    I remember orange push-ups.  My Dad liked those in the 70s and I remember having them as a kid...don't recall ever seeing them again after the 70s, though.

    Acutally, you are one of the 'pedantic, grumpy old guys', this forum is full of them...   .and who is to say something is correct or not?  Certainly not you. Language is not static, language evolves over time...

    'build' is a commonly used term for a model car project or 1:1 car project...just because a few pedantic, grumpy old guys don't recognize it doesn't invalidate it...

    Your dictionary reference is out of date....

    50s-60s were before my time, but I do remember in the 80s seeing a  GM full line dealer in Key West, Florida.   i don't recall how the Ford and Chrysler dealers were set up, but they probably had all the brands each also.

    Yeah, I assume it goes way back, I've long read the Max Wedge Plymouths and Dodges referred to as Super Stock class cars...

    No, that's a 914...  the greenhouse is definitely a 914. I think I saw this car at Rennsport Reunion..looks familiar.

    The AMT name definitely has more market presence and recognition..
    Super Stock would be too long to fit at that font size...

    Model Roundup is where I buy the MK releases...no problem getting them from there.

    I liked how they had the instructions on the old site and grouped them by the year sort-of released.

    Ya, that's an oldie...I remember hearing it on MTV 25 years ago...

    Yah, VARs... my last consulting firm was a VAR...we sold licenses and installed products from various big name software vendors and provided consulting services around using and customizing those products...

    Yes, it's part of corporate life...I hear some of it every day at work.   I just go on my way, in my cube leveraging my core competencies to actionize on deliverables that create shareholder value... client asked today if I'd re-up for another 6 month tour...been there 18 months, not a bad place to leverage synergies and make bank..

    When I lived in Colorado Springs in the late 90s, one of my managers at a big telecom company was an obnoxious suburban middle aged golfer who was obsessed with WWF wrestling and gangster movies, he used to do a fake Hispanic gangster accent...greeting people as 'ese' or 'homes'...taking about 'busting caps', etc...was always quoting the movie 'Blood In, Blood Out'..

      When I worked for a consulting firm a few years ago, at the initial meeting with a new client, the firm's CEO told the client that he would have 'boots on the ground' the following Monday...i.e. myself and 2 other software engineers at their office w/ our Mac Book Pro laptops getting started on a project....not exactly soldiers in enemy territory.
