    ok now that i got your attention i don't even have one real 1.1 car altho i did have 2 1936 ford coupes a 1952 henry-j and my last car was a 1948 studebaker champion. i have absolutely no talent to do any major work on real cars my friends who do work on cars would always help me out if i needed help. i needed cash so i sold my stude and got into building junkyard models. so i realy do have around 100 cars and trucks. i just hope i am in the right place to show my work i take the junkyard to some 1.1 car shows and always draw a crowd with it. but i think the women and kids like it the most.i also take it to model car shows when i can. these pictures i am showing now are from the nnl east model car show in wayne nj this past april.i built the land the buildings and the models. most of the models are diecast franklin and danbury mint with some other brands and a few promo and kit cars thrown in. i do most any scale from 1:43 - 1/10 i will show the yard then if there is any interest i will show individual models as i
    can post them. and thank you for this forum.
