    WOW, that Starliner is awesome!

    I believe it was the '69 Riviera kit.

    I agree with you Kevin as I'm lookin' to buy a truck next year. Look what the dealers have in the way of trucks these days, more doors, small box, 4 x 4, loaded to the gills with accessories, and price tags of 40, 50, 60, & 70 thousand dollars. That is scary and I see lots of them on the road today.

    Yes, a Hemi is a Hemi so go for it.

    Then you can get the wheels out of a Riviera kit.
  6. High octane added a post in a topic Motivation, wish I could find some.   

    Thought about selling off your models, tools, parts, paints, etc. DON'T do it! Box everything up and put them in the corner or something, but DON'T get rid of your modeling stuff. I did back in 1990 only to find myself starting all over 'bout 7 or 8 years down the road. Boy was I ever sorry. Even if you're in a slump for a few months, at least you'll have your stuff and you can pick up where you left off, or even start a new project.

    You hit the nail on the head Dave when you said: "put your money up." My thoughts exactly.

    After carefully shopping for a new vehicle, washer, dryer, refrigerator, dish washer, etc. and making your choice by yourself or with the help of a salesperson, or reviews from the internet or elsewhere. Then the salesperson wants you to buy a warranty or an extended warranty. By doing so, you are making a money bet that your choice of the item you just purchased is going to break down. That is what's known as gambling and the store should have a casino license to sell you a warranty, because they are betting that your purchase will not break down. Capisce?

    Maybe it was time to buy a new refrigerator Harry, instead of putting money into the one you have. Or was that out of the question?
  11. High octane added a post in a topic muscle cars   

    VERY nice builds Ken, but three of the four are what they call "pony cars."

    Speed City Resins already does a '66 Dodge Dart.

  14. High octane added a post in a topic Concerning the NHRA TV lineup   

    I don't watch modern drag racing at the strip or on TV as it's VERY boring. I watched and raced cars back in the 60's when it was part of the "Golden Years" of drag racing when hard work and innovation was important, and anybody could partake in racing, even with their grandmothers car. Not like these "high dollar" cookie cutter cars that are racing today.
    Last weekend there was "vintage" drag racing at a strip I used to race at, and they had over 500 cars registered from all over the country. I believe the cars had to be 1966 and older and had to have "period correct" wheels as well. It was a blast from the past, and there were gassers galore. I'm sure glad I was there.
