Is that 502 black w/ chrome rims? If so, it escaped my hands :( - would have bought it w/ the DCM but somebody beat me to it

Nice set of cars!

For some strange reason I really like that! Cool shot too.

I prefer lowered cars in real life but that lifted bubble looks kinda cool as a toy. Maybe it's all that shiny red paint!
Is that the RC one? Jada have been making some cool stuff. Their lowered bubbles are pretty sweet too.

I have the 94 Jon Moss concept Impala SS from Autoart too. Apart from the wheels it's pretty similar to those from UT posted above. Detail seems a little better and the rear doors etc open too. But it has 95-96 style mirrors and the newer sheet metal on the rear windows instead of the plastic quarter inserts. Is not really accurate but looks better than the 94 style IMO.

+1! Where?
You used to be able to get the stock looking ones by UT Models and the Autoart John Moss 510 concept at the Impala Superstore (Naisso) or at pretty much any store selling diecast cars. But I think they might be long gone. I got the stock UT SS model from a guy with one of those stalls selling diecast cars at the The Block (mall) in Orange CA. That was about 6 or 7 years ago.

Just did a quick google search for you, but according to this UT models is out of business...

You might get lucky and find a store with dead stock if you search around. I've seen them pop up on ebay from time to time, so that's probably the best place to look.

They also made a range of 9c1s. Prices seem pretty high on those last time I saw one. Close to $100

Well, I got each one at a different time and from different people wanting to get rid of, not stores because as far as I know UT is history.

This is the one I almost bought along w/ the DCM but somebody bought it first :mad:

Any idea why the DGGM is always in the middle?

They got the Flowmaster's and Caprice side mirrors too.


The rims def look small.. You have to lift it and install the 30s.

I'm the same way, I like them low. My buddy was a distributor for Jada - nuff said. :D That one is just a plain-jane 1/24 scale Bubble.
