    Nightmares, it'll just give me nightmares.
    After living in New Hampshire for 20 years and "meeting" a few of our pleasant and polite State Troopers I can safely say that I don't miss the Mass. Troopers at all. Good luck with the model.

    The best website to get license plate artwork is http://www.licenseplates.tv/
    They have an incredible variety of locations and years. (with the exception of California. California sells "vintage" plates so they don't want any aftermarket company selling them because California would lose that revenue). 
    You can type in what you want and the site will create a small PNG image the you can copy and resize and then print it on photo paper. I make a variety of samples on one 4x6 photo paper and print it out and then cut out the one I decide to use. 
    I spend a bunch of time during each build coming up with license plate ideas and then save the samples to my computer so I have them all at the end.

    I have faith in you Gregg. I was editor of the New England Dragway Newsletter for a few years, so I know the pitfalls, landmines and costs. You have my support and my sympathy. Publishing is a very hard way to make a buck.

    Gregg, I got your letter the other day. I had already renewed through Golden Bell. When I renewed I put a note (same note in two places actually) saying that it was for a renewal for my current account number.
    At that point Golden Bell started sending me two copies of the magazine, so it was pretty apparent that they had not seen or read by note about it being a renewal. 
    Problem is your renewal notice came while I was in the hospital have hip surgery. I won't be able to get the computer that has the info about the payment until I can walk up the stairs to my office, which won't be until next week at the earliest. 
    Just so you know, Golden Bell doubled up the last three issues.
    I'm actually glad you got rid of GBP. This is not the first time they screwed up my subscription.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Glen, doing well here. One last four-day in-hospital chemo treatment next week and then I'm done. Went back to work a few weeks ago.

    I built this kit when they first came out and I still have the finished model. I'm still amazed at how well a kit in 1/32 went together and how good the finished model looks. It was my first experience with photo-etched parts. I always wished those kits had been more popular so that Tomy would have come out with some other kits.

    Just saw this car in an episode of The Rockford Files on Netflix.

    Rhapsody is good, had it for years. I liked their system that recommended other music I might like based on what I was listening to. It turned me on to a lot of stuff I had never heard before.
    Spotify is also good.
