yeah i am a big Dub City collector. i like some of the Road Rats series and the Old Skool is my favorite. i wish they would come out with a 1:24 Fleetwood already. they said they would when they came out with the 1:64 scale. it even had an article in Lowrider magazine in which Jada said that they would make it in 1:24 scale because it was so popular. me and Dopestar started a thread a long while back about the 1:24 Fleetwood. gosh that was an old thread, its what over a year old or so? an Allante in pink huh? man that is freakin awesome, i would love to get ahold of one. i only collect 1:24 scale though but a 1:64 would be cool. i have a few 1:32(?) scale models, a 30 something Phaeton and a 34 Fleetwood. the only 1:18 scale i have is an XLR and a 2001 Lincoln Town Car stretch limo.

It will be easier for you to get the Cadillac models there in the States, i struggle for them here, Ebay is a good source though. Ive had the Allante since 1996.

I have some 1:18, some 1:24, and mainly its the 1:64 i like, Matchbox models, theyre cheap, theyre collectable, and theyre beautifully crafted. I have a few cabinets in my office, and i periodically changethem around with the ones stored in the bottom of the cabinets (covered doors)

I recently bought a job lot of 5 on ebay, Some of which will go into the "playworn" box in my attic, because they have some damage, the other three were fine.

They came on Friday.

1:64 Datsun 260Z 2+2 (silver) - mint
1:69 rolls Royce Silver Spirit (light gold) - mint
1:60 Rover Sterling (red/silver) -playworn
1:58 Jeep Cherokee (silver) - mint
1:64 Porsche 911 Turbo (blue/yellow) - playworn

All Matchbox

1.75 without P+P

Im great at this

Most og mine are Matchbox Superfast, I also have some of the bigger Superkings models, DUB city isnt something that ive heard of before.. We get Burago and also Maisto. Matchbox 1:64 wins hands down because they are so well made and cost about 1.00 each (about $1.70) and are really great castings. MY kids loved these things.

I find it really hard to get Cadillac models, theyre just not here, although I am finding some on Ebay, so i cannot complain. Maybe with the advent of the Cadillac brand being reintroduced to the UK we will get more models.

You clearly have a sizable collection of Caddies, i just have my two.

I should list all of mine, but it would take me a LONG time. I do know there is an 88 Matchbox Lincoln Town Car, and a 197X Continental. I wonder why there are less caddies

Adam
10-23-05, 08:22 PM
man it must be hard to be a UK Caddy man. go here: www.jadatoys.com look under DUB City and you can find all my Cadillacs. i have other Cadillacs from their old line which was a lowrider line called "Street Low". its a discontinued line. i lucked out finding most of them at Trader's Village. like i said, i have more i know but i cant think of them right now. i have over 200 cars.

Adam

Yup, Maisto makes it and I've hit all the Hobby stores, Wallmart, Superstore and Costco! No luck. Costco had a HUGE pellet of hundreds of diecasts but still no one bothers carrying that DTS. I'll keep my hopes up before Christmas, and it only costs 12-15 dollars that I've seen. Costco was the cheapest and they even had a 300 C in silver which was nice...

where'd you order it from?

that Pontiac i seen at trader's village, there is a guy there who only sells diecast cars and he had that little beauty sitting there, his last one. i looked at it and it had Cadillac hubcaps, that is what sold me on it. i like collecting these cars, probably cause ill never own them in real life.

man addy that sucks dude. keep looking, maybe you'll run across a Fleetwood.

O.K. little boys with your toys:D

My turn for bragging rights. My diecast is one of a kind. No other exists. It's a 2005 Cadillac CTS prepared for NASCAR in Jeff Gordon #24 w/ blue paint and flames. The fellow that did this lives in NY. Tough NASCAR rules stopped the reproduction of the decals without a license. The license is very expensive so he quit doing it.
VAROOM!!

is yours the 1:18 or the 1:24? i collect the 1:24's but i couldnt find them. i seen a 1:18 at the store the other day and said, the minute i buy this i will run across a 1:24. so i screwed with the universe and brought it all the way to the front, set it down and ran out as fast as i could, knocking out three Jehova's witnesses into the wal mart greeter who hit the carts and sent them back through the area they rest at and into the parking lot totalling two hondas and critically injuring a 5 year old. i drove as fast as i could to traders village and found the 1:24. TAKE THAT UNIVERSE!!!!!!!

Adam
10-24-05, 04:30 PM
oh Dope, did you see the 1940 Pontiac? it has Cadillac hub caps on it, i figured you might like that, check one out sometime if you get a chance. it has a removable vinyl top also.

DopeStar 156
10-24-05, 06:13 PM
Yeah mine's the 1:18. Is the Pontiac a 1:18 too? I woud just buy it as a "parts car" just for the wheels.

no its 1:24. yeah that is why i told you about the Cadillac wheels, you can put them on the 84 Coupe Deville you got somehow :thumbsup:. i dont collect 1:18, too big and too expensive. the only 1:18s i have are an XLR and a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo (black with gold wheels and trim.)

I wish I had a 1:24 '84 Coupe. I have two 1:24 '79 Coupes, one's a lowrider and one's a customized original. I have a Jada 1:24 '59 pink Coupe but it's stock and has Cadillac wheels. I have a 1:64 '81 Coupe, '81 Seville, '59 Coupe, '95 Fleetwood, and '85 Brougham coupe. I also have a 1:64 '63 Continental.

holy crap dude! you didnt know about the, well i think its 1:25, Lowrider 84 Coupe Deville?!?!?! whatever company that makes the Lowrider addition model cars makes those. says "Cutsom Cadillac" on the side of the box. i thought you had one of them! next time you are at the store or something, thumb through Lowrider and they have a full page add for it. it is about the same color as you Brougham, a kind of redish/ burgundy color. i cant think of who makes them though.
