    hey Rick, even though I am a pro street nut, its refreshing to see totally stock non musclecars being built out there. doing a bang up job on it. now, when you get it done, drive it on over to Tubb's emporium and we can hack it up real good... hehe

    blower and hat color.
    I am getting ready to use a resin 1471 blower with a modern hat. I know most of you guys cover the hat in carbon fiber. I stink at decaling, so, what color do I paint the blower casing and the hat. like they say on Jeopardy, be specific. I was going to do flat black on the hat and metalizer magnesium on the casing.... am I close?
    thanks in advance.

    true Mark, I am waiting also. the roof on the kit now is a hardtop, from my recollection, most of the hemi cars were sedans. will they change the roof. that would be the cool thing to do.... not to steer the post away from it's original content. you can't get $8 kits at shows anymore. have to get me some.

    remember, that 330 should have everything you need to convert the new 65 Plymouth to an A990 hemi  car. including the roof, if you are into roof swapping. I will have to get there for a few of them.
    just to clarify, the "BLUE" car was a max wedge car. "color me gone". the red car was the "ramchargers" and was the hemi version. lots of different parts in these. grille, hood scoop and front seats to name a few. I used up all my hemicars. the "maverick" version was slightly different too.

    hey Jeff, if you look up at the top of the page, you will see an envelope, this represents PM's, or personal messages. you can talk thru here with someone else in private. you should have a red box by your envelope with the #1 in it. click the envelope and you will open up your mailbox. hope this is accurate.

    hey Mark, one source is the 69 GTX kit. nicely detailed 440 with single 4 and a 6 BBL, 4 speed. the dart kits, 68 and 69, including the 68 hemi dart has a nice 440 motor in them also. the only 340 motors I can think of are the ones in the 71 duster and the T/A challenger, but that one is a 1/24th scale. also, the duster 340, people say is too small.
    revell has a few kits that has 440's, the 69 charger, possibly the 69 Daytona, done know if the reissued 68 charger has a 440 or hemi. I am sure you will get more detailed responses than mine.
    oh yea. the AMT 69 Daytona also has a 440, but the above mentioned ones are much better.

    thanks guys. i have given plenty to the VA hospitals, local prisons, assisted living centers. it may sound greedy, but i dont give them the old ones. Ron, i wish i knew a younger hot rodder. he would get them all. most of the kids i know get everything on the net. only thing i use ebay for is reference pictures. never bought or sold, maybe i should start.
    Bill, i will get a list together for you. would you be interested in SSDI's also (super stock and drag illistrated)?

    what to do with old car magazines
    hey guys, I have a very large stash of car magazines. the last couple of times I have tried to sell my doubles off, I had very few takers. I was as low as $2 apiece for Hot Rod from the 60's, good shape covers still in tack. what sparked my curiosity was a gentleman who wanted an old car ad in the magazine and offered me a dollar for it but he wanted me to rip the ad out of the magazine. Buddy, it's $2 for the whole magazine!! anyways, I was thinking of going thru and ripping major ads and articles out of them and selling them. I hate to tear up nice magazines, but it seams that the market for them has diminished greatly, but people will drop a buck apiece for muscle car ads. not sure what to do. my room looks like a hoarder lives there... in which he does, but i'm really getting buried.

    been watching this James. have one in the planning stages. I have to start paying attention to the names, didn't realize it was you who was building this. shouldn't admit that I guess. if it's not a problem, could you bring it to the next meeting and I can copy...er, ask some "how did you do that" questions.

    awesome build!! cool not seeing any engine parts thru the hood. don't see that too often. did you modify the suspension at all to get your ride height. it's spot on.
