the other day i was walking around in wally-world, i was right by the hotwheels bin and it hit me: "what if hotwheels made an escort?"

now, i know for the fanatics, you're all saying "yeah, they already did!"
well yeah, they did do the MK3 scort. but im talking about the american escort, either 2nd or 3rd gen.
i mean, why not? they did the focus, the old f-100, and other random cars we all drive like the civic and nissan z.

who here knows anything on how the hotwheels company works? (ie. licensing and costs of getting the escort put on their 1:64 scale assembly line.)

i guess im trying to ask how hard, how difficult, and how practical/impractical it is to get the scort on their line?
if not hotwheels, then matchbox, if not, then something like ertl who makes those plastic assembly models. that would be niiice... :D

Actually, the did make a 2nd gen Escort. As a matter of fact, I have one sitting on my monitor here at work. It's called "Escort Rally", it's gold with a wing and rally lights on the front, with 1996 stamped on the bottom. One day when I remember, I'll take a picture and post it on the site.

I'm thinking about taking the dremel to it and getting rid of at the very least the wing and repainting it someday.

Actually, I've got 3 of those, but they're not the American Escort. Those are the Euro version. Notice the bodywork on the fenders and quarter panels. Grille and headlamps are different as well.

I too have been looking for the American Escort GT 2nd gen but have come up empty-handed.

Found a pic...

I have that one too. It's in a bag over at PrimerGuru's place. If I remember correctly, it's worth $2. There's also a tinted window version that's worth $6. What? You're saying that those windows are tinted? :?

Nope. Those are black windows, you can't see through them. The tinted windows version you can see through. Good luck finding one. :wink:

I just like to pretend that it'a body kit. :wink:
