    You, sir, are a mindreader!

    That is exactly why I wanted the info... I looked on Google Earth and found what I think is the right location, is there a Wye there? I saw 5 cars, I thought they looked more like 50 foot cars. Remembering that Google earth images are not always recent, I looked on TerraServer and found an image from 10/06 and there appears to be 6 open cars parked there. Would these cars have been there in 2006? Link:

    TerraServer - The Leader In Online Imagery - Aerial Photos & Satellite Images


    Globe Explorer has the same or similar image from 10/06.

    Just wondering if I should cover them or not, I was thinking not...

    Dave that is definitely the right spot. Like you say Google Earth pictures are outdated, so I would believe TerraServer. I can not remember how long I have been driving by and looking at those cars, but I would say at least a year.

    Thanks Loren. I decided I am going to model them open, regardless of prototype. That would give me the opportunity to model interior bracing or put loads in the cars. More interesting methinks.

    Thanks for all the help, I will be posting progress in the kitbashing thread soon.
