Daily history for 7/12/12 - Revell Trike
Posted 12 July 2012 - 10:43 AM
We went to Virginia Beach for our honeymoon. I rented a brand new Caddy from Avis for the ride. They insisted they did not rent Caddys to individuals, just corporations. After much prodding and the honeymoon story they agreed. They brought out a dark grey one and I asked them if I could have a black one. They looked at me like I was insane but they went back and got me a black one. It was brand new and had like 600 miles on it. When I pulled up to the hotel, being from NY they must have thought I was from the Gambino family with that big black four door Caddy. When we returned home I used it to move into our apartment and I have a pic of the car with a mattress tied to the roof to prove it.
Anyway, back to the kit. When we got to Virginia Beach the second thing I did was pick up the Yellow Pages (remember those?) and looked for hobby shops. When we were dating we spent many hours together looking for old models and junk. I found this in a hobby shop in Norfolk. It is called Hobby Craft and I looked it up and it is still there.
It's quite ugly and it is from 1968. I can see why it was still on the shelf in 1983.
I have held on to the kit for 30 years; the woman for 35.
