  1. Man how we love out pets

    We have a 16 year old Dachshund that we have had since she was weened. She has never had any medical issues to speak of. I know its coming but I hate thinking of the day when she takes a nap and doesn't wake up. Its all part of life and living. Never forget all of the good times you had!
  2. It's snowing down in Dixie...

    OMG... Run to the store and buy all the Bread, Milk and Eggs you can put your hands on.... or that's what they say.
  3. Mercedes Street Rod

    Once saw pics of a 1:1 Model A with an engine out of a 240 Diesel. Had more power than the flathead 4. 😃
  4. Hurricane Irma

    storm over, beautiful sunny day (always is after a storm) now to spend most of the day getting the small limbs and spanish moss off the roof and out of the yard. Just another day in the low-country for me!
  5. Hurricane Irma

    So far its just a rainy and windy day here in Chas, SC as the outer bands move through. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if that's all we get..
  6. Hurricane Irma

    Don't forget Jose. they have him doing a 360 and coming after Irma. Time will tell.
  7. Hurricane Irma

    Isn't that the same place that went ape shxx when they had some snow a couple of years ago???

    Recommendation to all that moved to Florida but weren't raised there. I came up from Jax to SC averaged 50-60 mph. learn the back roads. i-95 and hwy17 are not the way out. Oh yeah, turn the GPS off and get a good map. all the GPS devices show the same routes and everyone is using them. spend a few minutes with a paper map and do some "flight planning".
  9. Thanks to Gegg for the heartwarming Editors Corner tribute to Harry P. and the inclusion in this edition of several articles He wrote or assisted with. I had not realized that he wrote a book until I read the article. I am ordering one right after I finish. Being relatively new to the modeling community (about 3 years after a long hiatus) I never had the honor to meet Harry P. in person. However I did have behind the scenes interaction with him on the forum. I can say that the talks showed me that he was very passionate when it came to the magazine, website and model building in general. I hope that in the future the magazine will be able to re-print any other articles or items he participated with. I do not have the full magazine history and I am sure there are plenty in the archives. I hope that for every Harry we lose there are many more that he has inspired that will continue on seeking the satisfaction of a great build and they will help keep this hobby alive. Thanks again Harry for everything you have done. I'm sure you are watching and making little comments as we build!
  10. 68 Mustang - a disappointment

    Looks a ton better than my 1968 1:1 looked when I was in high school!

    Or as some call me "Abby". You have to watch Mel Brooks "Young Frankenstein" and see how the brain was labeled.
  12. 200+ built ups moving out

    e-mail me where in Chas you live. We might be neighbors...
  13. Don Prudhomme Wedge Dragster

    In the last couple of issues Hot Rod did a great section on 1960/70's dragsters. It included a lot of sidewinders and some of the wedge cars. It is great reference material..

  15. The other interesting observation about the classic car market. When the stock market tanks the car prices are pushed up by speculators that try to make their ROI on cars. when the market is up the car prices go down as the speculators go back to it. Upside is that many cars that would have been scrapped were restored due to the perceived value when the last market crash happened.
