    That was Buick's name for the 225 V6 . This is the same engine , but in an Olds F85 .

    That's awesome ! Apparently their 1965 song inspired more than one car's name (e.g. this original paint 1968 Hemi Barracuda Super Stock) :

    That's where Duel made its appearance originally (1963 or 1964) .

    While not an autobiography , but definitely within the realm of musicians :
    - Up-Tight : The Velvet Underground Story (1983 , Victor Bokris / Gerard Melanga , et al.)
    - Please Kill Me ( the Uncensored Oral History of Punk )  (1996 , ad seq, , Eddie "Legs" McNeil , et al. )

    That's one fine RL21B51 there , S.F.D. ! That Leaning Tower of Power looks right at home under its bonnet ! One of those in black & white with a 3-speed on the column , and you'd have an L.A.S.D. "Patroller Special" , just like the ones my uncle drove back in the day .
    Great job !

    Depends upon how much of the line needs to be eliminated . I know that the C-pillar parting lines on the GSX are mild (e.g. , not as 'offencive' as others') , so I'd suggest that you start with the blue-coloured board , and finish with the lighter pink board . You can use flat black as a "guide coat" in the areas you're sanding / reworking (personally , I use alternating primer or flat colours when reworking an area ; grey primer , red oxide primer , and flat black allow for one to check their progress ; finish up with your choice of matching , final primer colour --grey in your case) .
    Any hobby shop should carry the emery boards . I recommend that you start with the dark blue / light blue & pink / light pink board , that way you have all of the grades you need on one board .

    The most popular tool to use is an emery board . They're available in various grits , just like sandpaper .
    That's what the primer does ; it shows imperfections in addition to its 'regular' job .

    Jerry - That GSX is coming along quite nicely .
    In regard to parting lines ; I recognise that the C-pillars have one on them ( I can see them in your photos ) . They're right around the area where the roof and C-pillars meet ... ... just like on the "1:1" car

    Very good ! One of the rare-ish times that  the inclusion of a manual trans isn't just a "lazy" happenstance by the kit manufacturer(s) .
  13. 1972coronet added a post in a topic Your fav writer..   

    Definitely Burroughs , and Lovecraft . I've read / heard some of Richard Hell's writings (the best are with Robert Quine accompanying on guitar !) .
    I tend to read medical pieces (including PDR's ... don't ask) and I love to study road maps (especially vintage Thomas Bros Guides !) .
    I'm actually writng a novella of sorts . Been working on it since 25th January 2015 . Its title is Dans les Coleurs du Blanc et Noir .

    Thank you , Robert , for posting and sharing those pics !
    Were the 'real' Grand Prix of 1965 available with a manual transmission ? I'm aware of the new-for-1965 Turbo-Hydra-Matic , but was a 4 speed an option ?

    I read an article on a build-up of the Jo-Han 1970 Oldsmobile 442 in a 1986 issue of Scale Auto . I'm *thinking* that the author / builder was George B. ( I don't remember how to properly spell his surname ) . He employed Testors Flat Red for the 'liners , IIRC ; I used that colour on the 442 I was building at the time (lost in 1987 to the earthquake) .
    Tim Boyd is one of my favourite hobbiests , going back as far as 1984 when I discovered Scale Auto .
