  1. 1965 Plymouth A990

    that came out awesome Tom. very clean build. as much as a mopar guy that I am, I only have the Belvedere I. I have none of the race cars. hay have to get me one or 9 of them. one of my favorite mopars. look forward to seeing the others.
  2. 1965 Plymouth A990

    really a beautiful build going on here Tom. getting back to your header question, which headers to use? that depends,. the spaghetti looking ones came on the car along with 6 cylinder full exhaust when delivered. most racers yanked the exhaust off the car (of course) and most of them found the big long tube headers cumbersome while working under the car. a lot of them got rid of these also (that explains why those long headers are so rare) and replaced them with the more conventional headers while racing the cars. I did verify this, to the best of my ability with some old super stock and drag illustrated magazines from way back from my collection. so this is what I believed happened and how they ran these cars. so if you are building a racer, which it looks like you are, I would use the more common header. if you are building a car right off the floor, use the other ones. kind of a long way to get there, hope you get it. I would post some pictures, but I keep all my pictures on my computer and cant figure out how to post them. darn technology... one more note. doesn't matter, but I know they ran long collectors back then too. hope this helps, just one guys opinion. keep up the good work.
  3. ‘67 Chevelle Pro Street - WIP

    really looking good Hotrod. love the blue, its coming together nice. I have a few of these, never put one together. too busy robbing parts from them. 1 comment if I may, you should trim your parts of mold lines and extra flash. only takes a little time and it will make for a much better build. its really noticeable on the exhaust. sorry if I am stepping on any toes.

  6. Mini tubbed 55 Chevy

  7. Mini tubbed 55 Chevy

    thanks, this was green at one time. it stalled because I started to look at colors of 55's on the net. do you know how many 55's are on the net?! really want to do it black. we will see. gotta brush up on my skills a little more.
  8. Show them cuda's

    here is one of mine, started a while ago, maybe it will find its way back to the bench in 2019.
  9. Mini tubbed 55 Chevy

    hey Brian, glad I found you here, facebook is too hard for me to follow. the 55 is looking really nice, as usual. I see you posted up your 67 camaro, now you need to let people feast their eyes on that nova you built.
  10. Mini tubbed 55 Chevy

    agreed, you build a great model. maybe I should bring out mine from looooong ago
  11. '65 Plymouth A990 questions

    ok, so the link only gets you so far, when you get to the page, on the left side, click on "finished cars", then click on the 65 Plymouth picture. that will bring you to a 65 Plymouth build at the top of the page. Bob Tyler's factory race hemi "Goldfinger" there are more builds down the page, but I figured this would be the best one.
  12. '65 Plymouth A990 questions

    EDIT - see the next post also, the link only takes you so far.... I know its not the car you are looking for, but if you want correct A990 reference shots. go here... http://www.moparsbymosher.com/main.htm Moshers restores old race cars to a tee. it will not get you S and M's race car, but it may help out in other areas. some of the pictures are not showing up for me, hope they do for you. and I hope it helps even a little bit.
  13. Name That Tune....

    WOW... haven't been here in years.... thought it may have died off.... Cold wind blowsThe Gods look down in anger,On this poor child
  14. possibly the AMT (?) 71 road runner. kind of hard to find. I may have what you are looking for, not 100% sure, haven't opened up that kit in years. I will see what I have. oh, maybe the monogram 71 GTX, but that is at 1/24th scale.
