About oldcarguy

I am doing this because I didn,t realize how bad it was. Now, there let,s start over. I now seventy(age flub before!) I HAVE been building these things since they were wood and plastic combined ! I was married for 47 years to one of the hobby,s biggest supporters.She said it was better to have modelers in the house creating something,than out at the local saloon!! (her words) she is with the angels.

My new wife had the same attitude ! (she doesn,t know me ,BUT,I can bring a smile to her face with a finished model.) These cars ,trucks, etc. have allowed me to keep my mind and hands busy.I will admit to creating some customs(NONE FINISHED YET!) That are at best weird or at worst ,just downright ugly to some. That,s alright ,if I can show someone an easier way to enjoy the hobby ,I am here.That,s why I still build ALL sorts of models. In all ,they still more fun than a barrel full of wet cats!!

  Speaking of wet cats ! I have recovered from a very bad incident with the ticker . Now , what do you think was the first thingI saw in my cardiac doctor's office .A bright red , 1966 DODGE CHARGER model in 1/25 ! That hit it off for me .Now I am building for the sheer pleasure of keeping my heart's rate sane and steady . See , model cars are good for you !
