I'm wondering why there are no more releases of Showroom Cars? I liked that series. I did find out that the Ford GT and mystery new car were bumped from 05 R1 to be replaced by another H2 and Mini (peg hanger!), but the Lancer EVO is gone (smell ya!). I hope the tail lights have been made 05 specific (the amber rear turn lenses are gone), and I seriously doubt the GTO base has been updated to feature the dual exhausts exiting one from from each side. Also, it seems as if the 84 H/O has been bumped from CG R26, I hope it makes a showing soon.

Cool, thanks for the list. I don't see the 84 H/O on there, or any more variations of that casting, which doesn't make me too happy. I do see a 68 and 71 Cutlass, I didn't know they were able to do a 68 off the same casting, or maybe there are two? I see they snuck in a Galaxie and a 66 Impala I hadn't heard they were doing. I'll finally get my 67 Toronado, and a Hornet. Overall, alot of stuff I'm looking forward too. Still no Monaco sedan unfortionately:(. I saw a nice stock one parked all by itself the other day green with a black top, but I didn't have a camera with me to snap a shot.

Just a guess about Mustangs and Fords, but that's the name of a magazine...maybe they are "Cover Cars"?

Yea, I know. But I figured that I would just leave the name "Primedia" until I can confirm the names of the series since they'll probably come from one of their mags anyways. :thumbsup:

That would be sweet, along with correct wheels. :D
I'd guess yes on the hood, since they showed a promo a couple of NF's back of the '78-'79 Formula. But no on the wheels... Then again who really knows...

Yeah, the wheels are really starting to annoy me. Mostly the ones they put on the '79's. They'll probably end up using the wheels from the TATA.

Hopefully they'll read this and do it right, or maybe PMS can put a word in for us. :D

I know I'm REALLY late in asking this, but do the TRU T/A's have a Real Wheel version too?
Nope, sorry. They are only offered in plastic. :cry: Would be nice to match them up to releases 1 and 2 though...

Firebirds release 3 is not a TRU exclusive, unless of course I own a TRU that I dont know about. :thumbsup:

answer to the question is NO.

Well, that just saved me $ and a few trips to TRU. Thanks!
