A vintage car is commonly defined as a car built between the
start of 1919 and the end of 1930. There is little debate about the start date of the Vintage period the end of World War
I is a nicely defined marker there but the end date is a matter of a little more debate. The British definition is strict
about 1930 being the cut-off, while some American sources prefer 1925 since it is the pre-classic car period as defined by
the Classic Car Club of America. Others see the Classic period as overlapping the Vintage period, especially since the Vintage
designation covers all vehicles produced in the period while the official Classic definition does not, only including high-end
vehicles of the period. Some consider the start of World War II to be the end date of the Vintage period.
and Detailing Scale Model Cars
Very few hobbies offer more ways to gratify their devotees than
car modeling. Many do it for the simple fact that they enjoy working with their hands. Some prefer to build a model replica
of a car they own or have owned in the past. Others desire building certain types of cars because they dream of owning one,
driving one, or being able to admire the car at any given time. Modelers can take time out to dream any time by simply walking
over to the display shelf and letting a model car transport them to automotive Valhalla.The act of building a model car requires
strategic planning, mental preparation, hand-to-eye coordination, and the determination to achieve an end goal. Building and
Detailing Scale Model Cars reveals the fundamentals of building, painting, and detailing model cars. Author Pat Covert has
left no stone unturned. He uses over 300 detailed color photographs to illustrate techniques, tools, adhesives, paint, polish,
masking and decals, weathering, fine detailing, and more.

In the 1960s three incendiary ingredientsdeveloping V-8 engine
technology, a culture consumed by the need for speed, and 75 million baby boomers entering the auto marketexploded in the
form of the factory muscle car. The resulting vehicles, brutal machines unlike any the world had seen before or will ever

hedonistic pleasures, and the cars they drove provided hedonistic pleasure in wretched excess. "Muscle: Americas Legendary
