#24 1/24 Hot Hues Monte Carlo
This diecast features tons of details, literally everything work. The trunk opens to reveal fuel lines etc, while under the hood lurks a detailed engine with "chevrolet" valve covers, wirings, and braised hoses. The wheels turn, the undercarriage features just as much detail as the rest of the car, with coil springs and exhaust. Even the window gate is made of nylon mesh!!
This car itself was a limited Edition, with only a few thousand made, and is serialized. Although several hundred released were "autograph" cars, hand signed by Gordon, this car was signed by Chip Foose and is one-of-a-kind. Shortly after the "special paint scheme" line of cars were released, all bearing Foose'* cool new paint scheme, Foose autographed this one at a launch-party, and then donated (along with other memorabilia) for auction. It'* the only one like it signed by Chip.
I acquired this at a charity auction held shortly after. My winning bid was $350+. As a Bowtie/Foose fan, it has been one of the prized gems of my collection, which unfortunately I now need to thin out a bit.
Signed Gordon cars are a relatively common on ebay, and retail for anywhere from $200-300+, so this seems like a deal for a 1-of-a-kind piece
