Steve,

 

I would agree. The "hotties" on the box art are a bit much for a kid.

Chris,

 

The non-coke branded car kits in regular size boxes were $10, the Coke stuff and cars/trucks in bigger boxes were $15 and the L-700 with trailer sets were $20.

 

I think someone has bought all of the kits as a single lot now so the party is over :(

 

There were a couple 2010 era MPC retro re-issue kits (which I though strange for Lindberg to have). Other than that I did not find anything else unique, just a few kits I felt I needed. I stopped short of going crazy as i am happily married and i would like it to stay that way.

 

I used to find interesting stuff at the ERTL outlet store in Dyersville, IA back the the AMT/MPC era but never a marketing sample.

 

You are fairly close to Revell/Monogram. Do they have any kind of an outlet store?

Wow. I just can't move to Chicago (my wife escaped from the Chicago area and does not want to go back).

 

Otherwise I meet every qualification (except the having done scale model design before).

 

I am a design engineer at a medeical instruments company. I design small, high tolerance molded plastic parts, manage multiple projects and conduct verification and validation testing.

 

Just can't move to Chicago :(


In Topic: 59 Edsel & 67 Chrysler 300 Edsel's Done!

My votes for the Chrysler would "Turbine Bronze" or code ZZ1 "Citron Gold" which is more of a light green.

 

I had a 68 300 Turbine Bronze with a black top and a white interior - super sharp

 

Currently have a 66 Newport in Citron Gold with a black top and a tri-tone green interior.
