Hey Slo Lane, ya know it's really pretty funny when you think about how and the hell does Chevy "Corvair" taillights end up being used on the rear of Ford's great Ford GT MARK IV?  :headscratch:   I could picture Mr. Carroll Shelby looking at those taillights with a funny smirk on his face!   :cool:      It's really quite funny, but I'm not sure the (Chevy Boys) felt the same way.   :stirpot:       I'm curious just what the Ford GT was bid up to, but ended with a no sale!   :redcard:                   Later Big Guy!        "GOOSE"                :peelout:

That Ford GT painting looks great. She needs to meet Camilo Pardo, designer of the 2nd gen GT and show it to him. Very approachable guy.

That’s right up there with Camilo paintings ...you have one talented daughter there Goose. Thats a wonderful gift in my book. I do have 11 of Camilo prints that were produced for Fords 100 years in limited quantities. I will say this could be one of them. But mine are not on canvas and original you lucky dog. Plus she likes cars that’s even better. Do you have anymore and maybe she could paint our cars in her spare time. Just a thought there Good buddy. I’m sure the othe fallas would be into this. Heck Chris could keep her busy for years with all the space he just found lol  ? Not to mention his new 8 car garage home he building. Can’t wait to see it completed. 

Later slo lane is back  ...just took a day off... u know nobody pays us for this

My all time favorite picture. He did it all is what this says back in 1967. Boy do we miss him or what ? That’s why I’ve got so many of these MK IV ‘s diecast cars. My wife lets me keep this cabinet ( with car stuff) just off the kitchen so I can walk by it every day several times. It used to be house type decorations and mostly her stuff. Took 15 years to slowly move that stuff in. It’s her antique cabinet she inherited from her mother 25 years ago. Even the glass is wavy since it’s an antique. The rest of the house is her’s except for my men’s room. 

Hey mongooes finally got that master bath done that she has been craving for all these years. The house is only 18years old but we have been updating things as we go. Hell we used to move into a new house every 5 years but not anymore.

Hey "All" you guys, Thanks alot for "All" your nice comments on my original GT-40 painting done by my daughter as a gift for me!     I've always told her that a gift she makes means a lot more to me than a boughten one!  :thumbsup:     She's always so busy with work stuff and my 5 year-old grandson that I'm lucky she got it done, and yes it was a total surprise!    She's the type of person who doesn't realize how good she could be, and she worries about things way too much!  :yup:     Thanks Again "All" you guys!   :)

I've got the set as well (yeah, surprised, right?), set number 500 of 500. I've also got a few Camillo prints I've posted up here as well. I've met him, and was there when he delivered an original painting he did for a friend of mine( yeah, not cheap).

That said, your daughters work is truly impressive and I hope it carries her far and well. She deserves it.

Hey Falcon, very cool that you have some of (Camillo Prints), and yes I do remember that you have previously posted some on here!     Original paintings by a very good "Artist" are not cheap!     Thanks for the very kind words on my daughter's work, and I'll be glad to pass it on to her!   :)

Hey Chris...Cool picture of both car #1 ,car #2 and car #3.  Took this from your post. Even the diecast have the right color mirrors and locations except one......car #1 by Shelby collectibles has the passenger side mirror in the wrong location.  The 4th car down is the #3 Brown MK IV . How did that GT40 # 57 sneak in between those 3 big block 427 monster MK IV ‘s  ??? 

Oh and when they ran those early gt40 engines in the dynamometer room my dad was in there setting up the intake and exhaust plumbing . He used to come home and tell me about his day at Ford. I was still in high school . Detroit was a cool place for car crazy kids back in the 60’s and early 70’s. Woodward Ave and all the crazy drive in cruising we did. My sister dated a ford engineer that drove a cool as hell modified 70 Boss 302. I would grab him before my sister knew he was there and discuss his boss. She wasn’t a happy camper at the time. 

However I don’t regret leaving there after graduating college. The girls were as cold as the weather. Heck I meant my wife in south fla.

Hey all you guys, I'll be posting some very cool pics of one of my 1/18th Exoto,64 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible.    This car has the very special paint, (Standox Daytona Paradise), which includes a 11 step paint process.  This special paint has a impressive display of colors with blue and green shades thru bright emerald, then a shimmer of gold to a deep blue. The car consists of over 250 scaled precision parts that are hand assembled and it has a carpeted interior, fabric seatbelts and photo etched hardware! It's now a "Retired Model" at $1,895. :cool:    Hope You all enjoy it as much as I do!!!!    :camera:

Hey Mongoose that’s a sweet GS. Exoto doesn’t disappoint on these GS models. I’ve got the blue coupe and think that’s a cool piece also. I’ll work on getting the big butt back.

Hey Slo Lane,  yes "Exoto Models" don't disappoint when it comes to being some of the best and accurate detailed diecast models out there, and that's what you pay for!!    I'm glad that I bought the majority of my Exoto diecast  when they first started coming out, because later they started to become quite pricey!   :thumbsup:

Ok you know I like mach 1 models. This one is 1:32 and it only says S on the bottom. Didn’t cost much like 10 years ago and they came in 5 colors. That has to be some Hugh chrome around the front hood. It’s also got the ZL1 corvette spoiler on the back..:hysterical2:  Hey Chris you like that spoiler ? 

The 6th picture is a original ford dealership clock from the 60’s that I keep out in the garage. Hope you likey .:puppy_kiss:

Hey Slo Lane,  lots of very "Cool Stuff"!     Very nice Dealer Clock and oil can collection.    Your red Mach1 sure does have some unique hubcaps or rims on it, and the tires almost remind me of the snow tire tread look from what I can tell!           Later Big Guy!           "GOOSE"          :peelout:         P.S.   I'll post some cool stuff later!  :)
