    Diecast V

    I know these things show up rarely, and when they do, I see a member here buy 'em almost instantly. If this was a smaller scale, I would have bought it.

    Anyway, there's two CTS-V NOREV diecasts on ebay

    Here's one:

    I'm personally not selling it, just know the members tend to snatch 'em up whenever they do show up.
    Maybe holiday season gift? lol

    60 bucks for a 1:43 model...

    Maybe if it was a 1:18 model I could justify spending that much on it.

    The Ricko 1:18 die cast V's are MUCH cooler, but nearly impossible to find. Once in a blue moon, they'll show up on ebay. After some serious internet searching I ordered one from a hobby shop in Poland and it was the last black one they had in stock. Last I checked they had one silver one left.

    Nice scoop on the 1:18.

    I know it is a lot of $ for a little 1:43 Die cast, but i picked one up as it is nearly impossible to find anything larger. I actually bought mine from the same seller and it was in great condition. Only thing i found was that the wheels look more like the stock CTS 7 spoke of 2006, rather than the V wheels.

    Interior also looks more like my 03 lux, vs the V. The woodgrain wheel, etc.

    All new mounts and bushings and she's clunk free. Still has some killer wheel hop during desktop burnouts though..

    I've pondered one of those ricko models, they are hard to find and prices fluctuate wildly. I did buy one if the race car models, it's pretty neat.

    They never made a V1 matchbox car, that's what I really wanted for the desktop at work...

    Yeah, they seem to go anywhere from 50-80 bucks or so. The list on the one I just ordered was 50, but the shipping from polski-land was about 20 bucks. Not too bad though considering the cost for that 1:43 scale was almost 60 bucks.

    I really want there to be a V1 in Gran Turismo 5..
