As you guys likely know by now, I do love my MPC car kits. Thereís something about grabbing onto an MPC, whether original or reissue, that just gets my engine turning. One thing thatís for sure, they really had distinctive box art. It was so much better, even at its blandest, than some of the Revell and Monogram stuff of the same era.

Just for something fun to do, I took a few more pics of some of my newer MPC kits and put the box art up on my website. If you want a retro blast, check it out. Do you remember building any of these, back in the day?

Nice!

That's why I love these kits. Some, because they're outrageous, and others, because they're the everyday.

There's never enough everyday cars. How many of us drive Ferraris? Right. Now, how many drive Focuses (Foci?) or Camrys or Cruzes? Yeah... that's what I want to build! Of course, I'm a bit of an odd one...
