1) Price- higher than most were willing to pay compared to a typical $10 kit of the day.
2) Subject- as Mark said, they're just not that popular. I think Ken touched on that fact that the 1:1 cars weren't all that popular either.
3) Availability- these were never mass-merchandised at chain stores, so that makes them less available to the general public.
I have no problem with you having a slight emotional attachement to theses kits, but if you want honest answers, you should be willing to put aside you personal feelings and listen.
1) Price? Where can you find a $10 dollar kit today? Really want to know that one..... But all are sold!
2) Subject? Fine, there not popluar. But why are they all sold?
3) Availability?..... they are ALL SOOLLLLDDDD OUUTTT! (holy cow....)
I have no problem listening if your answers were remotely relative to the subject matter. I am not talking about availability, the fact they were ever, or are now, or have ever been in YOUR personal hobby shop!
The cars are gone.
The kits are sold.
The product is in the public's hands.
Has nothing to do with Galaxie Ltd any longer or the fact that there is an orange color on the box.
The fact as I see it is that modelers today are lazy pure and simple.
