    First photo, top of Monogram box, "$15,000 show car". Wow!
    Wonder what it would cost to build it now?
    But on the other hand back then gas was 20 cents a gallon and I thought making $90/week was a big income!!
     
  2. I still like this version.....I cant wait till some body remakes the kit!!

  5. SEE YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now you might want to consider some of us have a sense of humor and do care about our fellow rodders!! just take a look at what we do when it REALLY counts,and if Mr. Scott was a part of this and need anything from a postive vibe to prayers in the wake of tragidy... hell we're there!! yes we care about the car its history we grew up with but dont think we dont care about the people behind it..........
     
  6. Did anybody even think for a half a second that hotrodhawk IS/WAS Steve? The post on the other site said he was in the internet biz.
     
  7. doe'st look like it matters somebody yanked his post which makes my last one not make much sense....But I doubt it was,I am sure if it was we would show him the respect he deserved.
     
  8. How long you been 'round here? :rolleyes: :D
     
  9. good point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wake up boys. Most of the information is wrong. Steve Scott is alive and well. I know, I spoke to him by phone. The UNCERTAIN-T is also just fine. The car was SOLD to a friend and he still has the "T". Just maybe, the "T" will re-appear in 2008. Thats the talk!

    I'm interested in the car, but not in any of the Mystery that seems to go with it.

    If the guy doesn't want to be found, thats his perogative...


    On the car itself, I like how he used a Rack and Pinion lengthwise in the Chassis.
    And, I always thought the rear was solid mounted.
    But I see leafsprings there...
    Are those just to mount it, or was there enough driveshaft length to let it move?
    ( I thought the Rear was right up against the tranny...)
    Or did the whole Engine/Gearbox assemby pivot somewhere?
     
  14. Well it's been five years. Any news?

    Lots of not so near misses on that film.
     
  20. Yellow,red and blue ones are all clones. Wouldn't be bad if the original was never built,but they all fall short.
