  1. Well slight step backwards for me. Discovered that I didn't need to shorten the chassis. So I had to start over with a new one. Tim
  2. Hey, Sam. What wheels are you using on that Chevelle? Tim
  3. One of my many projects is using the V12 Detroit Diesel from the Bandag Bandit. Does anyone know of somewhere I can get detailing tips for it. I want to add a little life to it. Thanks Tim
  4. Since the Chevy II says 6 on the front fender. I can't run a V8 so a Grand National turbo(twin Turbo) V6 will power the wagon to victory.
  5. Adding length to the chassis behind the wheel wells shortening it in front to match the wheel base.
  6. Here is my entry, 1964 Chevy II nova station wagon. with the drive train from the Yenko camaro.
  7. I was being sarcastic. I have found something to build, I actually have two. I picked up a Chevy II nova wagon, and waiting on a 64 Cutlass drop top to come in. I started work some work on the wagon. Was working on the chassis for the wagon looking to cut it down. Low and behold all my saws have disappeared out of my desk. No where to be found. Replacements should be here from Micro Mark soon. The wagon is a 63 but with research I have found that they are virtually identical to the 64s. But the decision to let it run will be up to the powers that be. LOL Official entry will be posted soon. Tim
  8. Can't seem to find anything of 64-65 vintage. Can I use my sons year of birth 88, 94, or 97 LOL. Na, I should be able to find something of 64-65 vintage to build their are a few kits out there. Tim
  9. Looks great. Thanks for sharing. Tim
  10. Maybe I will head across the state for it. Tim
  11. So Dec 64 in my birth date. Now to see if I have anything that would be 64-65ish. Or go shopping. Tim
  12. MMMM, very interesting builds. Now I may have to peruse my kits for some ideas. Let me see. Where did I put that pacer kit. Tim
  13. Haven't really gotten to that stage but I am thinking of using masking tape. it has a vinyl type grain to it. Should be able to fold it like a soft sunroof. Tim
  14. Greg, is that 1/24 or 1/25? Another of my projects is a MPC 71 Roadrunner. Tim
  15. Tim, you may want to take a look at the GS/GSX thread. it has information on that. Tim
  16. Greg, the 71-72 style Buick Skylark/GS bumpers were made from heavily modifying the kit bumpers. Most of my builds have been in progress for a while. I'll pull out one work on it for a bit then put it away. Then work on something else. That list is only the Buick GS' I have about half dozen or more in progress. Tim
  17. Paul, I will go one worse for you. I traded my 70 GTO 400 4 speed for an 84 Mercury Lynx. I have made a set of bumpers for a project I an working on. One of the 1971 GS Stage 1 Convertible zone cars. I have been a Buick GS fanatic for years. I had a 70 GS Stage1 when I was in high school. Currently have a 71 Buick Sportwagon. That I intend on taking to the 40th Anniversary GS Nationals in May. I have several GS models in progress: 1970 GS Stage 1 ( what my car would have looked off the showroom floor 1970 GSX prototype 1970 GS Stage 2 Reynolds Buick racecar 1970 GSX Motion car 1971 GS Stage 1 Conv zone car. 1972 GS Suncoupe 1970 GS pro-touring 1966 GS Pro-touring 70-72 Sportwagon plans for also doing the GSX prototype car show touring side kick, 1970 GS Stage 1 custom flame red with all white interior/clear glass. Tim
  18. I read about this show on the KC Slammers web page. Unfortunately the email didn't work. Does anyone have any information on this show? Thanks Tim
  19. I would like to make it but my 3rd grandson is due on Mar 23. Tim
  20. I would love a 70, 71 Sport Fury. Add me to the list of wanting one. Tim
  21. I am needing some information for our Mopar gurus. I have some questions: When did Mopar's Direct Connection began? What was the Mopar parts called in the Muscle car years? 64-73 (If not Direct Connection) What was the name of the Mopar performance skunk works in Detroit? Was it Ramchargers? Was the 71 Road Runner available with body colored bumpers? ( Maybe with the hi impact paint colors) These questions relate to a model project I am planning/working on. Thanks for the info guys. Tim
  22. I wonder how they compare to the model master #11 blades. Way sharper than the Xactos. Tim
