My Riding pics
Various pics of me riding eons ago, Old School? How about Pre-Old School! Most of this stuff is going to be from the early 80's on through '95 when my body finally had enough of a beating. I still break the bike out from time to time, but no more 14 hour riding days for me!

Run To The Sun XXX
The 30th annual Run To The Sun, and my first rain-out. Not a bad rain, but once the drops started, so did most of the cars. So I don't have many pictures, but at least I got an SC/Rambler and '71 Javelin AMX before everyone bailed on us!

My tire & rim stash, and any other various stuff I want to add
All of the extra rims, tires and wheel backs I've accumulated over the years. I needed to post some pics of some tires for a buddy on Scale Avenue, so I made an Album just for Tim! Now it takes all kinds of pics I don't want to make a folder for.

WIP - 1938 Custom Ford Van
This one's the Lindberg kit, I picked some up at Ollie's while they were good and cheap. It's got a gorgeous chassis and suspension, along with great rims and a sharp looking engine and interior. No idea of a color yet, but I am considering some kind of Candy Yellow....we'll see!

1957 Chevy "Spirt of '57"
This is the Model King re-issue of the old MPC kit, and it's still a real pain to get it looking good. I had a severely warped chassis in mine, so I had to scratch-build a new chassis from the firewall back. Lots of fit issues, but those killer decals are still there! I painted mine House Of Kolors Oriental Blue over Dupli-Color Candy Silver, added foil and Molotow Liquid Chrome markers, and a Fatkidd Hobby Products pre-wired distributor, along with a resin coil and MSD style ignition box to the firewall. The firewall has a engine-turned decal from PRP Scale Decals. Contact Juan F. Sierra on Facebook if you want some of 'em for yourself!

WIP - The El Monte
This is my first build back after a 10 month layoff due to a shoulder injury i incurred on July 13th 2015.I'm still not 100%, but I've got the IPMS Nationals in August to attend, and I need a new build, so I'll suffer through a bit of pain.

It started with someone posting a picture on Facebook of a 1:1 Monte Carlo/El Camino custom, and I knew I had to make a model of it. It may not be my idea, but I'll at least be the first to make a model of it! A slight modification is needed though, the only '73-77 El Camino kit available is in resin, and I'm not gonna pay $60 to hack it up, so an '84 El Camino will have to do.

1965 Chevy Pickup & Hemi Hydro - Toney's Tribute Truck
This one is a replica of a model that a good friend of mine built as a Forum Project on Scale Avenue prior to his unfortunate passing after a battle with cancer on July 14th, 2014. Toney was a great guy, and a very talented builder who made everyone he came in contact with feel like a lifelong friend, and he is dearly missed. I hope you like it Toney, it's the least I could do to honor ya brother!

WIP - 1957 Chevy - Spirit of '57
Model King's re-issue of the old MPC Spirit of '57 kit. I built this one many, many times as a kid, and never got it right. This time, it will come out looking good!
