The "Used Cars" ghost box is back on E-bay for $450 with seller pretending it is real.




For a good laugh read his description.

Looks like the box designer used way too many screen shots from the movie, and not enough PS'd images of the actual kit.


This one is slightly better IMHO:




About 5 years ago I was lucky enough to get a tour of Steven Juliano's Mopar collection and he had the Diamante kit box in a showcase (at the time he owned the 1:1 Diamante, it was about 30' from the kit box). I told him that I remembered the kit box from an SAE article in the early 80's as a phantom box. Steven was really happy to hear the explanation as it explained the early 80's camaro in the box.


A couple years ago I saw the "Used Cars" phantom kit with a wrecked 67 Galaxie as the box art car on E-bay. It was being sold as a "super rare prototype kit". I sent an explanation of the phantom box to the seller, it was a waste of time :(

Grew up in Iowa City, IA and I now live in Riverside, IA. Been building for 30+ years. Have not been that active for the last few years (two teen kids) but next month we are moving to a new house with a room that WILL BE my model room.
