MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. 1972 coronet(john shoe) Exactly what I was talking about. You got it right on the Money. ON Saturday nights they would play for an example " Ted Nugent live, or Dave Mason concert from somewhere, etc. We would hook up our 8 track tape recorders( cost 69.95 back then from Radio Shack) ,put in a blank 90 min 8 track, and record it for playing in our cars when cruising. I think I still have the tapes in my closet. All cool stuff that you would never hear on top 40 stations. Iggy pop developed his fans that way! Free publicity w/o paying the promotional fees. Brilliant!
  2. It has to be the Cosma Ray Corvette( MPC kit released 1966 or 1967 , never reissued), or ( I'm going on out on a big limb here) Carl Casper phone booth "t" by MPC. I just looked at my show rod book last night and this is what I speculate it would be!
  3. Yeah Tim K with the "Streaker Vette " coming back, didn't the MPC Cosma Ray use those underpinnings? Only have to tool the non-stock body, interior, wheels then and copy the engine and chassis. I think it is the "Mission Impossible' Coronet convertible though
  4. Joe Z, we lost a cat that we loved a year ago! We know what it feels like to lose a loved one. They are part of the family. They help us Humans with our nurturing skills , then they are gone! May God bless your pet, Fmeep and send healing graces down to you and your family.
  5. WABX in Detroit played the songs on the albums that you didn't hear on the top 40 stations . The "alternative" Rock station that catered to the people into mary jane.
  6. Thanks Tim Boyd for showing us this one. I wouldn't have guessed that kit proposal in a million years. Dennis Doty has aged well after 50 years. Take care!
  7. Do not buy any used ford truck. The undercab pinch welds are not sealed with any sealer and the cab corners and wheel wells rust out when dirt gets in there then gets wet from snow and rain. The rockers rust out at 100k miles. I know this because I own one. 2011 ford f-150 , not aluminum body.
  8. welcome back Snake45(Richard). Hope all is well and you are on the road to recovery! God bless!
  9. Justin Porter, I recall when the 1963 Chevy II wagon kit was out, OH how you raved how they were flying out of your shop at the time! And you reordered and sold another case! What changed your attitude? When I worked in retail , when our competition was blowing out a certain product for a certain price ( lower than us) we were supposed to price match it!( no profit in that, and the competition usually didn't have it in stock anyway!) (bait and switch? I don't know") So if Walmart has the Sand Shark for 25.00 retail, just don't put it on the shelves , or order it! For your customers walking in your shop, they have to take home "Something" for you to keep surviving.($$$$$$) Now Back to the regular scheduled programing " the fabulous 1/25th MPC 1968 Dodge Coronet convertible" with trailer that has never been reissued since 1968. Thank you Round 2 for this kit offering! Now I don't have to buy the SMS resin body at 45.00 I can get a complete kit with Chrome, Glass, trailer, and kit enhancements for that price! Justin, you better order for your for your customers right now ! It is going to sell out its 5,000 kit run fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. It must have been Dennis Doty! as far as the car, I'll guess the Jordan Playboy, Muntz Jet or a Hudson Jet?
  11. AFX, don't be shy, go knock on the door and ask permission to go look at it and take pictures. give him a copy of you drivers license to make him fell at ease.
  12. Alison, if that was you at the club meeting last week Friday, then welcome! Hope all is well, look forward to the next club meeting on June 17th,2022 at the DISC. Theme is muscle cars! see you then!
  13. Welcome Joe I'm a little southwest of you in Highland!
  14. MisterNNL ,IIRC, I think someone said this car actually ran in the movie"Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow" from 1959. I haven't watched it yet on U-tube.
  15. Hey Snake45, get well soon! Now you'll have time to catch up on all those Snake-fu projects you have been wanting to do. Remember there is no one who can fill your shoes like you do ,Grasshopper! Model on and get well! Or vise-versa? God Bless
