Since DMs bold new offering of the 1967 Camaro in coupe form, I couldnt wait for the drop top version. We were treated, over the years; to many variants of the 1969 Camaro but the coupe was DMs first 67. In fact, it was the first such year Camaro for either mint. Were I to personally have picked the shade of the convertible, Id have picked this very color. Butternut Yellow is a pale muted shade between beige and sunflower. Contrasted with an unbelievably small twin pinstripe in black and black interior, also with a white pinstripe piping, the image is commanding. DM rounds out the ensemble with an up-top and boot in black. Thin whitewalls go along with the color flow.

Danbury has worked more than their usual magic on the sixty-seven. Detail and functionality sets a new standard for model craftsmanship here. In one relatively small package we have it all. You can show this diecast off to anyone with pride. Demonstrate its capabilities and you will receive the Ewws and ahhs it richly deserves from novice and established collector alike. First, do not overlook its dedication to the 1:1s shape and stance. The paint is typical DM perfect with scaled door handles, door lock buttons, delicate chrome wheel well opening trim pieces and chrome metal-foiled emblems and badgings all over. The fit of the doors, trunk, hood, boot and top is impeccable. The way they carried out the detailing of engine, chassis and interior is remarkably consistent with ever-growing attention to improvement.

Moving parts include sunvisors, slim antenna, the usual opening panels; door, hood and trunk but do not forget that the doors are on new-tech hinges, and the hood on the scissors springs that look more realistic than the real ones sometimes. The trunk is on better scaled hinges and exhibits simulated weather stripping, stickers and authentic floor matting, spare tire and jacking equipment. Even under the boot you will see the stereo speakers mounted on the fabric-lined top well. The seat belts and buckles are awesome. So are the dash, console and pedals. The aforementioned chassis is phenomenal. Metal lines, infinitely sized springs all help carry off a perfect miniature version of the rare RS/SS car itself. Just check out the incredible trans linkage and tiny spring on the clutch throw-out bearing assembly.

The best though, is the operation of the headlight door operation. They swivel inward, just like the real car, to reveal the headlamps. The engine bay is plenty persuasive enough to make a grown man cry. Just feel the under-hood liner. Then run your eyes down from the wired duty light to the massive 396 mill. You will note every conceivable wire, hose, electric cable and fuel line ever put together in a precision diecast in this or almost any other scale form. It is just mind boggling. DM continues to include fascinating detail to the underneath of the up-top and the material used on the balance of it is totally realistic looking and feeling. Danbury constantly gets better and better and this is an issue to prove that point; I love this model.
