'73 Pontiac Bonneville RC

Recommended Posts

Not really a current GM merchandise, as I picked this up a couple years ago as a goof.

So, as I mentioned in another thread, I have a remote control 1973 Pontiac Bonneville coupe (for some reason I was thinking it was a Catalina before). I picked this up at either Target or Walmart because I would have considered the 1973 Bonneville to be about the LAST GM car ANYONE would make a toy out of. No offense to fans of the '73... its just not as iconic as, say, 50 or 70 other GM models.

Unfortunately, it is a donked remote with a wired remote control. Cheesy. It also has a crazy dragon sticker on the sides. The poor thing was all by itself, and I felt bad. Since its actually a reasonably detailed casting of the '73 Bonneville, I figured I could always make it into a curbside model if I came across a 1/16th scale fullsize chassis.

For now, it sits on my desk... right by my stuffed rat from Ikea.

Its from a company called Planet Toys... © 2006. I've seen very little about this on the internet... and the website seems to be gone, so it seems more and more unique all the time.

Radical, thanks for posting, SAmadei! Yes, it is reasonably detailed, and different.

"Donking" aside, that is actually pretty cool. I probably would've grabbed it, too, if I had spotted it lonesome in a store.... ;)
