    with all the old promos johan did why was this the one they chose to make kits from? Boy think about all the other molds that could be done into a kit? just seeing the usual's come back like the cutlass and the eldorado would be nicer than redoing the rambler.  Thanks for the info guys, I like being able to fill in the blanks of history on some of these oldies.

    1959 Rambler Wagon
    Saw this online at mega hobby listed. I thought the old ones and the recent reissue had no interior in addition I read people complained that the glass was bad, opaque or not clear. Also does this have metal axles or plastic axles for the wheels?
     
    Is this really available now?

    What a great concept looks like that Safari wagon was made from grafting the chevelle wagon onto the pontiac body. Often times forget the GM intermediates shared many similarities

    AMT 1965 GTO
    I recently gotten an older release of an AMT 65 GTO. The 1986 brown plastic version. Been adding details to it etc. One thing that really is bad on the car is the front headlights are all wrong. They protrude from the headlight housing. So I started to scratch build the headlight buckets, but wanted to pick up another bumper assembly as a back up. When I was online I noticed that in the later editions it seems that the box art car had newer improved headlights that looked better and more correct. Did AMT revise the part or did they just photo shop the picture. Here is what I mean. pics below: Should I just go ahead and get the newer version of the kit? Also looking at the original castings from the first releases and the promos from 1965 the headlight housings also seem to be correct. Although I would never go the expense of getting one of those originals. Thoughts please. I know there are you guys that know the real story. Thank you all for your help!



    Newer one

    Older version headlights (they come above the housings):

    you have brought up a very untapped source of revenue for who ever would kit this subject. it is about as popular if not more so than people who are into fox body mustangs. Think about all the people who would buy multiples of this to do various subjects.

    1977 Firebird Trans Am Rockford Files Special
    Built from those wonderful build your own Promos that were out for a short time in the 70's. I always thought James Garner should have picked the Trans Am or even a Formula instead of the Esprit trim. So here is a what if car.

    Comments welcome!

    love the truck and color, i bet with so many of us experienced modelers buying and building this kit someone might come out with a real decal sheet for it.
