MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Ah, but you neglect to mention that you can write off the $923K on your Federal income tax. California VLF is considered the same as a property tax. Could be a deal maker.....
  2. Two kits with the Michaels 20% coupon. Revell XK-E coupe which will go nicely with the E-Type roadster kit I've had (Aoshima?). Also a Revell Corvette C7.R kit. Hadn't bought any cars in a while, being focused on Eduard Mustang F-6Ds. THERE'S a nice kit if you at all like that sort of thing.
  3. Well, heck. Maybe the aftermarket will see the need.
  4. Fat Brian, Iborg, and Dave Van, check your PM.
  5. Any idea if the RX7/Savanna includes LHD parts? Had an '82 RX7, loved it but it wasn't compatible with 2 adults and a car seat (later 2 car seats).
  6. Got it scanned, check your PM in a bit. Dave Van, did I understand you'd like a copy also?
  7. Regarding the GTX Mustang/Turbo Capri kit bash: I can scan the article and PM it to you. Looking it over, its not a step-by-step as much as "here's things to adjust and look out for".
  8. And to add to the "useless junk pile" the Motorsport Mustang underpinnings are a near drop fit on the Tamiya Turbo Capri kit. Naturally as the original car was a simple re-body of the Group 5 Capri. Just such a build was the subject of an article in the late and much lamented Motor Racing Replica News.
  9. Try here. I don't think you get the exact makers you're looking for but you might get an idea. Example I just tried a near clone of American Racing mags on my Mustang. Giving me a "Hmmmm" moment. https://www.americastire.com/learn/wheel-configurator?storeCode=1342
  10. Got mine yesterday on the Left Coast. I NEVER get mine that close to publication start.
  11. Maserati Levante SUV in dark blue, shopping center parking lot in Windsor, CA just like this one: It does NOT stand out in a crowd.
  12. Similar experience with our (my wife's, actually) 1982 RX7. 19 mpg highway, 19 mpg city. One of those cars I wish we still had but 2 seats and 3 in the family didn't translate well.
  13. 1958 Ford Ranchero white over yellow and sitting in a rancher's field outside of Philo, CA. Haven't seen one of those in well over a month of Sundays.
  14. Then there was early '80's chic. https://blog.consumerguide.com/high-end-haunches-luxury-bustlebacks-1982/ I recall at the time someone noted the resemblance of the bustle back to the classic Rolls Royce design to one of the designers. His response was to the effect that if you're going to steal, steal from the best.
