This is just too cool.  I would love to have any Company like one of my trucks so much that they would choose to immortalize it.

Congrats!

Irish- the grille and front end matches my truck. As you guys know, my truck started life as a ‘77 but I updated it with the newer front end sheet metal. Greenlight has a 1991 Blazer model so the fit was seamless.......btw, just one or two? I ordered 4 cases (200). Hehe. You should be able to find them at Hobby Lobby when they are finally available.

JAH- thanks for the kind words. You may try contacting Greenlight. They are constantly pumping out various cars and trucks of every theme. Maybe CaptKaos could get them to do a series of member trucks from this forum. Hmmmmm.........


I also forgot to mention that the first round will be the 1/64 scale. Greenlight is also going to build our truck in 1/43, and a massive 1/18 scale. The 1/18 trucks are about a foot long.

I've personally seen this truck and it is impressive down to the wheel well opening moldings ;)... I want one when they come out.

You would be hard pressed to find sharper wheel opening moldings.

I think my trucks are probably more notable to me than to Greenlight.  ;D

That would be AWESOME. 8)
