1963 Pontiac Tempest/ Cold Start
April 10th, 2011
Per Request of e-Bay bidders, I took video of my Tempest (Auction number 280654362489) running from cold start 3 minutes in to warm up so bidders could get a feel for what condition the motor is in. Also see other video of footage from under the hood with motor running.
AMT 1958 scale model cars all 11 original issues Buick Chevrolet Ford
This video shows all the original issue AMT and sister company SMP first generation 1/25 3 in 1 model cars. These models would set the standard still used today in model car building. Simplistic by todays standard they were a welcomed toy to children who loved the new and custom cars of the 50's. All these models are restored from old build ups from their era when new in 1958. I hope you enjoy seeing them again or perhaps for the first time.
Final 69 nova update and new kit!
So, I finished the nova. It came out great. I also picked up a new kit for the bigblockluv and 1984rx7350 contest in a few months, so I'll save it till then. I will be building the car for the contest only, and building the other part now to go with another project.
Thanks for watching!
