    ..and this is why your LOCAL hobby stores close  You keep buying online and then your local store closes because you didn't support him

    Some of you may not fully understand the history of the 300SL Coupe. It started life as a race car for M-B in the early 1950s and was later adapted for the street. I just acquired about 100 old car magazines from the 1950s including Road & Track and Sports Car Graphic. In these magazines there are numerous photos of 300SL Coupes racing on road courses. air strips (like Sebring), the PanAmericana, Bonneville, and many other places. The 300SL was a race car with license plates. Bob Sirna has built his 300SL as a Bonneville car and is the current record holder in the class at over 190MPH. The others associated with the car include John Fitch and Tony Delorenzo, both well known racers. Bob is also a member of the 300SL Club and a past president. He is well known and well respected as a car owner and racer

    Concours of America
    This annual event was held in Plymouth, Michigan, a short four hour drive from home. Saturday morning started with a Cars & Coffee event and about 400 cars. I arrived at 6:30AM (yes, I left home at 1:45AM ) and was able to spend several hours chatting with people, taking photos and enjoying cars of all ages, shapes and sizes. The Sunday Concours had almost 300 extremely well restored and preserved cars from CanAm to drag to vintage, 13 original Cobras in one display, eight CanAm cars, 8 drag cars, a 62 Studebaker Indy Pace Car (son of the original owner, over 250,000 original miles) and too many more to describe. Have a look, there are nearly 1200 photos plus a short video, enjoy

    Many years ago I started with Fotki, 2001 to be exact. I started with the free package and soon upgraded to store more photos. Over the years I have added thousands of photos. Lots of people criticized me and laughed at me for using Fotki as they used free Photobucket. Well, here we are, many years later and Photobucket is getting even for all those free years. Still laughing? Fotki costs me less than $40 a year for 100GB of storage space. Translate 100GB into photos...I have over 200,000 photos on Fotki! Some in public albums, some in private albums. I have no problem sharing them. The rates are still fair and reasonable. The site is easy to use. I load photos by drag and drop, thousands at a time. When I have had a problem, Fotki has solved them. I like Fotki

    Here is a photo of a prototype chassis, almost naked...does it remind you of any car?

    There is the Revell Corvette, a good start; you can modify a Camaro and Mustang, not much chance of the rest   Maybe in resin?
