  1. Black wheels look great.... on beaters. And fleet vehicles. I'm fine with large diameter wheels BUT the fake bead lock thing can go away any time.
  2. An 18 year old platform is being discontinued? In a day and age where an 8 year product cycle is considered long? Color me shocked. πŸ€ͺ And don't be afraid of Chrysler going all EV any time soon, seeing as how Stellantis has just sunk a few billion into the new Hurricane internal combustion engine. Be more worried about the proliferation of more Fiat platforms and parts. That's not just for Jeeps anymore if the new Dodge Hornet is any indicator. Although that DS might make a fine Chrysler with a little badge engineering.
  3. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I remember that Windstar. Last time I saw it it had waist high grass around it and covered in tree sap by a shed!
  4. Looks great. I also have to ask what's the story with all those Avantis off to the side?
  5. I know there are lots of people who like beaters and junkers here, so here ar e a couple of roahced 65s I've seen locally. Me and my buddy Chuck Most took a mini road trip to look at the green one. He said it was too rough even for him so thre's that. Lol
  6. What? You aren't a fan of the 90s base model look? πŸ˜‚
  7. Why on earth would you use a floor polish as a clearcoat? I'm having trouble with the logic to that.
  8. Yes. It is basically a stock Pinto with the Popper stuff optional.
  9. My local Walmart has them. Two weeks ago on a cardboard island and now they're on a shelf. I picked up the Popper Pinto and regretted it once I got home and opened it. πŸ˜‚ I might go back for the 69 Torino Cobra. We'll see. Or maybe I should just take up my buddy's offer to go to Dean's. Been too long since I built anything and I don't think the Pintos gonna spark the inspiration. πŸ˜‚
  10. I just got this kit, the first model I bought in about eight years. I don't think it will signal my return to building. πŸ˜‚ Ya dis a bang up job on this. It looks great, even greater when you consider what you started with!
  11. I drove a 93 XL for 13 years and it never looked that nice. πŸ˜‚ I have all the AMT 9th gen F150 kits, maybe someday I'll build at least a couple of them.
  12. Mr. Ross said that more than once, it was his catch phrase. πŸ˜‚ Your model is a good representation of how most of these looked by 1985 or so.
  13. Looked ok to me but what do I know. πŸ˜‚ I remember building the Lincoln MKVIII LSC years ago, same kit with a shrunken Lincoln body, and I recall it being "a fun one" if you know what i mean.
  14. If it was orange and a lot more beat up it would look just like one I used to see all the time by my aunt's place. Right down to the (faded in this case) for sale sign.
  15. Wow. In high school I briefly had a 78 Power Wagon in a similar shade of blue to the original version but with an identical rust pattern to the second version, lol. You definitely nailed the look.
