    I just gleaned this picture from a member over at FBBO. He found it somewhere on the net. Pretty cool stuff. Thought I'd share. model car.jpg
    Hard to believe it's a model car.

      That's really good aging/model weathering! Don't often see it on cars unless it's part of a highly detailed model railroad layout.

        Wow, a lot of work. The real ones are pushing 50 years old now, i have seen some on ebay for $5k looking like that model, with the only perfect thing being the title lol.

          The only inaccurate thing I can see in that model is the for-sale sign. Most of those cars weren't for sale because the owner was "going to fix it up someday!" (As a tree is growing up through the middle of it.

            I disagree. I have seen plenty of em all effed up w faded for sale signs on em out this way because the sellers sitting in their dilapidated single wide trailers have "buyit jackman" auction fever and illusions of grandeur of that brandy new triple wide they can buy with all them millions off grandnas old slant sux dart, if they could just find a sucker to buy it. Meanwhile it sinks lower and lower into the dirt.
