That's a really nice custom! I love it.

Here's one from another site I participate in. It is amazing.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

Here's one that I did for my dad. It started as a Kmart green Silverado earlier this year. It turned out great after I color sanded it and cleared it. Sadly I didn't get any finished pictures of it due to time issues.

I also saw a list of 2015 Redline Club cars from HotWheelCollectors.com and noticed that an '83 Silverado 4x4 was listed.

I bought one of those holders at a garage sale full of HotWheels for next to nothing and would love to know where they sell at .

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I just saw there is another 83 Silverado slated for 2015 CFH48 #16 in the HW Performance line. I wonder what this one will look like? What brand name will it display? There will also be a new 62 Chevy custom in the Surf Patrol line , a 67 custom in the Heat Fleet and a 52 in the Then and Now line. Looks like a good year for Chevy Diecast.

Yeah, I was just going through the list and saw that. I was glad to see that they're finally going to utilize that awesome '67 C10 casting again. For fans of newer trucks, there's a Chevy Silverado ('07-'13 bodystyle) coming up in the Then and Now series.

I don't know if this is for real or not, but it sure is cool. A video I ran across yesterday.

Yeah, it's real. I hadn't seen any pics of it yet, but that's the one that will be out in 2015 through the RedLine Club on HotWheelsCollectors.com. That's pretty much the 2015 version of the green and black Silverado with the whitewalls that is a holy grail of the Silverados right now. I just wish they would have done it in a different color scheme than the Modern Classics truck. Still badass, though. I'm going to have to try and pick up a couple.

No. I haven't seen when these will be available. RedLine Club members get a priority ordering window. I can't remember if it's a day or 2 or a week. After that priority window is done, then non RLC members of the site can order. I'm not an RLC member, but I'm considering it for this truck.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I am . I joined a few weeks ago. I tried ordering some things on the 23rd when it was half off. The truck I was after sold out in two minutes. I couldn't stay around the computer that long.

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

Is there a "Look what I got" thread in this forum? i guess this is the place f not. I know Andy started this before there even was this forum for scaled creations. he played a big part in this forum coming into being, so thank you sir!

Anyhow, I am w/o a camera for now. But last weekend I went to our local antique tractor club annual farm toy show held on Sunday. Missed the Saturday auction due to a snow storm. My funds are low but I had to get out and look anyway. I wish I had more cash on me because I saw so much GM diecast, mostly M2 and GL. I narrowed it down to just two Greenlights I didn't have. I got that limited edition dark blue & white Midnight Edition '72 w/cap and the medium green & white '68 Country Roads w/tool box. So, I blew a 20 and went home happy, but wishing I was happier!
I walked it through (hardly anyone there) before deciding and saw some great stuff. When I went back around I couldn't find some I was considering. I swear, I was about the only one looking. I saw the JL Blazer w/John Deere tractor and that was number one due to rarity. I could always find GLs. I saw about every Task Force M2 made. if I hadn't just blown 70 bucks with Robert recently I would have brought more money. although that money probably would have gone to something silly like paying a bill or food. That's how it's been with being a low-volume contractor with a house payment (better half her crazy debts rolled*) from back when this was a two income household. Down to a hundred bucks stashed, bout $60 in my wallet, a tank of fuel, freezer/cupboards full, and the next day (yesterday) recieved an $1,800 check. Hey you vendors, please come back!

* Ever hear the one about the dog who lost his head over a little bit of tail? well, I lost my ass

Re: 73-87 hot wheels and die cast thread

I found a new Silverado yesterday. All metal. Looks like the rivets are in the same place as the $1 versions; so maybe some bodys swaps can be done.
This is the one "1badgmc" was referring to in post #170. Took long enough for them to get released.

Yes, the body can be swapped onto the lowered '83 chassis. I have 4 of these Friday Night Lights trucks coming and plan to swap one of them onto a low chassis.

I'm REALLY surprised people are finding these in stores already. I always buy my Entertainment series cars by the case and I generally have them in hand a month before anyone finds them in stores. My case hasn't even shipped yet.

Here I have the 2012 Off-Road Silverado 4x4 and then I have another with the body swapped onto the lowered chassis. Drill the rivets, swap the bodies, put 'em back together.

How do you put yours back together?
When I first started doing the body swaps, I super glued them. Now I use the button head socket screws. I go through a lot of the little allen wrenches though; rounding off the ends. :<(
