I only have the 33b car but seeing them in that light makes m wish I had them all...or at least just the "59". Definitely the nicest Die cast I've seen.

I know I'd posted this in one of my first posts on the HAMB but I had to post this again because it's perfect for this post.

My roadster and my dad are forever related to these die casts. One of the images in the small book has my roadster with my dad standing next it at an El Mirage line up in 1947. It was running a 2-Port Riley at that time. The image is from Don Montgomery's Hot Rod in the Forties book. I purchased the die cast roadster not knowing the photo was inside.

This is the page from Hot Rods in the Forties.


Here is the shot in the Small booklet.

[quote=suhrsc;5178470]i've got them all... And then some.... Repainted a few....
I actually sort of copied them to build my roadster, then repainted one like my car...

They did a great job (except that the transmission is stuck in reverse )


SAH WEET!

My buddy Joe Kelly does a free live show every Saturday at 7pm ET. Usually an hour long and he covers all kinds of diecast. Live chat too if you have questions. Here is the site: http://www.thecarroom.com/tv/ I know he has some of these on a shelf somewhere. I'm sure he'll be happy to give a history lesson.
