MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Wow! Super nice! I thought it was a real Cobra at first glance.
  2. Where is the model? Seriously, outstanding job!
  3. Nice trading with you too! Thanks again!
  4. Really cool! Love the color! I just got one of these first issue 55's on ebay and the guy packed it poorly so the windshield broke on mine too. Luckily, I was able to repair it.
  5. Well, I am thinking he probably paid more than it is worth and is now trying to generate some hype. I was looking and a real '67 GT-350 in perfect restored condition can go as high as 200k. This car is not that. It is a hacked up shell and would probably cost too much to bring it back, assuming it is real to start with (Which I think it is). As a vintage drag car it has NO known pedigree or provenance, so it is a kind of neat collection of vintage parts, but as the guy in the Hot Rod Hoarder video was saying, the patina is almost too perfect and it doesn't appear to have fit any class, except possibly an obscure one in AHRA. So it isn't worth that much as a Shelby or as a vintage drag car, it is the "mystery" or story that seems compelling here and as I said in my earlier post, I am almost sure it is not as big a deal as these guys would like to think it is. The idea that it may have been a wreck turned into a race car seems very plausible after seeing that second video.
  6. Nice! I should have grabbed one of the Drag City 5 windows, I don't think you can get them anymore.
  7. A lot of neat projects going on! I really like the chopped 5 window window, the '34 pickup and the Lindberg '32 pickup.
  8. Nice job! Great to see one built!
  9. Super job! A well designed and cleanly built show rod!
  10. This is certainly a cool car, but I don't see what all the hubbub is about......I think it is a real Shelby, probably the chassis they think it is, but it's pretty cut up for a stock resto and it has no obvious racing provenance. Let's go back to the late 60's when this was built. At the time it wasn't priceless and rare, it was a few years old Mustang (I just saw another youtube video where a guy bought his legit '65 GT-350 for $900 in the early 1970's). The builder decides to turn it into a drag car, doing the mods we see. Tilt front end, set back fuel injected engine, racing seats, etc. He doesn't worry about the original emblems and parts, it's a race car. Unfortunately, either the class it is being built for rapidly changes making it obsolete, or the builder runs out of money and/or interest. The project is halted and it sits in storage for 50 plus years, never making a run down the track. Not so hard to believe. An interesting story and a cool car, but I think it's significance is being exaggerated partially because these guys are fan boys like us, but it also doesn't hurt its perceived value either.
  11. Another well thought out stunner! Excellent work!
  12. Great paint job and the wheels are perfect for it! Nice old school street machine!
  13. The Moebius Super Stock and AFX Plymouths have the factory exhaust cut-out set up. They are similar to the ones posted above and are nicely detailed. I think the Revell/Monogram '37 Ford kits had glass pack style mufflers.
