i found one on e bay 1/43rd scale. $295.00
it looked great. but not at that price. if it was around $90.00 i would have bought it.

YIKES!!:eek:

...that's a lot of scratch, for something that's going to be drilled more times, than Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton ,combined.:devil:

1:43? I wonder how much detail it had?

I found my Greyhound pull back but it's gonna be too big (6" or so) to display with 1:64 scale.
It would have made a much better Speed bus,anyhow.

The closest I can come up with is the Micro Machines "Greyhound Coach." Being a MM it's probably too small for what you're looking for, but the plastic would probably be easier to drill out :)

in this case,smaller is better.
Drilling the bullet holes would be a total nightmare though- but do-able, with fine tipped paint pen,or a sharp pointed dart.
smaller will fit into the same display slots as the 1:64 cars.

Some of my Hollywood cars are 1:87... small but are the right make, model and color I need, -until something better comes along.

Thanks for the tip,I'll have to look into it :thumbsup:
