  1. Gasser class designations

    Ya gotta love Gassers.
  2. But ya just gotta love them Gassers.
  3. I guess it depends on your definition of "nose high". I remember the Gasser Wars and, while my memory is admittedly poor, I don't recall any of the competitive cars having too high of an angle off the imaginary level. F'rinstance, to me, this is too "nose-high".
  4. I asked this question in another forum but I would like confirmation: H/G, I/G, J/G, K/G - only flatheads? As with all things drag racing, the wording (to me, anyway) is open to interpretation.
  5. whats the rarest model you own and did you build it?

    So where exactly do you live? And when exactly are you not home?
  6. What Kits Were Molded in Green?

    I remember an AMT '49 Ford in a real light green. Eventually got blowed up real good.
  7. Agree. Two burgers, small fries, small Coke should only cost 52¢, too.
  8. SOME CURRENT ROUND 2 INFO TODAY...

    Wish I could get the guys that I race with interested in doing something like that.
  9. Locking Threads

    It looked to me like it was becoming a pissing contest over what is and what isn't art, which had nothing to do with goofy-looking box covers. If you want to sit around the kitchen table drinking beer while eating crackers and cheese and letting the conversation drift, set up a separate thread for it.
  10. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Don't intend to restart this thing, but has there been any specific mention of Monogram models in this thing? Or is it assumed that they're part of the Revell product line?
  11. The era of gassers and street freaks

    Where did you get the Falcon?
  12. The era of gassers and street freaks

    I would say that the Gassers reached the peak of their popularity in 1965. Starting in 1966 the AWB match racers began eroding this popularity, and by 1967 the flip-top funnies replaced them in the hearts of the fickle ticket-buying public. What sort of cars? Jeez. Depression-era anything, post-war Anglias and the like. Coupes, sedans, panels, pick-ups, you name it. Rarely Fords, though, because 1) the carcasses of the other makes were cheaper and 2) the hot-rodders got to them first anyway.
  13. Divided by a common tongue

    Grunnion banjos. Imagine that. Little fish in a bluegrass band.
  14. Decal printing

    Joe - have you tried that paper? Also: does it matter what type of printer? Years ago I tried printing decals on an inkjet and they came out somewhat transparent (I don't recall what setting they printed at). Will decals printed on a modern inkjet be opaque, or is it better to use a laser printer (not that I know how those come out)? Thanks.
  15. Pet peeve of mine!

    Amen, brudda, Amen.
