  1. Both MPC and AMT retooled their Corvette kits for 1977, removing many optional parts, dropping the convertibles, and I am fairly certain, both replacing the BB with a 350. I have examples of the kits, but can't easily put my hands on them at the moment. AMT's Special Feature tout was a CB radio, good buddy.
  2. Well, eBay vendor n2flying27 shows 385 sold. It certainly hit his clientele.
  3. Courageous, ambitious, and well expected project.
  4. These toothless alligator clips are very small; made of copper so the tips are malleable.
  5. According to the "Monsters In Motion" website, the Atlantis Mooneyes kit will contain the Chrysler engine in addition to the Chevrolet engine. https://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart/item-list-ko-c-13_193/mooneyes-dragster-125-scale-revell-reissue-model-kit-by-atlantis-p-28714.html Maybe verbiage taken from the original packaging?
  6. Reminds me of a "Bad Chad" style auto. Way cool.
  7. I would use the newest AMT 1957 Corvette (currently AMT1015, AMT1016 Car Culture Series, but readily available in several previous stock and street machine issues) along with detail bits from the Revell 1962 Gasser. I think the newer AMT 57 is far superior in every way to the old MPC kit. The MPC Street Machine straight axle has a single eliptical spring and an A frame radius rod setup. It is awkward and not typical of most 60's gasser setups.
  8. One man's junk is another man's treasure. If one has an interest in early-mid 60's drag racing, the Hippie Hemi has an accurate chassis and running gear, coming from the 1965 Garlit's Wynn's Jammer kit. It is typical of many dragsters of the era and applicable to lots of projects. Many may question the marketing decision, or not like the subject matter, but the contents cannot be labeled "junk". There are a lot of new kits that have created excitement on this forum, but have little or no appeal to me; 70's Mopars, Bronco, '76 Gran Torino, '83 Olds, any post-1970 Nascar, Porsche, Ferrari, etc.
  9. I have long planned to use the larger 63-67 Palmer Corvette larger "scale" convertible body as the basis for a salt lake streamliner, and the smaller 99 cent kit body as a salt lake go kart streamliner. I also think the smaller convertible body might make credible pedal car and have several kits and built-ups stashed with those thoughts in mind.
  10. Agreed! Now, with the Mustang MY18 refresh revealed, is a perfect time tool a full detail 2018 Mustang (along with the current GT350, to be greedy). The fact I own a 2016 GT has absolutely nothing to do with my desire. Well, mostly nothing.
  11. I ordered a new car December 4, 2015. It was delivered February 1, 2016. This is the first car I have purchased for myself in 22 years and it is the first performance car I have had since 1988. I am having soooooooo much fun!
