If I had $5 for every Revell I put together and blew apart with M-80's growing up... I could afford to replace that thumb I blew off.

just kidding. a little amputee humor. I did spend a lot of time sniffing model glue, painting models and blowing them to smithereens though.
good times. I feel sad for kids these days.

Left many a blob of molten plastic in my wake as a young man as well...

From a member on the HAMB:

"Charlie Ryan, who recorded the rockabilly song "Hot Rod Lincoln" in 1955 was born on Dec. 19 in 1915. The song, a snapshot of the Western hot rod scene, was released later in 1957. I took this photo in 1973 in front of the Fox Theater in Missoula. Charlie had been hired for the opening of the film "American Graffiti" there. Apologetically, he told me his wheels had been stolen the night before and he had to borrow the set seen here to make the appearance. The red rod pictured is far more ratty and real than the version later sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for a reported $97,000 and seems to be the original Model A body on a Lincoln chassis ("looks like a pup"). The Lincoln bumperettes appear not joined at this time. Mr. Ryan departed for that great hot rod race in the sky in 2008, but left us with a inspiring historical poem."

Cool pic & info. I've always enjoyed the old Johnny Bond version. Not so much Commander Cody's, which seems to be the only one you hear anymore.

The Astro was created by Bill Cushenberry of Cushenberry Custom Shop. It was based on a 1963 Ford Galaxie Convertible. He used Ford's traditional round taillight theme as motif for the front end of the car.
