    I will miss the good local shops here...I went to Hobby Depot in Tempe often over the last 9 years.

    '67 was when the van had a restyled front end, and a V8 became available..the 283.   The '64-66 had a 4 cyl and 2 6 cyl engines available.

    No.   The AMT 68 Road Runner kit has never had Superbird parts. (The Superbird was a 70).

    The Foose kit represents a customized body....

    There was a Chevy van, I believe.  I have the Lincoln Mk III, a '71-72 Chevy pickup w/ camper, a '68 Mustang, and the '68 Corvette.  I believe there was also a '71 Riviera and '71 Grand Prix, among others.
  6. Rob Hall added a post in a topic What did you see on the road today?   

    Makes sense...I think I've seen them in use in farming areas in California and Ohio in the past.

    Agricultural?  Some sort of specialized tractor? 
  8. Rob Hall added a post in a topic 1967 International Loadstar 1600   

    Neat subject..would love to see a kit of one of these.   As a kid in Ohio I rode on school buses w/ this front, and our neighbor had a Loadstar dump truck for years, would deliver gravel for our long driveway...

    I've been using Pods (filled up 2 16 foot ones, shipped them to Ohio and unpacked them, working on #3 now).  I've been ordering my boxes, tape, bubble wrap, etc from Amazon...hard to beat boxes delivered to the door...hired guys for loading and unloading the heavy furniture, but pretty much been my sister and I on everything else..
  10. Rob Hall added a post in a topic C'mon USPS!   

    I recently bought something on eBay from Tucson, about 90 miles down I-10 from Phoenix.   It was shipped via USPS to Rancho Cucamonga, Ca (sorting facility?) and then onto Phoenix... 
  11. Rob Hall added a post in a topic How can I convince them we need a hobby shop here?   

    That is unfortunate...I'm in the process of moving from the Phoenix area (county of 4.5 mill) to the Cleveland area.    I remember there being a lot more shops around when I lived in NE Ohio 25 years ago.   I buy most of my kits online, but I enjoy going to a shop for supplies and browsing.
  12. Rob Hall added a post in a topic No more Centerline racing wheels....   

     
    Yeah, for street use, they seem like a '70s-80s style thing to me...I remember the 14-15" sizes then, don't remember noticing them in the 90s to present as wheel sizes got larger.  I do like them for some model cars, though.   The funny thing is in 30+ years of driving, I've never bought a set of aftermarket wheels..only had stock wheels on my 1:1 cars.

    Moving is exhausting...filling up my last shipping Pod..should be shipping it to Ohio next week, and hitting the road next Friday...2000 mile drive w/ the dogs. 
  14. Rob Hall added a post in a topic Only 18 Percent Of Americans Can Drive Manual. :(   

    My sister learned to drive in a '68 Cougar w/ a 3spd manual w/ manual brakes and manual steering.  She's had many cars w/ manuals over the years--4 Datsun/Nissan Zs from a '78 280Z to a '90 300ZX Turbo, a Saab 900 Turbo and an Acura Legend coupe...
    I've had five manuals over the years--Ford Escort diesel, Mustang LX, Mustang GT, Bronco II, and a BMW M3...probably will have another fun car w/ a manual eventually, but for a daily driver I prefer my Jeep w/ an automatic..(the 8spd auto in my GC is very smooth).
  15. Rob Hall added a post in a topic What Irked You Today?   

    Black is definitely not a good color in dry, dusty, hot AZ...but it should be fine once I get it back to Ohio and in my garage.  
    Funny thing, though, there are a lot of black SUVs in the Phoenix area...at the car wash yesterday all the other SUVs I saw were black or white--Acuras, Cadillacs, BMWs, other Jeeps, Mercedes, etc.   And in my parking garage at work, seems like they are all black or white..
