    You've raised the bar pretty high for future '70 Charger builds. Excellent paint work on both. Well done!

    Such a great, classic look to your Porsche cars. The paint colors and wheel treatments suit each one perfectly.

    This one, perhaps?

    Here's an Ebay listing for the wheels. A 100% feedback seller I have bought from. I like your Firebird project, I have a '91 Formula myself.

    Like it already. Maybe a nice Clearly Scale LS-series motor under the hood?

    If I do a Best Match sort for Hasegawa, the first listing is for the BMW 2002 Turbo. The seller, Tokyo-Hobby(one of the best) lists the kit at $22.50 plus $11.80 shipping.
    If I do a Newly Listed sort for the same term, the first BMW 2002 Turbo is listed at $67.65 plus $16.00 shipping. Yikes!

    Whoa, I missed a few updates... Your Ferrari is looking very good!
  13. Dodge Driver added a post in a topic Why not have a Hemi?   

    Thanks for the response. I know more now than I did prior to your answer. Even with the info posted here, road racing Hemis are an esoteric subject.

    A Tip For Ebay Buying
    When shopping for a specific model kit on Ebay, use the  sort option to organize your listings. I don't buy a kit without doing a price+shipping:lowest first sort.
    I've seen so many readily available kits listed at outlandish prices and unreasonable shipping costs. The overstated prices are most evident in the time:Newly Listed sort search as a BIN listing. Never jump on the first new listing you see. It pays to price shop before you buy. You can end up overpaying by many dollars if you buy on impulse.

  15. Dodge Driver added a post in a topic Why not have a Hemi?   

    Is there also an issue with high-rpm valve train binding/breakage concerning second-gen Hemis?
    Would valve train issues have hampered Can-Am racers of the day? I don't know the rules or technology in use at that time.
    Thanks for that combustion chamber design chart, also. For the first time, I can truly grasp the various designs. Burn rates and the timing advance required by each make perfect sense now.
