I have been most thankful that Wheat's Nostalgia, one of the leading vendors of original promo cars, has created the "Memory Lane" line of new 1/25-scale promos based on The Modelhaus' 1/25-scale resin cast kits. The Memory Lane promos are not cheap, but they are beautifully finished and they do not warp. One of the things that I've particularly appreciated is that several models or body styles have been offered which were not originally available as 1/25-scale promos or kits. It is also possible to specify any factory original color combination when ordering the models.
To date, I have purchased the following models in the series, which have been a great addition to my collection of original promos and dime store frictions:
1957 Buick Roadmaster 2-door Riviera
1958 Buick Roadmaster 75 convertible
1958 Buick Limited 2-door Riviera (never available previously in 1/25-scale)
1959 Pontiac Bonneville 4-door Vista (never available previously in 1/25-scale)
1961 Buick Invicta 4-door hardtop (never available previously in 1/25-scale)
Okay, I'm a Buick guy, but the selection of other marques, particularly the Chrysler products, is most impressive. Check out the current available promos here: Memory Lane Extras
Art, any comments about the dime store frictions, which were typically offered along with the original dealer promos and the kits?
