    "The Little Old Lady from Pasadena" sounds like an interesting car song project. My question is the lyrics of Jan & Dean`s song which was released in 1964 (later recorded the Beach Boys 1966) they never truly stated which model Dodge or engine displacement the little old lady was terrorizing Colorado Boulevard in.
    Little Old Lady From Pasadena lyrics

    It's the little old lady from Pasadena...

    The little old lady from Pasadena
    (Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
    Has a pretty little flowerbed of white gardenias
    (Go granny, go granny, go granny, go)
    But parked in a rickety old garage
    Is a brand-new, shiny red, super-stock Dodge
    The song doesn't mention the model make or engine, only that it's was a 'Super Stock Dodge". So, in order to match the Jan and Dean song which full size 1964 Dodge are they talking about?  I`m assuming it was either  a 330, 440 or 500 Polara.  And ,I assume the power plant was 426 Stage II/Stage III "Max Wedge". All input, insight, feedback or suggestions are welcomed.

    Cal-Trac Traction Bars
    Looking for a set of Cal-Trac style traction bars. They were popular with 1967 thru 1970 Camaro enthusiast. I do believe these appeared in the MPC `70 1/2 Camaro (full bumper) kit. I do not know if they were kitted anywhere else.

    I working on a Moper wing car. The two vertical uprights and the horizontal bar have to be aligned and square up before the solvent sets and I only have tow hands..I need a window of time to get it all looking correct by for the solvent sets.

    What is the working time (if any) with these products...quite often you need some to to adjust or square up parts before the solvents sets.

    Plastic Solvent Cement_Plastruct Weld And Other Solvent Type Cements
    Is Plastruct Inc - Plastic Weld Plastic Solvent Cement still available. My LHS no longer stocks it. And, I`m haveing a challenging time finding it on-line.
    And, since I`m on the topic how do the others similar plastic cement acetone (CH3)2CO content solvents (Tamiya Extra Thin Cement, Tenax-7R, Ambroid Pro-Weld, Micro-Mark Same Stuff etc.) stack up as far as bonding power and bonding time.
    A friend loves the thin brush applicator that comes with the Tamiya Extra Thin cement; he says its like a "mini paint brush", unlike the much larger bristle brush that comes with the others solvent type cements.

    Thanks Mark I appropriate you dropping some knowledge on us. I would truly hope that since Round 2 has to go through the expense to backdating the Vega I hope they opt to do a `71 or `72 Vega. It will leave options for a Motion Super Vega as well as a Grumpy Toy built option.

    Just curious has there very been a `71 Vega kitted.. inquiring minds want to know. I belive that the Pro Stock "Grumpy’s Toy X" Vega campaigned by renowned Grumpy Jenkins, was a `72.

    "Grumpy`s Toy X " was one of the early cars to take advantage of NHRA rule changes in ’72 that allowed for lighter cars fitted with small block Chevy V-8 engines.

    I agree with you Bob muscle car version of the Vega would sell FAR better than a factory stock one. Since Round 2 is contemplating back dating the kit how many of you would be open to seeing a `71 Baldwin Motion "Super Vega".

    Ditto on the `71 Vega...if they are going to the expense to back date the body then the `71 Bruce Larson Vega is certainly the way to go if the insist on kiting a Pro-Stock car.

    Vintagedragcar thanks for the info I did not know the "rubber marks" came on any other decal sheet. Just curious, to your knowledge, does the "rubber marks" appear on any other decal sheets besides the Revell `69 Nova...inquiring minds would like to know.
