  1. I agree with the Advertisements being Black Walls . Family Members were Car Sales / Service Professionals . I was a Car Guy since I could Talk . I did pay attention when Grown Ups Spoke . This did not translate into the Frugal Buyer keeping up the White Walls nor the Truck as Pristine . Just the Frugal Buyer spent the Cash for the White Walls until there weren't any . The Premium Tire always did have the Best Materials and gives the most Reliability and Wear . White Wall Tires seem to be Publicly distasteful these days . I constantly see badmouthing . Such as "On Roll Aids" . To myself , seeing a Restoration with Black Walls when it had White Walls Originally and all the Time it was used for Transportation make my Eyeballs Bleed . lol .. Thanx ..

    '62 Valiant

    A Glue Bomb Rescue .. TY Modelhaus for making the FBumper/Grille after 5 Years of Requests . Plus al the other Hen's Teeth they ever cast not limited to this Build . I sure miss them . Color Matched using Chip Books and Advertisements I had access to in the day . It had all the Styline Parts and attachments in the Kit on it . If it was an actual 1:1 , keep this one away from magnets . Enjoy .. Thanx ..

  4. My Grandparents Generation would be happy to se this one . Stunning Replica and Thanx ..
  5. Why eliminate the White Walls ? The Best wearing, Puncture Resistant Premium Tires were Whitewalls . This has : R Bumper , Dual Wipers . Heater . Optioned out and loaded up . Why would a Buyer skimp on tires at the Verge of Nationwide Rationing I ask ? A Yard Ornament won't be useful for other than Scrap during War Time . IMHO you did not live it or understand the times . This is a Perfect Replica ..Thanx
  6. Do you cast the Hood for yourself ? Will you make it available ? I am in for 2 . I am liking your progress here . Thanx
  7. Builds up to a Great addition to ant Imperial Collection . This MoPar Tribute build I spent two months on when the Model King Released the kit . Actual Factory Replica . Yes , don't say it . I admit I am retentive .
  8. Great progress IMHO . Kudos as I am watching this Thanx
  9. You do an incredible job on your Apparatus Conversions Greg . Credit due where credit is due . Thanx
  10. Very nice . The 1:1 Versions' nomenclature is "Circus Wheel" . By changing the Center Cap with the appropriate Emblem they become whatever Car Line Optional upgrade . IIRC , Pintos and Bobcats used the same Rims . Motor Wheels in Detroit was the Manufacturer of these Gems . Excellent Piece and Kudos .. Thanx
  11. There was never saw an Edsel I did not like . Thanx
  12. Just a couple of notes about this AMC Javelin AMX . I am retentive . The Javelin AMX's from '71/'74 came with Engine Tuned Dash Treatment , WAPPED into the Driver's Door on Javelins and Javelin AMX's both . What MY did Corvette Invent this feature ? The Wood Grain pictured here is the Javelin treatment . The Wrap into the Door Dash was "invented" by junkie mtrs what year again ? AL MODERN HVAC Systems are pioneered by AMC . I can go on . ALAS so much for oddball and weird AMC Corp. IMHO .BTW .. In 1957 AMC MADE AND SOLD A 327 V/8 Engines . Chevrolet in 1962 . "Chevrolet did all this first" . Yet I was subject to this undisputable FACT while listening to claims junkie mtrs cast AMC Engines for free ?? How benevolent of them . ,Consider especially the Casting all these with Cubic Inch Displacement Embossed on the sides of these FREE Blocks . Enough of my Advertisement . What a spectacular Replica . KUDOS and a great collector ITEM . The Gold T Stripe will set this off nicely . I would like to share mine . Yours puts mine to shame Thanx NOTE The Packard came on fhe ride
