  1. yep snaps solves the problem,  The down side to the snaps is if you plan to have your car judged at a National meet there would be a deduction but it is not a big deal

  2. Back in the mid 1970 there was a new Ford dealer in western Kansas called Per Hole Ford  He had an advertising tag that was on the front of all new cars sold and most used cars sold  I kniw the dealership was in business in 1974 and 1975  At some point after the mid 70s it became Liberal Ford in Liberal Kansas  Kansas does not have a front tag so dealers make their business tag and put it on the front of cars sold  Per Hole had a tag that pictured a Pear with a hole in it  I am searching for one of those tags  there has to be lots of those around and most have been thrown away  please take a look at old stuff that you might have laying around  i have searched salvage yards and have not had any success  If you have one or can find one i will offer a finders fee  contact me direct at 316-655-1099 pr booreatta@cox.net

  4. It was always story time with Bob  He told me 2008 in Flint that this was his town  My wife and I spent time at an ice cream store a couple of times. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all who was lucky enough to have known him. I remember the TV News spot he did on the Reatta cruse in Flint in 2008  Thanks Bob  Rest in peace

    The wheels weigh about 21# each. That makes them worth $ 11.55 each so I guess you are right with about 50 of them, that is more than I was thinking. Maybe I will take them to the crusher.


    Jim just melt a set down and have them painted yellow to look like a Coors cans. Stop by Colorado  AND GETEM FILLED WELL YOU KNOW THE DRILL

  6. Matt I can understand all of the hoops that you have to jump thru to get the car to drive friendly  The lane departure would drive me totally insane..the only feature I like is the auto on headlights. My Camaro has auto on and i think it works well  I hate the bluetooth phone hookup so i dont use it

    The other issue i have with new cars is the headlights that I have to look at being so bright.. sometimes its hard to see the road when they are comming at you.  if they can develop all of the stuff that new cars do why cant the fix the bright lights in the city  this is a safety issue that needs to be fixed

    Im with Pete new car manufactures have lost the way AGAIN

  7. Jim getting back to values the pewter car is rare and the last one that I know of was sold in the $500.00 range in Arizona but that was several years ago  there were 3 different versions that Barney has found  One was the select 60 tag on the base. the one that you have and one that read Pacesetters on the tag on the wood base. The pewter cars mostly likely all were molded at the same time as all of the ones I have seen all rocked slightly when put on a flat surface and I have seen 9 or 10 from to 2003 to 2015. Check on the muffler I have seen PROOF, PROTO. and a number engraved on the mufflers  I dont know if that makes a diff in value or not. 

    I think Padgett is correct the interest in the Reatta is down somewhat so who knows what it will bring in the long run  

    I have seen the clock and the flag but I dont remember prices

    My suggestion would be EBay or FB marketplace there are folks out there that are looking for the items

    It would be really nice if when you dig out the car if there is any information as to who made the pewter car.  I have searched for the mfg and I know Barney Eaton has also with no luck  As far as I know there is no information as to how many pewter cars were made. 

    Good Luck
