  1. Now I think this is silly

    And, it could carry a 300SLR up to 106mph! https://www.mercedes-benz.com/en/mercedes-benz/classic/museum/mercedes-benz-high-speed-racing-car-transporter/
  2. Here ya go. Should be lots of ideas for you.
  3. Seventies Land Yachts?

    Exactly. The 77-79 'Birds have been requested forever, and the LTD II, Cougar, and MKIV, and MKV could all be done with the same or slightly modified chassis tooling. Dash is almost identical for most versions, and seats and interior tubs have minor variations, but the Mobius F100 kits show how that can be done.
  4. Old Car Meet in 1939

    Not only a Mercer, but at least one Stutz K series Bearcat, and a Jordan Playboy. Several Hudsons, and everyone recognized the Buicks and Model Ts, but did you also catch the Model A Ford (the first model As, not Henry's Lady), a model K Ford, and the International Harvester Motorwagons? Not to mention the Fiat Mephistophole, and the racing Benz. Strangely absent, although they would have been relatively contemporary then, were any Duesenberg, or Cadillac.
  5. GMC Daycab done 10/21

    Kroger used hundreds of these to haul groceries between the Cincinnati and Louisville distribution warehouses. Even had the 2 hole Budds.
  6. Sorry, Not in my book

    Nice stick weld. Bet it wasn't done with a Tombstone Lincoln!
  7. Model T Truck Kit...?

    Well, I have seen them with shift levers, so it must have been this, according to Wikipedia: " It was often equipped with an accessory gearbox, such as the Ruckstell or Jumbo gearboxes, which allowed the truck to have intermediate gears between low and high, useful for hill climbing.
  8. Model T Truck Kit...?

    Don't forget the TT also had a conventional manual transmission as well.
  9. Moebius new stuff

    But will the bumpside F100 4x4 come out before the 64-66 versions?
  10. Escort Pro-Stock

    Interesting fact: The EXP was heavier than the standard 2 dr sedan, despite not having a rear seat!
  11. BB Chevy Engine Question

    Surprised nobody has mentioned this one: http://www.stanceiseverything.com/2014/12/wtf-friday-rick-dobbertins-pontiac-j2000/ It might be able to be squeezed under a Chevelle hood. But you may need to relocate the radiator and lengthen the fenders!
  12. International 9300 SBA

    I'll be in line for one!
  13. We'll be neighbors in a couple years. I got a place in Scottsville, KY. And Bucky, I get to Lawrenceburg a couple times a year on business. Nice truck, BTW. Never understood why Ford didn't offer a dually pickup until 1980.
  14. 50,000 + kits from just one mold ?

    A model kit is pretty simple compared to some of the injected molded parts I deal with. If a cooling fan shroud made from glass fiber reinforced Nylon can be shot in less than 90 second cycle time, I'm sure a kit could be less. How long is 50,000 minutes? 34.7 days.... Injection molding is most consistent when allowed to run uninterrupted. Keep the bin full of resin, and barring a failure, 50k kits could be done in 5 or 6 weeks.
