  1. Miss Deal copy right, is it really THAT old ?

    Around 1976/1977 there was a Christmastime liquidator-type place set up in the old WT Grant store near where I grew up. It was called something like "The Ugly Toy Store" and they had all their product displayed in cut-open cases in piles. They had TONS of the Aurora Racing Scenes stuff, and my mom bought me the Speed Shop and a few other packs like the drivers and the mechanic. I remember they had the car stuff like the bodies and engines too, but I didn't get any of those. It was the only store I ever saw any of those kits in. My sister got Barbie and Ken stuff from the 1976 Olympics, so those should fit that '76-'77 timeline too.
  2. ┬┐Monza

    All Monza 2+2 promos are from MPC.
  3. Amazon pop up on site

    Haven't seen what he's describing, but do think a month or so ago there was some kind of adware on this site (no proof it was here, but would only have issues after looking at the forum) that would redirect to a scam page. This was happening in Safari on an up-to-date Mac. Only look at the forum in Chrome now with cookies blocked, and haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary lately.
  4. AMT Modified Stockers

    No, that sheet is for the '67 Falcon annual. Same basic kit, but there are part and detail differences.
  5. AMT Modified Stockers

    Nice build!
  6. AMT Modified Stockers

    This one is started, and it's possible it remains the only Falcon funny car kit I've seen in person. Finally got a '69 annual a couple weeks ago...it's lightly started, but I have been looking for a reasonably priced one for years. Now need to make time to compare the annual to this funny car....

    Quick pic of the Falcon Funny Car box.
  8. New items appearing on Hobby Lobby shelves

    OK, thanks. Will watch for it here in Wisconsin.
  9. New items appearing on Hobby Lobby shelves

    Saw the AMT Pepper Shaker '57 Chevy today too. Has anyone spotted the AMT '69 Oldsmobile 442?
  10. The later (starting in 1964 or so) Jo-Han steelies are fantastic! There are regular depth and deep ones (in Petty '64 Plymouth and others) and they look like real ones shrunk down to 1/25 scale.
  11. Agree. Think these wheels look great on old AMT wire-axle hot rods!
  12. What's the One Part You Hoard?

    Tires!
  13. Wheel I.D. Help, Please

    Think the chrome wires are from the original-issue AMT Deuce roadster. The one from 1959 in the yellow box. That's probably where the Moon discs are from too. Tires in your pics are from something else...
  14. Wheel I.D. Help, Please

    You are correct.
  15. AMT Modified Stockers

    Yes, they probably just cut the steel deeper to remove the stock grille bars and create that flat area.
