I suggest to add "Race Car" in your choice, for me F1 and Nascar die casts are not interesting.

Even there's several there that I don't like, it was still an easy decision - SUVs.

SUVs for me - though that could change if a decent LM002, or Techart / Gemballa Cayenne is released.

I agree, allow votes for multiples. If a voter has zero interest in three categories, it isn't accurate to say he has the least interest in any single one.

Hmm. I've got models I love in every one of those categories.   :10:

I like older Japanese tuners (Trueno, KPGC-10 and -110 Skylines, Datsun 240Z) but have zero interest in the new wing'd and vinyl'd madness. Drifting is only a sport when you use it in rally.   :wavetowel2:

I'm picky with muscle cars; and I have about as many as I'd ever care to buy. The future may hold an El Camino; but the Chevelle is one of my least favorite cars of all time.

Race cars are probably of least interest to me, then (given the options). If I like the car, I'd rather find it without a livery; but my Pink Pig and liveried rally cars are some of my favorites. 911s in race colors rarely elicit even a half-hearted "meh" from me.

Having recently sold my Sunstar '56 Lincoln; my least favorite category ever would be '50s American Iron.

Okay, done! If you want to revote, just delete your vote and try again.

Personally, the only ones I have virtually zero interest in are tuners and luxury cars. I like Land Rovers and Mercedes G-Class SUVs in diecast.

Are we talking 1:1 or in scale?

Either way, I'd have to say that Ricers are my least favorite.

Great! Now I was able to spread the (lack of love) around. Voted against Muscle, Ricers, SUVs, and Luxury -- zero interest in any of them, except insofar as there might be neat touches of the modeler's craft on them.

I own a 1:18 1948 Chrysler Town & Country because my grandfather had a few of the 1:1s. Not really a muscle car, though the straight-8 was powerful for its day. Need a category for pre-1960 American iron?

As I've said elsewhere, all road cars period dón't really hold too much interest to me. A model of some characterless, storyless car rarely makes it into my collection. But that's my 0.02   :10:  So I voted against all but racers   :wavetowel2: If I had to wittle it down though, Luxo barges and SUV's would be the least interesting.

Though there will always be models in each sector which interest me.

Thanks for the clarification, Justin!  Either way, Ricers are at the bottom of my diecast totem pole!

I think that if we started listed every possible category of automobiles, the list would be a mile long.  Pre 1960 American Iron is kinda vague.  Would be better to go: American Iron Pre-WWI, American Iron WWI - Pre-WWII, American Iron WWII - 1960; American Iron 1961 - 1975, Muscle Cars 1961-1975, American Aluminum Foil 1975 - 1990, American Iron 1990 - 2005, American Muscle Cars 2005 - present.  See what I mean?  Don't even start on sedans, pickups, vans, compact cars, etc...

The breakdown was pretty good, included lots of difference in dynamics.  

Not to split hairs, but how can someone select what they like least when they select more than one?  Which one is the one they like least???

Yea. I actually think that multiple choice won't tell us which is the LEAST favourite. I mean if I can pick multiple, it would be luxury cars, SUVs and muscle cars but there are cars that I like in each of the category. So in the end, I ended up with SUV's because...out of the three, I care least for SUVs.

Sean, if I have 100% aversion toward three different categories, then I like them all "least". They're tied for last in my affections, and I would never buy a model of any of them. But of course, the poll's construction is always going to influence results. Justin was just irked that "Muscle cars" and "Mustangs" did so poorly in the other poll, so he constructed this one to disprove its results.

Of course SUVs will lose. There's a reason why there are so few diecasts made of them.

I think it's interesting that Amalgam, BBR, MR Models, and other really expensive modelers all make supercars and little else. Who makes $500 models of Chevelles and El Caminos? I wonder why...

Matt, I think it's safe to say demographics and what alternatives are available have more to do with that than popularity. When you're talking about a limited run of a few thousand pieces, the hard part isn't finding that many people who want the model, it's finding that many who are willing to spend $500 for one. I can sort of understand a collector who says "Well, it costs three times as much as I usually pay, but it's twice as good, so maybe I'll buy one". On the other hand, a guy who says "Well, it costs ten times as much as I usually pay, but it's twice as good, so maybe I'll buy one"? Hmmm...

I guess some of us are just blessed that we're car fans as opposed to supercar fans. We don't have to spend insane money for models we have to have because if the model isn't worth the price, there's always another one out there that is. And we don't have to go on crusades to try to convince everyone that anything we don't like is crap, and anyone who collects the crap is wrong, and even though they're getting much better value when they buy that crap, it's not really better value because what they're buying is crap and always will be. Sorry, but I'm just getting really tired of this "supercars are all that matter" BS.

The definition of "popular" must greatly differ when taught at Ivy-league institutions than State Colleges!   :wavetowel2:
25 $500 models makes a diecast "popular"   :10: Highway 61 has made 46 versions  of the '69 Camaro (many are open runs) and Ertl/Johnny Lightning made over 110 versions of theirs, some being 1/20,000 releases. To finish out the Camaros, there are 53 versions of the '67s and 77 versions of the '68!
There are 87 different releases of the 1970 Chevelle, 153 releases of the '70/71 Cuda, 113 releases of the '70/'71 Challenger...there are 216 releases of the '64.5-'66 Mustang...
