Re: Die-cast 67-72

Funny, I haven't liked the stake body for being out of proportion. And I also am not big on collecting Coke stuff. But I really like this one.Coke did actually operate short heavy stake bodies for vending machine pickup/delivery. The sides were high for the tall machines. And I like that it isn't all chromed up, white wheels and all. Has an authentic look about it

Re: Die-cast 67-72

You'll be the first one here showing your new Pepsi C/40. They still make that?

Re: Die-cast 67-72

Got my Stars & Stripes '67 and one of the 100th Anniversary ones. I also, while I was at it, bought a lime green Blackwalls Bywayman with perfect paint (loose). One more thing. I got an Ertl pressed steel GMC S15, 1/16 scale. I like that it's a less common promo. I had a red TSC one in the box I bought way back whenever that I sold when I started carving the collection down. Shoot, I sold some of the old Bywayman Hot Wheels, too.

Re: Die-cast 67-72

What do you think of the Greenlight Hiway 61s?

Re: Die-cast 67-72

Nice detail for 1/64, but I forgot to mention, 1/16. That's what all Hwy 61s were. When I found out GL was bringing back the HWY 61s I got excited. Talking to another guy, he said they left much to be desired. Now I see what he meant. Nowhere near the quality of casting from before. At a glance you see a '70 C/10, but I could tear it up with criticism. I'll keep it to the same thing that bugs me on their 1/64s, that silly silver paint all around the door windows. I mean look at any real truck, that is not there so why do an extra step to add what does not belong? GL needs an advisor on accuracy on these trucks. Or just look at some pictures of real trucks.
