The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
The show and contest were a few weeks ago but I finally have the time to post some pictures from the show. The show went really well with a good crowd through all day, we had about 198 models in the contest and almost 300 people through the doors! Here are some pics of the vendors and contest tables. I am going to send the photos of the individual models into the magazines then I may post some more here!
I had not checked this post for awhile, thanks for posting the pictures of your drawings and the concept drawings! I really like the 66/67 Nova conversion, I think that could be done in model form using a Flintstone sedan delivery maybe?
I fanally got some paint on this! The interior is just about finished. I need to get some clear on it and polishing to get the shine up! What do you guys think of the color combo? I wanted something that looked like it was done in the late 60's. Does anyone know of a source for outside door handles without buying another kit? If all else fails I guess I could try and cast some up.
The deadline for entering the contest is 12:00. The announcing should start around 2:00 or 2:30 and the show is over at 3:00! The tables are almost sold out so we should have lots of stuff to look at and buy!! I will be posting some photos after the show also. Hope to see you there! Phil
Love the old Aurora stuff! Always looking for cars! I did some work on my El Camino project, I rescribed the door lines and fitted a back window. I used the Molotow chrome pen to re-do the front end chrome. I am going to paint the grille stainless with a black wash, I used the pen on the bumper and the upper grille surround and around the headlights. Not sure if I should drill out the lights and replace with clear lenses, would rather try and "clear" over them. Any ideas? Also its amazing how a close up photo with a phone camera makes by body work look like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH!

Here is a copy of the show flyer for 2017 showing our classes and our special theme class "IMPORTS". This could be anything from a tuner to factory stockto a drag car as long as its an import. This would include British, European, Japanese Etc.....
