  1. Welp, today has not gone as expected.........

    Glad to hear you sounding like you're feeling better, Joe.
  2. Early Funny Car Reference

    Some great material here, gennelmen. I'll save a lot of this, and save a lot of double-checking research time in the process.
  3. Wow

    That's a big model. Looks to be about the right scale for cats.
  4. Early Funny Car Reference

    I'd recommend you start with these sites for an overview, and then research specific cars mentioned therein. https://www.nhra.com/news/2016/early-funny-car-history-101 http://www.60sfunnycars.com/ https://theshopmag.com/features/brief-history-funny-cars
  5. Ain't that the truth. But I've kicked most of my other vices, so I figure it's pretty harmless. I have all my kits marked with realistic prices, so in the event of my sudden demise, my executor won't have to do hours of mind-numbing research...or just toss the stuff, which would be kinda sad. I've also left a list of people to offer a lot of stuff to for free, so it's pretty well covered.
  6. 1932 Ford Chopped 4-Door Sedan Conversion

    That side view is definitely the meat. Stance is perfect. Nice work, really looking forward to seeing this progress.
  7. Porsche 904 Indy

    That's a lot of work. Very interesting to watch your approach to merging parts from two wildly dissimilar cars into a believable whole.
  8. Niki Lauda dead at 70

    Great driver, good man. Thanks for the post. I didn't know.
  9. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    Yes, there was some great stuff built in the '70s (well, before the gas thing pretty much emasculated all the engines), but in '69, I got interested in European cars and kinda lost interest in US iron. Now I find myself really noticing a lot of American cars I overlooked years ago.
  10. Welp, today has not gone as expected.........

    Scary stuff when the symptoms are heart-related. Wishing you well.
  11. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    An old friend who decided he'd probably never get around to building his 1/8 Jag figgered I'd like to have it. Now I do. 100% complete...
  12. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Yup. You deserve it.
  13. What do you listen to while you build???

    Found this stream a coulpa days ago.
  14. What is your favorite year for American automobiles?

    Sorry, I can't do one year. But the decades between 1949 and 1969 have more of my favorite vehicles than any other period.
  15. What Pleased You Today!

    Figgered out choo can use clear silicone to do a pretty decent repair on blown speaker cones. I blew both subs not too long ago and haven't gotten around to replacing them. I tried CA gel first, and though it worked initially, it was too hard and the cone broke again right next to the repair. After finally getting sick of listening to buzzing rattling bass, I tried Devcon silicone adhesive. Gooed it up, let it dry overnight. Still sounds just fine 3 days later. Time to order some new subs, but I gots tunes in the meantime.
