  1. Chevrolet Van/Medium Duty Chassis Cab

    This is the beastie I'm talking about! So this is not a factory offering but something cooked up by the motorhomes manufacturer?
  2. I have been trying to track down images and information on an oddball chassis cab vehicle manufactured by GM. I have only seen this a couple of times but it seems to be a heavier duty version of the G30 van chassis with some kind of tilt hood that uses the grille from the C70 truck. The ones that I have seen were Class C motorhomes so I'm not totally convinced yet that this was a factory offering. I do know that in 1993 Chevrolet started offering a G30 cab on the P30 chassis that had a fibreglass tilt hood, but it had the same grille as the equivalent G30 so what I'm looking for seems to be something different. I'm hoping someone here is familiar with this vehicle and I'm not imagining things...
  3. Left NC yesterday and stopped for the night in Stamford, CT. We're stuck here for the day.
  4. Hobby Shops in Mebane-Hillsborough area?

    So in an update to this thread, I did pass by a place called Bobby's Hobbies in Gibsonville on the way to Mebane from Roanoke. Hope to check it out while I'm in the area. Also going to check out Raleigh Hobby tomorrow.
  5. 2019 Silverado

    Did anyone else notice the 2019 Ram has switched to six lug wheels?
  6. Hobby Shops in Mebane-Hillsborough area?

    Thanks for the info! Might go check out the Ollie's while we're down.
  7. I'm going to be visiting family in Mebane and Hillsborough, NC for New Year's. Driving down from New Brunswick so I'll be mobile and willing to travel a bit outside of those cities in search of shops. Hopefully there are some good hobby shops in the area and not just the chain stores...! Thanks in advance!

    Any pictures? Nothing on the website that I can find except the Wagoneer body. I picked up two of these kits at reasonable prices so of course it's being reissued....
  9. Hobby Lobby made my day

    I live in Saint John, NB. As far as I know, Hobby Lobby doesn't have Canadian stores. The closest store to me is in Bangor, ME, which is 136 miles. However, I am a long haul truck driver and I have easy access to the HL in Auburn, ME, which is about 221 miles away. I've also been to stores in Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Alamance Crossing, NC. I'll be looking for the Molotow pens now that I know they carry them.
  10. I will say, driving a manual in heavy traffic can be rather tiring. The Cascadia's clutch is really heavy, but I don't use it much. Usually go between 4/5 but in a 13 speed that involves a range change. I have a Mazda 5 now for puttering around when I'm home and it is a 5 speed. My pickup is a 93 Chevy that I inherited from my dad; wish it was a manual but I won't be changing it.
  11. Round 2 February 2017 Product Spotlight

    He says the 60 Starliner has two complete engines; the 352 and what is the other one?
  12. hobby shops in Atlanta GA

    Do any of these places have easy access to the interstate and truck parking?
  13. Casey, I have to ask out of affinity for the venerable six cylinder: have you considering putting the AMC 258 in this from the MPC Pacer?
  14. Re-careering

    I'm enjoying being on the road so far! I have about 16,000 km in now. I have been down as far as Georgia and as west as far as Iowa. Most trips I get are on the 5-7 days range, usually home for two days. My most recent trip had me out for 12 days. My company is really good at letting drivers decide how much home time they want. I got to visit the Iowa 80 truck stop, what a place! Unfortunately the museum was closed when I was there; hopefully I can get back when it is open.
