    Actually, it's an '83.  The '84 has the colors reversed and a different grille.  Not sure why the thread title says 1984.

    Time Machine Resin makes one, shows up occasionally on eBay from them...

    $1.99 a gallon at Shell here in Phoenix a couple days ago. 
  4. Rob Hall added a post in a topic What are the best kit Magnum 500s with trim ring?   

    Hmmm...I can't think of any kits with the trim ring style ones (would be ideal to use on for the Revell '76 Torino).   The Magnum 500 kit wheels that I can think of--Revell '68-69 Charger, AMT '68 Road Runner, '69 GTXes, '70 Super Bee, Revell '70 Torino and Mustang Boss kits, are all the chrome rim variety IIRC..

    I think of 'video' as the form, not the media...

    Way cool...I've got Bluesmobiles in 1/64th, 1/43rd, 1/32nd, and 1/18th, about time we get them in 1/24th..

    One anachronistic phrase I still use is 'roll down the window', though I haven't regularly driven a car w/ manual windows in over 20 years.   'power down the window' just doesn't take hold... I also do occasionally say 'tape' instead of 'record', though since I've had DVRs for 15 years or so..
    Haven't had a corded landline phone in probably 25 years.. got my first cell 20 years ago, and have had cordless phones since the around '90 or so.... but we still call them 'ring tones'... haven't had a rotary phone since my folks got rid of the black AT&T around 35 years ago..

    I think I saw a cell phone app that gives you a dial tone also..

    IIRC the '69 Barracuda was once reissued in the '70s in the GSM box art, but the reissue next month is supposed to be in original '69 style..
  10. Rob Hall added a post in a topic > MPC 1980 Road Runner   

    Makes sense they would reissue it in a replica of the original box art..

    If it's true to the original, it would be black..

    There was a company (Better Place) a few years ago that was working on a hot-swappable model for car batteries, but it didn't pan out and they went bust   Their idea was to pull into a garage/car wash style drive-thru, push a button and under the car an robot arm would yank the old battery and put in a new one..required lots of costly infrastructure and garages...they had a working pilot program w/ a fleet of Renault electric sedans in Israel.
    I like the concept of electric cars, esp. in large metro areas, but I'm not sure I'd buy one anytime soon.  Hard to beat the go anywhere/anytime simplicity of ICE cars..
  13. Rob Hall added a post in a topic Back to the Future... or what's old is new again!   

    I predict they will sell maybe a half dozen before folding... there can't be that many Back to the Future fans out there willing to splash $100k on a mediocre 80s car.

    Tesla has the Model 3 coming in a couple years, it will be their entry level model at around $35k, competitive with other electric cars like the Leaf, Focus Electric, etc..

    Contraband..
