Another member and I here have a mutual long time friend with a more nightmarish accumulation than this . He is now disabled and in a home . His collection sits in 2 houses . One he abandoned in 1990 while leaving 2 floors , a Basement and an Attic containing Model cars . His new home from 1990 is now sitting idle packed with a newer stash . We know the same fate is in the future concerning this situation barring disaster . God Bless . I have interest , not much money Thanx ..
I've been a Forum Member since 2006 on a few dedicated to Model Cars . This one is the only place where trades have soured for me . The first one , I tried to warn this community about a bad trader . I held nothing back including how my mistake created a fiasco . I admitted my fault in the nightmare . Many members berated me for reporting and expecting the other party accountable . Some members agreed with me . This was resolved to a point . One of my trade partners did without . He did not get what he wanted . I made it right for him . I am out , lesson learned . A couple years later , a member defending me and I negotiate a trade . This dragged on and on . He Posted he wanted to trade off another interesting item I was seeking . I had something he wanted once again . We agreed to make a 2 for one . few years have passed now . I feel so stupid I did box these up . Lesson learned . My question is , should I have the audacity to inform a moderator will I still be a Bad Guy ? Since I am out only my time and troubles locating and packaging my end of the deal , I will avoid this . No , I will not divulge names as you know who you are .. Thanx ..
You do get what you pay for . Lower price equals more work . In the early days of resin , this was an excellent model . Modelhaus set the standards . Jimmy Will tell you himself , if you want pre-trimmed , pay me more . It is about exchanging time into money to earn a living . Thanx ..
I did two internet searches . The above pic is a mid '60's . These , the Silver set in the foreground are what I am referring to . They interlock and one cannot be removed without the other . This style is what I remember working on '58 - '61 inline dual quad MoPars . Thanx ..
I sent this manifold to someone to resin cast way back . Whatever happened , I dunno ?? The proper Air Cleaners were in an AMT kit at one time . I have none and I seek these too . Not the individual low profile chromed affair most of the existance of these . Rather the two were joined . Both were secured to the Carbs with wing nuts . An exaggerated Oval shape at that . Thanx ..
