These came in the mail today from Shapeways - gorgeous 1/25th scale Stromberg 97s by Maple Leaf Modelworks ( https://www.shapeways.com/shops/maple-leaf-modelworks?section=1%2F25+Hot+Rod+Parts&s=0 ) by Chris Drysdale (spex84). I just had to hit 'em with some Tamiya X-31 Titan Gold and grab a quick snapshot. Aren't they nice?

Flea Market Day!  The '50 Ford still has the Hobby Lobby $29.99 price tag on it. But the seller was only asking $10.  Grabbed the '69 Firebird mostly for the OHC 6 engine.  The Charger box is ratty but everything  inside is still sealed.  And at $5, the sealed Revell '66 GTO was too cheap to pass up.

The MPC '32 Chevy kit chassis is partly built, along with its hot-rod Chevy V8.  The .30-cal machine gun, fire plug and a mail sack are also built. And part of the "Gangbuster" figures are glued together.

The kit is missing a few minor parts, but the really important stuff is in there and untouched: the stock panel delivery body, rear doors and "paddy wagon" interior parts.  Also the fenders with dual spare-tire wells.  

As everybody knows, the Gangbusters Chevy panel was later mutilated into the Dark Shadows "Vampire Van" and can't be un-vampired.  But the chassis in that kit is identical to the original MPC '32 Chevy release and the stock versions later released by AMT (Connoisseur Classics, Blue Ribbon Rod etc.)
