Yesterday,
I recieved these from UPS. Smile
The new Greenlight 1/18th scale 1980 Turbo Trans Ams.

This one is the 1980 Special Edition Turbo Trans Am that was the Smokey And The Bandit II movie.
You can see the "Bandit" script on the driver's door.


Top view.


This one is the 1980 Indy Pace Car Turbo Trans Am, with all the door decals and such.


Top view.


I haven't opened them up yet, and I was able to get a dupe of each, to open, but there is no room inside my glass display cases for these.  :'(
I need more room! Smile

Enjoy,

Sure wouldn't mind having that Pace Car...buttheres no room in my cabinet either....if someone makes a 1:18 70-73 Formula, I might find room, though.

You know Leigh,
I just wish diecast makers would make them like real cars.
Once you do one, just update the nose and tail, and any other small differences.
Not redo a whole car.
You think it would be cheaper this way. Wink
I would love an early Formula in 1/18th scale.

I wondered how long it would take them to do a 2nd gen Firebird. The have had a 2nd gen Camaro for a couple of years now. Nice find!  Cool

Picked up another new one,
Even if it's only a repaint, it's still new.



Kinda cool, all white.
I figure Hot Wheels would do blue and white.

Here are a few that I picked up lately.




Since these are by Greenlight, the chase version is know as Green Machines, which always has something green.
Wheels, base, or the complete car.
Lately, the car has green in it, although a green wheeled version is out there too.

I have as ton more to show as well.

I picked this up over the weekend.
At AutoZone.


I know it's not a Firebird, but you can open it, and place Firebirds onto the AutoZone car lift. Wink


Enjoy!

This one I got a short while ago.
It was kinda hard to get, with both cars being the Green Machine version (chase versions).
