  1. Brother had one of these he bought new in '66, 390 C.I. with 4 bbl, dual exhaust, 4 on the floor in candy Apple Red with black interior. After changing to a high rise manifold with 2X4 carbs, doug's headers with cherrybomb mufflers and cheaters that was one darn fast GT Fairlane. Also he installed a "COOL" reverb stereo system...man that sounded so bad A--!

    That's true!  My house the same way!  Crazy prices. wife and I are contemplating selling our place and heading out on the road in a RV.  Need to travel before we get too old.  
    Here's a good one for you, I was going to LODO before it was LODO, I worked at the Railroad, inspected trains at Union Station back before there was amtrak!  The businesses around there were not places that most people went to, electrical stores, Grain stores, seed store etc.  The docks across from the station always had boxcars parked there. 60-70-early 80's. Then worked after that in all locations around colorado fixing railcars.  Union station used to be like a ghost town in it, but now...OMG the changes!
    My nephew has a loft on 15th and Wazee, bought it 12 years ago for 400K him and his wife are divorcing, the place was looked at and it was given a value of 2.7 MILLION!!!!!  I liked to--- you know what- my pants!  

    Go Broncos!!!!

  4. smart move!   I can't believe that there are so many people living in Castle Rock, Monument, and the Springs that commute every day to Denver area compared to when you were living here.
    you probably wouldn't even recognize LODO now!  Union Station has changed the whole thing! Amazing what has happened. Wife and I take the train from Westminster station at least once a week to go to that area for breakfast, lunch, dinner, baseball (UGH) and of course people watching!!! Not necessarily in that order.

    Too bad that we are so freaking far from Colpar, like you said...sitting in traffic just to pay high prices sucks.  But they are a great store.  Have you been to the new "Caboose hobby store" in Lakewood?  Lordy be, that place makes me...well you get the picture, or maybe better if you didn't!
    Were is the new HL located Mike? 
    Never been to hobby hut, don't get over to Junction much till the peaches come in. 

    colpar is now in Aurora, Havana and Jewel. from me it's crazy to get there.

    When I lived in Colorado Springs (97-02) and the Denver area (02-08) I used to go to Colpars all the time...was my favorite shop.  There was one way up in Greeley I'd go to a couple times a year. 

    you would drive all the way from the springs to go to colpar?  OMG!  and I complain about traffic now!  The traffic between C.S. and Denver is a freaking nightmare!  Last summer I was coming back from camping, traffic hit at 645pm on Sunday, took the better part of two hours to get to my side of Denver.

    Yes it is. The HL by Cabelas was my go to spot until this new one opened. I dont mind he Hobby Town in Longmont but that one in Westy I will avoid like the flu Colpar's Hobby Town is nice but only if you feel like sitting in traffic for 90min one way Have you been to the Hobby Hut in Grand Jct?

    I live in Brighton Colorado and our HL just opened in the last 2 weeks which I am stoked about since our Michael's wasn't very well stocked on kits but worked to get thinners, paints, ETC and I would frequent a LHS if there were any close but the closest is about an hour away and its a Hobby Town and like mentioned before they are about RC's and not real helpful with kits. 

    That new HL that opened up by Cabela's is pretty nice. Your right about Hobby Town, the one closest to me is 6 miles away in heavy traffic etc. Not a great store for model car enthusiast to say the least. Like you stated they are into RC big time!  Their supply for things we need, like paint,tools etc...terrible at best!    
    I also have abused the discount at HL. I found that they will even use it off your phone...easy peasy!
