  1. Revell-o-gram '37 Ford coupe.... I've built it a few times, each one a little better than the last! This is the first one, Cadillac engine and artillery wheels. Then I built another with Corvette wheels. and the latest one is my favorite out of the bunch!
  2. If I had something that was plated and wanted to paint it, I would strip the chrome from it with Bleach, then prime and paint as usual.... DupliColor makes a really good sandable primer that comes in a rather large can that will work just fine with the Tamiya paints....... DupliColor products can be found at your local O'Rielly's or Advance Auto.....
  3. This cartoon gave me a giggle.....
  4. Sharp Dog! You can really see the Husky and Shepherd in him....... Mixed dogs make for the most well behaved and ailment free pets....
  5. I tried to read this book as a kid, because I saw the movie and loved it! It was a bit too advanced of a read at the time for me, and I had forgotten all about it....... Maybe I'll hunt down a copy and try it again.
  6. Anyone here willing to admit that they read "The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking" as a kid? I did a few times, enjoyed it so much that I was on the hunt for an original printing of it for a while....... 1950 was it's first print in the US.......
  7. I would just maybe get some spray cans, man... I've tried that set-up and couldn't get good results with it... Aerosol cans work just fine for spraying parts.
  8. I think I read somewhere that that car was a "recreation", not an original Hemi Under Glass......
  9. You should get a Napster account, man.... $10 a month, zero ads, and you can stream all you want. I've got to be listening to mine maybe 2 or 3 hours out of the day everyday..... The last they showed, they were up to 70 million songs!
  10. Another one I like, Oysterhead.... It's Les Claypool of Primus, Trey Anastasio from Phish, and Stewart Copeland from some '80s group....
  11. Here's a super group from the more recent.... Them Crooked Vultures Josh Homme from Kyuss, QOTSA, EODM.... Dave Grohl from Nirvana, Foo Fighters, QOTSA.... John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin....
  12. I've been listening to Kyuss for the past couple days straight, really good band! It's my understanding that Homme's guitar is put through a bass amp..... Would that give it more "fuzz"? I'd post a link to the song I've been listening to (the 8.5 minute jam "Fatso Forgotso"), but there's an ef bomb in it, so I'll leave it off of here.... There's another long song called "Un Sandpiper" that's really good, also......
  13. "What is love? Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me no more......."
  14. John, didn't the CHP use the 440 in their pursuit vehicles? I know some states did, that's how I found out about the WOT tests..... read it in a magazine article, Hemmings Muscle Car Review or something.....
  15. You see an old MoPar at a car show, what's the first question most people would be asking? "Has it got a Hemi?" I like the Elephant engine, but would much rather just have the good ol' 440 RB engine.... The Highway Patrol that used the 440s did so because it was the only engine that could withstand WOT for an extended period. I've read that the Hemi engine needed constant adjustment (mainly the valve train) to stay at peak performance. What about you guys? If you had a choice, which engine would you prefer?
