          I am very pleased to say that Brian Orr ~ JrCentral has the jrcentral website http://jrcentral.com up again and fully working. I went through a lot of links this morning and everything seems to be operational. You can spend a lot of time going through each link. It is not just Tbirds that Powercar and other "Junior" manufacturers made: There are also the Desota Firemite; Powercar 1958-1960 Plymouth Fury; Donalson Edsel; Sylvestri Art Studios Pontiac; Conval Mustangs; Creative Industries '65 Plymouth; Yardman Corvette; Powercar 1965-1967 Mustangs; Powercar 1957-1958 Mercury; Barry Toycraft Corvettes; Donalson Ford Sunliner 500; Robel Divco Milk Trucks; Master Enterprises 1959-1960 Studebaker Larkette; 1960 Gas powered Buick. It is not known who made that one.

          After Powercars demise, Conval Industries took over and continued production for a short period of time, and also made the 1971 Mustang. To tell if you have a Powercar Junior or a Conval Junior check the chassis frame. Conval used a square tube frame and Powercar used a round tube frame. If you really want to learn a lot more about the production of "Junior" cars, spend some time reading the various links regarding each kind of "Junior" car that was being made by Powercar/Conval and the other "Junior" manufacturers...

            A friend, who is not a member of this Forum, sent me a couple of pix of his Big 1966 Flairbird, with his newly repainted to match, "Junior"! Here are those 2 pix!

                A 55' and a 56' Thunderbird Jr. we're just posted for sale by someone in Oklahoma. They appear to me to be 1/4 scale electric ones. Overall they appear in nice condition. The link for the ad is below.
