      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Check out Wheeler Dealers on Velocity (if you can). You'll get to hear the differences in action (and understand pretty quick).

    Anything molded in. Exhaust system, drive train, suspension, front end, fuel tank, seats ... Hated it on the 'annuals' (yeah, I know, they were really promos, but come on - why include zoomie headers when the exhaust system is molded in place? Because the kids won't notice? They coulda been smarter). Totally inexcusable for the Trophy Series-type kits. That's why re-issues don't thrill me.

    Probably everything Monogram made from Day 1. Maybe even Lindberg (including their make-it-fit-the-box scale). Pyro? Y'know, come to think of it, not making it in 1/25 scale should have resulted in a long prison sentence.

    Finally! Nice Headlights!!
    I said the same thing when she came back from the plastic surgeon.

    Classification question
    The mid-60s NHRA rules stipulate: G/Gas and H/Gas were for non-supercharged pre-1960 flathead V-8’s, in-line six cylinder and straight eight engines with stock production-type heads and pre-1960 unblown 4-cylinders with any type head.
    To me it could be read two different ways.
    Did it mean V-8s but only if pre-1960 flathead, OR any type (OHV or flathead) inline 6 or straight 8?
    Or did it mean only pre-1960 flathead engines: V-8 flathead, inline 6 flathead, or straight 8 flathead?

    If memory serves, the 1:1 car had that crazy Man-A-Fre 4-corner manifold while the kit had your standard one (or two?) 4-bbl set-up.
    That's IF memory serves ...

    Agree, Art, and aware. That's why it's a fantasy. >sigh<
  11. Reegs added a post in a topic Where is Round 2 manufacturing their kits?   

    The AMT stuff is in China? There goes my fantasy about Round2 correcting the unfortunate tooling decisions that AMT made back in the '60s - you know: Hey kids! Parts to build a gasser! Just ignore the stock exhaust system and gas tank that we molded into the frame! 
    And don't get me started about the annuals with that blob undercarriage (okay, originally they were promos, but AMT could have been smarter about it).

    But wouldn't something that large crowd out the fish?

    OK. Howzabout I T-bone Rodan when it fell from the sky after being blasted by JSADF F-86s?
  14. Reegs added a post in a topic Airbag recall... giant PITA!   

    2010 Versa's are part of the recall - BUT - mine isn't because it was sold in the northeast, where humidity is low. Sure. Right now it's so humid that I'll have to swim to my car to go and buy rolls.
    So if I t-bone some a..hole who runs a light and subsequently lose my face, all I can do is blame the weather?
  15. Reegs added a post in a topic '60s Drag Racing...a real deal reference   

    Amen to that (except that they have gotten safer. Some of those rollbars are practically non-existent).
