HIGHWAY 61 / 43RD STREET COLLECTIBLES 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 1:43 | $75 each Highway 61 made the scene several years ago with a slew of muscle cars that carried the 1:18 hobby into new, high-detail territory. That shouldn’t have been a surprise: the company’s president is Fred Ertl III, heir apparent to the […]

PremiumX 1980 Cadillac

Cadillac advertised the bustle-backed 1980 Seville as “Quite possibly the most distinctive car in the world,” a description hard to dispute. But the bustle-back trunk and down-turned side spear also made it look as if the body had broken at the rear axle, and sales dropped by almost 30%. Regardless, PremiumX has done a fine […]

KYOSHO 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost extended wheelbase 1:43 | $99.95 The “Little Rolls,” the Ghost, was deemed to be a bit too cramped in the rear compartment, so the Ghost Extended Wheelbase model, with 6.7 inches more leg room for the pay- ing customers in back, was introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

In addition to its wide track and excellent visibility (or goldfish-bowl styling, take your pick) the Pacer’s passenger side door was longer than the driver’s by 4 inches for easier curbside access to the rear […]

PremiumX 1972 Buick Riviera

Buick introduced the third-generation Riviera in 1971, with a boat-tailed fastback body that you either loved or hated. It certainly was different from any other American car and bore much more than a passing resemblance to the 1963 Corvette, at least from the rear. It’s obvious that PremiumX has done their homework on this one; […]
