Yup, still a great diecast from back in the day. And one of a few from the time where all 4 doors open. If I recall correctly, as mine is stored away now, it's the '96 version which used analog gauges and the floor shifter. Much nicer than the digital gauges and column shifter.
Unfortunately, all 4 doors don't open on the UT Impala SS models. Yours might be the Impala SS 510 Concept from AUTOart where all 4 doors open. That's a much rarer and pricier model these days.
Oddly enough, the rear doors on the UT models were a separate piece glued on, making me wonder if modding it to open might be a possibility.

Very nice add! I was always fascinated by Cunningham's attempt at Le Mans with the Corvettes and Cadillacs. Nice to see it replicated in 1:18.
Don't know if you are aware of this, but Replicarz has Cunningham's 1950 Le Mans entries, the Cadillac and Le Monstre, on its list of future releases. These still could be a couple of years away, but if you would be interested in them, feel free to let them know!

This I did not know. Le Monstre is a quirky racer. Wouldn't fit my collection, but still glad someone replicated it. I do like the the Series 61. Amazing how both finished the race! Thanks for sharing.

Best spec for the LaF IMO. (y)

About 2 weeks ago I saw BBR offering ~50 pieces on their homepage and felt really tempted.
At the end I remained only at the fence (because I have a FXX-K Evo with this colour scheme) and watched how they sold out within a few hours. Impressive to see!

In spite of the infuriating (and almost certainly avoidable) accuracy issues I had to get one because of the low price.
What is interesting about this model - and the Le Mans car which I didn't buy because I already have the very nice
TSM version is that the rear wing and engine cover are a separate piece held in by two screws....
I will be improving the seatbelts and doing something with the area between the headlights with some suitable mesh.
Solido.

It has been done in 1:43 pretty completely. There are always more needed but they have a good start.

Well, we've reached that era from when cars that I remember from my very early teen/college days (as a friend had a black one at CCS) are now considered vintage. This one just arrived from Japan.

Kyosho 2014 Audi A8L D4 facelift (in the US, we didn't get the facelift until MY2015). Long discontinued and I wanted black, so I was happy to get it for a reasonable price including shipping and tax from Japan. Got here astoundingly fast, it was just shipped on the 19th! Perfect condition except for some light paint rash on the doors and trunk, which I expected since I've read it's normal for Kyoshos of this vintage.

I finally received my CMC Ferrari 275 GTB/C race versions after preordering them in Jan. 2018 and Sept. 2021. Absolute gems.

And also these two AA. The Aston is superb, really well made. The LFA is closing a gap in my collection.
