  1. Beach Boys Song. Shut Down Dodge Dart

    Barring that you do this one with a red Viper. I'm held up because I can't find a proper Slappy Squirrel figurine.
  2. What did you see on the road today?

    In a previous life I had to verifiy a VIN on an old car at a crane and rigging company. Took me to a beaten down shed like you expect to find in a crane and rigging company. Inside was an absolute cherry '60 Chrysler 300. White on white. It had the swivel bucket seats. Not a Chrysler guy but that car was gorgeous.
  3. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    You can say much the same thing about the 1969 Shelby GT 350/GT 500. So many left over that they had to do a quick paint addition (black stripes on the hood) and re-do the VIN so they could sell them as 1970s. Also the Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Superbirds. Just stinking up the lots. Look at the prices for all of them now.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    How many variations off the K-car platform? It kept Chrysler alive for a while, so there's that.
  5. FORD v FERRARI | Official Trailer [HD] | 20th Century FOX

    Probably just like this only with more recent tech.
  6. Any one in the know with Hasegawa?

    On that subject was there ever a transkit to make the factory front end rather than the pontoon fender? I know the pontoon fender has more "character" but the smoother front end version had a better race history.
  7. Columbo's Peugeot 403

    I think the only kit is/was a Heller 1/43. Otherwise just die-cast. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Peugeot-403-1956-1-24-New-Box-Diecast-model-Car-miniature-/312432132709
  8. FORD v FERRARI | Official Trailer [HD] | 20th Century FOX

    Looks like a lot of broken, flying Ferraris are featured.
  9. FORD v FERRARI | Official Trailer [HD] | 20th Century FOX

    Didn't know about it until I saw the trailer during the NBA Finals. Got to admit that I wouldn't have pictured Matt Damon for Carroll Shelby. Christian Bale works for Ken Miles, though. The director last did "Logan" so I'm thinking good thoughts.
  10. What did you see on the road today?

    That 1950 (?) Ford-that is the first car I ever remember-period. My parents had one, down to that color. I recall standing up on the back seat, looking at the cars behind us. I'm surprised we survived that era-no seat belts (or seat belt laws), no safety glass, no car seats. I can't imagine what it would cost to fill the 67 Galaxie with gas in NL. A small house payment I'd imagine. That last one, you can keep over there.
  11. Got a new daily ride yesterday!

    One thing about the color, its great for "keeping the devil out of your foot". Get frisky and someone will call the cops, saying "I don't know who it was but he was driving an eye-searing yellow car." They will know just who's house to go to. Speaking as the owner of the only Grabber Blue Mustang in a town of 15K.
  12. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I got a partly painted, partly built Monogram 1932 Cadillac V-16 Phaeton kit on the floor of an antique collective store for all of $5.00. It is a car/era I've never been interested in before and for $5 what the heck. I'm 98% sure its complete. Now I've got to go back and learn disassembly, some paint stripping is called for.
  13. What did you see on the road today?

    That and the steering wheel was put on the wrong side. Seriously, I'm in admiration of anyone who takes random parts and makes a car. I've got a neighbor who does just that.
  14. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    1969 It was the conjunction of getting my driver license beginning my interest in cars, the height of the horsepower wars, before the insurance rates went sky high and emission controls strangled performance for the next 15 years. Mustang Chevelle Roadrunner Torino Coronet
