    I made them using Windows Word and some decal paper. Took a few tries to get the size to look right, so you do your practice runs on plain paper.

    How cool would that be in 1:1? Very nice!

    My mother-in-law had a "Matadork" in that exact color. I hope to do as nice a job as you did at replicating hers when I get to that kit.

    That is PRECISELY how I would have ordered my 1:1 version. You know, if I had a time machine.

    What's not to like? Very clean, great color choice.

    '68 Olds 442 W-30
    Nothing too crazy, I used the hood and bumpers/grille from The Modelhaus to turn the AMT '69 442 into a '68. Photoetched scripts and license plate frames. I made the plates, inspection and other stickers, and the '68 Oldsmobile sales brochure and an issue of Collectible Automobile that featured a '68 Cutlass on the cover. Most other stuff was either out of the box or my styrene scrapyard.

    '69 Hurst/Olds
    Here's a largely box-stock build of the AMT 1969 Hurst/Olds. I did machine new exhaust tips out of sprue, but otherwise kept it pretty simple. I'm currently working on a companion convertible starting with the Motor City Resins bodyshell. I was pretty pleased with the results here.

    Sweet 'n' clean. I would have ordered mine just like it in October '69, if I had a time machine.

    I like your Riv a lot, because you kept it subtle and classy. The first-gen Rivvie had such clean styling, hard to improve on. Customizing one can be hard, because some guys don't know when to "lift the brush", so to speak.

    Shot propane tanks with a hunting rifle. Crashed cars into utility poles, on purpose. Picked fights, with cops. Homemade explosive devices. I have about 170+ years worth of stupid packed into my life experience. I'm not done yet.

    The laws of physics apply to EVERYONE. And they are, shall we say, "self-enforcing". No matter what your theory about how drunks ALWAYS survive a crash because "they're more relaxed" or whatever (not true), it's probably best not to get good 'n' lickered up before you get behind the wheel.

    Who knew that the glue-sniffers who frequent this site had dating advice? I think that you guys are on to something.

    Watch me work?
    A lady that I have recently been keeping company with actually said, "I'd like to watch you work on a model." after seeing some of my finished builds. Frankly, I'm MYSTIFIED by this. I imagine that it would be like watching paint dry. I was able to talk my late wife into building a model in (I think) 1988, when we were dating and she was 18. Can someone explain this request from a woman in her late 40s? I reckoned that a woman of that age would know better.

    As a recent widower after nearly 20 years of marriage (almost 27 together), I can concur.

    A beer commercial said it best a few years ago: Some days are better than others.

    Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for you.
