PC: Re: (erielack) HO autos

To me these Tyco look better than the Eko, some of them are crude and a
little oversize, plus the dies are getting to be 40 years old now.   Plus
the Eko cars with US prototypes are primarily 1960-1964 era cars, where the
Tyco's will bring you up to 1967-68.

Anyone ever seen a couple of out-of-production Eko's?  I'd like to find the
58 Edsel convertible and maybe the '61 Caddy limo they did - I know the
Edsel was imported into the 70's by AHM but the limo had opening doors and
could be it's not been made in 35 years.
