    NNL East ... a few more :)
    My drive to NNL East is about 800K, 500 miles, leaving Toronto, Ontario about 6:30AM, crossing from Canada to the U.S. at Lewiston, NY Thursday morning, then through NY, Penn. and into NJ. I stopped at Whitney Point, N.Y., just north of Binghampton for a few photos, then on to NJ. Friday Curb and I headed to Englishtown, NJ for a small swap meet, only about 2,000 vendors of car parts and other stuff. Friday night I had dinner with some close friends (thanks Kathy, Donn and Bob) and then back to the motel to talk to 1 or 2 people  Saturday at the PAL club I chatted for about an hour and a half before going into the show. The line up (you have seen the many photos) usually enters the building in about 15 minutes as tickets are presold in the line. This time the lineup took about 40 minutes! Yup, I would guess more than a gazillion people!  Inside the display room, the tables were already crowded with hundreds of models. I think there had to be close to 24/2500, but that is just a guess. I only took photos of the models I really liked or I might still be there  I also took a few shots of some of the people at the show. This is my 10th NNL East and each time it gets better and better and the models you see do the same. The best part is chatting to people you have never met, maybe traded emails or messages with online, but to see them live, shake their hand, shoot the breeze, share camaraderie, is the best part! Oh, and to top it all off, I won the raffle of the Bat resin prototype car, my second raffle win in four years Here is a link to my shots. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed taking them

    I am driving down Thursday. My boss gave me the extra day off (I am self-employed  ) Friday I am heading to the Englishtown Raceway Swap Meet with a couple of guys (some people say the swap meet is a waste of time but with 3,000 vendors and 300 plus cars, there might be something to look at  ). Friday off to dinner with some friends and then to the Tilted Kilt for a gab session. I have a handful of cars including my 24 hour build, some 63 Novas, some concept cars . Gee Bill, since you lost all that weight, I might not recognize you  Are you still 6'3" with a 5 foot smile

    I have thought that any day we will read an updated post saying they are closing now, whenever that may be. I think they misjudged the model collecting public  As well, I have heard of a few guys who are placing extra large orders adding to the strain of Modelhaus.

    There was one at the Detroit Autorama this year...

    I just finished reading the story of Jackie Stewart and he, and other GP drivers, fought hard to get safer cars. Yes, the cars of the 60s were simple, stylishly beautiful and exciting to watch, but also death tubes with little hope of surviving a crash without serious injury  One of my favourite GP cars is the early 60s Ferrari Shark Nose followed closely by the rear engine Lotus. After reading so many books about GP driving in the 60s, I am amazed some of the drivers survived at all.

    A few months ago I bought 2 sets locally at $10 a set. They are not too common but I have never seen a set more than $10.

    There was a note on one site (now gone)  that said the purchase of the business would also include the property and buildings, one of which I believe is their home. Has anyone else read or heard this? 
  12. Howard Cohen added a post in a topic snap kits   

    ...and so far you have all forgotten the 'Craftsman Series' that AMT had in the 60s. They weren't popular then as they were basic kits with no engine, no opening hood or doors or trunk (and at that point we all wanted an opening hood and engine) but now they command a high collector's price

    I have an older PT Cruiser snap kit under construction. The chassis is from the Monogram 53 Corvette, the engine is the Hemi from the 69 Daytona, the front end has been cut at the firewall and hinged forward, the rear side windows are filled in to make a sedan delivery. I am working on the interior, as soon as I get a good idea

    I bought a few slot cars today :)
    Turns out, the guy was a member of our club about 40 years ago and raced with us for a few years. There are 8 cars plus several chassis including 4 Cox chassis in boxes, not all complete but there are enough spare parts to fill them. Now, what to do with them all...I know, clean them and run them on my friend's track
