  1. Marx Big Red Rod maybe?
  2. "Squad Rod" '79 Nova

    I normally don't stick up for much in the late 70's to 80's, but my experience with this era Nova was positive. A friend of mine in high school's parents had a 1971 Malibu and a '77 or '78 Nova 2 door as their main cars. This was circa 1985 and both cars were stone stock. I rode in both, many times with my friend driving and both handled pretty well for daily drivers and were pretty quick. That Nova was stronger than the Chevelle, both had V8s. The Malibu had a 307 and I always thought the Nova was a 305, but it could have been a 350. It pulled hard for what it was, I was surprised and somewhat impressed. There was an older guy who was a meat cutter at the grocery store I worked at that had a '77 or so with a 350 and 4 speed transmission that he had special ordered, that one ran well too.They were also popular with kids in my high school and I don't remember any of them being doggy compared to the other stuff that was around at the time. Certainly, by today's standards it was a dark time for cars. But, It seems to me that style Nova was better than a lot of other offerings of the time. - Larry

  5. Great Traders List

    Thanks Oldcarfan27, this was my first trade and everything went very well! Item was exactly as you described, packaged well and sent quickly, would certainly trade again! -Larry
  6. Up for trade: JoHan 1962 Chrysler Hardtop, built up. Molded in red, not painted. This is most likely a USA Oldies issue, probably dating from the late 1970's to 1980's. The good: Not painted, All emblems and door handles are intact, hood opens, 413 2x4bbl motor is complete and comes out of the car, glass look's pretty nice no glue marks on the areas that show. I would grade the chrome as good (7 to 8 out of 10). Has 4 good thin whitewall tires. Good tail lights. Complete unpainted interior. The not so good: Missing front driver side headlight, missing rear bumper. Has 3 stock hubcaps and one that does not match. Look's like it had something glued to the center of the top, but did not do much damage. Has glue mark on top of passenger side top of front fender, where a mirror or antenna was. Look's like it will clean up relatively easily. Has very minor glue marks on the chassis and has minor sink marks on trunk where the posts are underneath. These were most likely in it from the factory. The car is not disassembled, so I do not know how easily the interior and windows will come out, There is no visable glue damage on the outside of the car caused by overgluing the windshield or interior. All in all, It is a solid resto project for guys who like resto projects and or big Chryslers. I am not one of those guys! That's the reason I am looking to trade. I like hot rods and drag cars, I am interested in trading for a newer unbuilt kit. I like Monogram Model As, I could use a Monogram '65 Shelby Gt350R. But I am willing to listen to what you have.

  7. Plymouth 383 auto.

    Also, unless the real car had an engine swap the GTX didn't come with a 383. Either the 440 or hemi only. The GTX was Plymouth's top end muscle car. The 383 was available in Roadrunners and Satellites, as well as other Plymouth cars of various sizes. Not that it really matters in scale. It is just something to be aware of when painting and applying engine decals.
  8. Jaguar XK 120

    Love it! Beautiful color, I have always thought 120's are near perfection, design wise.
  9. AMT 1965 Pontiac Grand Prix

    Great job! Great color and attention to detail! I just found one of these at Olllie's, and eventhough the box art almost scared me away, it look's like it builds into a nice stocker! At least in your hands, LoL!
  10. East Coast 32 Coupe

    Wow! That's a true beauty! Nailed the East Coast look 100%! Love the color!
  11. 1/25 Tribute Hot Wheels Custom Camaro

    SO COOL!!!!! Love everything about it! -Larry
  12. Ollie's strike again

    They had bunches of those Chase Elliot and Havick cars in Quakertown, Pa. When I was there about a week ago there was probably a least a case of each. I have zero interest in the nascar stuff, and it doesn't look like they were moving very fast. I am guessing they will there for a while. -Larry
  13. Need help identifying these parts

    The motor is an Oldsmobile, BTW.
  14. Need help identifying these parts

    The motor is out of a Revell 1941 Willys Coupe, I'd say the melted slicks, wheels and rear end are too. The traction bar certainly looks like the ones in the Willys kit. The other wheels and tires are AMT, I would say, and might have come with the El Camino at some point, it has been issued a number of times. The Tires look like AMT for sure.
