    The Detail Junkies engine linked to is the engine that is the Welderup show car, it's a 5.9 Cummins 12 valve from a Dodge 3500 truck. I also scratch built a Detroit 4-53, I built the block and oil pan and borrowed the gear covers from an 8v-71 from a semi kit.

    I have the grill and turn signals, if you're interested pm me your address and I get them to you.

    Let me look around a bit, I might have something.
  4. Fat Brian added a post in a topic "D" , "E" , of "F" ?   

    D but I would like it better in another color or with some pin stripes or scallops or something.
  5. Fat Brian added a post in a topic "A" or "B" ?   

    I don't care for A, B, or C completely. None of them stay consistent to their design theme, I don't like modern components on rat rods. I like the chop and drilled visor on B but the car is a bit too grungy for me but has chrome engine pieces. Give me C chopped like B with C's vintage engine and find some more period looking wheels and tires.

    Check out this gallery of pics of a Ford Focus that was towed behind a motorhome while the transmission was in 1st gear.

    The box art has one picture of the built kit with the top, whether it's in the box or not I'm not sure.

    Go over to the forums at Big Mack Trucks, those guys will know for sure what should be in it.

    You can get the Monogram Grand National for a stock G body chassis and Buick interior. It has the turbo V6 but 1/24 V8s aren't hard to come by.

    Mike, I thought the same thing about the store at University. It was huge and did all the gaming stuff and rc stuff but they closed about two years ago. I don't know why Charlotte can't keep a hobby store in business, it doesn't make any sense.

    According to Wikipedia the Cummins NTC-335 was standard equipment in the B73, maybe a newer transmission was swapped in at one point.

    I noticed that too Mike and I meant to message you about it. I stopped there a lot and spent more than I want my wife to know about. I had talked to David at one point and he said he made most of his money off of rc stuff so I thought they were going to be around for a while. For me it's going to be the Hobbytown in Mooresville, Rock Hill is too far out of the way.

    There are a few on there now for closer to $40 and promos are even cheaper.

    A friend of mine at work had an early 2000s Dakota sport with a 4.7 at it would get down the road pretty good, it was almost as fast as an S-10 Extreme another guy had.

    The STS website has them listed for $65, that's as cheap as I've found them.
