You must be spending full time on these cars Lee, every few days you have a new impressive project! You have quite a stable of them now.
I was amused at your comments about the Corvair Greenbrier, we actually had one of those. In a word, it was a pig! When I came home on leave from Navy training schools after boot camp, this was what was available to drive. I was not impressed after owning cars in my teens that would run rings around it. We also had a 1960 Corvair, another slug with the 2-speed slush-o-matic, that was traded for the Greenbrier. I think the Corvair coupe may have been slower than the Greenbrier with the manual shift, if that's possible.
Love the Greenbrier. It might not have been much fun to drive, but like a VW microbus, I’ll bet it was funny to drive. I’ve looked for one for my layout, but have yet to find one I was willing to pay for.
If the Caddy nicked the curb, big rigs are probably going to be a problem in the city. May need to limit them to the country highway when that gets done. I may have missed it, but have you approached Automotion about doing a big rig for you?
". . . have you approached Automotion about doing a big rig for you?"
Big rigs are on their radar screen but pretty far off on the horizion. I've' talked with them about it extensively about the design and so issues and we've shared ideas. I'm still a week of so away from trying to make mine, letting some lessons recently learned mature, and some ideas percolate a bit.
