MCM Avid Poster

MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Some on the road shots. Rough '57 Chevy HT and a '56 Chev and '68 or 69 El Camino on a transporter. I'd be pissed if my El Camino was hauled like that!
  2. Shouldn't these be in the car show photo section? Just curious.
  3. Wonderful set of photos! In the late 90s I was in the heavy truck export business and spent A LOT of time in Miami. Your photos are exactly how I remember it. Now it's so overbuilt, it doesn't look like the same place! Thanks for posting these!
  4. Like you, I like the Corvair over the Nomad. I didn't know Johhny Lightning did the Motorama cars in 1/64. I need to hunt those down!
  5. I think the docent was misinformed. If these in fact are truly original it would be headline news. I've been messing with C1 Corvettes for 25+ years and have never seen any proof the original cars survive. I'm familiar with Joe Bortz and his collection of show cars. Met him at Amelia Island one year. Nice guy! You can build your own Corvair starting with a body. https://backtothefutureproductsllc.com/53-55.shtml
  6. I'd like to see what documentation the museum has that says both of these cars are original. It's pretty well known in C1 Corvette circles that both of these cars were destroyed after the Motorama days. There have been several replicas of each car built over the years. This replica Corvair was for sale a couple years ago for $250K.
  7. I try not to complain much, but that unveiling video was actually painful to watch. Low resolution, poor lighting, it reminded me of a Dr. Steve Brule episode. Aside from the garbage truck, everything else was pretty much public knowledge. A disappointment.
  8. I'm down for one and hopefully they make a Scenicruiser to go with it!
  9. I'd love to see a reissue of the '62 Ford Galaxie convertible as it's one of my holy grail kits. Not sure what the status of the molds are, maybe I wasn't looking in the right place when I did a search. Add the 1960 Ford Pickup to that list too. And pretty much any Ford product of the 50s & 60s that hasn't been reissued in ages.
  10. Spotted this Fairlane dressed up as a Torino Cobra on I-75 earlier today.
  11. I wouldn't do a thing to that Model A except wash it and give it the Gibbs Oil treatment. Looks like a decent original car. Slant Windshield Fordors have the advantage of much less body wood than the earlier Fordors. Any other photos of this car?
  12. Here's a shot I snagged from Cult TV Man's Facebook page showing the ramp truck in the background.
  13. Primus is one of the few bands I've wanted to see live but never had the chance. I REALLY wanted to see them when they toured with Tool in 2016. That would've been an awesome show.
  14. It'd be interesting to see if this trend continues of less kits and more die cast & sci-fi.
  15. Excellent set of pics! That '56 Desoto wagon is cool, great color combination. Nice to see another Nikon shooter!
