  1. I realise that the late Dusty Hill wasn't part of the Moving Sidewalks ( Billy Gibbons and company ) , but this psychedelic sound --exclusive to Texas ; think 13th Floor Elevators --set the tone for ZZ's early sound (really , their career) .

  2. It would appear as though Hermes was having a bad day ( perhaps a labour dispute ?) when 'e twoth travelling with this package .
  3. Still waiting on some photos of the contents of the 1/32 scale Nova...
  4. Thanks much for sharing that . What are decals "1" and "2" supposed to represent ? They appear to be the 1972 & later "universal" side marker lamps -- what do the instructions call for ? Now , why in the deuce didn't that decals sheet find its way into the U.S. market kit ????
  5. Would like to see photos of the kits' contents , please .
  6. Let's not forget the gorgeous Jacqueline Bisset as Frank Bullitt's girlfriend !
  7. While I haven't applied them yes , I did purchase one of those decal sets for my MPC 1978 Chevy Pickup ( two wheel drive version ) . I'm interested in the 'wood' for the bed ; the side markers ; and the 'Scottsdale' emblem decals . Just eyeballing the decals and the MPC parts , it appears as though the Revellogram decals will work perfectly .
  8. Quite a nice WK41U8A there ! I can just hear that 850cfm ThermoQuad's secondaries opening-wide , fighting to suck that bonnet into that last-of-the-440-cube engine ! And , that IT's 55 sticker brings back some memories of that dreadful 55 mph speed limit of 1974-1995 . Keep 'em coming ! Work your magick on the 1970 Galaxie police-taxi next (but , keep that BOSS 429 in your parts' bin ) .
  9. I remember when that AMT '53 Corvette was new ( I bought my first copy at the GEMCO in Downey , Ca. , in 1977 -- I was 7 years old ) . Oddly , I don't remember any issues with assembly , even back then ! Blissful ignorance perhaps ? Here's what its instruction sheet looks like : AMT T 310 1953 Corvette | Scale Auto Model Kit Reviews & Reference (proboards.com)
  10. Relisted ? Perhaps the original bid winner backed out of the deal ? MPC 1969 DODGE CHARGER R/T SEALED | eBay
  11. 1975 & later B-bodies have completely different engine compartments than their predecessors' (see images ) . For an accurate boiler room in the 1977-1978 Monaco [ et alia ] , one would have to scratch build the majority of it . Then there's the 'generic' Chrysler big block / 4-speed combo... and the rear axle assembly is incorrect ( the 8.75" diff was dropped after 1974 . The 9.25" --resembles a Dana 44-- rear is the only correct rear for a 1975 & later B , C , M , and R body ( small blocks sometimes employed the 8.25" rear ) . I'm planning to keep the bonnet shut when I get
  12. Here's a rare gem for y'all : Nissan Turbo Diesel six banger in a Scout II . I'm a big fan of Vice Grip Garage , and this episode exemplifies my fandom : FORGOTTEN International Scout NISSAN TURBO DIESEL - Will it RUN AND DRIVE 600 miles? - YouTube
  13. Haha ! I'm only 51 -- but I do enjoy employing arcane references and nomenclature . The other name -- Tuff-Grip -- was the style of sporty steering wheel offered by Chrysler from late 1970 - 1980 .
