    I have one of these trucks and a little concerned after looking at this picture since it looks like they do not hold up well in a fender bender,mine is going to crumble a little easier due to fiberglass fenders and running boards.

    This is the paint I was using when I first started to build models and then stores stop carrying Pactra and started selling Testors which is the paint they still sell.

    cycle rate was so slow you could fire single rounds or bursts just by how you pulled the trigger. My dad at 4'11" was a BAR man for a short while.

    Another new shot of a 1958 Desoto Firemite. Looks like the kids are already tearing it up since it is missing the hood ornament on the front of the hood.This is the early version made in late 1957 with the vacuum formed Polystyrene body that fell apart with the vibration of the motor and sidewalks. It took me 20 years to find mine. Wonder what the back story is on this one?
