  1. I'm sure everyone knows that the AMT kit was a take-off on The Syndicate. According to Draglist, it was an AA/FD. Various sources confirm it had mediocre performance, and that the advent of rear engine dragsters caused it to get parked. http://www.draglist.com/draglist/search.php?q=the+syndicate&search=Search&exact=exact&VIEW=Extended
  2. Here's a pic of the engine espo was referring to. This is from the original instruction sheet, but the engine hasn't changed since the 60's.
  3. That came out great! ๐Ÿ˜
  4. Amazingly clean workmanship! โœ”๏ธ
  5. It's from the AMT 1961 Mercury. https://public.fotki.com/drasticplasticsmcc/mkiba-build-under-c/amt-instructions/automotive-cars--pi/mercury/amt-1961-mercury-mo/61mercvert2.html
  6. Thar's really nice Dennis, meticulous as always. I should add that your in-progress shots look better than a lot of the finished work I've seen. ๐Ÿ˜
  7. Thanks Bill. California recently imposed mandatory solar panels on all new homes. I know someone who was buying a new home and was faced with that "rent or buy" scam. The homebuilder ( I don't know who ) gave them the garbage about having to pay for maintenance/repair if they chose to buy. I'm also expecting Cali to do something like forcing older homes to have solar before they can be sold.
  8. The lovely city I live in wants to increase the sales tax to 10.25%, add a $60 to $100 property tax surcharge, and has hinted at adding 5 cents per gallon to the state gas tax.
  9. This was posted on the Un-Certain T facebook page. Credited to Rob Giesbrecht. The car in the original post was part of his inspiration.
  10. Another "not a car". Guy that built this was my friend for many years. Key word "was". He really thinks this is a great idea. It's VW powered, with all that stuff on it, it's probably not a whole lot faster than a Bug.
  11. I have Windows 10 and hate it. Things just aren't as simple as in prior versions. Plus files (like saved pics) end up duplicated in different locations. I still don't know how to fix that. One thing to be aware of if you want to write documents or do a spread sheet. There is no more Microsoft Works/Word. It's now Office, which is a subscription service. You can purchase it, but it will not be supported. Of course there are options like Google Docs etc, but I was completely accustomed to the writing programs from Microsoft,
  12. I have Lyme disease. It has completely devastated my life. Bambi and her clan frequently visited my parent's back yard.
