  1. And coincidentally, several YB-40s show up in that same scene in The Best Years of Our Lives:
  2. Anyone have a junk AMT Ski-Drag Boat trailer frame? I just need it to get one crossmember: It looks to be the right size and the right center drop to make this 2WD Jeep DJ3A front axle I need: Thanks for looking!
  3. ^^^ I'll second Mike's motion, and not just because I was an editor and proofreader for the third and fifth (current) editions of the book .

  8. Pierce Arrow - I know you said "minimal detailing" but I hope you could make it look a bit less toy-like. Good luck!
  9. Long-running project; when I started it was a current-style street machine - now it's a nostalgic late-'70s street machine.
