Hope all is well and talk to you soon but for now enjoy the sneak peaks Mike G is posting.

Thanks!

No problem, Tony! I am excited to see you guys back in the 1:64 arena. Oh, and I forgot JL makes a very nice '70 Mustang fastback. It would sell regardless because it's a Mustang but maybe another Ford needs some love. Maybe a 1967 Galaxie 2 door?

I see AMC is ignored.

I will trade most non-AMC cars I post for AMX/AMC

Very interesting, especially the 61 Dodge and Cadillac. IN-scale tires and wheels are important to me. It's one place GL and JL just don't measure up.
How about some mid-line or low-line models? Everybody else (especially M2) concentrates on top-of-the-line models. Any year Chev Biscayne or BelAir; Pontiac Ventura or Catalina; Plymouth Belvedere (62-64);

I would like to see some new models, not just rehashing what has already been done over and over, like Z28 Camaro’s and Boss Mustangs, I have nothing against pony cars, I have a 1:1 Z28 and a couple hundred Z28 diecast.
How about some that haven’t been done but are still popular like ‘48 Ford, Chevrolet and Plymouth coupes and sedans, ‘58 Ford, ‘75 El Camino, ‘60 Oldsmobile, ‘60 Pontiac, ‘70 Ranchero, Concept cars of the ‘50’s, AMC of most any version, ‘30’s stock sedans, the list could go on and on.
Cars that don’t have wheel wells that you can fit tractor tires in. Not over looking the buyers market, a lot of these TOYS are bought by parents and grand parents who look for cars they are familiar with and can relate to and they buy a lot of toys for their kids and grand kids.
Would be nice if they were in proportion to each other, preferably in 1/64 scale as that has been the approved scale to a degree. When you put a ‘49 Ford pickup next to a ‘69 Camaro and the truck will fit in the trunk of the Camaro, it just doesn’t look right, I know when Matchbox started they were to fit in a given box size but time and packaging has changed.
People don’t mind paying a little more if the quality is there and the cost is the same to make it wrong as it is to make it right and market them so people can find them, everybody doesn’t live in or near a big city, is hard to buy what you can‘t see, seeing ads is fine but seeing it in your hand is where the truth is and where it counts.
Wish you luck and hope it all goes well.

Well, I'm probably looking at this the wrong way & should sit down, shut up and go along with things, but I can't. The rally wheels on the Dart and the Magnums on the 71 Mustang are shallow on outside. Too much offset on the inside. Just sayin'. If we're trying to get off to a good start, getting the details right will go a long way. The tires on the 69 TA look too tall and almost every TA that year was ordered with Rally II's. If you look at 61 Polara's, the hubcaps don't hang out that far from the rim lip. Sorry guys- I'm seeing some good things but the total package has some rough edges. I realize the 84 Camaro is in the budget group but the slotted rims don't work for that car.

Being a fogey, the most exciting casting in the newly announced AW lineup for me is the '61 Polara. Exciting because nobody else makes one, unlike all the pony cars out there. Some time back, MB did a 1/72 (approx) Phoenix convertible but I've been hankering for a 1/64 '61 Dodge hardtop for a long, long time. Thanks, AW!

There are some terrific ideas being posted about possible future castings, notably a first-gen Barracuda. Great idea!
(Racing Champions did a 1/64 first-gen Barracuda years ago but the casting was based on Richard Petty's "43 Jr." drag racer of 1965, complete with hood scoops, racing wheels and interior, and missing the front bumper.)

Tony / Mike -

Drop me a line, am curious about distribution on these, they look great. The TRU line was only available to Resin sellers of your other products, but since I don't sell resin, Autoworld would not sell to me.

Let me know who I should talk with.

Hope all is well with you Boys - good to see you posting again!! miss you dudes!!! sniff snifff...........

Umm, that's actually a Dart or Phoenix, not a Polara. The Polara was a bigger car and, although it looked similar overall, it had big honkin' taillights up in the 'fins'. Personally, I prefer the look of the Phoenix. Thanks, Auto World, I can hardly wait.
