Johnny Lightning 1/25th cars question

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a Thunderbolt. It has a metal chassis as does the '69 Charger i also have. 

I was wondering what other cars might be in that series. 

I really find the metal chassis lending themselves to the heft and weight of the cars interesting.

I have a JL '69 Camaro with a metal chassis. Pretty sure I have a JL '67 Shelby, maybe two of them, with metal chassis.

I have those same 2.

Recently I found 1 of the Thunderbolts in Butch Leal's livery!!

The 1st one I bought was plain white, and I'd decalled it with one of Fred Cady's Butch Leal sheets.

I have a few, like the '70 Trans Am and this '71 Duster 340 I converted to a Hemi Duster.

Thanks Roy, I really enjoyed this project.:) Steve, look up Johnny Lightning on Ebay in the Toy and Hobbies section under diecast. You'll find all kinds of cool JL cars. They do a nice rendition of a Superbird, their '65 & '68 GTO and '65 Mustang & '69 Mach I are pretty nice also. Check 'em out.;)B) Here's a teaser shot of a Superbird on there now.

Have to look for some of those--I haven't seen them. I have the '65 Mustang and it's not too bad at all, but I prefer the M2 version. Same with their '69 Camaro--not bad but M2's is better. Their '67 Shelby is pretty good, and I don't think anyone else does one. I saw their Nova and did NOT like it. Great Superbird! B)

That Superbird does look very cool!! The 65 Mustangs I've seen are nice as well.

Snake. there are other '67 Shelbys out there including a Revell version. And also the version (???) that I found on EBay....which I will try to post up about over the weekend!

Hey Gregg, what color is your '69 Charger?
