Well, heres my first attempt at posting photos. I've been busy so, I haven't hardly touched my HO train layout in several years. I went up to the attic to take a couple photos and realized the summer heat and winter cold has not been kind to the layout. It needs alot of work. Track and Walthers street system roadways have buckeled in places. layers of dust will be difficult to remove from scenery, and an alarming percentage of the population of the largest town on the layout have dropped dead in the street and left to rot.
If the photos worked, there should be two different views of the same intersection at the edge of the layout. The Busch black Mustang convertible has been given red line tires by using a red Sharpie marker on the white walls. A red self adhesive tape stripe was added to the lower body side to give it the look of a Mustang GT. The Wiking Chevy Malibu has the interior, windshield, and convertible boot from a Busch Mustang, The Tyco Camaro also has the Busch Mustang windshield interior and convertible boot, as well as the Busch Mustang's entire chassis. The Williams Brothers 64 GTO has Busch wheels (again with the red line tires made by a Sharpie marker over whitewalls). The 40 Ford coupe has the chassis, fenders hood, grille and bumpers from a Jordan kit, and the coupe body from a Tyco/IHC Used car lot HO scale building kit. The body of the crude coupe from the structure kit is pretty soft plastic and was easilly trimed to fit the Jordan parts with an exacto knife (an easy conversion I did years ago).
