Well Dave its finished now, I just haven't had a chance to take the pic, the 29 PU on the left is still under construction, the 32 coupe is done after a car I saw in Street Rodder magazine [not an exact copy though], and on the far right is a 49 Ford thats just finished.

I love thew AMT '58 Chev. It goes together well and always looks good. It is amazing to think that the moulds were made in the earily 1960's. I just wish that AMT would produce a '58 Pontiac to work off this kit.

Check out mine!





It is a Laquer Metalic Green with a white top. I built it in 1996 and won a second place ribbon at the Vancouver I.P.M.S..

CHRISTINE was a Plymouth Fury. Same year though. I would like to know what other cars from 1958 are out there that you could find on the hobby shops in the last 3 years.

So far there is the '58 Chevy by AMT, the '58 Caddy by LEE, the '58 Thunderbird by Revell, the '58 Plymouth Fury by AMT, and the '58 Red Star Limos by Trumpeter. I can't think of any others, can you? Let me know here.

Great cars Gasser!
If anyone out there can help, I'm desperate too know what the creature is on the decal on the 32 coupe, just infront of the drivers door, and what company? it signifies. I've always thought it might be a roadrunner?Confused

Christine was a 58 plymouth fury. I had to look in the book to find out for sure because I also thought "she" was a 57. Smile

you can go to www.mrhorsepower.com and order the new style one's but they are not like the real one's we got the the Hot Rod Northern Nats. I can put them on the Fenders and you could not tell that they where stickers. Thats how clear they are. I have two Sets for My two cars this summer when i pull them back out for the show's.

The 1949 Ford and 1958 Chevy were both offered by AMT. The 1958 Chevy is a current re-release and is avalible anywhere. As for the 1949 Ford, AMT hasn't released it since the 1990's so finding it would be quite hard to do at the present time. However, since AMT is releasing these older kits in large quantities, I'm sure that getting a '49 Ford at your local Walmart will be a possibility in the near future.

But if you want one TODAY, I would suggest going to a well stocked hobby shop that has a lot of older car models. Otherwise, I would try the internet for your search.
