  1. Time has a way with catching up with people. Sad when we are reminded of this, but still prompts memories of happy old times. Back when I was in Albuquerque in the late '80s / early '90s, I worked at one of the offsite airport parking lots, and the Unsers parked their cars there whenever they went flying off somewhere. Brother Al never said much, Bobby was much more talkative. On one occasion, Bobby drove in with a new Cadillac (I forget what type) when GM had only recently began outfitting them with the new Northstar engines. Since I had him in my shuttle van all by himself, I noted how
  2. Not if the supply outdistances the demand. That's a rock-bottom principle that many marketeers still fail to grasp. When the overwhelming majority of the public doesn't want something, no amount of marketeering will turn their opinion around. There's only a very limited demand for electric cars now, and no indication of any widespread change in desire for them. I hear some rumblings about states banning the sale of new gas cars - which might not even be a legal thing to do - but if they do, it'll just make the used gas car market more lucrative.
  3. Ditto on this seller's '30 Ford he's been relisting for a year if not two years by now. Started out at $115. https://www.ebay.com/itm/254900449952 For laughs one time, I PM'd the seller with a link to a nearly identical build listed at $10 and his reply was that the one I showed was an unpainted out-of-the-box one while his was a pro build with Italian red / gloss black paint.
  4. Take up forgery as a hobby. "White Pen-Touch Fine Paint Pen" https://www.hobbylobby.com/Art-Supplies/Drawing-Illustration/Pens/White-Pen-Touch-Fine-Paint-Pen/p/136705
  5. Too far back for me. But I distinctly remember the uproar the Tyrrell 019 caused with its front wing that wasn't flat all the way across.
  6. Small black fuzzy creatures. Had to look up what those were. Ya learn something every day!
  7. Although they are 32nd-ish scale, the wheels might still work with a 24th scale arched body caricature dragster ....
  8. There went da Judge. If I could operate smart phones more efficiently, I could have had a closer pic captioned "here comes.." or better yet, "here is da Judge."
  9. Turning in for the entrance to where my VW mechanic's shop is (thank heavens my ol' GTI only had an exhaust leak instead of an ailing valve!)
  10. Was thinking Anglia, but didn't trust my gut sense enough to say that, and with the knowledge base here, I figured a minimum of two guys would be able to ID what it was. Might remain in one piece here in dry AZ, as long as it holds together during burnouts.
  11. Lady robot voice at the library: "Good morning, I'm Miss Information. How may I direct your inquiry?"
  12. At the grocery store before lunch. Escapes me what make this is.
  13. Lately, all of my builds-in-progress have parts from other guys' old gluebomb builds.
