      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    This "Page" guy ("Pedro"?) was set up at the last Detroit-area show (I don't live there - there was a partial photo of his table on the Spotlight Board). I found his e-mail address but he did not respond to me. His Facebook page is not public.
    He must be trying for "Business Man of the Year".

    It'll be easy to find listed under eBay's "Completed Auctions".

    Your photo shows replicas of the '63 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster wheels (not covers). These wheels now seem ubiquitous on (over)restored late '50's and early '60's Ford products.
    Your Mom sounds like a real hepcat for owning such a fancy Crown Vic!
    I'll bet that she had these cool Ford accessory wheel covers:
     

    (I took this photo)
     
    Unfortunately, The Modelhaus offered REALLY nice castings of these wheel covers.

    I just checked my eBay account. I've purchased six times from this seller in the past year (usually multi-part sales). Never a problem. I'm there to purchase model car parts - not to judge a sellers acuity.

    Just to veer off into Pontiac territory for a moment, here's an excellent page:
    Pontiac Promotional Photo Errors
    I e-mailed the author:
    "...the last few lines of your take on the 1969 Firebird TransAm photo errors are cut-off by the heavy black bounding box. Can you tell what the last few sentences are?"
    He responded:
    "There's a whole array of non-production items shown in this ad for the 1969 Trans Am (see my other article titled "The Development Of The 1969 Trans Am" for more details). The overhead shot of this pre-production car was also used in the Pontiac Dealer Album insert that Pontiac sent to its dealers detailing the specs on the new Trans Am. Unfortunately, by the time the car was put into production, a number of items were changed. Over the years, dozens of 1969 Trans Am's have been restored incorrectly as resto shop referenced this magazine ad and the dealer album insert to restore a 69 Trans Am. As the decades have passed, more information, most notably the actual 1969 Pontiac Firebird assemblymanual used on the production line, have verified that only pre-production models were decorated as the above photos show."

    Try this: log-in to eBay and search for ENDED auction number:
    222043356994
    It's a painted and assembled Scale Dreams Corvette Corvair. The photos are very good quality and will give you an excellent idea as to what a finished R&D/Curbside kit will look like.
    The kit that I have and this finished example seem identical, but I cannot say for certain.

    I purchase a lot of resin. Scripts and emblems are usually the final deciding factor if I purchase or not. Decals (such as those from Keith Marks) are cool too. Photo-etch attached to the master would probably be the preferred way to go for us blind old coots. I'm sure that there are people that can obtain artwork and take it to finished product for you. That'll be one less learning curve for you to climb.
    Maybe Art Anderson will see this and offer his always valued opinion.
    I like your Polara!

    Will you be doing scripts and emblems?

    Maybe not:
     
    I have a set of Modelhaus replacement seats that exactly match the ones inside the green car above. They're in the familiar tan resin.
     
    I have a set of Hart's Parts replacement seats that match the black seat in the second pic above. They're in white resin.
     
    I hope this helps!
