Wow thanks for these gorgeous photos of these DM gems!!   IMO Both are up there with the finest in 1:24 diecast.  When I look back that these models were about $140-150+ towards the end and back then I thought “wow these are nice but quite costly”  I now realize for what we got it was a steal !!!!!!  Hindsight usually hurts and definitely does since our scale has dried up in “precision models”.

I have the convertible and it's a beauty. I'm kinda sorry now I didn't spring for the hardtop.

Excellent photos John!  I wish I had gotten the green hardtop as well...

I'm glad to say that I have all three of these beauties. I agree with Phil's thoughts completely.

Beautiful pics, Mr. Carnutz.  I have both of these.  I got the Biarritz from DM but passed on the Seville, which I ended up purchasing years later on that other auction site for significantly more than the issue price. Oh, well. Still worth it, imo.
