Last two years I've got all grails except the one and the last - Exoto Le Mans winning Sauber C9. And for sure that is an aim #1 for an upcoming year.
Best regards, Evgeny.

not sure I have any particular one.... but I guess any GMP, Exoto (Or Biante now as well) serieal #0000, the *missing* Diecast number!  I guess pre-productions, samples, prototypes (I don't mean any race car without a race livery in white/black/red style prototype) and any 1 off never made it to market cars (cause of copyrights or lack of approval)

I guess right now, GMP's Pork Chop Plymouth Road Runner (the gray primered one), Scarelane Ford Fairlane (the red primered one) and AutoArt's 1973 Ford XB Falcon Mad Max 1 conversion (not the Road Warrior) with front bumper, badges on side, interior tweaks (which I can get if I had the money to buy a car/have a guy I know do the conversion)

If I could fill my cabinet with any 1/18 models regardless of price, I'd go with blue cars from different countries, racing series, body styles, and engine sizes, but all with opening details. I can fit 2 cars on each of my 6 shelves, and so this is what I'd get:

1971 Autoart Ford Falcon XY GTHO rothmans blue
1985 Biante Holden Commodore VK Brock SS blue

1967 Autoart Shelby Mustang GT500 blue
1999 Autoart Nissan Skyline R34 GTR V-Spec II bayside blue

2011 Autoart Porsche 911 997 GT3 4.0 blue
2010 Autoart Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 turquoise blue

2001 Autoart BMW M3 E46 laguna seca blue
2010 Minichamps Ford Focus RS blue (silver wheels)

1992 Exoto Williams FW14B Nigel Mansell
1998 Autoart Mercedes CLK GTR Original Teile  

1999 Autoart Subaru Impreza WRC Richard Burns Tour de Corse
2006 Carlectables Ford Falcon BA FPR Mark Winterbottom

I think this summarizes the whole of the model car community.

My Holy Grail at the moment would be the AutoArt P1, which is Really hard to get.  :rolleyes:

I'm sure it's out there somewhere Craig, might have to break into the AutoArt factory and steal it, but there is at least one pre-production model in there!

1. I dream of finding a diecast (not resin) Pagani Zonda C12 and Zonda F in 1:43, 1:24, 1:18 and 1:12 with good detail and at a price point that doesn't require me to part with an organ.

2. Exoto Chaparral 2D because it's pretty and a Chaparral. Special mention to the non-existing 1:18 Chaparral 2J, because the real machine is insane.

3. 1:18 Ferrari F40 and 288 GTO that are better than the Bburagos and cost under $80 each.

4. 1:18 Lamborghini Countach L400 or L500s Walter Wolfe at Sunstar or Welly prices. With a proper Porsche 934 Turbo and a Welly Diablo, my childhood would be complete.

Sadly, Exoto never released the Chaparral 2D either. And if you notice on their website, after the long-standing lawsuit against them by Chaparral, they have stopped labeling all their Chaparral models by name and just refer to them by their numbers (just like they did starting with the Ferrari Sharknose since they had no license to use the Ferrari name).

I would like to add an Exoto Alfa Romeo Alfetta to my collection. But the asking price is too high for my budget. In Australia $1300 plus shipping

I bought the Autoart D type a while back - but haven't opened it yet - just in case I work out how to justify paying the $1300 for the Exoto D type.

Recently managed to pick up a pretty mint AUTOart NSX in Formula red that I missed years ago when it was released.
Took me a while to find one at a decent price, was quite lucky that I found a somewhat local seller too.

Now, I need to find an AUTOart Zonda R Nurburgring and GMP P4 330 prototype in red.
Those will burn big holes when I find them though...
