    Ron,
    You motivated me to look harder. Found a pretty nice one--red, not green, but I may be able to change that.

    Would definitely be interested in a green one, too, if you can find one!

    Would either of these be anything like you want? They are expensive as I gave around $170 for them several years ago and they have gone up a lot since but the detail is fantastic. On the 1962 one the motor has the hand painted 260-XP on the valve covers just like the test one had. These aren't the color that you want and I don't know if they still offer them but id they do they will be expensive.

    Ron,
    They're both really nice. I was really looking for a 427, but PM me if you're interested in parting with them.

    I also found these, which look really nice (and expensive), but they're a 289s as well...

    Nomad,

    That isn't a table. It is the end of my kitchen bar.

    Evan,

    I don't want to sell any of mine but I got those along with the set of 6 Daytona Coupes from Exoto. Fairfield Collectibles is al;so a good place to get die casts from as that is where I got the 58 and I have several of the other cars from them as their work is very good. I have about 100 cheaper models stored in the attic of the garage but keep the expensive ones in the house in their boxes as I don't have room to display them.

    Ron, does the bar come with booze? If so I may be interested.

    Isn't that an oxymoron?

    A few more of my better die cast models. The stainless Daytona Coupe was free because I collected the whole set of 6. These cars were each approved by Shelby and I could only get one every three months.



    Mustangs including the model of the one that Chris Edelbrock drove in the Trans Am Series.



    And my better die cast GT-40s

    Nomad,

    If I had room I have a lot more that are in boxes that I could display. No more than I drive any more I should sell the cars and use the garage as a place for my junk.
