Id be tempted to do a roof swap, if the base of the pillars (where they meet the doors) are the same width and the distance between the doors is the same it will work if youre careful. Its all about seeing where they match up best and going for it. If you replace just the back end of the roof The red one has wide C pillars, so they'd have to go, then youd have to hide the line in the roof which can be difficult if the curve isnt the same. Id recommend buying a very fine saw to do it with, I havnt got one but its next on my list.
Saw a few matchbox in Tesco tonight, there was a collector in front of me filling his basket, got me this though...
No idea if its an old, or new casting though! Its going to get a re-paint and lose the roof rack I think
As for the late 60's galaxie wagon, I did think about trying to add the roof to the Galaxie, but the back wouldn't be long enough, so I'd be trying to add the rear wings also. Plus I didn't think just glueing the pillars would make for a very strong toy when it was done.
I was in poundland earlier and picked up a couple of Maisto toy cars...
An eighties Firebird, and...
Some sort of Baja Bug. The models themselves are a bit average, and with no interior like the Matchbox Super GT range of the late eighties early nineties. Infact I thought that they both looked a bit like old Matchbox castings. But what got me most of all was the atrocious wheels! I mean, even those really cheap non descript cars that most of the supermarkets stock as their own brand cars have better wheels than these!

Guaranteed the moment you complete your Blasphemi, a special licenced edition will be released.
I remember a few years back a friend of mine spent six months making a Mad Max Falcon, and for a 1:64 it was very detailed, and had a nose chop and all sorts of customer work and cutting and filling... and immediately, Hotwheels brought one out.
Bagged these 2 in B&M yesterday, I think I'm gonna call a halt on new ones now, it just seems to be colour variations on the same stuff now, or a fiver a car that's part of a set that theres 10 of, gets expensive quickly.
