    Here is where I spend my nights. My wife calls it the dungeon.....
    also a pic of about half my stash. Half is still packed. I need more shelves.....

    I see both kinds regularly. I commonly see Volvos pulling this type of trailer.

    My scores of the day. Finally got my hands on a B model Mack. Bye bye DM cab....

  4. tonye66 added a post in a topic Any reviews of AMT 1965 Pontiac 2+2?   

    I havent seen this kit since I built a replica of my uncle's 66 Catalina back in the mid 90s. I remember it built out to be a nice kit. I too am not horribly worried about accuracy issues. I enjoy the hobby for what it is, not "how it should be"....

    I looked at the sellers feedback and you can see a few examples that have sold in recent weeks.

    Go on eBay and search for the name "butterflys213". I bought a full truck set of 5 hole split rims from that seller a couple months back. They are really nicely cast with seperate hubs for both the steer and drive axles. There were multiple sets available a few months back but haven't seen much else besides the ten hole budds and 6 spoke float wheels in a while. I sure wish Id have bought more sets. Might be worth a shot sending a message to see if they have more or will have more soon.

    Good guy to deal with. Ships a little slow but worth it. I've bought alcoas and 5 hole 2 piece rims from him and they're quite nice

    Im a huge fan of the S series trucks. I have managed to get my hands on several of the 2674 trucks for fairly reasonable prices lately. One Im already building into a Chicago snow plow. Id love to get my hands on one of the 2575's once I can find one. Seems like the 2674 was least popular and winds up on the bay quite often in unbuilt, unopened condition. I actually prefer the Ertl truck kits because of their incredible detail. All the internationals have working steering like the Macks. This is the one thing that the AMT trucks always lacked...

    That is the coolest van I've seen yet. Nice work! Everyone I've shown it to loves the bong. Super cool touch....

    Grabbed me another auto transport trailer today. Tryin to grab a couple while I can still find them.

    They are pretty rare. Before I wanted one I saw them everywhere. The 2674 was the one I never saw. I've seen exactly two on ebay in the last year and both were too far out of my budget.

    Just scored me another F2674 International today. Makes 3 in the hoard. I just wish I could come across an F2575. That's my grail kit....

    Just picked me up one of the c600 stake trucks thanks to the conversation in this thread. I got the early 2000s version with both sets of frame rails. I need to spend less time on this site because I'm going to go broke....
    This one...
  14. tonye66 added a post in a topic Was cruising the interweb and found a German model truck site, with a neat conversion of the Meng Ford F250   

    I think Trailer Trash customs makes a resin bed. He might make dually rims also. I know Scenes Unlimited has OEM dually wheels....
  15. tonye66 added a post in a topic 85 Oldsmobile Delta 88   

    Fantastic save. Another beautiful addition to your fleet

    i believe the delta 88 had Amber and red tail lights while the 88 royale had the solid red light. I had a friend who's parents had one of each model. I think they were both 83 models.
