  1. We can do a 3 for 3 swap. I’ll send GT-40, Jaguar Saloon, and MB race car for the MB 300SL-24, 635 CSI, and NAZCA M12. I’ll have to put the grill opening back to its original shape.
  2. Here are a few things I can trade
  3. Or carve it from foam, cover with fiberglass, then remove the foam.
  4. I don’t have many 1960s cars and no Impalas. I have a 1966 Galaxie 500 missing it’s teardrop hood. It does have a stock hood. I have an old issue of the Monogram 1937 Ford slantback. Pale blue on the box art. I may have a sealed ‘29 Ford roadster on deuce rails. Not sure about that. I may be able to piece together a Revell 612 Scaglietti. Not sure about that, either. I have 2 or 3, but I chopped up the bodies to try making a model of the pre-production sketches. I’ll need to check when I get home tonight.
  5. That’s a cool car with a cool engine. It might end up as a curbside, with its M104 inline-six in a street rod. I’m sure we can work out a trade. Let me know what you’re looking for. Thanks. Lee
  6. Looking for one at a good trade value. Let me know what you have and what you want for it. Thanks. Lee
  7. It could also be inspiration for other shipping container conversions. I’ve driven by that thing many times. I never noticed it was a trailer until I stopped for lunch last week.
  8. The seller told me about a young guy who wanted to turn it into a “sleeper” (he couldn’t remember the word). He wouldn’t sell it to that guy. I shook my head and said “kids today”. I didn’t tell him that this 51 year old will turn it into a sleeper.
  9. I had one when I was a soldier stationed in Germany. It was a good little car. It had a 2.3L four cylinder and manual transmission. I could drive it a couple of hours at a time at 125mph on the Autobahn. I recently stumbled across a video of one with a Chevy LS. That was interesting. Research showed that an LS swap requires fabrication beyond my skill level, but a Mercedes V-8 can drop in with off-the-shelf parts. A stand-alone ecu is a good idea. Used Mercedes M-113 engines are not very expensive, so I plan to do that swap. Here is the car. It will be dropped off at my house next Friday. I
  10. I want to build a 190E with M113 engine swap. AMG supercharged would be really cool.
