    GM did build V8 Monzas (same chassis) with 262 CI engines, I heard Cali cars got a 350, but can't confirm.

    Hart's Parts resin has a 71 hidden headlamp grill that fits the AMT kit, will it work? http://www.hartspartsresin.com/resin-parts-list/amt

    That car is either a 74 / 75, or an updated earlier car. (very common thing to do)  I don't think there were any significant differences  between the 71 and 72's.

    And a Grumpy Jenkins version too!  (AMT may have the rights, they did the 66 Nova toy one)

    Agreed.

    If you want to see the "tailpipe" on any electric car drive to the power plant and you'll see it, about 200 feet tall belching  black smoke.

    I drove it from central Indiana to Niagara Falls with the Manx Club last June, 1400 miles in 5 days. The photo is from Mid America Funfest, also last June, In Efington  Ill. Always drive it, I don't own a trailer. The red one belongs to a friend that lives nearby.

    Bare metal foil and clear red or clear amber paint works for me.

    Odd that it's neither fish or fowl, not a cheapo sedan or an A 990 car.  Me? I'm adding a Hemi and looking for those "Black Arrow" decals.

    I bought the touring car, but a fire truck just doesn't do anything for me. I'll be watching to see if they do others.

    My dads father drove Chryslers, my mom's parents drove Fords, and Dad worked at GM and had Chevys and moved up to Pontiacs. My uncle Bud drove  lots of Mopars. My first car was a VW dune buggy, and my first job was at an Import car dealer that sold Triumphs, Alfa Romeos, Fiats and Subarus. My wife was driving a Mustang when we married. Somehow I grew into just loving cars, any car. I dislike unreliable cars, and the ones that have done me wrong are Triumphs and Hyundais. I also dislike new cars, the styling is terrible and you can't work on them. Of all the cars I've owned my favorites were a 56 Chevy and a 69 Camaro, and my Manx buggy that I've owned over 45 years.
    If I hit the loto tomorrow I'm buying another 69 Camaro.

    Where will they find 500 mile long extension cords?
  13. Craig Irwin added a post in a topic Moebius 65 Belvedere I   

    I don't think there were any Max Wedge cars built in 65.

    My Meyers Manx dune buggy, I built it in 1970 while in high school, and drive it more now than ever.
