Collectibles line of replicas reveals more than the intricate detail
of the street machines and racing models we faithfully reproduce.
They show the love - almost a passion - for what we do. Yes, we get
How can this
happen? First of all, we all have a love of the automobile and racing,
which is a necessary ingredient for all that follows. As we research
the history of the various vintages of subject matter we produce,
we learn so much more than just about the machines. We learn about
the people that designed, constructed, drove, and supported the
programs. Adding even more intrigue is the business, politics, and
in some cases the egos that were woven throughout the process. This
is as true of the racing venues as the muscle cars themselves.
An element that
was present in the "good ole days" of automotive competition
was the camaraderie of the drivers and crews
if it exists today, is all but invisible. To hear the stories about
drivers traveling together from race to race and then fiercely competing
yet still remaining friends adds so much depth to this awesome era
of racing history.
As a result,
Peachstate Collectibles are inspired by more than research into
the car itself. They are not only about the men that drove and built
them but those that kept them running. They reflect the adventurous
spirit that fueled new developments and that showed up on the next
car at the next race. They capture the drive that constantly challenged
the rulebook to gain the smallest advantage. Our replicas attempt
to preserve the love, determination, and perseverance of everyone
involved from the corporate backers to the photographers that recorded
the history as it unfolded before them.
We try to portray
all of this in the detail and accuracy of the model as well as in
the packaging. We try to tell the story either in the decoration
of the box or on an insert so the collector can also enjoy all the
dimensions behind each replica. Our hope is that the history of
these various venues will somehow be preserved. I know many collectors
share this with their sons and daughters in hopes that other generations
will appreciate what these cars and the people behind them accomplished.
It is probably true these historic figures and legendary moments
will never be seen again.
Thank you for
your interest in Peachstate Collectibles and GMP. We hope you enjoy
the full measure of our products. We eagerly invite your feedback
to be sure we're pleasing the collector and not just blindly following
our personal love of the automobile.
