A ten year wait
Back in 2013, Brooklin came out with a recolored Rambler wagon in Gotham gray and sierra peach. It was a striking combo (nicer than the first release IMHO) but I wasn’t into buying models just because of a color change - even if it was a wagon. Well, by the time I came around to really wanting it, it became increasingly hard to find, which made me want it even more.
Skip ahead to about a month ago and I see one come up for sale. The asking price wasn’t out of line, but that shipping from England was painfully steep. The seller went through a couple Buy It Now cycles with no takers so I reached out to see if we could strike a mutually beneficial deal. He knocked $20 off the price and I snapped it up. One more holy grail checked off the list!
Nice one ! It is great to finally have a long-desired replica, especially one so attractive as this Rambler wagon.
That smile says it all, Randy! Congrats!!

And a hearty congratulations from me too !
That's been on my radar for a long time. They're pretty pricey now. Congratulations on your find!
You have so many wagons in there, I had a hard time finding the new one! Congratulations!
Always nice to add a sought- after model to the collection.
That is gorgeous, congratulations on your long sought-after addition to your collection!
By coincidence, I just bought the two-tone blue one at a good price. Looking forward to receiving it soon.

Randy, that is great that you were able to go acquire the pearl of great price at a lower price! That Rambler in those colors is so ‘50’s. It’s a beautiful car. There is nothing quite like unboxing a Brooklin after a long search. Congratulations!
