Good stuff Satty 101 thumbs There actually used to be a forum on this site specifically for model cars.
How easy is it to find the model cars that you want to build in America i.e. if I wanted buy a Chrysler Neon, a Hyundai Accent 4-door, a Hyundai Accent coupe, a Golf VR5, a Mitsubishi Eclipse and a Toyota Supra then would they all be there on the shelves of any hobby shop?
I'm guessing that the answer's "no" but can you enlighten me please?

uhm, some of those there are in the hobby shop I work at. I know the Eclipse, the Supra and the Neon are on our shelves rigt now. im sure abot the Hyundais. I think we're getting some VW golfs soon, but I'm not really the first person that gets notified of the next model on our shelves. i found almost all the cars i showed here: www.modelexpress.net <They are the only place I know of that has a Chevy Beretta.

here's the rest of my collection....well, minus a couple more skill 1s and 2 more in progress builds [69 Baldwin Motion Camaro (gotta find a new way to mount rims-old way too fragile) and my Acura NSX (simply haven't built it yet)]

in one opf the pics the chrome Tach in the Monte Carlo shows up pretty well. I also have a monster tach in the Black Chevelle that's homemade but you really can't see it too well. which really sucks because it looks almost real with the light on the side and everything.

Thanks for replying to my question Satty101.

I would say they were pretty damn good. but i hate chevy. (almost as much as imports) You look like a good model builder (or whatever the word is) but you, in my opinion, chose a bad group of cars to build. Other than the fact that they're chevy's, they look pretty nice.

Why do you hate Chevies and imports?

posted by  snoopewite

nice, ive made a few models in my day, my best one is an rx7, i think its pretty cool. but yeah, nice models

I hate chevy's just bcuz i don't think they can compare to ford in the way of trucks or compare to dodge in the way of cars. (plus every stoner kid in my school thinks he's cool cuz he has a chevy) I hate imports bcuz all these stupid ass kids try to make them look cool and everyone just thinks they look retarted. I guess i don't hate all imports. just mosly japanese ones. or basically: honda toyota and hyundai (sorry if its spelled wrong). for instance. there is a kid in my school that took off his muffler off a little tiny hyundai to make it sound more "tuff" and he thinks its the coolest car in the parking lot. It can't do 0-60 in less than 15 seconds guaranteed.

hiundai only has one good car (the tibouron), unless im missed out on something

Hyundai makes ONE good car?

posted by  BavarianWheels

Yeah the Tiberon is the only good one they make. My brother has the 2003 GTV6, and that car is quick. As for the rest of the Hyandai's they suck :!:

I have a friend that has a 1999 Hyundai Accent GT Hatch. he hates it. I do too. so things work out quite nicely. ohh, and my Saturn can beat it in a race (we both have our temps and where bored one night when our parents left for the weekend to see a Bagder game or something). And my car is slow as hell. all 1.9L of ecotech power :rolleyes:

posted by  SuperJew

LMAO :D that would be pretty funny. :D

posted by  ChevySuxD0ng

I was being sarcastic...

posted by  BavarianWheels

haha, race of the Korean POS's. and CSD, it probably is as slow as your mom's focus. probably slower. but, it's a first car. what can I do? with no money that is. :rolleyes:

my car is pretty fast. it looks like shit on the outside but it does 0-60 in about 8 seconds with 180K miles on it.

[quote="ChevySuxD0ng"]my car is pretty fast.



What do you drive?

posted by  Satty101

Most Hyundai's (and possibly a few Yugo's too) can do the same...

posted by  BavarianWheels

I drive a '79 280ZX with a V8 (i'm not sure what kinda car the V8 came from. but its definetely not stock)
