Went to a neighborhood coffee shop for breakfast this morning...I got my coffee and bagel, sat down and looked at my receipt...only to see a senior discount (I'm 45). I'm not sure if it was that I looked tired and haggard at 6am, or the Millenial behind the counter really thought I was that old... At lunch, I got to ride in a coworker's '15 Mustang...first time I'd been inside one. They look great outside, but wow..they feel really small inside...the sloping roofline really cuts into backseat headroom, though there is more front seat headroom than my old Foxes. But I've driven a few '05-14 style Mustangs, and this car felt smaller inside...steeper windshield rake and smaller side windows. Felt smooth, though.
You can't...80 was the first year of it's generation. Pretty much nothing in common w/ the '73-79 except the engine and some dirty bits. The AMT F350 longbed Camper Special is the only game in town for the '73-79 generation.
Got a big smashed box from Model Roundup yesterday w the Galaxie Chevys, one of the Moebius Satellites and the new Revell snappy '17 Raptor and Vette. ( the boxes on the last two were crushed but Revell bubble wrapped them inside).
Saw an interesting 1:1 in traffic today..it was a pre-78 Plymouth Voyager version...short wheelbase window van with a wide side-opening rear door. Was tan w/ a brown stripe, in very good condition, shiny chrome grille and bumpers.
I hate outsourcing...working with a software vendor in China currently on a project for my client...it's quite frustrating to have 4-5 hr calls with one person translating back and forth to try and clarify requirements...
Yes. Anyway, trivial engine errors like that are usually a non issue on most kits as it is hidden under the hood when the kit is finished. I can see how one might get upset by something like that on a hot rod w/ no hood, though
