....did some quick math :o
  Using a recent AMT truck kit purchase against what is shown in the advertisement, there has been a just shy of 3000% ...thats THREE THOUSAND percent increase in kit prices.  As an example an AMT truck kit being priced around $70.00 in 2024 verses costing 2 or 3 dollars in the early '70's
    Judging by the cars shown, I would place that add around 1970-1971

That ad popped up on Pinterest and thought everyone would enjoy it. Speedracer and I talked about Woolworth's model kit sales and couple of days ago. I would go to the Woolworth's store in Oak Ridge, TN in the early to mid 70's to buy models. When they put them on sale it was like the heavens opened and angels would sing! Great memories

I've got a short track Busch Grand National started. It's the Sterling Marlin #14 TN Vols national championship car from the 1999 racing season (championship was won in 1998). Been wanting to do this one since I got back in the hobby a couple of years ago. So far, so good but everything is in the the pre-build, painting phase. I've been a TN Vols fan all of my life.


Finished the #25 Galaxie Modified Stocker a week or so ago. Speedracer and I did a buddy build. I really enjoy those old modified stocker kits. Got several more lined up to build.

Thanks for looking.

I have no idea how I missed this. Excellent reproduction of the real car. You were smart to use a resin nose. I wish I had tried harder to find one for the IROC camaro I did a while back. Would have looked a lot better.

Changing out those big oversized kit tires sure makes a difference. Nice job all around.  Thanks for sharing
