I found this forum after checking out what was available on the website.
I am a retired, 70 y/o retail sales manager. Ex drag racer, ('60's), and model-maker although the last one was about 55 years ago.
My original plan was to build pre-war cars such as the Toyoda AA. I love that style vehicle. While researching though, I realized that most all the cars I ever owned were classics and research would not be needed. They were my cars! Since I grew up at the start of the muscle car era, and starting my 1st job to pay for a '69 Nova, a 396ci / 375hp, I think I'm ready.
Altough, technically, I had a '59 Corvette 283ci / 270hp before that so, my plan is to start there.
I hoping to learn a lot about detailing and painting here since the last model car I built was in the 50's. Hope is the wrong term. I know I will learn.
