My 1-24th Danbury Mint cars:

The "The California Kid" - 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe

Probably the best Danbury Mint 1:24th car ever made.

The "1933 Ford 3 Window Coupe"

The "1933 Ford Cabriolet"

Just got this one, again for the 6th and 7th time,

I will be selling off the one I do not want. These are prone to diecast rash and missing pinstripes.

Not one ebayer has been honest enough or knowledgeable enough to know what to look for.

UPDATED: Got it cleaned up.....First 4 photos are before and after shots.

"The 1933 - 1934 Ford Row".

The "Twister" Mustang.

My Uncle had the real car, this was the only reason I bought the diecast. That thing was raped ape fast...

The "Bullitt" Mustang.

The "Mc Mullen Roadster".

More detailed photos.....

(you can click on these, it opens in another window and then ZOOM in too!!)

You guys really need to get this car if you are on the fence about it.

The brake lines to the wheels is amazing!!!

The decals and gas line on the gas tank, the rear "Club Plate", the grille is so detailed, its photo etched to perfection!!

Sunshine photos with the "The California Kid"

(you can click on these, it opens in another window and then ZOOM in too!!)

This is another HOME RUN !!!! Thanks Danbury Mint !!!

I will be staring at this Mc Mullen Roadster for years to come.

It would have even been better to "clear coat" the flames as the The California Kids are done, But still its a nice Roadster.

This Mc Mullen Roadster rivals ANY 1:12th that Danbury Mint ever put out. Thats a 110% over the top coming from me.

I hope everyone enjoys the photo shoot.

By the way....

Did anyone ever notice that The California Kid's headlights are "wired" ???

Danbury Mint 1-24th 1959 Pontiac Bonneville

Danbury Mint 1-24th Dream Truck

1959 ? 1960 ? Chevrolet Tangerine - Flake Streamline Baby

I still have reservations about this one, door colors do not match the body, nor does the front grille and massive tail light do much for me, orange peel and pain rash issues, missing chrome strips, but it does sparkle.

I may ask for another.....

1958 Watson Thunderbird

This also had paint rash issues, but I have a replacement coming.

1957 Studebaker Custom

This came in with paint issues, bent grille, but its replacement was great.

Thats a keeper for sure.

I am glad I got one of these, it is one of those smaller scales that I rarely buy that you can look at and see something different every time.

1953 Buick Skylark Custom

This has TINY paint issues but I can live with it since they should polish out and it still needs cleaned up / detailed.

This is an instant classic and even the wife fell in love with it.

I tried to get her one but they are sold out.

I can see why. This one just POPS

1949 Lead Sled

This one is nice also but it had a huge scratch on the driver side rear fender. (replacement coming)

1957 Chrysler Custom 300C

This one came in perfect the first time, super sharp, front seats tilt forward even the gas cap door opens.

The speaker grille detail in the rear package shelf really is nice as is the door latch works too. CHRYSLER detail on the hood and the photo etched grille itself is great detailing.

1949 Mercury Surf Woody

I really really like this.

For as much as I like super deep, shiny car finishes, flame jobs, clear coats etc....

The flat blue paint, woody detailing, sliding windows, travel stickers, surf boards, flip flops, blankets, picnic bag / cooler, skateboard, fuel in the glass bowl on the carburetor..... wow.

This is another one that you can look at several times and notice something different.

Kookies Kar

I was able to get one of these from Danbury Mint themselves as a "Warehouse Find" on July 22nd, 2012

[black][b]1940 Ford Hot Rod

I was able to get one of these from Danbury Mint themselves as a "Warehouse Find" on July 22nd, 2012

Drivers door does not close worth a darn but this was the only one they had.

I may replace it later on.

My 1-24th Franklin Mint cars - The " John Dillinger - 1933 Ford Sedan"

My 1-24th Franklin Mint cars - 1933 Ford Tudor Police Car and trailer.

So.... the only one thing about this one that doesn't get me "right".

The grille looks like it is installed backwards. The photo etched grille looks as if it should be 'inside" or recessed in behind the grille shell /ring.

Anyway.... here it is:
