    Thanks Bill. My goal is to build a base bench seat Satellite hardtop like my kid brother used to own. Looking at photos of a GTX and a Road Runner, the tail lights seem very similiar. Could GTX taillights pass for Satellite? Seem to me they may but I would like your opinion. How I wish that I had a photo of my brother's Satellite..*sighs*

    1969 GTX/Road Runner Differences?
    Just wondering if anyone can tell me what is involved in converting a '69 GTX to a '69 Satellite? I know that the Satellite is a dresses to Road Runner and looking at photos of the GTX and Road Runner, the cars appear similar other than ornamentation and trim. The Road Runner kits are expensive so I was wondering about converting a GTX and making it appear to be a Satellite. Hopefully, someone casts the proper grille..Any suggestions are welcomed..

    Monogram 1958 Thunderbird Parts or Parts Model/Kit?
    I have a very nice 1964 issue of the Monogram '58 Thunderbird builtup that some parts have fallen off of and gotten lost over the years. In particular are two of the headlights and one front bumper guard. I could also use some clean front and rear glass as this kit's glass has some glue damage on it. A junk build up that has these pieces, a started kit where the body has been hacked or just the pieces would be greatly of interest. I can trade or???

    Posting a couple more for ranma.... BTW, the '60 Impala 4 dr ht was a fairly badly warped promo that Rick managed to greatly improve upon and make presentable again.. proof positive that with enough time, effoprt, patience and love, we can do more than we often think we are able to.. enjoy: Someone really needs to cast a good '59 and '60 Sort Sedan.. and Nomad wagons from '50 - 61....

  10. impcon added a post in a topic New board category suggestion - let me know your thoughts   

    Seems pretty reasonable to me! A good idea!!! Gets my vote!! Actually, there could be a few additions such as seperate forums for exotics and imports but lets do it one step at a time.
  11. impcon added a post in a topic 'NASH-TY' Nash sedan delivery   

    WOW!!!!!!!!! That is so cool!!!!!!!!!! May I ask what you are using for q chassis and interior for thie or is it strictly curbside? If this could be reverse enginered to a close semblance of stock, it sure would be a unique addition as a delivery vehicle for a small corner grocery store - or a hearse for a funeral home for dwarfs? Just kidding... but the questions are serious as is the suggestion for a somewhat stock looking build..
  12. impcon added a post in a topic ARRRRRGHHHHHHH.. Just Missed this!   

    I wonder if someone hacked his account? Even for that seller, that price seems a little bit high...
    I think you about nailed it Tom..
  13. impcon added a post in a topic ARRRRRGHHHHHHH.. Just Missed this!   

    No - I wasn't serious - just sickened by..?? greed???? stupidity...??? wishful thinking....??? I see a fair amount of that sort of BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH on Ebay where the greed factor has gone into hyperdrive with a lot of sellers...... Sometimes I'm tempted to email sellers like that one and say something - but I can't think of anything nice to say... except that if that seller isn't on drugs - he should be ...... I'll leave it at that...

    Have a look on Ebay and they don't have to be old for someone to be willing to pay for them. Some sellers want as much for an empty box as what the whole kit should be selling for.. I amnot saying that they are getting what they want but you gotta give 'em "A" for effort..
