I never really heard of this model until recently, so I went on the hunt for them, I think I'm three or four short now, a local collector has the green one for me, just have to pick it up. Thanks to some trades and Ebay I've gotten these. I dig these older cars.

Very nice, Gerald. I have long appreciated the old gangster barges by HW.

From memory I believe you are missing the first release from about 1985, looks a lot like the black one but with white wall wheels. And if you have the green on the way, then you are only missing the orange and the red from the Larry's Garage series. And that should do it.

Congratulations! Nice little collection going.

There is the Red Line Club release too, I was unaware of the Blackwall with the Whitewall tires, add that to the list.

Love this casting. Does the black one have a 3rd window open? i mean with the glass windows? Is it a different casting?
Same casting with a window in it, just a modification
Actually, the extra window is original to the casting, the modification was blocking it in for these more recent releases. I kinda like the landau roof, but I am still partial to the first release with the white walls and extra windows. It goes very nice with a group of classic white walls from that era...Rolls Royce, Deusie, Auburn, Mercedes 540K, Talbot, Bugatti

Wow Great finds! Congrats. That Super is a nice looking car. I'm sure you could trade it for some type of VW you want... Thanks for thinking of me too!
