Well, I've been running out of space and have been trying to scale back what I 've been collecting lately, so I've decided to try and mainly stick to black castings.

I think I made the decision because, in my opinion, most castings will always look good in black. I have to admit its not working that well and I still am picking up some other coloured castings if I can't wait for a black version, but it has helped me slow down.

That said my display case is now 0ver 90% black and is looking pretty sharp. Here are some of my favorite General Motors Classics from the 1950's that snuck out of the case for a photo op...

1953 Buick Super:


1955 Chevrolet Belair:


1957 Chevrolet Belair:


1958 Chevrolet Impala:



1959 Chevrolet Impala:


1959 Cdillac Eldorado:


Cheers,
Greg

I like them all, but there's just something about that buick.
...that was one of the first cars I picked up when I started collecting a few years ago and it is still a favorite. :)

The black '53 Buick from The Fabulous Motorama series is the best version of that casting, IMO.
All of those look great in black! :thumbsup:
But for the '59 Impala vert, I am partial to the powder blue version from Auction Insanity.

Great idea collecting only one color. :thumbsup: My buddy is hooked on the color purple. I like a variety of colors, so I can't pick just one color.

Nice pics! :thumbsup:

Hey Dr.Olds the "quote" was actually " You can have any color car you want as long as it's black" Henery Ford. I also like the "Black castings" They just seem to reach out & grab your attention. ZF.
