OTOH, - ANOTHER - '57 Chevy?
That said, I'd swear that somebody does make a resin sedan body. I just
don't pay much attention to cars I'm not interested in. A good place to
check would be Resin Realm on the 'net.

IIRC someone on Hobby Heaven's MB posted some pics of what they did with the roof from the Revell Del Ray and a '57 to get a 210.

That's a new one to me but I'm not a follower of metal cars. Odd that no one at HH mentioned it yet. I guess the '50 Studebaker debacle has everybody worn out. Don't ask.

When it was first announced last fall, no one could answer me if it was a DC or not. I had to wait and see it on a shelf. I don't think Tom had it in his 'Soon' list. Since I don't see a 'Future release' section on RC2's site, I check through GM's, Steven's and GreatPlain's data base for kits that have a TBA or something similar in the price catagory. That is how I found out about the Revel '58 Impala as well as all the other AMT things Tom wouldn't let on about :-)

Sure, like '69 Barracuda, two '32 5 window ford coups; AMT and MPC switcher, '05 (IIRC) Bentley and one that didn't make it-- ?year Caddy. Plus AMT/Model King specials. Some are available now, MK stuff is on Hobby Heaven's inventory list.

Oh, OK. I thought something else had slipped by me. I'm waiting for the '64 Comets from MK, already grabbed a HUG.
