Bill Drennen's Truck Conversions has a New Owner

10 posts in this topic

Posted

Everyone,

First, I'd like to thank all those who purchased and supported me during these past few decades in the model truck cottage industry.  It's hard to believe it has been 27 years since I first announced my Kenworth W900L resin cab conversion kit. And now, it is time for me to move on in my life and take on other activities with my 4 grand-kids and one more on the way this year.

It pleases me to announce that Jamie Rahmoeller of MOLUMINUM is the proud new owner of my resin cab & hood conversions and several of my personal custom parts I used for myself on my own custom builds. These are now owned by Jamie and I no longer have any ties, meaning royalties or licenses with the companies my conversion kits were representing.

Over the next few weeks, Jamie and I will be transitioning the resin masters (list below) from me over to him.  Please be patient with us while we are in this state of flux, you know it takes a lot of prep work to begin casting these 1/25th and 1/24th conversion kits.  When Jamie has his plans together, he will announce the approximate date when he will have the castings ready for sale.

Again, I appreciate your support and I know you will enjoy the same fine quality workmanship from Jamie as you did with me.

X2!   I was lucky enough to purchase your excellent '64-'66 Chevy 2 ton and other parts back in the day. Just curious Bill, have you ever offered the '67-'72 Chevy 2 ton?
