    If I had either, (and I might; not even sure what's in the stash ) they would have both been robbed for parts on other projects ! Sorry, my earlier post was made 'before morning coffee '

    What we have here, is your failure to more specific. You mentioned 'old' stock car kits. I responded with my experience. Instead of explaining more specifically what kits you referred to, you got upset.  No need to get your panties in a bunch.   I'm so sorry, This ole 66 year old bows to your expertise on oldness.

    I have sent thousands of wheels and trim rings to Bob's Paint and Custom Chrome, both chrome and plastic an recommend him highly. I soak all parts in bleche white overnight, then in dawn / water overnight, then rinse and dry.  I had problems in the beginning, but Bob worked with me and this solved my problems. Plus, I like the fact you don't have to mount your parts, he does that for you. Good prices, great turn around. In the past I have dealt with other chrome guys, with mixed results..........Steven Zimmerman

    Cracker Barrel ! Wife and I went out to et there, browsing through the gift shop I found the Lindberg '61 Chevy Impala, both hdtp and conv...That was several years ago, never found another model kit there...........'Z'

    I go to several swap meets a year, from Jersey to Michigan; those old NASCAR kits are EVERYWHERE for around $5  each, and they don't sell...........Why would they re issue when the market is glutted ?

    What sold in the past is not always a parameter of what will sell currently.

    If companies could actually predict "what would sell" and what would not, no one would ever go out of business, and every one of them would make a profit. I will wager that today's model producing companies  spend a lotta moolah, probably more than ever before, on research and development. We ALL 'think' we know what would sell, based on our own preferences; unfortunately , in the real world, it doesn't work that way......Ask any resin caster about this............'Z'
