  1. I think what you're doing is a fantastic thing, but that '64 Buick Skylark convertible is a barrel of errors. I have that one too and I'm just starting to try to figure out how to correct it. There isn't a panel or edge on it that's correct.
  2. I hope it's just for the month, Danny has always had great products. PSH needs to invest in a pressure pot and spend more time on their molds. Just saying from experience. Joseph at Fireball has some really nice truck tires. I bought a handful of different ones a while back. My only gripe with his site is he doesn't have preview pics so you have to open the links to see what they look like.
  3. Stunning, definitely. It's a level of quality for the rest of us to strive for!
  4. Awesome! Great job on the look!
  5. Tom, We spent most of a Toledo NNL weekend with Bob several years ago. He told me how they created that box art which was pretty cool. He also signed my '57 kit box along with an original '55 Chevy box and told the story about the names on the side of that car which was hilarious. Sounds like they had a lot of fun with it back in the day.
  6. I know of one, possibly two coming soon from 'lil bro's shop of a more vintage style.
  7. I disagree, as long as it's not a $30 kit. It seems to be a good one for unskilled builders and people who just don't want to spends hours detailing the engine bay but want a nice looking shelf model.
  8. I got mine today. The biggest difference between the '67 & '68 is in fact the taillight and rear bumper. The '67 has the rectangular taillights in a panel above the bumper, the '68 has round(ish) lights in the bumper. So there would need to be some decent mods to make this kit a '68 but the front end wouldn't be that bad.
  9. Does anyone make a '68 conversion kit? I want to build one like I had many years ago.
  10. My son and one of his co-workers did a sound gig in the Cleveland area a few weeks ago. Apparently the Cavs had been at this location and they played someone the weekend before that had a player (now two I guess) that tested positive for CV19. So... my son and his co-worker were sent home immediately after they found out and told to self-confine for two weeks. They were going to be paid for it, until a few days ago. The entire staff, here in the USA, England and Australia were all laid off yesterday until the end of April when the company will re-visit the status. Fortunately, they will be abl
  11. Ok so not the car itself, but the particular engine. I've never had a big block Buick engine, only the 300s and one 225 V6 in my '64s and '65s.
  12. Yep, it's a Highway Series which is American. I looked at the others but nothing fit or felt as good as this. I bought it new in 2004 and the finish wear is real, not faked. There's a large spot under my forearm that you can't see there. It has vintage pickups and a really cool sound recorded straight into a deck. I started out playing drums along with CCR, Elton John, Frampton and KISS in the mid-70s. After playing guitar for a year I discovered the bass and it was off to the races from there on. I mostly play rock, motown, blues and once in a while metal. The bands I've been in in rec
