I love the gasser!

I love the colour of the five window, I've seen one in front of me & the colour is awesome!! I'm strictly a three window man though. I love those.

Lot s of sharp cars here but nothing really new, just repaints, man I am ready for some NEW models/molds from this company. Remember GMP had plans to do the 67 vette coupe as a masterpiece, that would have been in my collection. O well I guess these repaints are good for newer collectors and people who missed out on the first wave, but I just really try to avoid having so many copies of the same car. that color on the 5 window looks like something that should be on a lambo! definitely not for me, hope it looks better in person.

Agreed but ACME still being a new company need to start somewhere right?
I wasn't collecting in the early days of Lane/Exact Detail so I'm looking forward to these releases. With continued support they should start to venture into new tooling in the near future I would hope.

I've been lucky enough to get a few GMP/ACMES & love their craftsmanship & feel, any new ACME is a good thing for collectors old & new. Hopefully in time we'll get some previously undone classic muscle too.

I've wanted a good muscle car model in my collection for a long time now.
If they do a 67 shelby GT500 in a good colour, then I think that will be the one to get.
Red isn't a good colour for the mustang IMO

They did release the 67 Shelby in blue which I quite liked, I may have to try and find one to add. I agree the red didnt do it for me either

It was the same with AUTOart, that pale blue and red were the 2 worst colour choices ever.
If acme do a black, grey or navy blue then I'm interested.

Haha, I see what you did there ;) is that the actual name for it??
I like dark colours for the shelby tbh.
I'd no one produces one in a good colour then I may just get the shelby colletibles Eleanor.

Wow, nice to see a lot if interest in muscle.

I purchased the 5 window Ford. The color looks amazing and I am really excited about it. I also want to get a Chevelle, but not sure what color. The orange is eye candy, but the green looks so good.


Also, anyone do the Tom'S Garage deal thing? Is it worth the $15. In reality, $15 is not much, but just want an opinion.

Yeap I do the Tom's Garage membership. You get 4 $25.00 Gift Certificates,  and you can purchase the limited release Tom's Garage models. Of course the gift Certificates are only good if they release models that you're interested in. So far I've already used 2 of my certificates this year so it's saved me $35.00 off of two models ($50.00 in certificates - $15.00 membership fee).
