  1. Indeed! And today I believe an AC Ace-Bristol is worth more than an ACE with the AC engine.
  2. The car from which the Cobra sprang, the AC ACE, ran in one form or another, an inline 6. Ones from AC, Bristol, or Ford. So building one with a different inline 6 is just historically correct!
  3. Beautiful paint work! The interior looks great - back in the day something like this, if it was going to be on the show circuit, might have had white pearl tuck-and-roll with maybe some purple metalflake naugahyde trim to boot! Love your interior treatment!
  4. Tim - as someone who hasn't built a model car in 50 years and who back in the day saw many of the 1:1 cars that are being modeled today, I stand in absolute awe of your abilities. The details and realism of your work is totally and truly otherworldly. If I saw the images here anywhere else I would believe they were full scale pieces being built for a future award winning show car. I cannot wait to see your work as it continues to the revealing of your completed model. Which I'm sure will set the bar for any future efforts by the rest of the universe. Congratulations and best wishes.
  5. My 9 Models for 2017

    That's the place! My dad used to take me there to see the new models every September. There was a chain link fenced in area in the back where you could sometimes see the new cars a few days before they officially came out. But of course that was back when the new models were really something and announcement day meant something. Not like today. I drooled over many a car in that showroom. And drove by it more times than I can remember. Thanks for the photo - bring back loads of memories as my dad died not quite a year ago....
  6. My 9 Models for 2017

    What prompted the Bob Peck Chevrolet reference on the Nova? Hadn't heard of that dealer for quite a while. It was a dealer at the corner of Wilson Blvd and Glebe Road in Arlington, VA (my home town) in the 1960's - 1970's. Nice work - great models.
  7. Opel GT, 1/25, AMT (Round2)

    I had a 1:1 of this - 1970 version and in this color! Mine had alloy slotted wheels. It was a great car to drive, very well balanced as it was a true front mid-engined design. The engine was behind the front axle and the fuel tank was in front of the rear axle and it was fun on the street as the engine revved freely and you could flog it through the gears without getting into trouble. Handling was very nice. Nice job on your model - brings back great memories! Congrats and thanks for sharing!
