Some really nice looking vehicles there shame i cant work in n scale anymore.

Maybe so, but modeling in larger scales (H0?) you have huge selection of vehicles available to you, with most of them being already assembled and decorated.  I suspect that many of the vehicles from Bryan exist in H0 scale.

Well, historically there have been many "body" manufacturers. When I was growing up the Bluebirds were rare, with the Thomas bodies being more common as well as Wayne.

Some history here:

Aye, correct.  I'm just more familiar with the BlueBird and now that you mention, Thomas.  So virtually any chassis could mount under any body style and not look out of place in front of Rasputen's school bus.

Rasputen-
How does one get your catalog and order from you?   I went through all 9 pages of discussion of your great vehicles and did not see a current catalog nor direct contact information.   I wanted to pass your work on to Bill Reid who is always looking for decent vintage vehicles for the Reid Brothers' Cumberland Valley Railroad which some of you got to see at the recent NSE Convention in Rosemont.
If you can send me a pm with the catalog and ordering data I will forward it to Bill.
Thanks,
Charlie Vlk

I talked to Bill at the NSE Chicago show, and sold him a few vehicles.  I hope to have an updated listing in the next few days, that will reflect the items seen at the show.  Thanks for helping, though!

Didn't realize that was you, bought all of your Chevy vans, and a couple of the generators, they should make nice flatbed loads.

Oh good!  And will you have any new vehicles?

Well, that's my goal, but first I have to make up for the sales at the NSE convention.

As seen at the Chicago NSE convention, I have five more vehicles available.  First, a 1951 Ford 4 door:



Next is this 1966-67 Ford Falcon 4 door:



Also available is a 1976-77 Chevrolet Vega:



Plus, a 1978-83 Chevrolet Malibu.  Sorry I didn't get the lighting very good in the image.
The front may seem a little washed out but it looks better in person.


... and lastly, a 1981-85 Plymouth Reliant 4 door:



As always, the flash has been removed from the windows for demonstration only.  The updated product listing is attached below.

Holy crap. The wagon version of that was my dad's car when I was a kid. Any chance we'll see those?

Any chance we'll see a Vega wagon and some Ford Pinto sedans and wagons?

Plymouth Reliant wagon - I doubt it.   I was lucky to find a model of the 4 door.

Pinto sedan - still working on it.  Lots of surgery on it to make an accurate starting point.

Pinto wagon, Vega wagon - I'm not sure if there is a decent model to start from.

A relatively rare prototype, a 1977 Pinto Cruising Wagon (a side paneled station wagon with portholes) was part of the Motor Max Fresh Cherries Die-Cast Replicas series.

Two other models from the Fresh Cherries line that you might consider are the 1974 AMC Gremlin and Pacer.

A 1972 Chevy Vega Wagon was offered as a part of the Johnny Lightning Classic Gold Collectibles series.
