      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

  1. High octane added a post in a topic Illegal Street Racing..   

    Wow, that's a scary verdict. I've done some street racing back-in-the-day and got caught a couple of times also. Just last summer I had a great opportunity to blow-the-doors-off a '55 Chevy as we were both side by side at a light, however now they also tow away your car too. Not my car! Besides, I've been there and done that, even got stopped for drag racing in downtown Chicago one night also when racing against a Corvette from Texas. Ah yes, the good old days.

    An old fart? Well you make a good point there, and I'm happy and lucky to have reached my age as a lot of people are less fortunate.

    Close enough is good for me as well. After all, how much of the engine do we really see???

    An armload of stuff? Not really but I had a great time seeing a lot of old friends, I was able to sell a kit that I had brought, and I got some great Hot Wheels for my grandson. Afterwards I went to lunch with some great friends to the Tilted Kilt.

    Revell can put off production for as long as they want as I haven't even opened my '29 Model A Roadster or '30 Model A Coupe kits as of yet. I have other things to build.

    It was good to see BigTruck Ken at the Du Page show today along with Dean Milano, and many other guys I've known over the years. Didn't find anything interesting for my "stash" but I did pick up some Hot Wheels for my grandson. Then went to the Tilted Kilt with the guys for lunch.

    Testors make a Hemi Orange in spray cans.

    That Dart looks really nice Chris and I like the bronze metallic color also. I have three cans of that paint in my stash, guess I'll have to paint a Mopar  that color soon. I just love dem Mopars!

    I saw Ed Sexton from Revell this morning at a local swap meet, and I didn't even bother to ask him 'bout the '29 Roadster and '30 Model A Coupe. One vendor had a '30 Coupe kit and was open to offers. I guess someone one the bay is selling one for $100 and that's not the "asking" price from what I've heard.

    Ron, the old magazines from the 60's and 70's are a lot better than the magazines you'll find on today's racks. I won't even take a subscription for free, and I just passed up an offer to a fairly decent mag for only a $1 an issue. I don't need to collect any more magazines, and I've been readin' them since the early 60's when the teacher would catch me with one of those "little" magazines inside my open text book.

    Ah those Mercs, I was thinkin' the '49 - '51. Yeah those mid-50's Mercs would be great!
  14. High octane added a post in a topic Next up from Moebius ?   

    I think that we already have enough 50's Mercurys.

    There's a Revell '29 Ford Roadster kit still sitting on the shelf of my local Hobby Lobby as well.
