where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

I usually buy a die cast for every car ive ever owned, and now after getting rid of my 1994 Z28 / SS clone, I have no Die-cast for it , only been gone for 2 weeks but i think i would trade the vette back right this very second for it back .

back to the point.

Does anyone know where i can find a die cast of a Black 1/24 or 1/18 (1/24 prefered) 1994 Camaro Z28 and a 1996 | 7 Camaro SS.

I've been looking all over (even on ebay) and cant find them.

it doesnt need to be a 1994 persay, just a 1993-1997 Camaro Z28 and Camaro SS die cast.

Thanks alot

Stay away form the Welly brand, its garbage.
To answer your question though, you don't.

I've seen LS1s. The one I see most is the 35th SS.

Never seen a LT1 Camaro. I do have a 25th Anniversary Trans Am though; it's an Ertl 'American Muscle' series 1/18 car.

I know one company made a 1:18 scale 93-97 Camaro Vert, not sure about hardtop/t-top though.

I found all three of my 4th gens at fairs and car shows actually. I have a black 2002 SS, a white 2002 SS, and a blue 1995 Z-28. Also, one of my favorite sites is www.littledetroitcollectibles.com, I buy alot of my 1/18 scales from there.

I'll put a good word in at work to have us do a 4th Gen. I work at Jada Toys, so I hope you don't mind it being pretty custom. I'll make sure it looks cool though.

Re: where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

I've been looking for a plastic promo '94 Z28, but I don't think they made one in my color. All I found was teal and blue. Then I was looking for a Revell/Monogram build set, but the only '94 Z28s they offer were convertibles. And as far as diecast goes, I haven't seen any. So if anyone does find one, I'd be interested as well.

The only Camaro diecasts I have now are a 1/25 2002 35th Anniversary SS and a 1/18 2002 SS.

I always see the 35th anniversary cars, and I personally dont care for the looks of it. It just seems tacky to me.

Re: where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

Anyone who has 4th Gens that aren't the overproduced SS models, help me out. So far all I've found is a lowly detailed 4th Gen LT1, my color green. But it is a Vert. None of the sites listed above really have what I'm looking for.

Basically a nice 93-97, hard top or t-top, color doesn't really matter.

Thanks

I've also been looking for ANY 4th gen LT1 model that isn't a vert, but no luck.

Re: where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

I've got pretty much all of those.

I've got a Green promo car also, thats the first one I bought. 1994 year.

I won't sell any of them, but just to let you know they are out there. Just gotta be patient, i'm always looking.

Re: where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

Just checked, right off i've got a 1993 Camaro Johnny Lightening SS Camaro series, 1996 Camaro Racing Champions Mint Edition, non year specific 4th gen Racing Champions Hot Tracks Camaro, 1996 Racing Champions Mega Man X 4 Edition Camaro.

Those are all hard top, i've got a few more that are verts.

Re: where to get 4th gen die cast cars? :(

I know a guy that knows the guy that runs diecastmuscle.com.

I haven't looked, but they probably have LT1s.

EDIT: Sweet, they do.
