  1. Up through 1966 the NHRA only allowed non-supercharged SBC (or equivalent) engines in short wheelbase cars like Anglias. 1967 and 1968 it was any size engine but non-supercharged. By 1969 blown engines were okay. The AHRA always allowed blown engines of any size (iirc). In the NHRA, frames were "stock automobile-type". I guess that could be open to interpretation. In 1968, since more and more teams were using modern bodies (too compete for eyeballs with funny cars), purpose-built frames were okay. Don't know about the AHRA - probably the same.
  2. A half-assed spreadsheet I put together a while back: flat 4 Ford w/Riley OHV AMT 29 Model A Rdstr Ford w/Riley OHV Revell 31 Model A Rat Rod Ford w/Frontenac OHC AMT 27 Model T Touring flat 6 Plymouth AMT 41 Plymouth Willys AMT 41 Jeep ohv 4 Chevy MPC 76 Vega Ford AMT 74 Pinto Ford MPC 77 Pinto Wgn.

  3. Now all we have to do is sit back and wait for Atlantis to clean up the tool for the Hawaiian FED that Revell was going to release in late '65 but didn't because of licensing issues. Oh wait, that happened in an alternate universe ...
  4. "But OTOH, maybe the decision to retool the kit was made without any consideration to the comments made on this forum." I was thinking the same thing.
  5. The AMT 1932 Chevy Cabriolet. Throw in a hard top option like they did for the '36 Ford.
  6. Thanks for that site. The '63 Corvette engine is a new one on me. Would love to see that one available. Also the nailhead. Heck, all of them.
  7. Sorry, can't do pics. Tires look good. Correct color, crisp detail (I think anyway).
  8. Parts Pack Chrome Chevy Engine (loose) Parts Pack Roadster Frame (bagged) Parts Pack Mooneyes Dragmaster frame (bagged) Parts Pack Roadster Speed Equipment modified (round steering wheel smaller, drag link longer) (bagged) Parts Pack Chrome Competition Wheels and Mags (loose) Rubber Pie Crust slicks and skinnies on a rubber tree (loose) Mooneyes decals (loose) Instructions (loose)
  9. I found the roadster frame in the box, too. Wisht it was the tubular frame. Maybe in the future. Anyway, thanks a bunch, guys.
  10. Should Atlantis want to reproduce the Bantam I have one complete in the original box to use as a template.
  11. I think I still have most of the pieces. I do remember that maybe 10 - 15 years ago attempting to remove the slicks from the wheels for some reason. As I was prying the tire off the rim the rim ... bent. Not broke, bent. Can't imagine what sort of chemical reaction happened over the years to soften the plastic like that.
  12. Answers my question. I definitely want the Fiat. I'd look forward to a T and Bantam altered, too. I'd even take the Chassis Research/Scotty Fenn/dogsled rail, too. A few millenia ago I built a Bantam altered using Parts Pack gear. Hemi, tubular frame, the works. Wasn't too shabby for a thirteen year old kid. Still have it (in pieces).
  13. How do I contact Replicas And Miniatures of Maryland in order to place an order? Thanks.
  14. You guys are getting all worked up over the wrong issue. They molded the gas tank in place. Wish they wouldn't do that.
  15. I've discovered that the floor is a perfect place for loose parts.
  16. If it ain't a Sabretts it ain't a dirty water frank. A friend called the vendor "The Nasty Man" because he spends all day at his stand - where does he pee?
  17. The NHRA started allowing purpose-built frames in '67 or '68, so the chassis out of the Nova would be just fine. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
  18. Can't wait. Can't wait. Can't wait. Now, Moebius, what are the chances of getting a '65 'Cuda?
  19. No prob, Ceasar. BTW, a similar question , only about slot cars, every once in a while gets kicked around in the slot car forums, too.
  20. Why are you so sure that all they do is stare at their smart phones and play on their xboxes? How can you be so positive that they aren't doing anything creative? Does it need to be only your definition of creative?
