I found a sealed one on a Goodwill auction site last night & put in a bid for $5.00 & found I won it this morning. Thanks for offering to pick one up for me. I wish we had an Ollies around here. It sounds like a great place for cheap models. Never heard of them until people started mentioning it on here.
RIP Gregg. So many rockers from the 60's & 70's have been passing the last couple of years. When you're young you never think that the people in the groups you grow up with are going to one day get old & die.
I'm thinking of ordering one of these. Has anyone built one? I know some of the old Lindberg models have a lot to be desired & I want to make sure this isn't one of them. Is this model actually 12" long?
I've had the truck over 6 years & It's always been reliable (until lately). The rust is what stops me. When I bought It there was very little & now it's spreading all over. Even the body mounts are starting to rust through. I can keep it up mechanically but I don't think the body's going to make it through another Indiana winter. It's a shame how devastating road salt is to a vehicle.
I doubt I fix it. Northern Indiana's winters have taken their toll on the body & the rust is getting pretty bad. It's worth a brake line but not a transmission. As High Octane said It's a money pit & I don't see It ending.
My falling apart '99 Dodge Dakota. I put new hub bearings & all four tie rod ends in it in Feb. & was then told all four ball joints & the tranny mount needed replaced. Got that done. Then came a new exhaust. Leaving work yesterday the trans. stuck in first gear so I drive 10 miles home at 15 mph. As I pull In my driveway a brake line pops. Over a thousand in it so far & it's beached again. I think it's time to say goodbye & start looking for something else.
