MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. You're doing an amazing job on this. Love the detail!
  2. That is looking absolutely fantastic, Marcos... Can't wait to see an update on this one!
  3. Paint turned out very nice, Ray. Guess I'll uncross my toes now...
  4. Will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you... LOL
  5. Knock that black paint job dead, Ray! Lookin' pretty so far...
  6. Cool projects, guys! This is one I hope to work on someday...
  7. Great pics! I've never seen some of those, Edgar. Thanks for sharing those! Scott
  8. Nope - I wasn't taking it that way, Tim. Not at all...
  9. I'll do whatever I can to offer suggestions, but I have very few critical bones in my body, so I don't think I'll say anything that can be misconstrued as truly critical. What you've seen, so far, is pretty much what you'll get.
  10. Yes - that's the one I was talking about. As long as it's not being passed off as his original, I'm okay with that, but if a scale builder is trying to find examples of the authentic car, this one's not a good one to use as reference.
  11. Exactly! The wheels are polished. I never once remember seeing polished S/Ts on that car. The stance, while close, doesn't look low enough in the front; it's got the wrong hood scoop (rear/upper portion of scoop top tapered down), but the biggest discrepancy is that IF it's his original car, then the quarter panels have been replaced, because the stock-appearing bulged/flared wheelwell openings are on this car and his '78 car had most, if not all, of that bulge removed, plus the wheelwell openings on his original car were more oval shaped. Notice that the "restored" car conceals part of the upper rear wheel, whereas if you look at any '78 vintage pictures of his car (see attached image), you'll see that the entire rear wheel is visible and a bit of the tire sidewall. The restored car, I just noticed this morning, doesn't appear to even have a 351C in it! I can't make out what it is. It looks like front distributor, but if my eyes aren't deceiving me, there are three upper valve cover bolts, which doesn't fit with a Cleveland or 385-series engine. I dunno about that one!
  12. I would add that you need to be careful about how much confidence you place in the authenticity of some of the replica cars out there. There is a very nice looking version of his '78 car that I'd bet my life savings isn't his restored original car, but a look alike. It has too many details that don't match Bob's car to suit me. If it is his original '78 car, then its restoration is all wrong, IMHO.
  13. Super! Looking forward to seeing you Nick...
  14. Hi Nick - Futurattraction Scale Products will also be there Saturday. Looking forward to it!
