  1. As a license plate restorer, and collector, I would say, that plate appears to be original. I've seen several plates, with the same defects, as that one has.
  2. My RED 1985 Oldsmobile Calais Supreme;
  3. My 1958 Cadillac is 1/24 scale, it's as close as I can afford. It's painted in the original 1958 Cadillac Desert Gold Bronze, with a white vinyl top and vermillion interior.
  4. Thank you for the picture. A better home, that compass could not have had.
  5. That sounds like a great place for it. I'm happy it found a good home.
  6. I always thought 80's cars, were only worth what their value is as scrap metal.
  7. I will let you know when I receive your check, and the compass is shipped. Thank you tom
  8. Here's mine, 1965 Corvette, 1985 Oldsmobile Calais (Bought New in 1985) 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT(Daughter Bought it New), 2015 Corvette (Museum Delivery)
  9. Northwest Houston, Texas, Shell gasoline; $1.77 for regular $2.44 for premium as of 8/23/2020
  10. I just picked up this 1/25 scale, 1963 Riviera Model Kit; It has been assembled, but not painted.
  11. My high school car was a 1959 Mercury Montery. It was rescued from behind a Texaco gas station, for $100. That was in January 1966. This is the only picture I have of it.
  12. Out of my eight vehicles, four have manual transmissions, and four have automatic transmissions.
  13. That will not work on a 1966 Mustang. 1967 was the first year the Mustang had in dash air conditioning. The controls showing in the first picture above the dash vent, is for a 1968 Mustang.
  14. This is not a historic Buick Dealership, but I took this off my then new 1977 Buick Century. At the time, I was living in Melbourne Florida. I wanted a white with blue interior Century. Lane Pontiac, Buick did a dealer trade, and what came in was, Blue with White interior. Before I left the dealership, I pulled off the emblem. That's all I have left of my 77 Century.
  15. 211 are dealer promos. 391 That I built myself. With several in process. And, plenty still in boxes. I’ve been building and collecting model cars, since my Father gave me my first dealer promo in 1955. Yes, I do still have it. Many of the cereal box cars, I got out of the cereal boxes myself. In one way I’m lucky, my 23 year old granddaughter, wants all the models, and my 65 Corvette. She has a strong interest in cars, both big and small.
