    The Illinois Toy & Plastic Show is on the 28th of this month (Feb.) from 9 a.m. to 3 00 p.m. at the Du Page County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois, and has always been a good swap meet. Hope to see some of you there.

    I think that there was a guy in the Dayton, Ohio area that made a working Christmas Tree a few years back. He's on the Spotlight Message Board occasionally.

    I also have a '60 Lincoln Continental convertible kit that I picked up several(?) years ago that was still sealed when I bought it. I opened it in the parking lot to check it out after I had purchased it.

    The AMT '59 Lincoln Continental convertible kit was the first one piece body model car kit I got back in Dec. of '59. I really don't know whatever happened to it, but a couple (few?) years ago my brother-in-law was able to find this for me on Evil-bay. It sits in my display case in the box and still un built as this is what really started me into model car building.

    If any of you are not happy with your JoHan kits because of the wrong dash, bad tail lights, missing tires, etc,. feel free to send the entire kit(s) to me and I'll be sure to take good care of them.

    I thought that I had an extra '62 Dodge Dart body in my stash, but it turned out to be the '62 Fury body instead, oh well.
  7. High octane added a post in a topic Gas prices... how low will they go?   

    You got that right Michael as I  made a few laps around the lake in my father-in-law's boat and it cost me plenty to fill up the tank again. Wow!
  8. High octane added a post in a topic Rags   

    We had a demo on using tissues with white glue/water mix last Friday night at our club meeting on making tonneau/bed covers on pickup beds. I didn't watch the demo as I was busy gabbin' with other members. This method could be used to make tarps over engines, cars, etc. as well.

    I believe Preston's Parts sells battery cables.
  10. High octane added a post in a topic Decal help   

    If you're having problems like that with your decals, I suggest that you spray the decal sheets with a couple light coats of clear lacquer and let them dry for 24 hours before using them. This should cure the problem I hope.
  11. High octane added a post in a topic '69 Plymouth GTX   

    I believe that the GTX came with dual horns and they are mounted vertically on the passenger side next to the radiator.

    Really nice job you've done on that Dart Tom, as I just love dem Mopars!
  13. High octane added a post in a topic Gas prices... how low will they go?   

    A lot of people enjoy driving their cars, no matter what they own or how much gas the cars guzzle.
  14. High octane added a post in a topic MJ Engines   

    Wow, extremely nice resin cast engines. It's just too bad that I don't have any use for them as I got rid of all my 1/16th scale kits while "thinnin' the herd."
  15. High octane added a post in a topic Gas prices... how low will they go?   

    It's too bad those prices won't be around this summer when I'll be drivin' my "gas guzzler." Oh well...................
