    The road racer also has a shorter nose like the drag car, so it is a pretty major conversion.

    Beppe, you probably don't know that Bill Harrison, Randy Vandraiss, and Bruce Treadwell have all passed away.

    You probably do.  I was on the committee for years, and worked the registration desk or ticket booth.  I "retired' from the committee, but I still help the vendors find their tables before the door open, plus I help out in a pinch.  I'm one of a handful of people who have been to all of the NNLs.  Hope to see you there in February.

    Have you attended the NNL Western Nationals at the Convention Center next to Levi's Stadium? Next year's show will be February 4.  This is one of the shows featured in the current issue of Scale Auto.  We usually have over 1100 modelers, 400-500 people and over 80 swap meet tables. It is the second biggest display in the country. Hope to meet you there.

    Did you ever notice how much the Super Car resembled GM's Firebird III turbine car?

    I rarely buydiecasts, so I have a question.  Where would I go to get one of these?

    Snake, I doubt they will do the surgery for a few floaters.  I had serious bleeding in both eyes - I had over 90% blockage in each eye.  The doctor did the surgery on my right eye because it was the worst.  The surgery was done in Oct 2008, and my left eye has about 4 "strings" of blood that will apparently never dissolve but they will not replace the fluid in that eye.  This does show that there are many reasons to be an organ donor. I have no idea who the person was, but I'm forever grateful to him or her.

    Michael, do you have Diabetes? I do, and my ophthalmologist explained to me that the disease causes abnormal, thin-walled veins to from in the retina, and the extra sugar in my blood causes them to burst and bleed into the eye.  I have had numerous laser treatments to cauderize  the veins in both eyes, and have even had to have the fluid in one eye removed and replaced. PLEASE have yourself  tested for Diabetes and act accordingly. Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness in America and has many other consequences. It would be q good idea to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough exam. Good luck to you.

    Actually, in the 70s AMT had a "Dune Buggy" version of the Woody with a flat floor, z couple of seats and a top something like the one in the Meyers Manx kit. Proves that great minds think alike.

    Curb, I took the 4 lower photos of the car at the old Harrah Auto Collection in the summer of 1983.  It was under one of the outdoor sheds-actually tin roof awnings, and My Mother the Car was about 20 feet away. I think the picture of the car in the sun was by Roy Sorenson.
