I was having a look at "future releases" by Highway 61 over on scale 18 and I saw that they are planning to release a range of 1966 Pontiac GTOs!

Absolutely super news as the Welly and ERTL '66 GTOs I have are not the last word in 1:18th and I'd love to have a reasonably priced quality '66 GTO (and I think Highway 61 will offer just that).

Now all they have to do are the '68-69 GTOs and I will have a great selection of quality Goats to display alongside my GMP '70-'72 cars! :cheers

Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is pretty much the same.

Absolutely! I presume this must be a recent piece of news as I would guess a higher end '66 GTO (compared to the old ERTL and undersized Welly versions) would create a good deal of excitement among collectors of 60s US cars.

These along with the ERTL Authentics '68-'70 Charger line up should boost my American car collection nicely over the next 12 months I think! :cheers

Unfortunately not, scale 18 just had one photo of a 1:1 beside the listing for the cream/black car. So perhaps this model won't see the light of day until the end of this year or early in 2008? :confused
