Until a few years ago, neither did I. In 97, I went to a model car club meeting. The stuff I saw there blew me away and turned my life around. There was a 69 Lincoln that I fell in love with. Some guy sold it for 50 bux. I was paying like 12 bux for stuff at Walmart. A couple months later, I found ebay. First kit I got was a 69 Lincoln. I now have over 300 kits, maybe 75% of them vintage originals, newer kits, or built ups, most lowriders with a few rods and kustoms in the mix.
