Nice. But the only one I'll be getting out of this group is the Nova. I think it is time to put the Mustang and the Daytona and Superbee to bed.

I'll take the Nova too and I like the Super Bee with hub caps. "Grabber" Mustang is different and Black Charger looks cool. I never liked the Daytona, still don't and looked forward to '71 Charger but I'll wait for a better color.

This is a great set! Love those steel wheels with the dog-dishes. Anyone notice the new wheels on the Nova and Charger? And the 6 cylinder engine in the Nova? Sean continues to give us great options and details.... another reason M2 is my favorite manufacturer now!

THANK YOU MAN!!! I love the little 6 cylinder in our Nova. Who else in their right mind has ever tooled up the little 250 straight 6 for a '67 Nova??? And please get out a magnifying glass and look at the beautiful tampo work on the 250 fender emblems. This little Nova also has another little secret coming soon.

FYI, the '66 Charger also has the two rear seats down in the forward position and no front bumper guards.

Thanks,
Sean

Finally some cars with whitewalls instead of redlines !! I like the 66 Charger without bumper guards too .
71 Charger in my favorite Plum Crazy color ! Will be getting most of this set ...
Any chance of a 67 Cyclone in the future ?? ( I have the real thing for M2 to measure up if needed ..)

I like that the Mustang is a regular fastback with optional stripe. Missing hood locks would have been nice touch. Thing I hate about opening features is evident with the Mustang. Stripe is horribly aligned because of door.

Good eye, Brock. But, did GM make 6 cylinder Super Sports? I thought that badging (on rear quarter) was for 8s only....

If I'm not mistaken, you could get a 6 in any SS from Novas, Malibus, and all the way up to Impala SS's. They probably stopped this by '67 or so.

Oooo! Just picked up the whole set of R8. Even better looking in your hand! The vinyl top on the Superbee is different from what other companies have done; it's semi-gloss and has a very fine texture. Plus, along with the dog-dish wheels:thumbsup:, there is a bench seat inside! It also seems that QC is better, everything seems to be attached & lined up well. The new 71 Charger is neat too. And, the Daytona has a one-piece nose; no closed "opening" headlights. Got to study more, I'm sure there are some other goodies that have gone un-noticed.

I bought the light yellow colored Nova since I owned one the exact color and make. I ended up sleeping/living in it for 3 months when I first moved to Florida. Thank goodness it was winter time down here.
