Hi,
Is there any chance the black '69 COPO White Lightning 451-02 is for sale?Please email me at [email protected].
Thanks
Rick
Wow welcome aboard! Dredging up an old post there eh? The black '69 wasn't noted as a COPO if that makes a difference. It's not likely to still be around but it never hurts to ask. Maybe post what you are looking for on our Swap & Sell board.

Grab bags were available again from our Playing Mantis people? I call every month or two, and they tell me they aren't available! No more newsletters? One of my favorite perks about being a member was ordering the grab bags. I hope you enjoy them, seems like you got a good variety! I guess I should have been calling on a weekly basis?

Al,

The original post is from 2 years ago. There are no grab bags

So is this like a "Best of Hobby Talk" rerun or an episode of the Twilight Zone where Gary is like the German U-boat Captain where he keeps reliving the same incident over and over?

The black '69 Camaro was good stuff. Either plain or as a WL.
I was totally shocked when I read this posting yesterday.
I had read the date beside Gary's name, but wondered why this subject
was brought up now. That '69 Camaro WL is long gone.

Cheers. Cobra

It's like a good / bad dream ... all those awesome PM grab bags. Those were the days. Talk about raising the dead.

I'm still here and have new stuff on my website regularly. Just been too busy with other things to have noticed this thread til now.
