  1. Well Loved GT Ford

    I have an LS GT40 body but never understood the long head lamp buckets.
  2. 63 Corvette mild custom

    Nice looking models on my favorite Corvette body style.
  3. Racing, Hot Rod, truck and aircraft engines by FTB

    Very appropriate with today being the Indy 500.
  4. Parts help question.

    Geno, You might want to check out the NAPA catalog and copy a picture of the fan then reduce it in size and mount the picture within an outer ring and a back. Might be worth a try.

  13. What diecast did you get today?

    This is a big block 1965 Corvette I have been chasing for a while. I first saw it on Irish eBay but it had been sold. Then I saw it advertised by an antique shop in New England and ordered it only to have my payment refunded because they did not have it in stock. Finally I found this Crown Premium 1/24 Limited Edition diecast in Canada and it compares favorably with the Danbury Mint release but at a fourth of the price ($38). The working features are pretty impressiive including the working drive shaft, headlamps open, steering wheel turns with the front wheels, seat backs tilt forward, top lid opens, gas cap opens, working suspension, and working antenna. The down sides for me is the advertising (NAPA, Heat Craft, Conoco) tampo printed on the doors but it was easily removed with non-acetone finger nail polish remover. Other issues are the Fuel Injection badges when they should be a big block 396, the location of the driver side rear view mirror is too low on the door and the inner tail lights should be clear. Over all I think it is good value for the money.

    Thanks for sharing your photos and the link. I dread the day I will have to move and make decisions about my collections.
