Those are very cool! Thumbs up I have two different Lagunas, a Monte Carlo, a 73 GTO, and two 73 Grand Ams in Johnny Lightning. The 73 Chevelle SS is a 1/64 slot car. The only larger scale plastic Grand Am model I can find is a 1/43 scale 74 model. I have a 1/24 scale Laguna race car model, but no street version.

i too have that chevelle. i dont think it has seen light of day for about 20 years. i have a grand am or GTO to somewhere,cant remember what color it is tho. JL also did the 76 cutlass. i have alot of different #2 dale cars too (just because they are the montes).

But did you know about the Grand am 1/32 from lindberg? it came out in 1996.

Yes, that's the one I have. I thought it was 1/43 scale, I didn't check the box first. And NO.. 77 Mali, they never made the SD-455 Grand Am, but it WAS in the write ups before the model year came out. What a tease! There is at least one guy who made one himself though.

Does anyone make a 73-77 Monte Carlo or Chevelle model that is Not a race car? I would like to find one to rob the interior bucket from, and build my Laguna model as a street version ...

Revell made a snap together 1/25. Don't know how long ago. I think you could make it stock or a low-rider 2-in-1 type of deal. Don't quote me.

Lindberg made a cross between a 73/74 monte in 1/32 scale.

Revell makes a 1/25 77 monte. It comes in blue, red, green. All released at different times.
