I just ordered a 1/18 '69 Yenko Camaro in Hugger Orange from them, LE 1 of 504. Has anyone dealt with them?

Yes, I have had excellent dealings with them. The crew at Supercar Collectibles are absolutely top-grade, among the very best diecast dealers around and I would definitely recommend them.

I can only afford their stuff second-hand and their prices aren't good on Highway 61. That Yenko is killer.

They have always great for me.  I do not do a lot of business with them, but I have bought my fair share from them.  They have been great every time!!

I've never ordered from them cause their cost is never competitive but their stuff almost always appeals to me (all the '69 Camaros) and I appreciate that they have a very good reputation among their loyal customers. Posted Image

I tend to use them mainly for pre-orders which usually get free shipping. With that figured in, they are often the cheapest way to get a 'coming soon' release. Once the items are in stock, shipping costs kick in and the new items are then 'on par' with other sellers. After a few months, other sellers drop the pricing on these same cars where SC tends to keep it the same or even raise it (I suppose figuring few are left to be had and their most loyal base will buy there regardless, based on reputation...a fair enough assessment)...so their "best deals" are for the latest and greatest.

As with the eBay 'wholesalers' comparison to sponsor-grade sellers, the difference is rarely more than a couple of dollars. And that difference is often the difference between service...and something not even close.

That's the reason I chose SC too. They had Yenkos in every color under the sun and I was deciding between Hugger Orange, and Daytona Yellow. I didn't find the colors I wanted at Diecastfast, SimplyDiecast didn't have it at all, and Replicarz had it but not any cheaper and they're farther away from where I live.

Thanks for pointing these guys out to me   :icon_scratch:

EDIT: WHOA! $130 to ship 2 models to Australia?! Damn. That pink Chally was very tempting

Sounds like you need to find a Hwy 61 reseller in Australia!!!   :icon_scratch:   However, many of the cars for sale at Supercars are specially made for Supercars.  Distrubution to regular brick & mortar/e-tailers may be non-existent in these cases.

The going price of Highway 61's over here is AU$130 (about US$112) without the cost of postage, and most of the Hemi Cudas and Chally's aren't in nice, bright colours or the 1970 versions that I like the most.

In the future I'll be going to them when I want some old-school eye candy on my desk. I can't wait for my Yenko to arrive!

Oh, you're gonna love it, man. I have the yellow and blue Yenko as well as the white '69 Camaro ZL-1 with steelies. I look at them every day and love them as much today as then! Posted Image

Yeah, but we can all think of many, many reasons why it doesn't suck to be in Australia!! Posted Image

If I was alive in 1970 a ZL1 would be my dream car! I want the fastest most powerful baddest-assest Camaro ever on my shelf (or in my closet). I might get their black one with teh dog dish hubcaps later. Normally I'm not really into muscle cars, I'm much more into imports but I respect the classics and I want some to add a little variety.

Posted Image  LMAO Yeah, I've been looking at that black ZL-1 with dog-dish too since I have the white one but the price is scary high. I'm only going to get it if I find it at wholesale! I'll never pay $75 - $85 for any Highway 61 mode, Yenko, COPO or notl. Posted Image

I've never dealt with them directly, but I've got one of their customs: a '70 Cuda with a 472 Hemi and I LOVE it.

Update: I got the car today and there was a big scratch on the window sill and a chip on the front fender. I'll give SC the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to a defect. I'm going to return it, but yes it's an excellent model that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Don't worry Bigdeano, when it comes to Classic Carlectables :twocents:  and Biante  https://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1/public/style_emoticons/default/dizzy.gif diecast ... being in the Americas isn't ducky either ...

Oh yeah, I have experienced nothing but Good Luck with Supercars.  The whole team does their best for everyone.  Still know, that it is difficult to impossible to do 100% QC on every diecast they get from the Manufacturers.  Many of us would understandably frown on them taking the products out of sealed packaging to do so.

I have the guys at SC opening every box for me to give each car a thorough inspection prior to shipping (less often for AWs and always for H61s as they tend to vary wildly, even within the same darn release).
