Here the original :

It's not a very nice model, but it's rare, I think it will be sold at high price.

Here the description :


Quote

1:18 , PLUS A 1:64 SCALE ERTL DIECAST 2 CAR SET. BOTH ARE 1969 UNRESTORED DODGE DAYTONA. BOX HAS A LABEL THAT STATES "HOME OF THE UNRESTORED CARZ". VERY NICELY DONE COMBO AND LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE "JOE DIRT" CAR IN THE MOVIE. I WAS TOLD THAT ONLY 2 OF THESE WERE DONE, BUT I CAN'T VERIFY THIS AS THERE IS NO PAPERWORK WITH THE CAR. UNRESTORED CAR IN A NICE BOX WITH SOME SHELF WEAR. SEE SELLER'S OTHER ITEMS. WE BUY COLLECTIONS. WE DO COMBINED SHIPPING, ADDITIONAL $5 PER CAR IN USA. WE ACCEPT OTHER FORMS OF PAYMENT. SELLER DOES NOT PAY ANY DUTY, CUSTOMS OR FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL SALES.

Not an official release. This is a 1 of 2 custom by a modifier that does un-restored cars. It's not too bad, but I don't think it is worth the price paid, imho. I wonder if someone bought it because they think it is a super rare, must-have piece or they are a fan of the car itself?

I think a must-have if you're a moviecar fanatic, even when it ain't an official release.
Looks very cool with the 1:64 alongside.  :clap:
And you get to show off a very unique piece  :wavetowel2:

Wonder what was the original diecast(s) before the makeover ?

It looks well done but the driver-side door is not very subtle at all. Must have been bought by a fan of the show?

I'm guessing so too Justin. I have seen many customs of this car, some good, some terrible. This one is about in the middle. I'm guessing someone just took the silver "10 Fastest Mopars" version and made these customs. I was going to commission a certain "Scrapyard Gem" builder to build me one of his, the car looked great but he didn't deserve my business for many reasons. (No, it wasn't the price.) I've wanted to add this car to my Hollywood car collection for quite some time but it seems to be my white whale. Some day.

Compared to the "Junkyard Jewels" version, this one looks very crude. I wouldn't had paid more than what a regular Daytona goes for on Ebay.

As a huge Joe Dirt fan, I can easily say this is the one to have (surprised I haven't at least tried to get one already)...the other one looks like junk by comparison http://junkyardjewel...rt_build_5.html

lol beaten to the punch! :gaah:

Yeah, that's the one. I just didn't want to give the guy a mention or direct anyone to him. The car looks great, but the maker.....................................................

Well I'm a big moviecar fanatic but "Joe Dirt" .. no thank you!


To me this movie (and all movies from Saturday Night Live's cast of the 90's that are trying to get a movie career) are just pure crap :

Will Farell, David Spade, Tina Fey, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, Amy Poehler, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Chris Rock,  etc ...


It's sad because past has proven that SNL had great comedians that became huge comedy stars : Eddy Murphy, Bil Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal ...



There is one exception that emerge from the 90's and it's Adam Sandler, except for when he does a dumb character like : Waterboy - Little Nicky - Jack & Jill - You Don't Mess with the Zohan - etc!


When he plays in normal comedies, we like his movie very much :

Happy Gilmore - Big Daddy - Anger management - Click - 50 first dates - Wedding singer - The longest yard - I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry - Grown ups

It's a good link thanks Al, this one seem a lot better.

For Jeff, i'm not a fan of the movie, but this die cast was a very limited production, and movie cars are always research by many collectors, even when the movie is not good, like Speed Racer, or Animal House (It's a matter of taste of course), there always someone who look for,.

This Daytona as been sold yesterday for : $ 120.27 U.S.

I agree ... the rarety made me look into it and follow the auction but I decided to let it go!

It ended up on a fair price!

It's not a production car! It is a custom. It is no rarer than a 1 of 1 General Lee I decide to paint pink.

Sorry Motorhead but a pink General Lee would be pure crap!

But a custom made model can be worth much more then a production model .... if the model is famous and it "doesn't exist" in diecast, but it's gotta be well made, it can be more valuable on the market then a production car.



At a car show where we went to sale diecasts for my friend's diecast shop, he asked me to bring my movie customs to put on display is the glass counter ...

- I've been offered $750, $800, $1000 & $1200 for my Italian Job Mini trio

- $450 for my Saleen Barricade from Transformers with working siren and lights

- $400 for my Caddy CTS and Hummer from Bad Boys I & II

- $250 for my Christine's 68 Charger ...

- $200 for my CHiP's motorcycle duo



Believe me, even if it's not production, it can be way much more if they're great customs .. the fact that they're not in production, makes them even rare and $$$

Absolutely Jeff, I wasn't trying to say otherwise. What I was saying is that this statement:

was incorrect. This car is not a limited production, it is a custom and there is a difference. This custom has incorrect wheels and a crude paint job. It is not some rare, limited, production. No intention to say that customs aren't worth collecting or creating. I just don't like it when someone presents a custom as a limited piece and taking someone's wallet for a ride. I've noticed a few times that el docum has confused a custom for a limited production. All I was saying is that there is a difference between the two.

I made no statement about customs not being worth more than production cars. And yes, a pink General Lee would be ridiculous, that was the point.

Couldn't agree more. IMO dumb does not equal funny. I've never liked Sandler either - it's just foolishness and I hate that whole underbite routine of his. Since Eddie Murphy it's all been downhill for SNL. Pure crap now!

In that case I still have a doubt; the 1:64 scelled in the box, look like the 1:18, also unrestored cars from ERTL look not better then this one IMO. .
