I know they changed from year to year , but I have a 71 plymouth in my back yard with a 2 tone green interior. Its a dark olive with the seat inserts in a lighter shade of green. I can try and take a couple of pics if you would like to see it.
It's not to bad to do if you drop the trunk area with itThis was my first try at a chop top and it didn't turn out to bad. I had read an article in Ol'Skool Rods with Bill Hines choping a 51 and decided to try it in scale the way he did it.
There's Hartmann's model railroad museum in Intervale NH that has a small section of car models. http://www.hartmannrr.com/ . A must stop type of place in norhtern NH if your visiting the area not far from the White mountain area. They have 2 large buildings, one's the museum and the other is the hobby shop. They also have an outdoor model train that you can get a ride around the grounds on.
Your Fairlane looks fantastic. But the inspiration car has me a little confused. What are they running for suspension? specifically the hubs and axles. I've never seen a 10 lug setup before other than 1 ton pickup's.
A couple of years ago, I forget what magazine it was but I think it was "Old Skool Rodz", Had an article in the new product section that had jewelry made out of paint droppings from some of the old paint lines. I think they were calling it Fordite or somthing like that.
No Problem Doug glad I could help. Yes that is one I did a couple years ago for a xmas gift for my dad. Before he met my mom he had a few very nice mustangs. In 1970 he traded in a 69 Mach 429CJ for a Boss 302. The Boss was about 3 month's old with just over 500 miles on it. 4 kids stole it while he was at work got into a police chase and hit an oak tree at almost 100 mph. He always said it was his favorite and wished he still had it. He also said he wished he had kept the 69 also but he traded it because he didn't want a car payment. He paid cash for the 69. He bought the boss at the end of the model year and couldn't get another one. so he ended up buying a new 701/2 Z/28. Then my mom and later me came along. I was about 5 in 78 when he finally got rid of the Z for a more Family friendly VW statin wagon. When I gave it to him it was the first time I ever saw him get a little emotional, He's very old school ex milatary type so I know it ment alot to him. He made an amazing wood framed display case with glass and mirror's for it to really show it off. I'll have to take a pic of it in the case next time I'm over there house.
Thats looking awsome John. Can't wait to see it in the under glass section. Just a small tip on applying putty. When you get credit card offer's in the mail, save the fake credit card and cut it up to use as a spreader. You can get a smoother application that makes it easier to sand and not use as much putty in the process.
