Cult Cars mostly, racers as well.

I basically collect anything I like  :wavetowel2:
Previously more into modern supercars and exotics, but recently I've been more captivated by classic cars by CMC as they offer fantastic detail and quality, and Exoto's XS line of F1 cars from what I'd call the golden era of formula racing. Still do collect AutoArt exotics, albeit at a slower pace than before.

A very specific set of random cars! In essence, the cars I'd like to fill my garage with if my bank balance had a few more zeros. Still interested (and seriously tempted by) most models though!

My vote went to modern street cars.

Used to be a pure BMW guy, but with the discovery of DX there's been Aston, Lotus, Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, Ford, Jeep, Chevy, Dodge, and even a 2CV added.
Looks like the most devastating blow to the wallet will come from the Bentley I am now crosseyed for.

I collect street cars only, at least for now.  I love racing, especially F1 and Le Mans, but I have neither the money nor the space to build an extensive collection of race cars.  I am primarily interested in European (especially German) cars from the 1950s through the present, American cars of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, and the occasional Japanese car (the Nissan GT-R is my favorite car made in Japan).

Recent Purchases:
GT Spirit F82 BMW M4 M Performance, Alpine White
BoS 1968 Ford Thunderbird Landau, Acapulco Blue

My 1:43 collection mainly consists of vintage racers, but I have a few modern-day racers mixed in with the rest of the herd. :occasion14:

1/18 - Ferraris (mostly red), Mercs (mostly black. If black is not available, then silver) and some random Supercars.
1/64 - Pretty much everything that has a decent paintjob and livery.
Collecting diecasts is like eating Pistachios. You can never stop after the 1st one :)

moderno street cars

"I have to admit I dont understand 1:43. 1:12 and larger I get, but most 1:43 I have seen (MOST) dont look like real cars. They are usually off in some way."

Mostly modern street cars (exotic/sports/GT), with a few classics in between.  I'll occasionally buy an outlier or three, like concepts or plain-body racers.

I used to collect anything & everything I thought was neat, but priorities, geographic uncertainty & a general lack of space kiboshed that long ago.
