  1. Hi from central Florida

    Welcome Randy. It's great to see someone near my age and living within twenty miles of me.
  2. '30 Ford Touring car; need photos

    Will this help. Be sure to open all the pictures. http://www.2040-cars.com/Ford/Model-A/1930-ford-model-a-phaeton-touring-convertible-632741/
  3. MPC Daytona Show transporter

    Daytona show transporter. Anybody know about any Daytona show?
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I grew up in the n.w. suburbs of Detroit. Every year on the 4th of July there were hydroplane races on the Detroit river. Miss Budweiser was around back then. The spray that comes from the back of the boat is called a rooster tail.

    Henrix cast the 58 Ford in both hardtop and convertible. His castings are well done.
  6. This HAS to be THE crapiest box art EVER!!!!

    I don't really view this as a discussion. It's more of a pet peeve of some. Anyone who was around in 69 and is old enough to understand the market for models at the time and the popularity of "flower power". Just google "69 flower power cars" and check out the many Chrysler products that year that had flowered interiors and roof.
  7. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    I have rear kits, but this is my favorite. I started it last week.
  8. Big Three engines by FTB

    These may help you some. https://www.allpar.com/mopar/a-engines.html https://www.allpar.com/mopar/poly.html http://victorylibrary.com/mopar/dodge-c5.htm A block poly engines first appeared in 1956. The distributor is is mounted behind the intake and to the right of the cam. The oil filter was on the rear left side.

    Flip and modify the manifold by removing the radiator goose neck. B block on left, A block on right.
  10. Florida Hobby shops

    I imagine your going to use I-95. All the above mentioned are west of there.
  11. Big Three engines by FTB

    This is supposed to be a Chrysler B block engine. It was the first v-8 wedge Chrysler made and was not available until the 1958 Plymouth, Dodge and DeSoto models used it. The 58 Plymouth was the 350 model. Dodge and DeSoto used the 361. Plymouth used the 361 in 59. This engine you built here has 2 flaws. It has an A block intake manifold which puts the distributor in the back instead of the front and the oil filter should be horizontal instead of vertical. The 58 Plymouth sold by Walmart has the proper intake and is a proper representation of the B block.
  12. Olds Engine

    That's good cause I don't sell them. I cast mine from a junk Danbury Mint 55 Olds I picked up cheap a few years ago.
  13. Olds Engine

    I made an rtv mold and cast the Olds engine from the AMT 39/40 Ford 2dr sedan. The 54-58 Olds engine used these valve covers, so unless you can find a pair, it won't be accurate. A nice Carter wcfb 4bbl carb would also help. I have both.
  14. 1953 Crown Victoria....

    This build is beyond words. What a fantastic representation.
  15. This is a sweet build, John. As a big Olds fan, it makes it even sweeter. Can't wait to see the finished product.
