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

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.

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...
