The colors on that Monte are VERY close to two factory colors that year.

The Nissan/Camaro from Dr.Kerry.That thing is just so cool.

Um,I know it's worth more than $10.I started out a bit high because it's easier to bargain down that up.I've lowered the price twice even after having checked the market price on the kit (where I was right on the money).I've had it on the table for $75 which,I was told was at market level.I realize that the value shrank when AMT hit the market years ago with their '71 Charger but not down to the $10 level.

There are two kits in my stash that I've avoided building.One is a Gunze Sangyo 250 GTO.This multi media kit intimidates me whenever I open the box.The other kit is an MPC '71 Charger.It's got that fogged paint job on it that MPC did on a few kits.This body on this thing is a horrid tan color with black fogging and an orange(!) interior.(MPC also made the reverse combination.Anyone out there have that and would like to swap parts?)This kit was hit so hard with the ugly stick that it would have to be painted to hide that hideous color combination.But doing that would conceal the "unique" :wacko: original color combination.I've been trying to sell this thing at toy shows for going on 3 years now and still no takers.People look at it and just walk away.

I've visited the collection about four times.It's available for scheduled group tours.The cars on display change periodically with the rest of the collection which is stored in other out of the way warehouses that are definitely NOT open to the public.And,yes,some of the vehicles have been sold off.A big chunk went at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event a couple of years ago-stuff like some old concept vehicles and some production serial #1 vehicles like the first Saturn and some Oldsmobiles.
