  1. pack rat added a post in a topic Any idea how to "tint" windows   

    The clear T-tops on this T/A were tinted with Tamiya TS-71 (three coats).

    Thanks, guys.  On my to-do list is the restoration of another Mach 1 I purchased awhile back; this time in the correct candy apple red.

    No Superstang buildups, but I have a Mach 1 and an Iron Horse..both built decades ago
    For reasons I can't recall, I decided the Mach i looked better in silver (probably because of a limited budget, and a can of silver paint sitting on the shelf).  The tires were swapped with a set of low-profile big & littles from the scrap box (MPC Mako Shark maybe?).  I've purchased two Mach 1's, and they both have the tall tires as found in the AMT Indy cars (Willard Battery Spl etc) in the box.  I don't know what AMT was thinking, but they just don't fit the car at all.

    Pretty sure the headers are from the '65 Cuda

    I wish I had my box....got the kit when I was a kid and tossed the box; fortunately I saved the rest.
    In case anyone is wondering...here's the derby car.  This one wears poor-quality copies of the original decals.

    Here's the Gas Man, from the '60's-era 49er box.
    I don't know what the box will look like or the contents will be, but I know they have an original 49er kit on loan.  Note that the 49er had unique custom wheels that they would have to re-tool if they were to bring it back.

    Exactly right.  The original derby car that was recently found combined with the new-tool Elcamino

    Oh yea...I forgot about that horrible J Car!  I had one too; my first IMC kit.  It was scrapped for parts about an hour after I (sort of) built it.
    I recently bought another one; this time it will be done up right.

    Years ago, I was one of the many tempted by this beautiful box......we all know the rest of the story

    Not a pic of the contents, but this should give you an idea re the simplicity

    The Pacer will be buildable stock, it has the 6 cylinder engine, and the box art shown in Gerry's post above is the one they're using

    Yes, the '67 Camaro annual has the Apache wheels.  The '71 Monte Carlo annual has them too. There may be others.......

    That question would best be answered by Round2

    There were plans to reissue the Honda ATC90, but I'm pretty certain it was cancelled.    
  15. pack rat added a post in a topic Annual '65 Ford Fairlane 500 # 5165-150   

    Yup.  I don't have a '65 Fairlane annual or the T310 reissue (yet), but this little beater cost me five bucks (the A pillar is missing on the passenger side).
