Many cars would look nice in my 1:18 collection,
I would mostly like a Lancia 037 Stradale, a  Lancia δ S4 martini, a Peugeot 106 rallye 1.6, an austin metro 6 GrB and a ferrari 308 rallye tour de corse. I prefer kyosho to make them, already has the molds for 037 and 308...

I'd like to see the '61 Dodge Polara released in 1/18 diecast.  This is mainly for sentimental reasons, my dad had one, a metalic copper colour,  in which we vacationed down to the U.S. east coast one summer to Plymouth, Maine.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Oh yes! :cheers  I'd love to see one of those too! Mopars from 1960, 1961 and 1962 were really wild looking cars. I think that they were not beautiful, but they were quite unique! I love them! However, the pictures that you show are those of the 1961 Dart. The Polara had even wilder looking reverse-slant fins with weird but great looking tail lights! Sorry, but I didn't find better photos.

I think you went to the same website as I did.  I see what you mean about the fins. The Polara has a lower, wide sweep to them.  I have been so 'enamoured' by the style of the '61 Dart and the Polara that I bought an original dealership booklet that I found on eBay.  It's a nostagia thing for me and since I couldn't find a diecast I bought the booklet.  $15US plus shipping but it was worth it.  Somebody was selling a 1/24 scale plastic model in poor condition for something like $50US but it wasn't worth it.

I'll second a few of these submissions (Maserati Merak (and/or Bora), Jensen Interceptor, Aston Martin V8 Vantage (or even just a regular V8), and the Dodge Polara (one cool looking car)).

Now for some of my own...

Driving an automatic and thinking you're a skilled driver is like playing Guitar Hero and thinking you can play guitar.

Serious collectors don't buy budget models? Hahahaha...that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard

Must say that AR have mostly pioneered their own shapes and forms and it's always refreshing to see an old school designer sticking to their guns.
This car was streets ahead of its time.
These are what I'd love to see in scale (1:18 of course  :giggle ) ! Pioneer cars.
And, Mox, all those Lambos would be most welcome !!

Love that Jarama and those two Alfas posted above.   Here's my favorite Alfa (a Tipo 33 Stradale).  I have an unbuilt plastic model in 1/16th scale but would prefer a 1/18th diecast.

I'd also like to see the Alfa GTV-6 in 1/18th since I own a 1:1 (photo in Avatar).

Unfortunately, Solido and Norev aren't imported to North America. Your only choices are to buy one from Europe or get one from ebay.

I purchased a Porsche 997 from a dealer down in the States on eBay.  Thats' about the only place I've seen any Norev models available.  You would probably have to do a search for dealers that sell the full size model you're looking for and maybe they might stock them in their accessories stores.  Solido seems to be mostly in Germany according to any ebay listings for their models.
