I went this morning. There is always some variation from store to store. The one I went to did not have the Atlantic or the Maverick, they did have the Charger police car. The AMT Vette kits were all curbsides.
Amazing work, Harry. What kind of joints and glue are you using for the door frames? Are the doors fragile? How did you bend the pieces of wood that go over the fenders? I would like to build a wood body someday, so I'm picking your brain while I have the chance!
No disrespect intended, Danno, but even with the ghost markings, those are pretty obviously police cars. The local deputies here are using an unmarked white minivan. Imagine the shock when someone is pulled over by that!
That's a very good point, Art. I think we tend to believe that in the '60s, every boy built model cars. Looking back to my own acquaintances at that time, I can only think of 3 or 4 who consistently built models of any kind. The same holds true today. Of all my friends, I am the only one who builds models. So if only a small percentage of kids today build models, that was true back then as well. The percentage may be even smaller now, I don't know. I suspect that the desire to build something has not decreased. Look at the popularity of Legos.
Joe, I found a pair that are about 1.15" x .6". The wheel opening is about .7" diameter. They're hollow. They are Goodyear on one side and Firestone on the other. They are not Eagles, tho. They are not in perfect condition, but might sand up OK. They're yours if you want them.
LOL! No rust, but it did die a premature death as a result of someone speed shifting it and drifting it on the back roads. It also managed about 30 feet airborne by jumping the railroad tracks downhill. I can't imagine who would do things like that! Thanks, Andy.
