As of late you boys using silver Sharpies to trim out your cars have got me intrigued....I have been addicted to BMF for decades, but for building quick, fun shelf models your method seems to be the way to go....but where in Canada can I get just the met. silver ones, and what particular tip, style, whatever, do you guys suggest....before driving all over town wasting gas and time, fill me in if you would....thanks in advance.....the Ace....
What classic US car could i get on a budget from 0 to 15000$? I`m not super picky,it does not have to be matching numbers,the paint does not have to be shiny etc. Here are my check list. *No rust and bondo,except i could tolerate surface rust and burned paint. I`d prefer it to have everything as for original chrome/alu trim,bumpers etc. No fiberglass rubbish if it`s not original. *The interiour does not have to be 100%,cracked dash or bad carpet,bad weather strips is okay as long as it is original,no aftermarked seats,steering wheel or fluffy carpets and huge stereo. *Everything electrical should be working and hopefully original,lights,heater,wipers,etc. *No compormise are tolerated on safety as with brakes. *The car should run strong and shift smooth,no smokey exhaust or nasty oil leaks. *I would prefer a car that is used and driven regular. No "I was going to restore it but instead i let it rot for 50 years instead of selling it to someone who wanted it up and running" *V8 engine only. Manual or auto does not matter. *Would prefer power steering and brakes,but not an demand if i like the rest. What type of cars am i looking for? 67-69 Chevrolet Camaro. 73 Chevrolet Impala/Caprice sports coupe. 64 Polara 2d ht. 65 Coronet 2d ht. 70 Plymouth Cuda/Barracuda. 70-71 Dodge Challenger. 67-69 Plymouth Barracuda. 70-71 Plymouth Fury 2 door hardtop. 77-79 Chevrolet Impala/Caprice Coupe. 70-73 Pontiac T/A,Formula,Espirit or basic (Not sure what basic model is) 61-67 Chevrolet Impala 2 door hardtop (Does not have to be SS car) 63 Oldsmobile Holiday 2 door hardtop. 63-66 Buick,any 2door hardtop is interesting. (And Riviera) 61-63 Cadillac,any 2door hardtop. 65-69 Ford Mustang. Any tip of where i should be looking besides Ebay and Hemmings?
My eyes have been opened wide just recently use to just be a fred meyer and small hobby shop buyer Finally finding cars that I've wanted to purchase in model form I've seen these cars anywhere from $10-15 catch is they are on ebay or amazon I keep hearing/ reading horror stories of only box art showing at the doorstep Really don't want just a box Can any one help point me towards a reliable seller? I'm trying to build a collection because I want to eventually cast cars for only myself and/or a few friends for when I'm bored and feeling creative
