Car Modeling and the 1970's
Join us for a somewhat irreverent look at the cars we love and the cars we love to hate from the 1970's and the model kits they inspired

It seems that most modelers of a certain age in the U.S.A. wax fondly about building models in the 1960’s. For me, being born early in the decade, the 60’s were spent watching my brother build my models for me. It wasn’t until the 1970’s when I was old enough to tell him off before I could build any models by myself. Dick is eight years older than me. By coincidence, he was back then, as well. When your big brother is more than double your age in the 1960’s, you have to be very careful telling him off.
