  1. A 1982 issue '69 GTO Judge from Ebay for $6+shipping. It's an open kit, but it is complete. The perfect subject for the new Fireball Modelworks Pontiac Poverty cap set..."plain Jane" GTO with a RAIV.
  2. Over the last week I've seen a Nissan GTR, a '65 Mustang Fastback, a Bricklin, a nice sounding and looking '56 Chevy, and today quite possibly the same GTR from earlier in the week in the grocery store parking lot.
  3. This was actually from last Saturday after I took my granddaughter out for lunch and then to Hobby Lobby. Used my 40% coupon on my phone so in the end it was only $17 and change.
  4. A special delivery earlier this week from Fireball Modelworks...2 sets of the new Pontiac steel wheel/poverty cap/tire sets and the '69 Coronet side scoop set. Everything looks fantastic.
  5. A '73 Pontiac GTO on the freeway(more like a parking lot with the current road construction) during my drive to work. It was gold with a tan interior and Snowflake wheels(not correct for that year, but looked nice on the car).
  6. A couple of stops after a funeral today. Got the "Kat" and the GP at Model Empire and the Ford and paints at Panther Hobby Supply.
  7. I don't blame you! They are excellent and very detailed kits. Just very pricey. Nice raffle win though.
  8. I wouldn't mind taking the B-25 off your hands if say...you don't want it.
  9. A Ferrari 430 Italia(?). Not really sure exactly. Not a big Ferrari fan. You just don't many around the Milwaukee area.
  10. As a kid I had the usual Tonka dump truck and loader. I also had a Tonka Winnebago camper that I sat on and rode around on. Unfortunately, after being told repeatedly not to leave it in the driveway, my dad ran it over with the car. A couple more are first, the Adam 12 police car with "action figures" and second, Squad 51...again, with the "action figures." And finally, another that comes to mind is a Hot Wheels or Matchbox car that had a magnet embedded in the bottom to hold it onto a circular disk with a road course that spun around slowly and you "drove" the car around on the road. I've been periodically searching for the Squad 51 set over the last few years for a reasonable price to no avail. Come to think of it, I had the Smash Up Derby cars mentioned earlier and the Evel Knievel motorcycle with action figure too.
  11. Not sure if it was the real deal or a replica(tribute, or whatever wording you choose)...a red '70 1/2 Baldwin Motion Camaro earlier this week.
  12. I did pick up the two Cutlass kits as well as four 1/64th die-casts. A couple GTO's, a '69 1/2 A12 Roadrunner, and the '62 Dodge D100 P/U with the Shasta Camper. Had to keep my time at the store to a minimum as I stopped there on the way to work.
  13. Don't have them in my possession yet, but I have 2 '83 Hurst Olds being held for me at Model Empire. I'll see what else they have new and might end up buying more stuff than I intended.
  14. I've used Testors AMC Big Bad Blue lacquer spray. It passes pretty well.
  15. A '70 GTO Judge RA IV...now you're killing me! That's my dream car. I did have a '72 LeMans at one time with the Endura option. Anyway, I got the GP's, T/A, and Challenger at Wally World in case you were wondering.
  16. Yes sir! They are '64 GP's. I'm a little bit of a Pontiac fan myself...ok, a huge fan!
  17. Got all this over the last couple of weeks. Sold my scooter and old rider for the new Husqvarna rider. Then I bought the brush guard and armrests for it. And then some more 1/64th die-casts for the collection.
  18. I had the intention of finding a job closer to home and use the moped more instead of my truck. Well, that didn't happen. So, it just sat in the garage. It only had 88.6 miles on it when it went bye-bye.
  19. Had to get rid of one to get the other. Bought the moped new in 2012 and hardly rode it. Inherited a rider mower from my father-in-law that is nearly 20 years old. It's getting harder and harder to get parts for it, so it has to go too. Well, I sold the moped on Friday, bought a new rider mower today, and the old rider goes bye-bye on Sunday. Picture of the moped is the actual. Picture of the new rider is a stock photo.
  20. Surprised I missed this post. I NEED TO HAVE ONE! I wonder why? Right Casey?
  21. Actually, some LeMans/GTO parts are interchangeable with the GP. I think the windshield glass, some suspension(and probably brakes), and I believe maybe something or parts with the doors do too. Something to look into.
  22. At least new parts being made now. Good used parts were pretty scarce for quite some time over the years and NOS were nearly impossible to find. Still a great looking car. Love the quad headlight cars('69 & '70) over the singles('71-2). Can't help it, but I'm a little jealous.
  23. WOW...she's a beauty Steven! '69 or a '70? Two of my favorite years for that body style.
