Good production version of the GT.  Front hatch opens, unlike in the Beanstalk concept 1/18th.  These things roll, but the front wheels don't steer.  Closer to 1:22 scale rather than the stated 1:24.

Silver and black versions of the Cobra are pretty impressive also.  But the blue was too nice to pass up.  At this price, I'd almost get a different one every year...

Nice!

I haven't paid close attention to Jada's latest release after my long awaited Magnum came out, but it looks like they have alot of stuff comming out.

Love the blue!

:cheers

I saw the Cobra on Ebay just last night and thought it was quite nicely done .

If they did that in 1:18 Id have one in an instant .

Congrats on adding those 2 :cheers

Thanks, everyone.
Got the GT's about 6 months ago and the Cobra about 2 weeks ago.  GT's are pretty hard to find; I haven't seen any at Targets in the past 3 months, and they used to stock 5-6 at a time back when I bought mine.  Cobras are still out there, but supply is tapering off.  Better luck at Target than at Walmart (where I haven't seen any of these, but you never know).

Reason why 1:43 scale cars aren't that popular because most people including me(sorry it I offend) consider them toys and not Collectable model cars. .

Should you collect 1:43?

In my opinion, no if you can afford 1:18 models. First of all, most people will think of them as toys, while 1:18 models can look as something classy if you have a few.

Nice models Guibo! I've always liked the Ford GT, though i wish they came in 1:18 scale. Haven't seen the Cobra before, looks great i reckon.

Holy thread revival batman! And Id have to wholeheartedly disagree on the chevy thing, both have their perks but by no means is one leaps and bounds better than the other

I personally think Jada does a great job at production of there 1:24th cars. I just sold 15 Jada vehicles and I loved them very much as they were the first Diecast in 20 years when I got back into the Diecast collecting world. The Mustangs were very nice. Jada actually has a couple 1:18th scale cars they do put out. May be something to look into if your looking for a quick fix. But the price you can actually get an Ertl or Welly some others as well for the same price.....Thanks for sharing.
