    I remember this build when it was work in progress...fill in all the nasty snap tabs on the sleeper,using model railroad rivets on the stretch etc.Brian you inspired me to get back into this hobby with this build and to use this kit for my first subject and always been a fan of your work.....hope to see more from ya.....

    I work as a parts manager for a Ford dealer and our biggest nightmare to look parts up for or to work on and if the name alone wasn't bad enough was the Ford Probe.......

    AMT Richard Petty Dodge Sportsman Exhaust
    I actually have one on the bench I have been working on finally , The kit has some minor issues that I have what I think I have worked out except the exhaust , with the headers in place I test fit the exhaust pipe and it no where  near lines up , The headers are to far apart and I have them moved in as far as they go. Anyone have this issue and if so what's the trick that I am over looking?.....Thanks for any info.

    70 1/2 Camaro bumper conversion
    I know there "was" a resin conversion for the 70 1/12 Camaro to convert it to the "Full" bumper style front end,it had a partial header and grille/bumper....any ideas to where I may find one or someone has one they want to get rid of......Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the info!!!! huge fan of Fords involvement in this series ......even though I am a Ford man,Ben I have to agree with you that it was awesome to see the C7R doing so well,always was a fan of Pratt & Miller and Ron Fellows .....they too had a rough beginning like the GT when they first brought out the C5R and second year they were knocking on the Vipers back door and third year dominated ...... nothing like seeing these thoroughbred race cars of beauty run 24 hrs.

    ......She said "Yes'
     .....Some here may or may not know that I am a single dad to the most awesome lil' girl a father could ever ask for and that's part of a huge reason why I haven't really dated seriously or anything because at my age (now 53) and having a daughter still at home (she's now 14) makes it kinda difficult when most people at this age has grown kids , don't get me wrong,I wouldn't have it any other way having Baby Girl still at home,even for the next 20yrs lol ......I did however met a girl who is around my age that not only understand my issue but she has 2 sets of twins still at home 2 16yr boys and two 19yr old girls.
    We been dating for a while and it just amazes me I could find someone that has pretty much the same likes,wants and desires as I and the kids ALL get along and their real dad doesn't have much to do with them for reasons I wont get into and the girls already call me dad and one especially we have become very close.....so with the help of the girls including Baby Girl helped me with sizing and ring hunting and so last night I asked this wonderful woman to marry me and she said "YES".......just wanted to share this and Ohhhh she is into model building as well!!!!!!

    Leaf springs?!?!?!?? ....Harry you musta got one of those "Super Retro Package" s197's......
     
    As far as the "new" '15 up Mustangs go ...we see veeeeeeery little problems with the car here at the dealership which is somewhat unusual when a new design is released,the customers who had purchased the '15 up loves them compared to the s197's ....a real good friend of mine has both a '06 and '15 and he loves both and says that there is great qualities on both but what he finds impressive is the fact his '15 is quicker than his '06 GT and the '15 is a 4 banger....I personally don't see getting rid of my '08 for new Mustang,from the windshield back I love the car,its just I cannot get past the front end,but that's just my opinion.....Cameron just hang in there and reach for your goal as I too went through financial hard times but I did finally get my 'stang.....I am hoping for ya!!!

    This saddens me a whole lot....I know we must all go at some time but Paul was one of those I really enjoyed and loved his work......many of his writing has help me through the years,in fact my first "rock" song ever introduced to was my sisters 45 "Somebody to Love" in '68 and loved his work ever since......the Heavens has many greats now for one heck of a performance.....R.I.P. Paul......
