mostly because the site kept failing, IF you haven't downloaded, you really need to! Don't be surprised to see it just vanish soon! Oh, and GOOD LUCK trying to attach your downloaded images, even though they are jpegs, PB has made it nearly impossible. PB SUCKS, get your stuff off today and give 'em a one finger salute!!!
I have several AMT Annual 66 bodies but no interiors , I owned a nice 66 in my youth, I know the real cars were different, but I don't think the AMT interiors were.I also built each model year , but that was over 50 years ago! I know there are resin examples, but I'd just rather have the originals. The "Hemi Under Glass" kits can supply the glass, bumpers etc. I'm not going to use the screw chassis though, it is just way too inaccurate! Just giving it a shot. My unused HUG bodies with the radiused wheel wells will become funny cars. THANKS for the replies!
All sanctioning bodies required funny car bodies to be American production cars, no Jeeps or pickups allowed. This was NHRA, AHRA, UDRA, all of them. Could strips run exceptions? To an extent, if it didn't invalidate their insurance or expose them to liability. Stretch the rules (in local competition), sure. There was a period when "roadsters",Jeeps, Jaguars and Bronco's were legal. By 1969 when the FC funny car class was established, none of those were allowed. By definition anything that wasn't class legal was an exhibition car. Can't think of anything in scale that hasn't been mentioned here!
S/XS through C/XS were classes for FUNNY CARS, nothing else from 1966 to 1969 when they were reclassified as FUNNY CARS! You got it all wrong.They ran in nHRA Super Eliminator if blown, Competition Eliminator if injected. They OF COURSE ran match races as well.
Sigh.It raced, lot's of exhibition cars did.In match races.It did not qualify as a funny car in NHRA, AHRA, NASCAR, UDRA or anything else.Did it race funny cars? YES> It still was an exhibition car. CLEARLY you do not understand what an exhibition car was.Jets also ran dragsters, funny cars, even a go kart.They were exhibition cars. Ask Walt what class he ran. He'll be honest, NO CLASS.Match racing sure.
Uh,no.Simply no. It didn't fit funny car rules, was NOt a copy of a real production car. And it was too short and not legal as as an AA'FD. It was a match racer, that's all.In that sense it was an exhibition car.ANY car that did not fit an NHRA class was an exhibition car by definition.
