Yeah, the white ones just arrived and the blue is due early Dec. I'm told they look great!

To everyone in the Group Buy I'm still working on details. I appreciate all the PM's and will post an update and hopefully start taking orders early next week.

Paul;
Yes, I have received the GT Diecast and am pleased with it. They did a great job on the car. From what I've been told the CS will have even more detail than the GT diecast. The exhaust will actually be colored aluminum (instead of all chrome) with chrome tips as it should be and the engine bay will have more detail. Will post some pic's when I can take them.

Crew - I have just been advised my Black Chrome CS is on its way down under. This is from the MINI MUSCLE CARS company , i have ordered one from our group buy as well. I am pretty sure the green light company did a special run for mini muscle - I was going to order the 24k gold version , but it thought it might be a little to Elvis for my subdued personality.

My white GT/CS die cast model arrived today. It looks great. There are a few funky things like the rear spoiler tapers out (almost lines up with the bumper at the top) and the front side light is crooked but for $40 I'm not complaining! In fact, I'm going to order another one.

Hey, that's my car!!!

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Arlie,

Did you break your antenna, or did it come that way? It may be just so authentic since most Mustangs antennas broke just like that.

As far as I can tell it came that way but I won't swear to it.

That's the way the model was done due to the fact that I have a power antenna on my car and it was down when they took the photo's.

It's probably a good thing that the antenna is that way. I can imagine that even with careful handling that would be the first thing to break off.

Does anyone have any good ideas about how to change out the white walls to the BF Goodrich Radials that are on some of the other diecast cars?? I wonder if it would be hard to do or do we need to buy one of the other diecast cars to change out??
