Mopar engines article?
Posted by nottheband on Monday, July 4, 2011 11:01 PM

G'day Jim.  The recent feature article on Ford engines (by Tim Boyd?) and his follow-up in the forum was interesting and very informative, and I would like to know if there are similar features planned for Mopar & GM engines in the future.  I would certainly appreciate it.

Steve, yes and yes. 

The next issue of Scale Auto will include Part 2 of the Muscle V8 engine series, with Buick, Olds, Pontiac, and AMC muscle-era V8's. 

Jim and I were just discussing Part 3 earlier today, tentatively scheduled to be Mopar muscle-era engines.  I will start work on that article over the holidays at year end.  (These articles are pretty work-intensive and it helps to get started when I have some scheduled time off from work.)

Glad you enjoyed the Ford Muscle V8's story and hope you find the next one equally useful....TIM

I'm currently building a '67 Mustang GT from AMT and was happy to see that the 289 Hi-Po is very well represented in this kit. I'll definitely color-match the details from the pics in that article. Thanks, and I can't wait for the Mopar one!!!!

Still would like to see a model kit of the '97-'01 Jeep Cherokee... SOMEBODY?!?!   ANYBODY?!?!

G'day Tim

Thanks for replying, and I'm pleased to hear about your future engine articles, especially the Mopars.  I look forward to reading Part 2, and will try to be patient while waiting for Part 3.  I admire your model building skills and your magazine work, and can only wonder how you fit it all in? 

Thanks again, and best regards ....  Steve
