GreenLight’s New Product Theme is Front Cover News

1:64 ‘Zine Machine will feature vehicles off the front cover of your favorite automobile magazines

Indianapolis, IN (September 20, 2011) As a die cast manufacturer known for their authentic replication, GreenLight Collectibles takes pride in being 100% true to scale as well as accurate in all details.  Making sure that these fine and foremost features translate into 1:64th scale relies on a superior knowledge and appreciation of automobiles.

“You have to be a car guy in this industry”, said Russell Hughes; President of GreenLight, “Without the passion for automobile history and proficiency in car specifications you will not be able to span the difference from toy to credible automotive enthusiast collectible.”  The GreenLight staff ensures that they stay up to date with car trends through news sources and more specifically - magazines.   “Car magazines give a variety of opinions, from the engineer to critic to consumer,” mentions Kevin Davey, Founder of GreenLight, “Offering enthusiasts a reference to obscure information builds an overall essential resource for car guys who crave cold hard facts.”

With automobile knowledge as the foundation of GreenLight, the company has created an entire product theme under the GreenLight Entertainment Line that highlights this importance.  ‘Zine Machines will include six cars that have graced the cover of our favorite car magazines throughout the years.

1:64 'Zine Machines Series 1


  • 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle - Super Chevy (March 2009)
  • 1968 Chevrolet Corvette - Hot Rod Magazine (October 1967)

  • 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 - MotorTrend (May 2005)
  • 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 - Automobile Magazine (June 2005)

An extra set of licensing agreements had to be obtained for the ‘Zine Machines line-up.  Each magazine featured in Series 1 was pursued for the use of their title as well as the specific volume/issue.  The packaging for ‘Zine Machines will include an image of the actual magazine cover above the 1:64 replica of the featured automobile.

These 1:64 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, production serialized numbering and are officially licensed by their respective auto manufacturers and Entertainment Titles.
