Hi Chet,red73mustang said:Has anyone put out a guide for the complete history of Life Like Slot cars? I just found out that there is one for Marchon. (Grancheapskate, are you reading this)
if you have one Galoob, you have 50% of all cars produced! To my knowledge there were only the two cars from the Miami Vice set produced under the Galoob label, the Ferrari and the fancy Rolls Royce.
I bought one of the LL white-with-red Ferraris on Fleabay a couple years back... it was cheap, something like $5 for the body only. I bought it for a very specific purpose: I cut the roof off and painted it red and made it a replica of Franco's Ferrari from The Gumball Rally...slotmichl said:Joe, the molds were the same on both bodies, but the colors were different, so the Ferrari is hardly to be recognized: While the Galoob is brown with a tan roof, the LL is white with red stripes (from recollection)!
I bought one of those twinpacks when they came out about 3 years ago on the 'Bay; paid like $20. If Id known then what they bring now, Id have gotten more. Great pair of cars, that rolls is pretty pimp on its own!red73mustang said:I bought one of those twin packs too with the Ferrari and Rolls. My goal was to re create the Galoob Miami Vice set cars (I already have the Rolls -minus the front Grill) , but I don't trust my paint skills so I kept them as is. BTW Rick, I will look for those Bow Tie Brigade Cars I put aside for you. I am setting up at the Parsippany NJ show on May 20th
