Hi all! Just feel like doing a little survey on what types of diecasts DOMINATE your collection, since this have not already been done! Personally, i collect only modern road cars with the exception of a few racers.  :cheers

Hope you don't mind but I added an extra category to the poll, "all of the above". That is the only one that fits my collection! Essentially if it is a good 1:18th model, I'm potentially interested in it, street/race/farm/classic/modern, the lot! :cheers

My case too. As long as the model has (or will have in the future) an historical significance I may be interested.

I don't know what to chose.
I collect Porsches Racers from the beginning of the brand in competition to nowadays and street versions of the 911.
So it is Classic and Modern racers and Classic and Modern Street.

So it would be "all of the above" but only for PORSCHE

I think the vast majority of us collect all of the above. When I first started, my primary interest was classic sports cars and I had very little interest in racers or modern cars. While modern cars still don't often interest me, in the last few years most of my acquisitions have been road racing cars from 1950 through 1980. Now, the more history I learn, the more i collect,  to the point that probably 75% of what I get now are old racers. :cheers

I just collect anything I like  :giggle
From modern road cars and race cars to muscle cars and trucks. Some areas are larger than others though. Like I have a LOT of sports/supercars. I really need to work on my trucks, muscle cars, and race cars (mainly GT cars).

I'm pretty much only modern racers.  More speicifcally, my focus is on endurace race cars (e.g. Le Mans, ALMS, LMES) and have picked up the odd F1, rally and race bike.

Almost "All of the Above". Mostly into:

                                                        G-Machines (Modified muclecars from GMP)

                                                        Movie/TV Cars

                                                        Plain Body Streetcars (AutoArt)

I'd collect a hell of a lot more if the money was there. But with cost of Diecast these days, I've gotta be very selective about what i want.

I'll buy whatever suits my interest at the moment, but I also go out of my way to collect Porsche. I also go out of my way to avoid models with dog legs. Just a pet peeve. Sometimes I cant avoid it however.

As of now I am collecting some classic racers, but I am in the hunt for some classic exotics as well. There are only a few modern cars I am interested in, and they can wait.

2. Pro Stock (around 15 %)

3. Street Rod (around 15 %)

I treat it as I would if i had millions of dollars and could collect the ac tual cars.  I love 69-71 muscle but I have my eye on a 1990 Ferrari Testarossa (sorry if I splelled that wrong it's midnight) as well as a white 1987 buick grand national from GMP.  No ryhme or reason I like almost all of them.

The only thing I can't see myself owning are the real early classics ,19 30's-40's.
