Steve (and anyone else interested), have you seen the '72 Sprint fastback diecast that Ertl has put out? Do you have it yet?

I just saw it in one of the catalogs from The Hamilton Collection that my mom gets (I see they're overpricing it though). Just a heads-up if you haven't seen it already.

Frank,
Is it the ETRL? You can find 1:18th Scale versions on the '72 Sprint Sportroff on E-bay for $24.95.

I just bought one.

Now, how do I modify it into a coupe?

I got it. It looks pretty good, with only a couple of inaccuracies. They did a good job reproducing the interior.

Great info on the Sprint Steve. Just may have to go out and get one.

Did great this past Sunday at an Auction with nothing but Die casts, models, friction cars and old pressed steel cars.

Picked up an ETRL 1:12th scale 64 1/2 mustang convertible for $10.00.

Also got two Mira 1:18th scale die casts. One fastback and a 64 1/2 Indy Pace Car Convertible that I didn't even know about. Also got a JouefEvolution '65 GT 350. The prices were very reasonable. I love AUCTIONS!!!

I'm getting a kick seeing it on my PC tower. It's starting to make me want to get going on mine. I having to start doing something with that this summer. I owe it to her.

It's starting to make me feel like I should go back to the original hood, too...

Cool deal Steve. Nothing like a little motivation, huh?

Yup, that's what I have in the winter. Little motivation.
