If someone can't tell that the '62 Chevy in your picture is a model then maybe they need glasses more than I need mine.This isn't a knock on your model or the picture.The indicators are there if one just studies the photograph.Keep on composing and posting your shots the way you desire.I like them the way they're presented.

When I worked at the Buick dealership back in the 80s we had one of those FBI cars come in.We had heard about the special chip so we pulled the chip out of this car and took a look at the code numbers on it.Guess what? it was the stock production chip.
Many shows have floor rights that,for extra money,allow the payer earlier access that the rest of the attendees.Usually that earlier time coincides with the set-up time for the vendors.We do it at the two D.A.A.M. shows here in metro Detroit.
I worked as a porter at a VW dealer back in the mid 70s and got to sample a few of the Type 4s.They were stone slow and would develop a fluctuating idle problem.I don't remember the fix for it.The engine was the same type as the concurrent Type 2(Bus).And they even sold a few manual trans equipped cars here-those were all 2 door fastbacks and they were almost peppy.Any other version had an automatic trans.
It was my first time attending and I was absolutely amazed at the number and quality of models on display.If this was a judged contest I don't know how long it would take to pick out class winners(or if it could be done). I was pleasantly surprised when both magazines wanted to photograph one of the models I brought. I'll attend again-maybe not next year but I will be back!
