    I LOVED my American Plastic Bricks so much that I kept them.  In my High School Years, I used to build garages and commercial workshops as Christmas decorations and put them with some of my models under the tree.

    What about a Gofundme account?

    OK Old Nasty- based on the eyes, Elizabeth Montgomery.

    And THAT Testa Rossa body worked for about three hundredths of a second longer...
  5. Vince Nemanic added a post in a topic Trans Am Racing Series Kits   

    The 240Z was a national championship winning car in SCCA C Production, not the Trans Am.  The Porsche 911 was (dubiously) classified as a "sedan" due to its having 4 seats - the car was disallowed in 1970.
    If you want to convert stock kits to racers, '66 sand '67 Novas were raced, as were a '64 GTO and a few VW bugs and '64-'65 Falcons and Comets. Then there was the Group 44 '66 Dart...

    Nice work, Joe!  This shows that even simple models can look great when built right.

    I just got back with a new toy: a 2016 Martin D28 John Lennon guitar.  This is not the 75th anniversary edition but the follow up series.  It has the Vintage Tone System which makes a new guitar sounds like a vintage one.  This one is aged to sound like one from 1965, the year that Martin gave guitars to Lennon, McCartney and Harrison.  It just booms right out of the box (it just arrived this morning and I watched the guy take the guitar and case out of the shipping carton).  I was the first person not at the factory who touched it. What a thrill!

    Hello Rick!  I helped out at the Barris auction, along with Don Graham, Doane Yawger and the late BruceTreadwell.  That was a cray weekend!  Good to hear from you, and looking forward to the exchange f thoughts.

    You guys are killing me!  Those 1/20 dune buggies never showed up around here.  I would get at least two at those prices....

    I just got one of those Monogram Vette Vans at a swap meet last week.  It is based on the Tom Daniel Corvette.

    I just looked at two original issue Surf Woody kits that I got at the Barris auction in 1986. One has textured wheels and the other has smooth wheels.  Go figure....

    The "model" thread has a banner in front; the "non model" thread has a banner after the "What did you get today" title. The "non model" thread was started quite a while ago, but evidently the definition was not modified.  I'm not trying to be nasty- the similar titles fooled me for a long time until I noticed the banner location. I think all of the non model entries from this thread were moved to the other thread when it was created.

    Uhh,,,,guys, there is another "what did you get today" for NON model stuff,

    I think this is a revised TD drawing In Rod & Custom I recall it having a scoop atop the blower and wire front wheels.
