    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<

    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?
  10. 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?

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

    It's Kenz & Leslie

    Art was Jack's uncle.
    Jack was one of the four guys that "introduced" the tube-chassis flopper. The others were Nicholson, Schartman, and for the life of me I can't remember the team..
    Re: George Klass - it woulda been nice if he posted the year the pic was taken. And it looks (to me) like most of the pics are from the late '50s and early '60s, without much from the mid-'60s.
    Still ... what a site!
  14. Reegs added a post in a topic Need Help - What's This Engine?   

    You guys a putting way too much thought into this. It's a Lindberg V-8. The original kit went for like 99¢ back in the '60s so you shouldn't expect much in the way of scale accuracy. It's a generic V-8.
  15. Reegs added a post in a topic Wish Lists   

    Since this is a wish list:

     
    - a mid-‘60s FED. Long/Fuller/Kellison-type frame, 150” – 160” scale wheelbase. All parts faithful to the era (like the slicks, gentlemen). Two-piece body, as long as it’s top and bottom (or three piece if you mold the ‘chute fairing separately). Two engine options: a supercharged 392 Hemi and a small block Enderle-injected Chevy for the jr. fueler fans (like me).

     
    - a mid-60s altered. Again, all parts faithful to the era. Tube chassis but with a more period-typical vertical rollbar braced from the front (the Winged Express frame is more towards the end of the decade). Topolino or Bantam coupe body. Supercharged big block Chevy (or small block. Worked pretty good for Rich Guasco) w/optional parts for fuel injection.
