I'm not sure how many of you collect diecast cars, but I just got back from a show and picked up a 1/24 diecast of the Cadillac Sixteen concept. This car is incredibly detailed, well worth the money. He also had very nice Impala models (1959, 1962 & 1964).
The company is West Coast Precision Diecast, website is:
www.wcpdi.com
The website shows most of the detail, wine glass on the functional rear console, accuratly detailed hinges supporting the gull wing hood showing the wonderfully detailed V-16 motor. Even the exhaust pipes are discolored in sections from the engine heat. Matching luggage on the sliding trunk tray, etc. The wheel center covers are magnetic and removable to remove the wheels and display the accurate detailed brakes. It all looks really stunning. If they ever make an XLR (I asked) I would buy several.

That is an awesome diecast!!!

Many of us have looked for good models of our XLRs. Many of us have the Hot Wheels 1:18 model (top down, hoo & doors open), bit it's not in the sme league as the one you've got of the Sixteen!

BTW, we got a chance to tour Katech Engineering (on our 2009 Woodward/Detroit trip), who actually helped make the engine for the Cadillac Sixteen. Ron had some great stories on how powerful it was and how much fun they had with it! :patriot: They had one of the WCPDI models of the Sixteen in their office.
