  1. BTW: what year was this frame used?
  2. 1960 Valiant SW Gold body, not green. 170 c.i. Slant Six, 3 on the floor
  3. But the lyric shoulda been: But parked in a rickety old garage is a brand-new, shiny red, Ramcharger Dodge Just to be accurate.
  4. Late to this discussion. Brilliant work, Ace, just brilliant. I love those old /MSP cars too. And kudos for the lesson re: "nose high".
  5. Among other things, AMT had a couple Offy roadsters. Monogram also had an Offy roadster.
  6. Common belief here in NJ is that turn signals summon demons.

    If I Ran Revell....

    Guess I'll never see that '39 Stude gasser. >sigh< I woulda bought two.
  8. I was going to suggest this mod to keep it pure Mopar, but iirc the NHRA wanted stock heads.
  9. It's in the food. Our food.

    If I Ran Revell....

    More Gassers, like a '39 Stude Businessman's Coupe. Two engine options (SBC and a 392) either blown or injected (builders choice), pie-crust slicks, the whole mid-'60s look. Oh, and please, keep it class legal - include two front seats and those damned splash panels. Yup, I prefer early iron. Then you can have all the dull-as-dishwater showroom stock kits you want.
  11. That's something that I'll proudly own up to.
  12. Yeah, I hear ya, Greg, blob undercarriage. That's why, back in the day, I could never get too worked up over the annuals. They were just unassembled promos - not that I knew what a promo was. At the time I couldn't understand why they did it, but now I do. But still ... Maybe if the weren't making kits for "the kids" ... Can't get worked up over the re-issues, either.
  13. The Krauts would start the engine (50 pulses per second) on the ground but needed a steam powered catapult to get it into the air. Makes me wonder what the poor slob driving the push car would be thinking ...
  14. 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".
  15. 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.
  16. So where exactly do you live? And when exactly are you not home?
  17. I remember an AMT '49 Ford in a real light green. Eventually got blowed up real good.
  18. Agree. Two burgers, small fries, small Coke should only cost 52ยข, too.
  19. Wish I could get the guys that I race with interested in doing something like that.

    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.
  21. 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?
