PICS - 1967 Caddy Eldorado by American Excellence (Neo)

Post by stewil » Tue Nov 23, 2010 12:07 pm

This is an excellent model of a long awaited replica. In fact, it made me redo a shelf in one of my displays. Here is the result. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Here she is among her FWD friends on the bottom shelf.

The display contains cars that were "game changers" or paradigm shifters, the most important being the Model T and number two, the Austin/Morris Mini.

And here is the description located next to the display containing the worlds most significant automobiles.

Sorry, did not think to take a bunch of shots of the individual model.
Also, anyone know of a 1/43ed scale model of the 1st FWD Olds Tornado? That would make for a great pair.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

I believe Tekno produced a 1:43 diecast of the Mk I Olds Toronado. Other makers include Solido, Politoys, Corgi, Atlas.

How's the roof on that Caddy? Is it cheap plastic or resin?

Thank you for your replies Gentlemen. Was unaware that anyone had done the Olds other than Hot Wheels. Am looking forward to Spark's issue.
The Caddy Eldorado is all resin and very crisply done. The more I look at this Neo produced model the more impressed I am. I hope Spark will do as well with the Olds.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

What an interesting way to display your models, Steve! :)

I've noticed that you have a 1960 Plymouth among these cars. Being a fan of Chrysler Corporation cars, especially those from the late 50s-early 60s, I would love to know why you consider it to be a "paradigm shifter"?

I've also couldn't help but notice that gorgeous Tatra and the unique Rumpler Tropfenwagen. They seem to be 1:24s. Who makes (or made) them? Franklin Mint? Danbury Mint?... And, is that Citroën DS also a 1:24? :?



And, here's a photo of my old Oldsmobile Toronado model, by Corgi.

I hope that you like it! ;)

No offence. But how is this a theme?

Surely it would be more fitting in the road/muscle section.
