    As you may or may not know I am a fan of Pontiac Safari wagons and am always looking to find more. Sadly the field is pretty limited to the Road Champs series which had basically just two different ones: an ivory and turquoise and a bronze and ivory model.There was also a 56 Safari that was offered in 1/64 and 1/18th scale by Muscle Machines in green and silver(1/64th scale)and blue and silver in 1/18th scale.I also found a resin cast 1/25th scale Safari but have no idea who made it.
    However I did manage to unearth two others; one that was yellow and black(not offered on the Safaris)and a special edition made for Rod & Custom magazine that was orange and metallic gray(!). I also found a gold one but it appears to have been a turquoise version that someone had re-painted.
    Does anyone know of or have seen other variations? Just curious. I wish someone would offer a 1957 Safari in 1/25th scale or larger. I had to sell my 1:1 scale 57 awhile back and really miss it. A model would help heal the wounds. Safari1.JPG Safari2.JPG Safari3.JPG Safari4.JPG Safari5.JPG

    Those are pretty nice examples. I know it's crummy when there aren't many options, but at least there are versions available. I've NEVER seen a 64 Plymouth wagon of any kind aside from the few resin kits available on ePay.
    I keep hoping that someone like Greenlight will introduce one someday, but they seem to have moved on past the 50's and 60's and are now focusing on late 70's and early 80's wagons.
    Oh well.
