I think it was called "Hype".

Not really, it is because "1/64" scale trucks (MB, HW, RC, everybody) used to be about half the correct size. When you had a Car hauler even a VW would dwarf it and the semi haulers would hold like 4 cars.

These are the first ones of these I had seen and I was impressed.

And sorry if I offend you by posting new releases that may interest others that do not have access at their local stores .


Thanks :grin2:

The Memphis ambulance looks sharp! Keep wondering if we will see this chassis used for a fire engine down the road. It is nice to have actual 1/64 scale trucks!

I remember when GL posted a thread asking what members would like to see on the Durastar chassis, I suggested an ambulance. I had more of an intricately detailed Code 3 kind of thing in mind, so the results fell flat for me. I think Greenlight decided to go with the ambulance body mainly so they could get away with cheap and basic box they could apply lots of tampos to, so I'd be surprised if they ever release anything that resembles an authentic pumper.

Man I got the Gas Monkey hauler from TRU on the other side of town yesterday only to find out the driver side mirror is missing. Now I'm debating taking it back today in this searing Midwest heat. I love the truck but they didn't have another one on the pegs.
