Re: Ribside Car Kits

Ribside Car has been out of business about a year. His closing was a surprise, as he did not give his dealers a chance to stock up before closing. He now has no email or phone.  I sold my last kits in January.

I have no knowledge of him being ill.  The website is up and he still runs ads in the magazines -- usually small ads in the back.

The 50' car is listed on the website as new

Did the "Ribside Car" Kits Lineup include the MILW's 50-ft single door version? I know the owner of this line is ill and kits are hard to obtain. If this kit does exist, does anyone have one they can spare? Is there a dealer that stocked this line?

Thank you!
