    Ron, who makes the diecast Harley Earl Lasabre and what scale is it? Always was one of my favorite Harley Earl concepts that I might want to ad to my collection. I had the pleasure of helping set this car up for a parents weekend car show when our Son was at GMI in the 90's.

    Another favorite was the Waldorf Corvette. Scored this 1/24 diecast version to add to my collection awhile back. The design was an inspiration for me to recently build my own full size version using a Gen5 Camaro instead.

  5. The Lasabre is 1/24 scale. It's made by the Franklin mint. I'm not sure when it was made. I've had mine for many years. RON... 20190219_100248.jpeg 20190219_095631.jpeg 20190219_100357.jpeg 20190219_100548.jpeg 20190219_100452.jpeg 20190219_095631.jpeg 20190219_100127.jpeg

    Any one still around.....I was just kind of going through some boxes in my die-cast room looking for something I haven't found yet....and run across some cars that were torn down for rebuilds and not finished up...usually because I didn't have the right part or I just moved on ...well this 32 is from Racing Champions...not to bad of a car, the scale seems off a little , not alot of detail but it did have a very nice black finish on it ...the engine was kind of generic so I opted for a tranplant... thats when I started having problems with the scale the engine is a little larger than 1/25th and 1/24th in some ways but the rest of the car seems pretty close ,all most in between the two... I swapped out the tires and wheels for what's on it now ...the rear wheels I had to build myself from others to get the deep off set that I wanted...then it was put away till I found a engine that fit right....that was s couple years ago ...well it's back on the table and I am putting a engine together that I think will be close enough....I wanted something kind of nasty to go along with the sinister,in the shadows, look crossed with some 60's trends mixed in...so it will be a duel carb ,blower fed 409 / 4spd ...color is to be black with green pearl added to the clear final coats ...the bottom sides of the fenders and the fire wall will be metal flake white with mother of pearl added to the final clear coats...and interior is all white ...that's the plan...so back to work... 20190301_122319(0).jpeg 20190301_122136.jpeg 20190301_122150.jpeg 20190301_121529.jpeg 20190301_121444.jpeg 20190301_121326.jpeg 20190301_121300.jpeg 20190301_121324.jpeg

    Picked up this Tootsietoy Stake truck #748 at the Lakeland Autofest in Florida. Was still in pretty good shape and different from other trucks I have. A little cleaning and paint before I added it to my collection.

    Just pulled this one in for repairs...37 Chevy by Fist Gear 2002...its really not to bad for a supply house die-cast...its a bank ..coin slot is in the cooler located in the trunk..also found the missing taillights in there...the car is a little out dated being in the street rod category styles...wouldn't take much to bring it more up to date and more on the traditional style... 20190305_111451.jpeg 20190305_110841(0).jpeg 20190305_110801.jpeg 20190305_111112.jpeg 20190305_110956.jpeg 20190305_111351.jpeg 20190305_111239.jpeg 20190305_110702.jpeg 20190305_110624.jpeg

    This one is one of several I inherited from a friend...1959 Chevrolet Elcamino by ERTL...its going to get cleaned and some details taken care of, fixing the chrome that has worn off around the windows...replacing the door handles and mirrors.....I did find a pair of bumpers for it...was thinking about possibly changing out the grill for something else and shaving the handles ...I will look through my bumper and grill inventory and see what I find...there is a continental kit and duel antennas from a same year Impala there also....interesting....who knows..
    I see it's got a large trailer hitch on it ...must of been towing something... 20190305_125729.jpeg 20190305_125903.jpeg 20190305_125942.jpeg 20190305_131346.jpeg 20190305_131750.jpeg

    rudestude, I have several models of my real builds. I found one of these First Gear 37's and used it to recreate a full size late 80's build of my 37 Chevy Chopped 2dr sedan that I still drive.
