Travel the GreenLight way, Get your kicks on 1:64 Route 66
GreenLight introduces a 15 case collector pack that features history and prestige in 1:64 scale
Indianapolis, IN (October 19, 2010) Pack your bags, GreenLight is taking collectors on a cross country road trip down the infamous Route 66 U.S.A. The 15 car set will be packaged in a display Collector case with a road map packaging that marks out the “Mother Road” as it journeys through each of the eight states from Chicago to L.A. The cars chosen for this highly collectible item all belong, like the route itself, to the Golden age of motoring.
Route 66 U.S.A was constructed many years before the superhighways of today, used as the primary means of travel for people motoring westward. It is a part of American motorist evolution and is as hard to define as it is to forget. The Route pulls its nostalgia from those travelers of yester-year that took to the pavement with a sense of adventure and GreenLight translates this period of history through a mix of retro and modern-day cars. Many of the cars also are first uses, the 1964 Chrysler Convertible, 1978 Plymouth Trail Duster, 1988 Ford Mustang GT Stock and 2011 Ford Shelby GT 500 Convertible all debut behind the first-ever 15 pack premier packaging.
The collector packaging highlights eight of the most popular sights and scenes on the west bound journey, from the Launch Pad in Illinois to the Cadillac Ranch in Texas to the Wigwan Hotel in California. The extraordinary and eccentric stops offered, affirm the saying that “it’s not the destination, but the journey”. These quirky stomping grounds acted as rest areas for the hungry and tired travelers, oasis’s of entertainment on the lengthy stretch of road, marking fun and unique memories of the highway that’s the best, Route 66.
