  1. I built one of those when I was a kid. Wish I still had it. Also built the "Land of the Giants" rattlesnake. Wish I still had that one too!
  2. What do you drive?

    Thanks! I've had the TR for 30 years now. It was a rust bucket when I got it and not much worked electrically. Lots of my time and $ went into making it the way you see it now! I saw your earlier post on your R.....nice car! Ididn't know the R's were all wheel drive? Did you mainly experience front wheel spin on the GTI in the snow or on wet roads? I've only experienced it a couple times on dry roads and that's only when I "get into it" hard.
  3. 1/24 Mclaren M6A Fisher resin

    Very cool! I'll be building the Tamiya 1/18 M8A sometime next year. Thanks for sharing.
  4. What do you drive?

    My daily driver, a 2015 VW GTI and my weekend fun car a 1972 Triumph TR6 that I restored over a 5 year period from 2005 to 2009.
  5. What did you see on the road today?

    Saw these yesterday at a British car show I attended in Louisville KY. (oops, looks like I sneaked in a 1:25 version in there too. )
  6. 3D Printed wheel from HRE

    Yeah I wouldn't want to hit a pothole with one of those. Or try to wash them!
  7. Mayflower Moving Van Trailer

    Turned out OK? I think it turned out great! I too would like to know how you straightened the warped trailer parts.
  8. Techno Bubble 41 Willys Bonneville car

    That's freakin' cool!
  9. Very nice-beautiful paint! Would love to see some underside pics.
  10. B.R.B.O. Peterbilt 352

    Hi Jeff, I PM'd you some pics of how my rear axles and brakes went together. But here they are again. Let me know if you need any other pics.
  11. This looks like a very accurate reproduction of the 1:1 car. (Although I've only seen it in pictures.) About 16-17 years ago the company I work for acquired Paxton Products from the Granatelli's in Camarillo, CA, the industrial division of Paxton superchargers. I met Vince Granatelli several times and he gave me and several others these signed photos. (Along with lots of STP stickers and magnets.) The building had an engine test room in it at time with an engine, although I cannot say what kind of engine it was. I wish I took some photos but I didn't. I recall that there were dozens of cases of old STP cans stored up high in the mezanine of the building. Wish I had kept some. Nice diecast and decals!
  12. Building two '65s: one for each of my younger brothers. They both bought used 1:1s back when they were in their early 20s. I'm building these AMT 1/16 scale kits so they emulate their 1:1 cars. Yes there are a lot of inaccuracies with this kit but I'm pretty much building them box stock, except I'll be building them with vinyl roofs.
  13. 1974 MG-B

    Nice build and nice color! Tahiti blue is a factory Triumph TR6 color. I used to own a Tahiti blue TR6. Funny story about the color...one day while driving the car through a local park a guy driving in the opposite direction sticks his arm out waving for me to stop, which I did. He asks me what kind of car is it so I answer "it's a 1976 Triumph TR6" Then he asks 'what is that color!?" I answer "tahiti blue". He apparently misunderstood me and said back: "titty blue!?". Well me and my friends still call that car the "the titty blue TR6" !
  14. Triumph TR4A, Airfix, 1/32

    Nice that the surrey top came with the soft and hard top options. Nice color choice too-Wedgewood blue?
  15. ‘70 Torino GT

    Nice! Love those old Torinos!
