Yes, they all have the crotch cooler mark (even the '3Cool.

The only major difference (other than color) is the '46, it has a sunroof.

Got to give toy makers credit. Simply amazed at how little toy cars these days look more realistic compared to Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars were 30+ years ago. Smile

Those are well detailed.

So I took on of these and fooled around with my lenses and strobes and got this effect. I am a photographer so easy for me, but technically a hard shot. And the background is not in photoshop. I went to Crissy Feild near the bridge to get the shot. I put the toy bug on a mound of beach sand. Hope you like it as I plan to do a whole series of these in differnet areas, I will travel to including the bay area.

Very nice, I wish I had the photography skills and equipment.

The GL toys are nicely detailed for these kinds of shots, please share more.
