  1. His marques are splendid ! That's a big hunk of a cat ! @youpey , what's his name ? How old ?
  2. I'm digging on that Celica quite a bit ; I especially like its paint colour -- reminds me of Chrysler's GB2 Glacial Blue ( Plymouth ) / Light Blue Metallic ( Dodge ) . There used to be a lot of those Celica's of that era / design around here in the U.S. in the 70's - 80's , being especially popular during the gas shortages of 10/1973 - 03/1974 and 1979-1980 . Too bad about that front panel ; disappointing (on their end) , truly . Perhaps --room permitting-- you can reinforce it with a length of uncoiled paper clip and epoxy ? Keep up the great work ! Cheers !
  3. Handsome young man you've got ❤️! It's amazing how well our feline superiors tend to get-on in spite of any disabilities (obvious impairments or not) ; it's their defence mechanism . My beloved Molly Anne ( 17.05.2002 - 11.08.2019 ) was blind since she was 6 months of age ; she could only discern dark-and-light . She got around perfectly after about 5 months of recovery (which I helped her with : "Use your whiskers , super girl !" as I lifted her on-and-off the couch) . I wish for you many happy years of companionship with Shammy !
  4. Another 'Tæo-ised' album cover : Hot Rats- Frank Zappa (1969)
  5. I've got one of those in the stash . It's a great kit , in spite of --as you've stated-- some of its necessary compromises ( spotlight improperly-placed , for an instance ) . Eventually , mine's going to be built as a retired police car ; LASO in particular . Was this --or its 9C1 iteration-- ever reissued ? IIRC , it was last seen 'new' in c.1994 .
  6. I'm digging it , man ! Its desert base along with the kit reminds me of my 4th birthday cake (1974) . Very cool ! IIRC , that Baja Humbug started its life as a Palmer 1963 "Precision" kit of a stock V.W.
  7. Ah ! That makes perfect sense ! Thanks much , my man !
  8. Esoteric inquiry here ; does anyone know what the 'CA' translated to in that old COX phone prefix ? I'm guessing it was 'CApitol' ( '32' ) ... Also note the last-four-digits : '3300' , just like the address ! Coincidence ?
  9. Excellent colour choices , @mrmike! I especially like the Big Bad Blue paint -- absolutely perfect . The modified roll cage is spot-on , too... reminds me quite a bit of a friend's CJ-8 and its roll bar ( his Jeep had a Chevy 383 with a very-hard-shifting 700-R4 ) . Beautiful work !
  10. Thanks much ! I love how that patch becomes a heart-shape when he tucks-in his left arm .
  11. Thistle be great ! Certainly I'm not alone in wondering if : - Update the transmission to a 4-speed ( all 1964 4-4-2's were 4-speeds ) - Include clear headlamps to affix-atop the moulded-on lamps ( instead of modifying the stock grille ) I've got the F-85 / Cutlass drop-top on order ---- a companion hardtop in 4-4-2 livery will be nice .
  12. Of all of his 'regular' offerings during the 1965-1972 era , the two which most impressed me were the 1971 Demon 340 Six Pack and the 1972 Demon 340 with the Paxton blower .
  13. The Lunar New Year ( colloq. , 'Chinese New Year' ) was on 12.02 (a Friday this year) . A three-day-weekend should've provided all of the libations over that span 😉 . Model Roundup exhibits March 2021 --non-specific date-- as its guesstimated release .
  14. Nice 'Bee ! It looks like it wants to lurch-forward ; completely restless sitting in that driveway . Did Norm's shop 'Super Tune' that bad boy ?
  15. What can I possibly state here to possibly and properly convey how much I LOVE this awesome build ? I feel that , perhaps , a simple , understated "love" and "awesome" are somehow sufficient for this purpose . That water bottle ! WOW ! I can just imagine its driver chugging on it after a mind-bending rowing-of-gears on the interstate ! Keep them coming , @Steve H! What's next ? Dare I suggest a 1960 Ranchero based-upon the AMT '60 Starliner ?
