Yes, it's Mauther's old station. I see Airdave has thrown down the gauntlet. Now, should I take it up? I feel a kitbash coming up, and I still haven't exhausted my ideas on Zio's stuff.

Darwin, I know you are a very good builder. After watching you struggle thru this build and the results. If someone as good as you ends up with what you have I know darn good and well there is no room in here for me. Thanks for showing this build in its best possible light.

Whulsey, at least he didn't have to ask "where is the gas tank fill spout?" Which brought to mind another story from my misspent youth. One of my roommates and I jointly owned a 1954 Jag XK-120. That particular beast had a common oil sump for the engine and tranny, which had about a 12-quart capacity...desperately needed, as at the best of times, it got about 100 miles a quart. The low mark on the dipstick was for a full gallon of oil. One weekend we took a roadtrip to Los Angeles to visit with his folks, about 500 miles roundtrip. On gassing up when we got back to school, the pump jockey (dates me...there was no such thing as self-service then, other than five-finger-discount) told us we were a bit more than a quart low, so my roomie said to go ahead and add oil. Upon opening the fifth quart of oil, the attentant was down on hands and knees looking for a pool of oil and for where the tv-camera was hidden.

nice Alfa!

My first observation has to be what a nice build job! Who doesn't love the Alfa of (almost) any vintage?

@Darwin,
So you had an xk-120? My dad had a '49 of same model...I'm guessing he got rid of it for the same reasons you mentioned. His next car was a Triumph TR-3, I think. . .it did not last long either.

What's the deal with English cars?

How about a weathered version of one of Cami's Chevys or the new Xmas truck?

Nope. Gotta be a 49 Nash bathtub sedan...the one with the big old straight 8. That's the only thing that would make the diorama authentic for the 50s era. Although a Henry J would be an acceptable substitute.
