  1. Hello, are you stillmessing with that GTO kit and get close to finishing? Let me know, as if have a body kit and need a good donor car,which is near impossible to find around here (Hopkinsville, Ky) thanks ron

  2. Con Brio... Looks out-standing. Bravo man!
  3. Sounds like you're tearing right through it. Should be back together in no time.
  4. Con Brio Car looks awesome. How'd the engine problem work out...? What was the final diagnosis?
  5. Con Brio, sucks to hear it. Hopefully it's just the push rod. Should be up and running quickly. Photos!!!
  6. Looking Good Chelle. I'm looking forward to seeing pics of Kims car as well. And for any of you not going to Carlyle on the 16-18, head up to Portland OR for the Oregon Trail Rally. http://www.oregontrailrally.com/ It's going to be a banner year. (And make noise for Car 33, the Alfa GTV6.)
  7. Hey - thanks for the feedback guys. Here are some additional shots in case it helps anyone better identify this kit. Anyone else have an idea? The Duke
  8. Nice history Boy from Oz I've yet to determine who was the manufacturer of my kit. Can you identify it from the front end? Duke
  9. Hello All, Been a while. Just finished the suspension and coil-overs on my car. Also have the rims and Hoosier tires mounted. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I have several other project cars competing for attention, hence the slow progress. Here's a preview... including my planned paint scheme.
  10. mclark999 Good thing you weren't traveling at speed...
  11. As noted on the web ref above: Scaglietti-built cars (including many early 60's gts) were painted with product manufactured by Glidden Salchi. (The Pininfarina builds used paint manufactured by either PPG or Duco and Duco didn't manufature any metalic paints.) The 250 GTO was manufactured by Scaglietti so it stands to bear that the Rosso Cina (China Red) refered to under the PPG Italver list is different somehow. 23 of the original ˜39 cars came from the factory painted "Rosso Cina" (China Red) 32* 250 GTOs with the series 1 body (All kits are based on this body style) 3 330 GTOs with the series 1 body 3 250 GTOs with the series 2 body 1 250 GTO with LMB bodywork *Not counted as part of the 32 is s/n 2643 GT, the GTO prototype built by Pininfarina on a 250 GT SWB chassis. (source (web-cars.com) The picture shows a series two car next to a series one. Here is a potential source: http://www.racecarnewmedia.com/paulbaber/automobiliadetail.asp?ID=164 I've also heard that the Rosos Cina paint used on the 1962 ferrari is a fiat color. However most fiat colors we're PPG Italver so this again this contradicts the the Glidden Salchi - scaglietti information...and so it goes... Any way, these are the colors I would look at... Rosso cina Italver A20456S paint. (Ferrari) Rosso Farina '71290 (Fiat) Rosso Cardinale KF-185504 '62-68 71456 (Fiat) Rosso Cina "duce" D812-69484 (Ferrari post 69) I'm going to paint mine silver or black so I haven't gone to the next level of research on the red color Good Luck.
  12. As Dave suggested, it is an Aztec or an Aztecd GT. The Design was GT40 "inspired."
  13. Wondering to have spare engineering and build time for this type of useful endevour... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVroMbHBcLg&mode=related&search
  14. A unique modification. Much easier to park, although the flowing lines and top speed have been comprimised... Still, it does represent the car of the future in some way.
