I like the first episode......Jay was saying good things about first gen Mustangs (GT 350 main focus) and since I am in the middle of having my 66 Mustang 2+2 full resto I was happy for the positive press!!! I'll never sell my Mustang.....but nice to know what I am putting into is not a total waste of $$$. I'll check week 2 out.
I was privilege to meet the R2 guys Sat at NNL. I have talked and e-mail with John G for many years but never met. And all I can say is these guys are doing a great job. Deora is coming back with all the goodies like bubble back and bed cover!! John truly surprised me with a 'yellow' Kat from AMT for the help over the years.....really humbled me.
I agree with Tim.......... I have only missed a few shows since 1983. At one time our group from Charlotte got so large we rented a BIG RV to attend. I do miss the huge toy/model sales floor. Last year I really didn't buy anything at all.....but had a GREAT time visiting with folks. But change is the only constant........
One thing when you are looking for a 1/1 car to measure and photograph......the owner must allow you to touch, climb all over and at times tape materials to the subject to get shapes and profiles correct. So at times, owners of really valuable vehicles, have a no touch rule......the 1/1 must also be convenient or near other subjects you can study too. I have no first hand info on the S&H car....but this is how it was years ago when I helped out with a few vehicles. 3 model cars in the RM line all lived within a mile of each other in NC......3 got to help with. So it can be a combination of 'whys'.
