    I just got this Classic Gold series '92 Cadillac Allante in Euro Red over black interior, and am quite impressed with the effort Tom Lowe and company have put into this old, dated casting to modernize it. Still not as good of accuracy as the Majorette casting, but this is still more than tolerable to me. (I *do* have the Zylmex logo for a profile pic...)

    The commercial for the 1/1 example is linked below, as well.

    Yes indeed! I always liked these cars for some weird reason.

        The Allante (along with the Buick Reatta) have been on my short list for a long time. Preferably the last year with the early NorthStar engine, '93 I think. One downside I hear often on fan sites is that the removeable roof is prone to leak. Living in Florida with lots of "liquid sunshine" that has been one thing to give me pause.
        The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

        Thank you for your understanding.

          Explains why so few Allantes and Reatta convertibles still exist in Oregon.

            I can't remember the last time I saw one of these on the road. Looks like JL did a great job.

              I picked up a white version of this one awhile back. Haven't set it free yet...
