Wow, very cool '67 Paul! :wub:

Is scale 1:18?

Can you tell me where can I get one of these? I collect all Buicks in 1:18 scale and have few Rivieras already...  :D

I recommend you to put it in a box, so it don't become dusty! 

 

Haha, yes Girls on Buick... There is a lot of diorama pinup girls to decorate your car models... (http://americandiorama.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=352)

Nice -- where did you find it?  Was it black when you received it, or did you give it a custom paint-job?

You have a fantastic collection!

I can not find a metal (die-cast) '67.

So, I bought this dealer promotion (plastic) on ebay. With Super Deluxe wheels. Length 22cm.

Disassembled and painted. Thank you.

Hi Paul

 

Thank you! All metal diecast models... ?

 

Wow, so you made it by yourself? Absolutely awesome! Congrats Paul, one argument more to put it in a dustfree box! ?

 

I seach the web for all posible Rivieras, but I couldn't find a nice '67 1:18 in metal... Cool models in scale above 1:32 are rare or very expesive!

Btw, 22cm is something in between 1:18 and 1:24... That makes the model very special 'cos it is not in that norm. I like it very much! Welldone Paul! ???

I preordered this model last year... Don't tell me I'm totally crazy, I know it but I couldn't resist! Its a handmade 24 item limited and signed homage edition Riviera - I hope to get the No. 1! :D

Schmiddy,

 

I thought of you for this 1/18 Riviera Concept:

Hey Paul!

This concept car is already on my list! :lol: ...thank you for the link!
I made a bid on that one who ship worldwide for free (China): http://www.ebay.ch/itm/162063513675?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2648&autorefresh=true (still waiting, if he accept my proposal)

 

I couldn't resist, yesterday I bought 2 further models from a private collector: A black BUICK Y-JOB 1938 and a black and gold GSX 1971. Both very cool 1:18 models... :wub:

 

...here some further Buicks on my list to buy:   (some are quite expensive! :blink:)
