    Terry Ross competed over seas with his models. the Willys and the 53 panel van all took prizes at US shows if I remember.

    Built a bright orange Galaxie after reading the Small Talk build-up - took a prize at SM Lazy Sunday Model Show at Hickstead. First comp, first prize - good incentive to keep on building

    Last Friday i decided to have a look through some old Street Machine mags mainly to look at the old "small talk" pages but ended up spending all evening going through a pile of mags...by the way i think it was September 83 the "small Talk" pages started.It mentioned in one of the mags that Terry got the idea on the Galaxie from a real one but i cant remember whos it was

    September '83, jeez that's 26 years ago - that's scary. Still got the model in a box somewhere!

    Started buying Street Machine when the Small Talk features first appeared. It's what got me into model customizing. I'll have to search out the old mags.

    Think most of the good pics are on film - might try and have a scanning session and see how they come out.

    Still got about 500 kits to make so might have to thin the collection out a bit, wonder if anybody here might be interested in swapping some for some of Her Majesty's pound notes
