  19. I have 2 of these kits and wonder if I should make one a regular van after seeing yours it's not regular in any way I think George barris would say "wow"...Cheers to that!!!! I have decided to build one into a funny car drag racer Cheers Chris "life's a gas pedel get off the "brakes"
  20. Even the gas spent I still save money... Well lets see....6 of the models found are 1/16 scale which retail for around $50-60.. And 31 models at the average price of $20.. So to buy all these kits in the store it would have cost $950.00..... I think a little gas money is no where near that amuont... At $87.00 it works out to be $2.35 a model Cheers Chris
  21. Well it's the end of summer and garage and lawn sales tend to slow down..... I did a count on my finds from this summer and the grand total is 37 models for a total cost of $87.00..... Cheers Chris
  22. Hi everybody!! I've been building for 30+ years on and off..I'm not a rich dude so I try to save money when it comes to this hobby, Cause bigbox stores have no sellection on kits and hobby stores charge to much, So I'm allways looking for a cheaper source for models, So I have found that my wife and I go every saturday and find garage sales, lawn sales, estate sale, moving sales, And flea markets, and the odd car show/swap meet. This is the most recent find 15 models allready built for $12.00 dollars.. Cheers Chris
