I -LOVE- that hearse! I also want to get my hands on a Deville. I've seen die-cast Q45s but they're all tiny and overpriced (imported).

Ahhhh... Z-hills. Spent a week there in the mid 80's throwing myself from various "perfectly good" airplanes (including a 1923 Navy N3-N3) plus a little off-airport activity involving a female park ranger. :shhh: :devil:

ah :annoyed: piss on stock, its no fun. boring. so what size are all yours? i dont hardly collect 1:18, they are too big and take up alot of space. i do like the detail though. i have made a few special occasions, like Cadillac XLRs and Maserati's and Corvettes and Ferraris. but other than that... nah. i did get a Dropstar XLR in 1:24 (actually i think theirs are 1:20 but im not sure). and i got a 1:24 Big Time Muscle Corvette.

huh, our parts counter doesnt sell them, it would be cool if they did though cause id already have them. shoot they are like what 80 bucks or something? im gonna check Cadillac's website.

hey, you still got that thing from Hallmark you showed us, what was it, last year? that Cadillac/ Buick dealership from the 30s or something? i wonder if they still sell them?

Stoneage_Caddy
11-12-05, 09:53 PM
yes the dealership is new for this year , so you should be able to get it at any hallmark

80 bucks for the 16 ???? i didnt know it was that much ...who makes it ? if its and autoart or gmp its well worth it ...

and most of mine are 1/18 ...detail is what i want ....

my dad collects 1/18 indy cars from the 50s and 60s ....

reminds me i need to holler at mccombie , to see if he can get me the diecast indy turbine thats only sold there ....too bad its the small 1/40 scale ...but weve been after one for some time now

as for stock ....well one day once i have the room id like to buy about 5 EXTs , a few devilles and others and set up liek a 1/18 dealership

Adam
11-12-05, 09:58 PM
ok i looked at their website and it is 60 bucks... so is the V. ha suckers i got them for 49.99 and for 39.99. the V race car is 85... oh come on, overpriced. oh wait, GM duh.

now that would be cool. i am gonna make an older dealership from the 30s like the hallmark one. i got a 32 Phaeton and a 34 Fleetwood so i got two for my 30s collection. they are 1/32, i wish i could find more of the 30s model Cadillacs. that is my dream to make one of them.

the CTS-V racecar has been a dissapointment for me .....while its detailed to the max and it looks wesome nothing opens up ....its a curbside ....but i got it becuse i like the cars so much ...otherwise i normally dont buy ....i like to open them up and look inside and everything ...

GMP's Grand Nationals are frickin sweet too , they even have keys in the iginition that dangle like the real thing ....I still havent bought one ....I know i can get them pretty easy so i passed 3 up to get the SVO which is very hard to get now

I have that Eldorado Pace Car too. They also used to have normal Eldorados thats what I really wanted but they don't make them anymore and I couldn't get one the colour I wanted so I got the Pace Car instead.

I'd give $100 for a 75/76 Caddy. I'd use it as a hood ornament if it was 1:36 or smaller... still over half a foot at that scale...

I found some 92-02 Eldos, but they were very poorly done...
