  1. 2019 Round2 Car Kit Releases

    Nice box art..I assume it's a reissue of this, which was a modified version of the old MPC '69 and has an oddly shaped roof, among other issues.
  2. Revell 2019

    No idea. I didn't get mine from HL.
  3. Revell 2019

    Specifically, the AMTT868/12 '68 Camaro Z/28 Retro Deluxe reissue has a set of 4 Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 and a set of 4 Goodyear Polyglas GT L60-15 tires. All with white lettering.
  4. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Got the Moebius '65 Ford F100 w/ service body and the Revell '57 Ford Tudor gasser today. Here are some pics of the service body parts... there also two outer tailgate beds, parts from future fleet side releases. And it has a V8 but there are some 6 cyl parts from the other releases.
  5. Some talk on car movies.

    I saw maybe the oddest car chase in a show the other evening. It was between a dirty cop driving a '85 Mustang LX convertible being chased by two criminals in a Nissan Leaf across New Mexico. The Leaf eventually drained it's battery and the Mustang driver backed into it. The Mustang was specifically mentioned as being a 5.0, but had no 5.0 badges. This was in the Amazon streaming show 'Too Old to Die Young', a very long, very slow paced, very colorful, very violent and strange trip from director/writer Nicholas Winding Refn, the Dutch auteur that made 2011's 'Drive' (which had some decent car chases and a great soundtrack). The show reminded me of David Lynch at his oddest...

  7. My Michigan Car Haul!

    Always wondered about the AHC-100 Camaro, never had one. I've only had MPC Camaros as far the '74 and later versions.
  8. Heh-heh..reminds me of some of the old worn out rusty trucks I see around here. Saw an S10 of that generation this morning with a loaded up bed and lots of rust..cab and bed didn't remotely line up..
  9. Terrible Box Art

    Not talking about just the built kit appearance, but the whole box art back then...so bland..blank background, little or no information about the kit on the sides, etc. Round 2 today puts a lot more effort into their box art.
  10. Terrible Box Art

    Yeah, so many of the AMT boxes of that era look like they put very little effort into the box art...very lazy...
  11. Terrible Box Art

    And it humorously says 'retouched photo of actual model'...they didn't retouch enough...doesn't even have a windshield.
  12. 1985 Olds Surpreme Brougham

    I think the Cutlass was also available w/ a 5spd in '78-79 (downsized A-body). I recall seeing a magazine road test of one, had a manual without a console IIRC.
  13. 1985 Olds Surpreme Brougham

    Yeah, I remember in the 80s when I was in high school they were everywhere...parents driving Cutlasses, 88s and Custom Cruisers, older people w/ 98s, kids driving handed down Cutlasses and 88s, etc..as common and mainstream as Toyotas are today.
  14. 1985 Olds Surpreme Brougham

    Sharp...like the period AZ plate and other details.
  15. Revell 2019

    Omni is part of Horizon, which bought Hobbico's RC assets IIRC. And they are in Champaign, Ill..
