More Unattainable AFX cars?

I hope Auto World produces more of the "Ultra Rare" AFX cars that are so far out of reach for the average collector. I'm talking about cars like the "Sugar Daddy Datsun 510", the "Petty Mail-away Chager", the "Shadow Can Am #3 White / Red / Blue", "The Rebel Charger". Tom already did the Auto World McLaren XLR #7 Orange / Blue and I just don't care if it lowers the value of the originals, I want them all!!!!

I have been dying for a 34 slimline pickup truck repop. Dash did the super modified which was an excellent choice, but there are so many more.

how about putting flames on those 55 chevy's? the sunburst nomads in original and newer colors.......wow.

A guy on Hobby Talk (Dragula I think) was toying with the idea of making Resin AFX 71 Charger Stockers + the rebel flag and numbers may be already available. He was also doing some amazing Orange and Clear reproduction AFX chassis too.

Flames on 55...oooooh yeah!

sethndaddy,

Well this post got me to join this forum. I only belong to one other elementownersclub.com and am a big slot car freak like the rest of you. I have stripped a chrome red AW 55 chevy in Pine Sol to get the white look. Hope that I'm not reapeating what others have said already here. Beeing New is akward but, will just have to start keeping up and reading post here now.

Anyways I want a couple flamed out 55s also and am going to airbrush a Yellow Badman 55 using a "bnbgoodies" (Bruce Gavin not Bad dog anymore) reproduction body without the hood scoop and using a red tic tack pack (yucky extream fruity flavor...yuck!) for the red hood scoop and painting the clear window with a transparent Alclad red. Got the water slide decals and picked up a nice 1/24 built kit for a good price to display with it also. JL used the Badman for a diecast....Cmon' AW!!!!! Two Lane Blacktop 55....oooooh yeah!

:wave: Hello everyone out there in slot car land, Bob

Thanks everyone for the nice welcome.

It is raining here now so, can't paint my 55 yet. Have the paint picked out. I am going to use Testors Metalic amber turn signal paint over white paint. Well first I want to try it out on a junker body then if it gives me the desired color I want will go for it.

If you paint this Amber paint over Silver it comes out a nice Metalic Gold color. Now that I have a bunch of House of Kolor paint I am ready to start spraying. Testors still makes lots of cool colors as does Alclad also. I love paint!!!!!!!!!!!

Being a t-jet Guy, I am looking forward to the '50's Classics being done for the Pancake Motor. Am I the only out here looking for someone to do a '57 T-bird, '57 Chevy Nomad and perhaps a '59 panel delivery?

Those would be Fantastic! PM me when they make them and let me know. lol

Have you been to RRR (road racing replicas) sight. They have lots of stuff. I have almost ordered from the a bunch of times but, then get tired of writing down my order. If it was click and buy....someday. They have some cool stuff like you are talking about.

I always am doing a search on the bay for "custom slot cars" you can find some sweet stuff with this search. I will link some pics from Auctions I have seen lately...............Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz it is done.

Not realy what you were looking for but, looking is always fun. Goodluck on your quest for those cool bodies. I know I just saw a 55 Nomad custom on the bay. It was on a T-Jet chassis and was made from a cross between AFX 55 and 57 Nomad. It is amazing what you can do with a little hacking and bondo.....

A delivery would be way cool!!!!!!!!!! Bob

I saw these pics of a real 55 Hearse and thought you might like to see them Tom. Slot car project for sure. If it happens somebody gots to send me dem picks!!!! Hey I may try my hands at this Hearse but, not any time soon....

I saw this orange and white 55 on the bay last week and saved the picture. It looks pretty cool. :cool:

It is warming up this weekend and looks like my 55 body will be getting a yellow paint job this weekend in the garage. Yeeeeeeeeeeees!!!!

The Afx firetrucks never made it to production, but a few 'repops' were made. Hopefully it'll make it in a future "XTruckin" release.

Heres one of the repros that made it to auction:

Sweet reproduction Firetruck. The ladder is original from the Canada plant as it states in the Auction. That is pretty good I think. Rare enough for me! :) I want one. Checked out his other Auctions....woah nice stuff. Can I barrow some money from anybody? please! :confused:

fIRETRUCK and 55 chevys

Bob,Thanks for the pictures.This is some fact about the Firetruck.The factory built 6 of them.Some had yellow lettters,some had black.The ladder was off a Corgi Diecast When Bob Beers was doing the pictures I actually owned 2 complete rigs and the front of a third.They weren't perfect.I remember when the repos came out years ago.They looked better than the originals.Hope this helps Tom Stumpf
