    Where is the rack for the huge set of balls it would take to ride that trike?

    That's why I wasn't sure what scale it was, the engine is almost as big as a 1/25 Cummins out of a semi truck. The thought of a 40s/50s hot rod or salt lakes car has crossed my mind but the logistics are still up in the air.

    Engine ID number infinity and one
    I got this straight 8 with dual overhead cams and a gear driven centrifugal supercharger already built in a trade. I have no idea where it came from or even what scale it is, guys, have at it.

    I'm sure I have the rollbar. My decal guy ripped me off to the tune of $120, if the Rollin' Thunder set had worked out a complete set of Bigfoot 1 and 2 decals were going to be next on the list. If we can find someone more reputable I'd be interested in going in together to get some really good ones made.

    Bill, you are so right about the automotive culture of the time. My dad bough his first car in 1974, it was a 68 Ford LTD with a 428CJ and the police interceptor package. When he was little older and making decent money he traded that car in on a new 1977 Pacer loaded with all the options. At the time this seemed like a logical decision and only in hindsight, knowing now how prized muscle cars are today, does it seem like something done by a mentally challenged person.

    Looking for front rims from Revell 1/25 snap Kenworth and Peterbilt
    If anyone has the front rims from either of the 1/25 Revell snap semi kits I'd like to have them, I'm looking for several sets. I've got stuff to trade or whatever.

    I built a 4-53 a while back, it wasn't too bad. You'll need the gear covers from an 8v-71 out of an AMT semi kit, the basic block is pretty easy to scratch together.

    Thanks, Terry. That gives me some guidance.

    I've ordered some of their axles and suspension parts, everything looked nice and the shipping was quick.

    Like others have said, I was interested in mechanical things from very early. I had Matchbox cars and Tonka toys, I got my first Lego set at about four. My dad built models as a kid but stopped some time in his early twenties, his last kit was a Monogram IMSA Mustang. My first kit was a snap version of the USS Yorktown bought on the ship at Patriots Point in Charleston SC when I was seven or eight. Within a year or so I got my first car kit, Mark Martin's #6 Folgers Thunderbird. I think I used a whole tube of glue on it and once it was dry it didn't last long as I barrel rolled it down our hallway mimicking NASCAR crashes of the day. My dad gave me his old model stuff at this point and I built several more NASCAR kits along with some Lindberg tanks and the old Monogram A-10. I never really took a break though I've had periods where I couldn't really build due to living space.

    Alright, thanks guys. I'll have to make some plans to get out there.

    Why did I not know about this, I live like 20 minutes from Lincolnton!

    That first one reminds me of the guys that do the lawn mower tractor pulls.
