This is a new model from Brooklin. It is a little to expensive for me, but it looks nice.

I saw this on ebay the other night. I think it is pretty cool. Brooklins is expensive but they are nice.

I'm with you Leonard. It is a pretty thing, but too dear for my budget. [:I]

Oh geez...it does indeed. What's the ka-ching? Around $120 like Brooklins have been lately?

I have three Brooklins from back in the day (mid-80s), when they were about $50 and that was pricey...back then I just went after whatever I liked the look of, and my three are two Buicks and a Tucker. There's a Brooklin 54 Conestoga at a local hobby shop now that calls my name louder each time I go in the place...$95. Also saw a lovely Brooklin 52 Starlight in the same antique market I picked some 1:24 stuff up in last weekend...$125. Yeowch...there was a 1:1 scale 52 on offer in that Wisconsin parts-car flock for that same amount...!

If anybody ever does the 62 Indy Lark pace car, in any scale, I'll probably plump for that, though, as a "mini-me" for my 1:1 Lark...:D

SteveT; Highway Travellers did the '62 Pace Car several years ago, in 1/43rd scale. A real nice redition. They were $150 when new. I think I just saw one go on ebay for the $250 range. A nice car. The new Brooklin is on ebay now for $104 plus postage. I think Dominion Models in VA sells them for $95 including postage. $100+ for a 'nice' diecast 1/43rd toy (Studebaker or whatever) is a good price. Remember, you gets what you pays for. Brooklins are heavy and very nicely done, worth the price.

One can make a 1962 Pace car using the Jo-Ann 1962 Lark convertible kit. Depending on your modeling skills the degree of detail will vary. I built one about 30 years ago. I have seen better examples than mine at model shows and on ebay.

I might consider a '35 Land Cruiser...

Concerning models. Why has no one produced a 1962-1964 Hawk. There are on of the most popular Stude models, and with much of the tooling already produced for the 1953-61 Coupes and Hawks, the cost should not be that much.

There are also no reasonably priced R- series trucks in the 1:24 to 1:48 scale. Ertel has the M-series in al sorts of configuration. Could the SDC approach some manufactures to see if they could make these.

P.S. Should also have mention models for my favourite truck. T-Cab.
