    Here's a truck I worked on, the wheels were so small I replaced them with, ready for this?, necklace beads.....

    Is this a Chevy? It started out all black and with little wheels. I got it at the GV trade show for .50 cents. :thumb:


    ... and here it is after I added a green fender, silver paint on the glass, some dirt and most notably, those wide, bald tires. :D

    You're right Catt. I opened the hood, even its tiny HO scale engine was painted Chevy Orange...Man...Talk about detail.
    Any way..Gonna add some more to this great thread.
    Here's the '53 Caddy I thought I posted. A Busch model.
    Next, we have two tankers parked at Fullards Oil. Both are Boleys.
    A Boley Heavy Duty wrecker.
    Boley, Roll-on/roll-off, with a Life Like tractor
    2000+ Pontiac. Wal-Mart cheapy. More fitting my era.

    Glen, How about a tour of your Layout? :thumb: Looks good from what little I see

    Well, I would but most of my pictures are done using a 35mm camera and then made into a photo CD when I get the film developed. so a tour would take a bit of time and some luck with the camera. All I can show right now are pictures that I've already taken.

    I picked up a pair of his and hers 65 shelby cobras, HO scale, at Wallyworld for $2 each.

    darn, I wish I could learn to read the directions for this new camera to adjust the focus...:curse:

    And that Lamborghini isn't?

    yeah it is , it came in the same pack the VW was in. It just seem to go with the trucks. I guess I should have mentioned it as well. I have a way to make things clear as mud sometimes.

    If the Lamborghini doesn't fit in with your layout/era, or you don't want it - I do

    Viperman: Yeah you can have it. It's way to modern for my 70s early 80s era layout. A countache ? would work better. I might even have a few others you can have too.

    If I happen to come across anything like that I'll let ya know. I do have a 74 Ford E100 van I bought for the paintjob if you want. I does have a missing rear and cracked front bumper, thanks to my 2yr old.

    Also have a Viper SRT-10 convertible that will see the layout
