    I miss automotive color myself.  My wife and I have driven back and forth to California several times, and she's noticed the lack of brighter colors on cars on the interstate.  Reminds me of a description of a group of librarians in a novel by Sarah Bird: "...all of them garbed in three-piece suits in a rainbow of hues running from clam to cement."

    Snake: Check out Scenes Unlimited, also.  He reproduces several sets of American spoke wheels, and the quality and service are outstanding!

    The most I've ever laid out was $95 for a complete '61 Ford Starliner annual a few years back.  On the other hand, I once paid .25 for an MPC '68 GTO at a swap meet, and $8 for a complete
    AMT '66 Mustang 2+2, but that was a ways back...

    I like that wheel/tire/hub cap idea!

    Must be tough living in a place so flat and barren...

    I've got an Ipod classic with slightly over 21,000 songs on it.  It's plugged into a small shelf system stereo with a docking station, and I keep it on shuffle most times.  I've got everything on it from Americana to soul and R&B, garage rock to a few Broadway show tunes, '60s folk to Grateful Dead to some metal.  '50s, '60s, '70s and on up.  Never a dull moment, no commercials, and I'm in charge of the playlist!

    That's a terrific model!  Great job on the chop, paint, and the door lock buttons are a nice touch!  Looks perfect from any angle.

    Very pretty--the color suits the car very well.

    1966 442 hub caps
    Has anyone ever seen a source for '66 Oldsmobile 442 (dog dish) hub caps ?  I could use the Revell '69 Nova pieces, but they seem kind of oversize to me, and I'd really like to find the right thing.  Any ideas?
