  1. It seems as we all get older, we get pickier about everything. I grew up buiding kits with metal axles. they were cool, once you built the car you could actual roll them around. BTW, did you every look at the carbs on the MPC prostock kits? They were pretty bad compared to todays kits. But, for the 1970's I guess they were the best MPC could do. And have you seen how much mint old mpc prostock kits go for?
  2. good show. will post some of my buys later.
  3. Hey bill, is gary t going to make it back for the show?
  4. your right, the chassis were pretty crude/simple. but, I contend johan's hemis were the best(stock and racing versions)!
  5. just found out my buddy I was going with got hung up out in new york state and will not be back in time to make the trip. pretty bummed out as I was looking forward to meeting some guys from the fourm. maybe next year.
  6. not sure where our tables are at Indy, think they will be against a wall. At kirkwood, I will be in my same spot back in the corner by the contest reg. table. come by and say HI. Will be wearing a red "MOPAR" hat.
  7. Two good model car swapmeets and contests this weekend. I'll be at both.
  8. SUPER PLACE! No worries! also,check out amazon.com, sometimes they have the same parts with free shipping. Yes, I was supprised to find out that amazon.com sells car parts.
  9. try to locate glass for a old 63 imperial hardtop. the person who I got the car from has lots of glass, but doesn't know what the glass looks like. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks! steve
  10. $6.19 for a 3 oz cans figures out to be $263.00($2.06 x 128oz) a gallon. Still less than printer ink(lol). Do you think all the EPA regs. has anything to do with it?

  12. me a buddy of mine will be there vending our stuff. come by and say hi. steve
  13. but, errors in a contract are handled in civil court, not in criminal setting. the buyer just hit the jackpot.
  14. You don't have the buyer arrested, you repo the car. This dealer is being sued and the police dept maybe next. Don't see any probable cause for the arrest. the purchase of a vehicle is a civil legal matter. Unless the guy bought it with counterfit money.
  15. when I buy a convt from a ebay auction or from a indv seller I always contact them and tell them how fragile these cars are and I request them to pack them very careful. this usually works as they don't want a damage claim throught ebay or paypal.
  16. Hi, I'm amazed what little care some of our fellow modelers take when shipping items they are trading. I always pack fragile cars/trucks to protect them from being crushed during shipping. Just use common sense and use a box at least 2 inches larger than the item you are shipping. thanks,Steve
