The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
I have this kit too, only molded in orange and black. bought it several years ago at a swap meet. no box, but I believe it's all there. I'm planning on making mine into a NASCAR Daytona.......someday. LOL
I'm doing NASCAR, or possibly a USAC Superbird from the JoHan kit, using the AMT GTX kit for the chassis. the JoHan kits can still be found and at a reasonable price, but it may take some time and research. also, you don't need an entire kit, only the body, nose and wing. just about everything else can be lifted from any one of these AMT kits: Dodge Superbee, Plymouth GTX, Plymouth Road Runner and any 68-70 Dodge Charger.
yea, nice build. I too have the PL Torino in my closet. maybe it's time to get it out and BUILD IT?? well, that and finish my Dan Gurney Superbird, my Petty Charger and my #41 Al Unser Charger. oh man, now I'm depressed and overwhelmed. too many projects, so little time.......
the pic of the real car may have been taken at either Indianapolis Raceway Park or the Indiana State Fairgrounds. both of which held USAC races back then.
Tom O'Brien has been a Mopar dealer in Indy since 1933. first with DeSoto and Plymouth and later with Chrysler/Plymouth and now at our location, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge in Greenwood. in 1964, Tom O'Brien Co consisted of two locations: Virginia Ave (later moved to Greenwood) and the 'new' Northside Chrysler-Plymouth on the northside of Indianapolis on Keystone Ave.
it was common in those days for drivers/owners to pick up sponsorship from local car dealers when coming to town for races. this is why I feel pretty confident it's the same "Tom O'Brien Co".
