I've actually had my eye out for one of the vermillion red LX's on ebay. I already own one, but trying to find a "cheap" one to customize. Paint it black, and find a set of 1:18 scale 2001 polished cobra wheels somewhere and make a mini version of my car. That would absolutely be worth it to me to do and probably the only one I would display. All the others I own are still in boxes carefully packed away. My kids would have a field day if they found those.

Just haven't seen one pop up at a good price yet. Unfortunately those ones have been climbing.

I made a replica of my old notch from a revell model. Just couldn’t find the correct pony wheels. I had to use the drag setup for the rear suspension to use the closest wheels that would match my car, or I would have had to use the 10 hole LX wheels. I think I posted a pic of this before. But here’s another one.

I know this is a GMP thread, but there's a guy on the FB groups who did a limited run of these. GT hatch and notchbscks in a few colors.

Search "greenlight l.b.e." On eBay.

Tell me about it. The variety of little ones has jumped the last few years. The above is a series of 15 cars I believe. I just got a red one, but that's likely the end unless....

Haha, exactly. It's bad enough (but good, certainly) that there are so many high-end 1:18s coming out from GMP and otherwise.

Last one for now. Grabbed one of the engines being offered.

Btw....price of Cobras has dropped, a lot. I saw a few teals sell in the $200 range. I'd imagine the fact that you can now preorder one for $135 might have something to do with it
