There are two for me.

No 2 on the list is a '68 or '69 Le Mans GT40 in 1/18. Exoto are making these though, so my wait is nearly over :-)

No 1 on the list though is the Minichamps RS200 from Rally Sweden in 1986. If anyone wants to swap one for a kidney, let me know. I've got two in reasonable condition and I can get more if you need them...

A lot of you guys should be able to find these on ebay.

It's just a question of fighting a horde of other collectors and paying and extortionate price.

My 'grail' is the GTOs...

'61 Ferrari 250GTO (Exoto)

'84 Ferrari 288GTO (Hot Wheels or Kyosho)

Both of these are still ETA TBD.

I received my second one (I want to do a Le Mans Version AS this one is from another race in Dijon) last week . It's a beautiful model with a lot of details . The 320 Rob Linchestein one is in order, and I'm waiting for the different 3.0 and 3.5 CSL livery that should be done by Minichamps

Mine would be a car that I only found out existed after hearing about it on these forums.  It is the 'alleged' 1:18 R34 GT-R Nur-spec in Jade Green, in a white foam box, and was apparently only given to Japanese Nissan dealers (I believe that it uses an AutoArt mould).  I need to know more about this car first however, as I have seen one small photo and no proper information.

The others are any 1:43 Ebbro R32 GT-R roadcars in any colour apart from Gun Grey and Dark Blue.  I have gotten better about the sleep thing with these latter ones, although they still haunt me.  So, if anyone has a collection of Ebbro R32 GT-R's to get rid of, I'll take the road cars, and by the sounds of it, Mike will take the race cars...

Since we share a first name, and also with Mr. Hall, I have to agree, my grail is Rattlesnake Raceway in Midland, Texas, and any car that this man was involved with:

I am still trying to find the UT Porsche 911 Turbo S in either Red or Yellow. Keeps eluding me on Ebay. I have a limit and will not cross it for a NIB version, so we'll see.

Also eagerly awaiting (but will not hold by breath until I see prototypes) of Exoto's

Ferrari 250 GT SWB
Ferrari 275 GTB/4
2005 Ford GT

So if anyone from Exoto is watching this board, please get rolling on the classic Ferrari line you have teased us with for over a year. You will sell ALOT of these to us on this site.

The last on is a custom Ferrari F50 GT1 from Cavallino Models. They are expecting some early next year.  :danbana

I would have to say the 54 Fangio Mercedes W196R by CMC; The BMW M1 (White with blue and red stripes) 1st in the series; the Exoto Sauber / Mercedes C9 # 62 ; and the 1976 Martini Porsche  935 # 40 by Exoto....

Others? The GMP IMSA Hotwheels Camaro # 1 (Jack Baldwin); PMA Porsche 917/30 Sunoco # 6 (Donohue);

HELP! I CAN'T STOP GRAILING!!!!!

At the moment.

Mazda RX8 in Red.
Porsche GT3 RS with Red stripe.
Ferrari 333SP

And a Exoto Mercades C9 which i have ordered as the #63 M.Thackwell Michelin car, but the online shop said they had run out so i had to go for the Silver #61 car, that was a month ago and the Bentley Speed 8 that i ordered at the same time is here, but not my C9.

Just 1 question.

:ranting WHY? :ranting
