  1. Thanks, Charles, that makes perfect sense, now I finally understand, it just seemed to me a rather dangerous prospect to have an open cab...... I get it now... I have a good buddy who is a firefighter in Calgary Alberta, and he said he used to ride in the open back of a Ford C cab, in winter he said it was BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH cold ! Again sorry for any highjack, this is all very interesting............. Thanks again, I will now go back to my seat and watch quietly... Jeff
  2. That Olds is a stunner !!!
  3. OK, I have to ask................. maybe someone can shed some light on this for me, first off the master for this truck is awesome, but my question is................ why did they build some of these trucks with NO ROOF???? It seems to me that every fire truck I have seen is spotlessly clean, I would think a fire truck with no roof, would be inherently dangerous ( falling debris) and the fact it would get SO dirty............... what was the theory behind the no roof deal?? I have asked fire fighters that I know and not one can tell me why this was.... don't meant o hijack your thread, but as there is a photo on this page, I thought maybe one of you guys may know..... Jeff
  4. To my old weak eye, it is the roof line that nails this conversion...... before you finish the build, you should resin cast a few of these just for giggles...... 😉
  5. Really cool, love the attention to detail, especially the 'horn ring'...... loving this, Bill.... Jeff
  6. Wow, that is really coming along nicely ! I love this..... watching with great interest.... Jeff
  7. Yes, RCMP, had 4 doors, my brother in law, said the best Highway Patrol car he ever has was a 73 Impala with the 454, went like stink, and held the road beautifully... he absolutely loved that ride............ today's best ride, according to my two buddies here, and my nephew, is the Chevy Tahoe............. . I wish the RCMP decals were 'allowed' to be printed, but as usual due to 'copy right' stuff, they can't be readily printed for us guys, and guess who holds the 'copyrights' to the crest?.................................... nope not the Canadian Federal Government............... but ........... Disney............... go figure that one... I can't..... watching with great interest....
  8. Cool truck..... and a very nice job well done...
  9. Yeah, the Watermark deals, I do have a set of them in my collection as well, very well done, wish they would come back.... I will be following with great interest...
  10. Wow, NICE job, looks every bit a '57 !
  11. I drove gravel trucks for 38 years and this is SPOT ON!! Extremely well done ! Jeff
  12. I have never had the model, and like others missed it on it's first go around, but will get one or two on this round................ yes there should be a "live hydraulic" pump on the front of the truck, usually mounted to a bracket that would extend the front bumper, it operates the drum and dis-charge chute......... so short answer is yes there is or should be...
  13. This is a fabulous build.................. Mark Worman would be proud !
