I may have to start collecting street cars again.
I grew up pining after the ones you have here.
Well freaking done!

The acting is poor, but this remains a film that puts a smile on my face - especially because of Sheriff Buford T Justice's quotes throughout the film. An old neighbour was restoring one of these many years back. The Bandits Pontiac Firebird.

Still one of the best OTT cars of the period. Very nice model too.

How accurate would you say the shape of this Camaro is? It looks a bit long to me but I'm by no means a Camaro expert. I would to add one to my collection, the details look great.

I would have to defer to one of our American brethren - i think the angle makes the "hood" look longer than it is in the hand (ooo err missus). Im very happy with it.

I think the '69 Camaro is just one of those shapes that is very hard to shrink down. The HW61 may not be 100% spot on (few cars are0 but there is nothing that would put me off from buying it.
