Hi there!

I've found a store where I can order a Highway 61 1964 Buick Riviera in blue for $115 including shipping. Is this a reasonable price?
Forgive me, I'm Swedish.

Sounds pretty high to me.  I'd expect to pay between $55 - $70 tops.

Thanks for the answer. I guess we're being ripped off here in Sweden since this price is quite standard here, I was interested to see how the Swedish prices compared internationally.
Forgive me, I'm Swedish.

Have you tried looking at our sponsors or looking to get one from another country - like the US?  You may end up spending a little more on shipping, but may come out spending less overall.

The price you were quoted is a bit high, but at its regular price (plus a little extra for shipping to Sweden, of course) it is definitely worth the money.  I had a couple of Rivieras in my collection at one point, and I regret getting rid of them.  I'm going to add another one at some point in the future, although I'm trying to decide whether to get another 1964 model or wait for one of the 1963 Rivieras that Highway 61 will release later this year.

Haven't tried anything like that since I don't have PayPal or anything like that. I haven't even got a credit card.

Paypal is easy to use, I haven't had any problems with it.  You can link it to a bank account to access your money.

You can have my credit cards if you like.  However, they come max'd out!    :occasion14:

Thanks for the offer on the credit cards, I'll pass though. I know PayPal is very easy to use, the only reason I haven't got it is that it would probably ruin me even faster than I'm doing without it since it would mean a very easy access to not only diecast but also other stuff that I collect.
