Here's a couple new ones. The yellow/black coupe Impala and a Regal that is pretty close to the one I had back 20 years ago.

Oh my goodness.......................I WANT that one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love that color scheme.

And, maybe it's just the pic, but those headlights look like the Euro-looking ones of the '87 model Cutlass ... instead of the earlier 80s models.....

I saw the Buick Regal at the All-GM Nationals back in June, and wasn't impressed enough to shell out $5 for it. I did find it last week at the local Wal-Mart, but still not impressed enough for the $2.89 or $3.89 selling price there. I did find the Cutlass last night at Target, and they also had the '62 Corvair Monza in light blue. Maybe I'm getting older (or just don't have the cash to spend as freely!), but I haven't really been buying too many JL lately :unsure:

I'm addicted to die cast cars, got probably 4000 of them or so... a few hundred of just the 1:18.

It's the pic..it's listed on the packaging as an '84. I remember those cars from back in the day, but don't remember exactly the year-to-year grille changes, so '84 sounds ok. I think it's from the same tooling as the '83/84 Hurst Olds JL did a while back.

Good night shirt tail ... I haven't seen ANY of those Hurst Olds either....dangumit.

Now those in those pics look like the older grills....

As I recall, '87 and the RWD '88 models were the only Cutlasses to receive the tighter/Euro grill/headlight treatment....if that makes any sense....

Right.. I'm hoping JL does some more '80s Gs...they did a Monte SS years ago, but it wasn't that great (had a blower). Maybe they will tool up an MC Aerocoupe and GP 2+2...

I have a couple of those in different colors ... but, in some ways, I wish I didn't. I mean ... I like 'em, but it's not like you'd drive something like that daily ;). He he

Ohhh...that WOULD be nice!!!!!!
