'Murica Monday: A Pair of Anniversary Edition 'Vettes

A couple recent Greenlight finds here. A 25th anniversary C3 Corvette to celebrate 25 years of ‘Vettes and a Centennial C6 Corvette to commemorate Chevrolet’s 100th birthday. It’s not every day that you see a company make diecast models of very specific, special editions of real cars, so as a wannabe completist-in-the-making, I knew I had to grab these off the pegs. Also, these are two sparsely-used castings from GL, and both of them are actually firsts for me despite having been collecting the brand for quite a few years now.

Obviously, the C3 gets the shine here. It’s a far better casting than the C6, and the two-tone, black-on-silver with red accents makes this one a must-have. The C6, meanwhile, is a rather crude casting, with the wrong stance and numerous quality issues that are further exaggerated in these close-up photos. You really have to remind yourself that these cars are barely a couple inches long. I’m also not a fan of the color scheme in general, particularly the tacky-looking wheels.

Speaking of which, I really need to get on my 1/64 photography game, as it is seriously lagging behind those of the larger scale. I don’t know how many months it’s been since I last did something like this, but expect to see it happen more often from now on.

As is normal with Greenlights, hoods open on both cars to reveal some nice engine detail.
