  1. 😎😎😎 JAMES, Have the front rims if you still need them.. Have the new kit to build, but will have "budd" style rims on mine... Let me know. DJ
  2. 😎😎😎 I was saddened to hear about Dave's death, and must admit, a bit apprehensive about "new owners" of his business, was relieved after talking to Doug Wagner..... Just received my first order from Doug today, order was PROMPT, and Doug shows to be the same caliber of businessman as was Dave. Feel quite comfortable recommending him and his company to anyone. THANKS for everything Doug DJ
  3. 😎😎😎 Price hikes don't surprise me.... Gas prices since 2020 went from 1.49 gallon to over 4.00 per gallon, price of EVERYTHING is gonna go up...; DJ
  4. At first, I thought you were gonna say you moved next door!!!! Same thing here... NO hobby shop, closest at Somerset (42 miles east) to Hobby Lobby, 48 miles to Burnside to a LHS (that is open about half the time I get over there), 65 miles north for another HL, 68 miles west to HL or Hobbytown.... With gas right at $4 a gallon, and 16 miles per gallon, I was HAPPY to see our local Wally-World bring in some kits. Sometimes location & circumstances alter our attitudes... DJ
  5. 😎😎😎 Let us know when you're ready to put them on the market. THANKS DJ
  6. 😎😎😎 I, like a bunch of us, would LOVE to see lots of the old Johan kits' "come back out", and maybe this is a precursor to the release of a 56 Pontiac, but if it isn't, then where would the interior do any of us much good???? Been to a LOT of model shows over the years, with hundreds of vendors, and think MAYBE, have seen one old warped promo for sale.... DJ
  7. 😎😎😎 Ricky, Just picked up three of these kits, let me know if you still need those decals. DJ

    Door handles

    😎😎😎 STEVE stuff went out in the mail today DJ
  9. Same thing here.... two kits, both had the right frame and the drag-link goobered up... Quick call to Atlantis, Rick grabbed new frame rails and drag-links for both kits, and put them in the mail!!! "Woopsies" happen with ANY company, but their SUPER PROMPT handling of the problem was not only impressive, but most welcome!!! Will definately buy their products in the future!!! DJ
  10. Sad to hear.... Every dealing with Dave was 100% straight forward, one of the most honest and prompt people I've run across on the "web".... Also, his products were always TOP notch. Was always super pleasant on the phone too. Will definately be missed! DJ

    Door handles

    😎😎😎 Got them both if you need them. DJ

    Door handles

    😎😎😎 Steve, Have a Revell Willys Pickup that am "scrapping out" that should have what you need, will check after Church.... Yours if I got em. DJ
  13. 😎😎😎 James, Have LOTS of the "Dayton style" rims, will gladly trade set-for-set for the "Budd style" rims. PM me if interested.. DJ
  14. X2 Right out of the late 50's/early 60's DJ
  15. 😎😎😎 Welcome back to the "plastic world" GARY!!!! Recently moved from East Texas (Longview) to Ky, and one of the best shows within "sensible" driving distance was the Dallas show. Lotsa friendly competitors, vendors, and usually covered by the national magazines.. To find out a bunch of the particulars, when you first open up onto the forum, there is a list of "upcoming shows" on the right hand side. Click on the METROPLEX CAR MODELERS SHOWDOWN 2022 (It is on March 5th). Know that is a pretty good haul for you, but well worth the drive. DJ
  16. 😎😎😎 Those stands were in the AMT 32 Fords, 34 Ford Pickups, 36 Fords, 39/40 Ford Sedans, and 40 Fords. As was mentioned, they were made with "universal" type mounts, that way you could interchange the Small Block Chevy from the 32 Ford Coupe, the Chrysler Hemi from the 32 Ford Roadster, the MEL engine from the 32 Victoria, the Tri-power FE Ford engine from the 34 Ford pickup, the Pontiac engine from the 36 Ford, the Olds engine from the 39/40 Ford sedan, and the Nailhead Buick from the 40 Ford Coupe. Any of these kits should still have them in the kit. May have a few "spares" if you need... Hope this helps DJ
  17. 😎😎😎 GREAT JOB replicating a very complex old racecar!!!! Awesome detailing too!!! DJ
  18. 😎😎😎 Like what you are doing here... Can't tell you how many 1:1 cars we put 48-57 Chevy Pickup "straight axles" up under, and also the 53-56 Ford Pickup axles.... (Poor boy straight axles) Keep us posted on the progress!!! DJ ps= whatcha gonna use for engine/trans???
  19. 😎😎😎 AWESOME JOB!!! The real car was always one of my favorites, you have certainly done it justice!!! DJ
  20. 😎😎😎 RICKY, Don't know if you are still hunting this, but was going thru the "CAR decal " plastic tote, and found two of these, if you still need, give a hollar... DJ
  21. 😎😎😎 Already got a couple of these, and a couple of the dragsters on "pre-order", will look GOOD sitting beside some of the AMT Double Dragster builds!!! DJ
  22. 😎😎😎 Just want to say a special THANK YOU to all who helped out... The tires we rounded up will allow several builds of vehicles from back in the 60's of cars/pickups that friends had and some of my old toys from "the good old days". Just gotta get where I can post pictures.... Thanks again DJ
  23. 😎😎😎 CASEY is another person that you need never worry about, GREAT GUY!!! DJ
  24. 😎😎😎 CASEY Got the box today, THANKS!!!! DJ
