My holy grails for a very long time are the,

- 1/18 AUTOart Porsche 911 S 1967 (Silver)
- 1/18 Spark Porsche 911 R 1967

Cant find none :(
I've got those two (but my 911 S is Cream) I got that one on release. The 911 R was hard for me to find when I got mine, they just never come up for sale.

Good luck with the search.

Thanks.
Very jealous, especially on your Spark Porsche 911 R.
Perhaps you can make some pictures of the model? Love to see it.

They show up now and again on ebay, but they just cost alot! I remember seeing one at a local hobby shop for $100. I should have grabed it :mad2:  It was the full stake bed version.

Every time I look all I find is the 1940s version or the 1975 firetruck. I wouldn't find the stake bed truck if the stakes can be removed

Right now, I am on a quest for AUTOart 70907 1:18 Bugatti Veyron Production Version in Black Blue/Blue.

I might eventually settle for a Black/Red one, but I really want the Blue.

There was one on my local Craigslist last week!  It got snapped up by the time I saw the ad though...I've been looking to add a Veyron to my collection for a while now.

Yeah, I have wanted a Veyron for a long time. I got the Black/Orange Veyron SS, but the I think the standard Veyron looks better.

Right after I posted, I actually grabbed a Black/Red one from eBay for a fairly decent price.

I figure if I spot a Blue one later on, I can go ahead and just grab it too, and maybe sell the red one.

I too was on the hunt for a black/blue production Veyron but I gave up looking for one and was going to settle for the bleu centenaire,but then came the SS edition Merveilleux...wow what a beautiful piece of art
I haven't stop regretting giving up looking for the regular black/blue Veyron

Man and all I wanted was a killer bunny......maybe I should set my sights a bit higher...

Mmmm so grails grails grails.....well i could say the 22b is by far my biggest grail that I will hunt for but I'm sorry the prices are redonkulous right now. Even found a 22b listing that had Paul Walker on it... :dunno:  I had to write to the seller that there was no f'ing way Paul Walker drove a 22b in the franchise.

BUT my ultimate hunt will be for a paint rash free kyosho testarossa in red.....mmmmm tasty. Or I'll just settle and get a black one for cheaper! :twocents:

At least the black one will hide the (inevitable) rash better, right? :giggle:

Recently bought one of mine. An AutoArt DC5 Integra for £35, missing a wiper. Wrong colour as I wanted white or blue, but still looks ace in black.
