      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    You're welcome, Chris. Thank you for the correction on the steering wheel. The boat belongs to my boss. His father had it, and several years after he passed, my boss restored it. Over 5 figures in chrome on that tub! The kit engine has some V-6 Hemi, but this boat has a 327 AMC (converted to marine use by Gray Marine) that originally had two 2bbl sidedraft Carters. Now has a Holley 4bbl.

    Century Coronado
    Some 1:1 pics of a Century Coronado. The kit is different in a couple areas-- the prow is different with the "pig nose", the back seat upholstery detail is totally off, and inconsistent with the other seats, and the dash layout needs to be scraped off and sanded. Thankfully, the gauge decals appear to be accurate. This particular boat does not have the hardtop.  Also, the real steering wheel came from a '59 Lincoln. The kit piece is nowhere close. Enjoy!

    Actually, Art, the Mercedes that AMGeneral are building are Chinese market only R-class. We (MBUSI in Tuscaloosa, AL) are still the only plant that builds the GLE and GLS as well as most US market C-class sedans. We had to contract Mishawaka to build the R class to free up capacity for the others.

  6. wku88 added a post in a topic Unleaded15... is this stuff any good?   

    Yes, it will run fine. You will see a slight decrease in fuel mileage, but it will run ok. Your engine's computer will make sure of that.

    After 35 years, yeah, it's obscure.  BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH fine album though. Punk meets Jazz and killer lyrics.

    Nice work! Where did you get the KY plates? I'm not sure you know, but KY has never had front plates.

    I'm guessing the only one without meatballs is the Phil Specter car?
