Greenlight 1968 Chevrolet Impala

You either love this colour scheme or you hate it, but this Greenlight 1968 Chevy Impala fastback coupe is based on a real car that was auctioned off by Barrett Jackson.  It  has Woodstock and Vietnam graphics with  Jamaican colour inspiration. Greenlight got all the proportions right on this true 1:64 scale car as the long sleek lines are exquisite.  As with all Greenlights, this model is solid diecast in both body and chassis and rides on rubber tires with chrome steel rims.  Here's a link to the original vehicle auction details:

Greenlight at ToysRUs

I haven't seen any Greenlight diecast at my Toys R Us store in quite awhile and I was starting to worry that they might be discontinued the way all the Tomica stuff was.  So I was happy to find these on the shelves next to the Maisto/Jada display.  Looks like they brought out the GL Muscle Series 6 and the Road Racers series 3.  At $5.99 a car plus 13% tax, they are not cheap so I had to be selective about the ones I wanted.
 Anyways, you can see that the 1968 Plymouth GTX Hemi and the 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge came home with me from that series.  I also like the cool dio extras, but wish the pop machine was bigger.  Also picked up the tenth anniversary 1971 AMC Javelin from the Road Racers set.
