    My first car was a champange gold 1969 Mustang GT with a 351 Windsor engine with a 4 on the floor and a black interior. Great first car. Bought it for $3,500 in 1970 and sold it for $3,800 in 1972 before going to Germany for a year. Bought an old 1960 VW beetle in Germany to bomb around Europe - lots of fun.

    I did manage to visit D & J Hobbies in Campbell when I was in the San Jose area last week. Good hobby shop with lots to see and buy. Thanks for the good shopping advice.

    Brian, thanks for the bad news about San Antonio hobbies. Seems like it is hard for hobby shops to stay in business these days.

    Hobby Shops in San Jose and San Francisco area
    I will be visiting the Bay area next week and would like to know if there are any hobby shops in the area that I should visit. I am especially interested in plastic model cars and 1/32 scale slot cars. Advice about good hobby shops to visit will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Mike for your reply about the 1/6 motor and transmission. Yes, it will be too big for a 1/8 Big T but it may make a good cartoon car. We'll see if I ever get around to scratching a tranny for the motor.

    Transmission for 1/6 Ford SOHC engines
    Hi,
    I just bought a 1/6 scale Ford SOHC drag engine and would like to install it in a 1/8 scale 'Big T'. Should make a great looking dragster. But, where do I find an appropriate transmission? Or, could I modify a 'Big T' tranny to look like a transmission that would fit behind the SOHC? Any ideas and advice will be greatly appreciated.
