Thanks for the "Father's Day" happy-wishes Mark! That' a cool kit! Cool probably 1:24/1:25 scale? I was born in "60".. and from a  very young age, I could name the make/model of just about any American car/truck on the road. Not so easy to do that these days.. although I still try.

Remembering my "Grandfather" (my Mom's dad) and the car that he owned back in the early 1960's. Gramps was a "Mercury Man"..

1957 Turnpike Cruiser.. (not a photo of his car.. but exactly the same)

Ah...  a 57 Chevy.. Very Nice Eric. (I'll disregard your comment about the Mercury.. ) Gramps replaced that 57 Turnpike Cruiser with a white 62 Monterey "ragtop". Then came a 65 Montclair Marauder   Smoking  (390 V8) He used to tow a 27 foot Franklin travel-trailer (seasonally) back and forth to/from "King's Campground" on Lake Manchaug in Sutton, MA. Gramps would brag how that "390" would pull that trailer up a steep highway-grade at 65mph+.. without skipping a beat. It was equipped with an electronic trailer-brake controller.. and an "Automatic-Radio" brand 8-track tape-player!

Dad wasn't a true car guy, but he loved style. Bought this 1953 Nash Statesman new to be followed by several Nash products.

No disrespect to your Dads Car Likes Or your Family at all Roddie , Just saying , did you have to take the spare off to get in the trunk?? Yes the Muscle the old engines had when running right was amazing what they could do !! My Dad rest in a box at this time in his bedroom and i do truly miss and love him ..... I will probably take him over to see his mother at the graveyard today , they would like that since they got along better than his Dad >< Anyway he had a Rambler Mod?? with a V8 that would run 106 in second gear (automatic) Always reminds me of the time i washed it while he was at work and had to call him to say it had a flat tire >> everything was OK till he got home and found i had spun the tire and caught something in the dirt that flattened the tire . But whipping coming up / and the time i filled up the tank for him with water ((( heck i didn't know no better ))) Do NOW !!! LOL Happy Fathers Dad Friends !! I Love This Forum!
