Take care,
I'll take some pictures of it... it's pretty amazing.

No springs, it's actual torsion bars, and you can see in that underside picture where the shock absorber tube allows for the compression.

This is probably the best video on YouTube showing all the CMC 901 features.

I came very close to buying one of those bad boys. Like you said, for the money they are amazing.

Excellent choice!

Cool

That 901 is an excellent candidate for "If I could only keep one" status.
I have looked at those and just couldn't bring myself to spend the money. I don't know why. They are certainly worth every penny.

Like the Exoto 935 Series cars. I had a white one with no livery markings. It sold for several hundred dollars a few years ago when I offered it up here on Rennlist. Certain livery's go for well over $1500 each.

I just discovered this thread. I almost never stray off the 996 board. I have a pretty good collection of Porsche diecast, all scales (and Pontiac GTO and Lamborghini). I will post some pictures,... eventually. I am pretty lazy these days. LOL

Are we also going to use this thread to offer items for sale to just the players here? I am getting ready to move on from some of my collection. I have several different 1/43 Porsche Collections (the boxed sets you see at the dealers). I was planning to put them back in their plastic containers and original boxes and offer them a set at a time. They are all in a fully enclosed clear plastic display case and in dust free area of my house (so no dust on the cars).

We're having a hard time getting this sub forum going but we are getting there. Post up whatever your selling!

I picked one of the dealer editions up last year and yes, it is a great piece that you can sit looking over for some time. A bit on the spendy side, but a nice piece none-the-less.

Very nice choice. Are the dealers selling the CMC version?

In the past couple of weeks I have picked-up two UT 993 GT1s, one UT 996 GT1, and one UT 993 GT2. I always told myself that 1/18 scale was to big so I stuck with 1/43. I have to stop before this 1/18 bug takes over.

It's a sickness!

There is an awesome shop in Lyon. I wish I would have known you were going. The owner is a real collector and will even open up his rare stuff once you get talking to him.

Enjoy Hershey!

I don't think so. Majorette made a Turbo in 1:25. Bburago, as noted, made a 924 Carrera GTR in 1:32 and 1:25 scale. Revell has made a 944 Turbo and a 944S kit in 1:24. The Turbo is a re-tool from the Hasewega 944 Turbo Cup, and the 944S is very rare. Minichamps made a 924 in 1:18, and Entex made a 924 kit in 1:16.

There are several more in 1:25 and smaller scales. The Matchbox 944 Turbo in ~1:64 scale is a nice piece, though they are no longer produced.

Wow. I was actually semi-joking when I asked if it had torsion bars, assuming there was a 99% chance it didn't. That's incredible. Now you need to change them out for stiffer ones!

I saw one for sale for only a hundred due to a scratched up hood. Someone got a deal, but I didn't need it. I wonder if CMC sells sets of those lugnuts though.

Also, I'm looking for a UT 1:18 993 Cabrio or Targa if anyone has one.

Take care!

I hit the motherload at Hershey, snagged 5 Autoart 911's for $5 and $10 bucks each! A hardcover Ferrari F40 book for $10, 4 996/911 Turbo RC cars that are simply amazing for $2.50 each. A bunch of Porsche Musuem 1:43 models for $20 each.

Take care,
I am not, you should have seen the mad dash. My wife and I bought all we could, and I left some behind and was regretting it later.

1:18 Autoart 996 GT3 in red
1:18 Autoart 996 Turb in silver, 1 in red. Both are impossible to find under $115anywhere.
1:18 996 Supercup cars-3 if I recall
1:18 Burago 996 Turbos in navy blue, maroon, black.

Guy had a boston hat on, yellow uhaul and tons of goodies. Really nice guy! Even gave my wife a mini Schucco mercedes for the hell of it.

One thing he did have which blew my mind but for $800 or so, were these huge 356's model in nice display cases. Im not an old school porsche fan and had no room in my 911 but they looked unreal! He said they were made my someone in France and it was so nice. Maybe next year.

Wow. Talk about a deal! 5 AA's for the price of, umm, half an AA!

Do you by chance have any UT 1:18 993 Cabrios or Targas?

Take care,

Here is my collection of Schuco Porsches. These were produced in the early to mid 70's and are little smaller than 1/64 scale. Made in West Germany. They made other German models also (which I have some of) like Mercedes, VW, Audi and BMW.
