That's weird, because I can see it on several different computers, and I can't find anything wrong with the link.

It's a kit by ToHo of a 1960s Nissan President in 1/24 scale.

The LeSabre was also done as a kit by ITC that was about Hot Wheels size--approx 1/64. It's very simple but it's been reissued by Glencoe and is still available. It comes packed with a 50s Indy racer.

I saw the Glencoe kit on Ebay just the other day - it might still be available. The box said the LeSabre was 1/72 and the Indy car was 1/60 scale. The Glencoe re-issue must be a pretty obscure kit all on its own!

ok i don't care if the swasticka is polliticaly correct or not, but if they are going to do model with them, you would think they would at least base it off the original beetle and not this early 70,s abomination ! forget politically incorrect more like period incorrect !

Here's some more stuff I actually own.

Every kids bad birthday nightmare! Actually I bid on this as a lot on eBay and it seems nobody else did!

Posted Image

Premier Ford Anglia.

Posted Image

Lindberg Trail blazer is actually around 1/25 scale. There actually was a 1:1.

Posted Image

I believe this is a Premier Caddy. It looks like something Stuart Little drove! I could use parts for this if anyone has a parts car!

Posted Image

Premier Corvair. Slightly off a bit! I don't know how anyone worked for Premier and had the nerve to get up and go there every day!

That '61 Falcon is definitely a suprise. Is that a four door too?

That was my first reaction, too. I've got a 61 Falcon 2 door. The rear driver side window is shorter, and doesn't have the vertical bar. That box certainly looks like a 4 door.

Having spent the better part of a half a years time working in a Nuke, I'd love to get my hands on one of the Westinghouse kits.....

And I really want one of the MG A kits in 1/24th.
