If we were to make a drinking game out of seeing a Coke tie-in, most likely the majority of folks wouldn't survive the experience.

Like, I get it - you purchase a stupidly expensive license, you wanna see a return of dosh to make it worthwhile but my God man. That being said, '70 Camaro Z28 with a full bumper, eh? I know there's no chance in hell they'd also turn it into the single headlight version again, but one can hope.

Also in today's "What in the holy hell" edition:

All 70 Camaros had single (2) headlights.     The RS nose had the split bumpers and the round parking lights (as on the AMT Z/28 and BM), while the base single piece bumper front end had parking lights under the bumper. 

So based on the description ,AMT-1155 should be something that looks like this (without the vinyl top):

Neat to see the '70 Impala Fire Chief car listed...I have several AMT '70 Impalas, never had that version...I guess the only differences from the regular issues would be the dog dish hubcaps and steel wheels and siren, lights, etc?   Hopefully no Coke decals. ;)    I wonder what the 'Popper' '77 Pinto is...the same that was recently reissued but w/ a Coke machine?

Since Round 2 is doing updates and new decal sheets and some really nice tires for these reissues, maybe the money spent on rights to Coke could be used to offer something a little more tangible for the model builders in the future.

I assume you move the Coke Vending machine with the Pinto by tying it to the roof...

Since it's supposed to be a fire department car (red paint job), just add some Coke decals and you're set. :D

I never saw a 2DR car used by any city agency at any time during my lifespan. The last time 2 DR coupes/sedans were used by NYC was 1958. Building this '70 Impala Fire Chief as an FDNY bugle limo ain't gonna work.

Me too. The RS front end always looked to me like a Jaguar sedan. Pontiac did a MUCH better job with the whole front end of this car.

I like both front ends. But in general, I like the RS front end at times a little better. But, I'll sure be glad to see, and buy, a Camaro without the RS front end. With the one piece, full width bumper. 

As for stuff being released in The July 2019 video, there was nothing of interest to me, other than the Auto World '74 Buick Estate Wagon. Yet they already announced a showed us that last month. So there is nothing there for me. Still I enjoy watching Chad's videos each month.

Along with adding Coke decals to the 70 Impala Fire Chief car, they could also reissue the pumper, ladder chief, aero chief, and the Chevy rescue van with Coke decals and one could have an entire Coca Cola plant internal fire department! :lol:

Does anybody know which '76 Chevy Vega Funny Car will be released? Is it the long wheelbase coupe body, or the short (stock-ish) wheelbase Van body kit they used to do???

If it's the van body kit (!!!), I'm in for one, Coca-Cola graphics or no...

Not sure yet, but I would guess the version which shares the generic chassis with the semi-recently reissued Trojan Horse Mustang II F/C, discussed here:
