Thanks for the background info on the Pontiac Jim.
 
It was a wise dicision and I agree with GM: Pontiac looks and sounds better than Obwandiyag.


 


Imagine having a Obwandiyag Firebird or a Obwandiyag Trans-Am

LOL your funny. LOve the idea though. Might have kept GM our of the crisis of a few years ago. Then maybe not and they would have failed after WWII like so many other makers did.

I like the wrecker and the grey tires set if off nicely.

Terrific imagination created again and yes I like the Major Pack Guy Warrior conversion by adding a chop down crane jib from the 8 wheel crane 1-75 series.

Thank you all for your comments... there are so many excellent customs, code 3 and restorations by all the members who show their work on here...

I must admit I am using the site as a kind of chronical to list my work rather than have it hidden away on my hard drive where things get "lost, missed and forgotten"... (sounds like a good title for a song...)

GunnerJim... the jib on the Wrecker is from the MB Ford Heavy Wrecker MB71....

here's one I never finished... Matchbox Jaguar... added front lip/skirt and rear spoiler



 

and one from the past.... May 2009

I would certainly buy an ice cream, no matter how cold the weather outside would be.

Talking about selling refrigerators to Eskimo's. Excellent idea and I love it. reminds me of another vehicle from up north. Lets see if I can find it. I will post it next if I do.

All that is needed is a trailer with Ice Cream in it.
