  1. Its defiantly not a Johan I have a promo and a old build up of those both needing parts and repairs dose not match a Johan at all. Palmer had some pretty crude kits but some were at least decent subjects if nothing else.
  2. I have always liked to older trucks looks myself...same for the other vehicles made. I think the very late 50s through mid 70s era had some of the best looking and classy vehicles made. I also lost interest in Nascar for the same reason...when everything looked the same it seemed there was no point to me and lost its luster. I also think when many iconic vehicle went to front wheel drive they lost theirs as well or at least to me. As for big trucks I love the older ones for their brute power look.
  3. That is very nice bill..! I have the same passion for family owned replicas ether models or promos of them. Many I already have but need parts and work others Ill have to try to get a hold of if possible..??? Wont be easy ether...some were never made in scale plastics...others are too expensive if one can find them. I have a few done already but a very long way to go yet and we once had some great and rare vehicles once in the family too.
  4. Cant remember what year one we had but think it was the 70 that had a 400ci 4 speed in her...all black. That thing would run. My plan is to make replicas of them and other vehicles we once owned...we had some great ones over the years in the family. I have some of them but they need parts and work yet.
  5. I love Pontiacs and Grand Prixs grew up with them in the family we had a 64,67,69,70,71,72,and a 83. Stunning car there..!
  6. Cool...! My very first real car was a 72 Toronado...it had a vinyl top and a vent in the trunk lid. id love to find a 72 like it in a model or promo sometime to add to my family owned replica collection of scale vehicles. Been working on the replica collection for years now. Johan made some really cool kits and promos even though they had their issues. Nice kit.
  7. Just stunning work ...beautiful build..! its a real masterpiece for sure.
  8. I have a kit of it if interested...? pretty sure its the same year one but will have to check .
  9. Very nice..! My family owned a few real ones a 64,69,70,71,85....so far I have the 69,70 to restore once I find what they will need. Cool build and save..!!!
  10. Those extras will be must haves for my diorama projects..nice going Round2..!
  11. I have the 55 Pontiac..no interior came with it. Mine is also missing the chromed parts sadly..the AMT 55 Chevy kit can offer the interior and chassis with a little work I did one that way once. The one i have right now missing the chromed parts I plan to make a 55 Safari wagon from if I can find the chromed parts to. Ill use the AMT 55 Nomad kit for parts .
  12. A big thank you to Al Rich..Thats4you on a great smooth trade deal....great trader guys..!
