    Looks like American Excellence now has the BoS (Best of Show) 1985 Custom Cruiser in stock in 1/18 scale. BoS is the same company that recently released 1/18 scale 71 Vista Cruiser and 62 Chrysler Town and Country wagons.

    That setting is excellent, makes the wagon look real, not model-sized.

    Pretty accurate model rendering, from what I can see - just sorta wished they had used a Pontiac......
    Pontiac had the lowest production by far though, so it's understandable.

    I have one and really like having it in my collection. I would love to see the Buick version from the same period with the aluminum rims. I had a fully loaded 1990 Estate in white and would love to have a model of it! Also I hope they get around to doing either the Country Squire or Colony Park from 1975-1978, even one from the 80's would be just fine. That would make me VERY happy! I'd like to see more of the clamshells to join the '74 Buick too. I really like the models BOS puts out, I just wish they would improve their quality control about 1000%
