Thread: New HO US 1950's-60's Vehicles from Oxford Diecast for 2017

    Had another couple of vehicles show up last week. They did a really nice job on the La Salle. Like the lenses in the headlights. Growing up in the 50's, pre war vehicles were quite common to see. It would be nice to see more vehicles similar to this be produced. Also pick up the '53 Studebaker Champion up in red.

    Tried counting the hoard of vehicles I have collected over the years and lost count a few times at over 200. I would guess the total is around 250.

    Garry - Really looks good. Nice city scenes. Unfortunately I don't have any towns that large. I would love to build scenes like that. I don't know why I picked up a couple of those city buses. My towns aren't large enough to have bus service. Guess I could use than for flat car loads.

    Beautiful, GARRY!
    A fellow in my hometown had an Edsel just like that - same color!

    I always liked the Edsel, didn't understand why it was such a failure?

    Nice photos Garry. I wish that there was some way for me to model an urban area, but there aren't any out here. I have a couple of those old GMC busses, but the town on my layout aren't really large enough to have bus service. Guess I can use them as flat car loads.

    Looks like that DeSoto is trying to push it out in front of the Trolley. Hope he doesn't damage his priceless grille.

    I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    Oxford's California Highway Patrol 1955 Buick Police Special has reached Oxford's distribution center in UK from China. Won't be long now for it to reach these far flung shores. But it appears the searchlight and flashing red light mounted on the front fenders just ahead of the door are not in the Oxford photo.
