  • Way back when...

    Many of my friends and fellow collectors from several of the diecast discussion sites, such as this one that used to be on the net, all thought GL had swiped several of my ideas such as the shop tools, diorama buildings, car trailers and hopping up the Fox Mustangs from the pics I used to post on the Diecast Fun web site I used to have. I received so many messages from so many collectors about that very thing. I really didn't care and was glad to see that stuff available to all other collectors. Besides unless you attach copy rights to everything you post, it's pretty much free game to anyone...
    I did this JL custom Fox way back in the early 2000s before GL even released any Fox castings. I made the cowl on the hood from a tiny thin piece of aluminum that worked well.. Used wheels and tires from a Racing Champions drag car and I forget what the parachute and wheelie bars came from. But I sure am still proud of it. I learned customs on the 1 dollar cars. That way if I messed it up, I was only out a buck. This was the first Johnny I got the nerve up to try a custom on... LOL

      Wow- what a transformation!! This is the first time I've seen a JL Fox body Mustang have a good-looking stance. The initial '79 Pace Car casting always sat too low- while the '87 casting here had way too big of a rear wheel opening. Having the slicks stuffing the rear makes this one look awesome - great job Steve.
