    Havent seen it in a while.
    But there use to be a 62 Galaxie vert around here locally. Black with red int. 406  4spd . I REALLY liked that car.

    But a clean builder 58 is TOUGH to come up with,,,,, in either form. I looked for nearly a year before I got one,,,,and it still cost me over $50 with a heavily customized body
    Luckily our resident annuals builder guru   ( aka StevenGuthmiller ) gave me a body to fix the one I got

    But my bank account sure wishes you would stop.,,,,,,,,Every time you get one of these old annuals finished  It adds another one to my want list

  7. gtx6970 added a post in a topic What are your pre-build planning methods?   

    What is this thing called Planning you mention.?
    I see a subject I like ,, then go from there. Which usually means I look for and buy the subject kit,,,, then I see something I like and the process repeats. The problem with this method is nothing gets built ,,,but my stash grows and grows and grows .............

    Or put a counter sunk machine screw inside the tubing , then mount the tubing in a vice and slowly pressing the screw into the tubing will flare it out,,,,be advised go SLOWLY

  11. gtx6970 added a post in a topic New 66 Ford Galaxie   

    This is one of those kits I am on the fence to get or not.
    A friend of mine had a 7 litre Galaxie  back in high school and we had lots of fun in the big ol sled .  For a big car it ran pretty well
  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Ford's experimental Mid-Engined Boss Mustang   

    Pretty cool idea.
    It doesnt matter if it was feasible or not.
    Manufacturers did stuff like this ( then and now ) quite  simply,,, because they could and to push the envelope
  13. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Revell 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham - New Update Pics   

    Looking pretty good so far.  I like it bigtime,,,,,,,,I've been wanting one of these to build for some time.And this thread has me thinking I want/need one
     But to me the body looks to short compared to the roof height . And  it keeps me from pulling the trigger on one,,,,,maybe I'll get one,,,,,,, just because
