New GN diecast

buickGN

As a designer for a toy company, I’m fortunate to attend the annual International Toy Fair in New York city. This toy industry trade show offers sneak peeks at upcoming products.

One product I noticed last weekend was a new 1:43 scaled Grand National in the Fast and Furious lineup by Greenlight collectibles. The rep allowed me to shoot a picture of the prototype for our club.

Greenlight is excited to do this diecast as they have had many requests for the GN. The scale will be about 4 inches long (larger than the 1:64 scale common to Hot Wheels)

Keep watching their web site for upcoming details on it at www.greenlighttoys.com

Turbo Buick radio options

With the current trend of keeping Turbo Buicks stock appearing or bone stock, a couple of options for upgrading the stock radio or installing a stock appearing, modern unit have surfaced. First, you can modify the stocker to add an input plug to play your ipod, the ‘do it yourself’ instructions are at the bottom of the page HERE.  The second option is to install an 80’s style retrosound stereo available HERE. As always, the club is not responsible for any products or services we make members aware of. We recommend you research any product or service to decide if it will be right for your setup.
