Tony Karamitsos (who does the development of HO slot cars for Round2) did the product development work on the HHR, as an exclusive for GM, who ordered 30,000 to be used as promotional pieces starting with the introduction of the HHR. I got into that project a little bit, was neat seeing how something could be developed from CAD files. The Johnny Lighting HHR promo was done in dark metallic blue, and was released by GM at the Los Angeles Auto Show in early 2004, JL's own version went on sale in stores in late February 2004. Several releases of the JL HHR were produced throughout 2004, both from Playing Mantis, and later from RC2.

I had HUGE interest in this resin kit awhile back, but maybe now since 2011 was the final production year for the 1:1, folks have forgotten the HHR for the most part

I had one for a rental over New Year's weekend. I liked it a lot. Consistent 30 miles a gallon, decent on the highway, fairly comfortable. Definitely a car I would happily buy.

A certain Canadian fellow? Yes, I'm awaiting a response to that as well.
I saw someone posting a bunch of kits they bought at Detroit this weekend. Amongst the pile of kits was a HHR rersin body. No response as to who made it yet.

Too bad they never made a Chevy Cobalt/Pontiac G5 kit either. Since they are all the same platform, the kit would make the perfect base to start on. I'm surprised no one has released this even in panel form by now.
Amen and hallelujah, brother! I have a Victory Red 2006 Cobalt SS coupe, my first and only brand-new car, and would love to be able to build a model of it.

Ron Andrews of RMR had at least a dozen 25th scale resin castings at the DetroitMCCC toy show. they looked REAL nice. Contact him, he'll do ya right!
Can You provide a way for me to contact Ron? I appreciate the information.
