you need high speed internet to enjoy this I suppose and make sure you use the full screen mode.

I had to watch this three times before I could do anything else.

Way cool, amazing work. See the seaplane hanging in the toy store? It must be 1/2A, so this is definitely on topic.

That was very cool! In one of the pictures was a Mercury Turnpike Cruiser, I had one of those in the early 70's. What a great car.....

That was absolutely marvelous! Thank you for posting that pointer. Its on my favorites now.

The models are great, the photography is amazing, but those "old" cars made my nose run (sniffles, get it?)

Those were the rides that I lusted after in my youth. That Studebaker and El Camino, oh my!

But I had to be satisfied with my $250 '53 Chevy - powered by a Blue Flame Six I'll have you know. I got it up to 55 once - scared the heck outa me. I ran on $4 or $5 used tires back then and experienced too many blowouts. Brrr.

Truly amazing. The work of an extremely talented man if ever there was one.

Yeah, it's off topic and I'll have to move it but I'll give it a couple of more days to make sure that you lot all get a chance to see this and gain some inspiration.

Thanks for the link, Robert. That was quite a walk down memory lane - the bee's knees.

I didn't pay any attention to the title, so I just settled back to look at some pretty nice cars - what a surprise!!
