    Not in a vault, just garaged, under a car cover, and it's only driven about once a month, when the weather is good. It was the first new car I got with my own money, and I was still in college. Thought I just should preserve her. Those pictures are from 2014. Now, 2016, she has 13250 kilometers on the clock.
    It's the same stuff with my '82 Galaxie I bought from the first owner back in 1997 with 36560 kilometers from new. Now, 2016 the car has 78000 kms, still has all it's factory paint, vinyl roof, upholstery, and never used spare.

    The S-10 kit from AMT needs a lot of work to be turned into a Brazilian S-10.
    Mine has the 4.3 liter engine, but even tough its a 4X2 truck, it has the torsion bar front suspension. And I suck at modifying bodies...
    This is my truck, a '98 special series allusive to the '98 World Cup:

    Isuzu Hombre
    Anyone knows if is it available a model kit of the Isuzu Hombre?
    I ask, because it was based on the Brazilian built '94-'98 Chevy S-10. I own a '98 S-10 and wanted to build a model of her.

    1966 Ford Galaxie R-Code
     
    This one I built over the weekend, as I was toying with the idea to build a "day two" Galaxie. 
    Like if someone ordered a 7 Litre with the R-Code engine (dual quad 427) and did some basic mods to make the car sound and handle better than the other big boys in the neighborhood. 
    Stripe delete, a set of Cragars, big'n little bias ply all around, lowered front end for that bad boy looks, glasspacks, and a few Stewart Warner gauges.
    All reversible mods, so the car is not disrespected and turned into some sort of aberration. 
    like when I do a car that is not 100% stock, i don't care much about taking time to do correct details, it's not perfect, but sure looks like a bow tie eater.
    Paint is not factory correct, as it's Tamiya Italian red, but it dries fast.
    Mirrors? With 425hp under the hood, who needs mirrors?

    Great idea. Will look if the Comet Grille can be modified into a Galaxie grille. Just have to find the kit.

    That's what I think when I see Steven Guthmiller's builds...
    he is the one that inspired me to try on adding more detail.

    This is soooo Cool!!!
    Both look like little time capsules. I think you did the right thing by not doing full rebuilds on them.

    The white stripes were done with white decal paper, cut the thinnest possible, then applied to the body. That alone took me a day. The decal has the tendency of breaking into multiple pieces, due to the fact the stripes are so thin.
    As a Galaxie lover, and a purist, I really don't like what Leno did to that '66. He modernized the car with parts that didn't exist in 1966, and used lot's of non FoMoCo parts to fit his personal taste. I see no necessity or wisdom on changing what left the factory perfect, like a '66 Galaxie 500 7 Litre, a '32 Ford Model 18 Victoria, or a '57 Fairlane 500 Town Sedan, to use my all time top three cars as examples.
    By other hand I really like what he did to that blue Duesemberg he found in a garage, inactive for decades. He did the necessary to make the car roadworthy again, but kept things like the factory paint, and upholstery. For me that's the way to go. A car is only original once.
    I have nothing against restoring cars, but I think it only should be done to cars that are past the preservation point. 
    For me a car that is original unrestored will always be better than even a 100 point resto.

    That's an awesome paint job.

    Thanks! 
    Ford has the habit of reusing bits and pieces of styling, or let's say, to get inspired by themselves. Even tough, it's rare that the resulting parts are the same. That happens to the grille of the Mercury, and taillights of the '70 Ford just like you said.
    I think the best is to start from scratch anyway. I did it before, making a front bumper and grille for a 1:12 '57 Bel Air, but the scale factor and the design of the Chevrolet parts made things a lot easier. 
    My idea is to make a negative mold in clay, and cast a prototype grille and rear fascia in resin. The problem is: I can't make a perfect mold. I want it to be as good as a kit part, and not a terrible bend and inaccurate thing like most aftermarket resin bodies and parts. 
    I even got a resin body, a four door conversion body on ebay that is in fact a '65 Galaxie, but that thing is unusable. The proportions are all wrong.
