Always wondered why these cars were peg warmers... They are very nice castings...

Just my personal opinion: maybe Firebirds are not as popular as Camaros? And '67 'Vettes are way way over-done.

Maybe they need to come up with some new cars, after they have been on the pegs for a couple years the sales slow down

I think in that first release, the purists didn't like the orange variation since the only actual TA was the white/blue. I like the silver one that came out more recently. I'm glad they made it.

The Vette, like all AW "Basics" suffers from poorly done wheels. Ever since they first appeared, AW has also suffered from limited distribution and W-M's hap-hazard system of loading one store and starving others. Right now, our local store has several peg warmers: Blue Cadillac, White Camaro's and Burg Comets. In other locales, they'd be gone.

Oh man, I wish. I have been looking all over for that blue Cadillac, along with the blue Roadrunner. That release never showed up here.

I certainly wouldn't pick any of them up, but that's mostly because they're rather overdone and I expect another brand would have one I wanted more.

As nice as they are, they are not in my sights only because I collect Mustangs and Ford trucks. There is so much that I like but not enough space.

I wonder if datsun 510 castings by diecast brands would end up like that in a few years time. there was a time when barely anyone was making them but now almost every small scale American brands has some sort of 510 in their casting lineup.

The 1:1 prototype was silver. I am glad Autoworld made the silver one.

Boy~O~Boy... You said it best my friend...
That's exactly how it is for me... I built a 24' X 16' room just for my cars and still haven't the space for all I want...
