Perhaps if we start a string of what we want to see in 1:18 die-cast, one or more of the manufacturers just might make one or more of them.

Here is my wish list (at the moment):

1959 Aston Martin DBR LeMans

70's Ferrari 512S LeMans Racer (make both factory and private liveries)

89/90 Nissan R89 / 91 / 92 Endurance Racers

90 Jaguar XJR-12 Racers (including LeMans winner)

02 MG Lola LeMans Racer

02 Morgan Aero8 LeMans Racer

02/03 Panoz LMP1 Open Cockpit Endurance Racers (all liveries)

04 Ferrari 550 Endurance Racer

05 Panoz LeMans Racer

05 Aston Martin LeMans Racer

Where do I begin :giggle LOL,. Seriously though, I would like some companies to do the following cars. They are in NO particular order, except the first 3, I want them done first AND now!!!

1999 Lamborghini Diablo GT (My dream Lamborghini. I'm going to do a custom one-off from the AUTOart Diablo GTR VERY SOON)

1995/6 Ford Indigo Concept Car. (This concept looks soo cool)

BMW M1 Street car in red or white

1999 Lamborghini Diablo 6.0

Ferrari FXX (this is a track only Enzo based car that just became reality. 800 hp) Click on the link to read the article

Pagani Zonda Roadster

B Engineering Edonis (I hear it's coming from the same people who made the Lotec)

Koenigsegg CCR (same as above, Maxicar is making it)

Noble M12 (Maxicar, I believe, has this on there list also)

Vector W8 Twin Turbo in other colors (White, Silver, and Yellow would be great)

Vector AWX-3 coupe AND Roadster

Vector M12

MORE Vintage Ferrari's from Kyosho (a 275 GTB/4 & a 250 GT SWB would be great. I know Exoto is coming out with them, but I want affordable, not $250 :ranting )

More vintage Lamborghini's from Kyosho. (Islero, Jarama, Urraco, Jalpa, Silouette, and the LM002 truck)

Lamborghini Muira Roadster (the car is a one-off. Known as the ZN75 car. Kyosho should add this to their roster of Muiras they are doing)

AMG Hammer (the original AMG car. The red 300E sedan)

Vintage Maseratis (Bora and Merek)

Detomaso Mangusta

Bizzarinni 5300 GT

I can go on and on, but this should do for now, :giggle .

Ok, since we're in a modest mood... I only want *three* items:
1. ALL the Le Mans winners in 1/18 (that's about 50 so far unreleased models... plus all those already around which I can't afford, e.g. Exotos);
2. Money enough to buy them all;
3. Space enough to display them all (this includes cabinets, rooms to accomodate the cabinets... and of course a house big enough to accomodate those rooms... including a very spacious garage to store all those empty boxes!).
After buying all of these, yes: all F1 World Champs.
Exaggerated? Me??? :tongue Well, whishing is cheap!

I would like to have all of the Group C racers in 1:18 if at all possible. Not every single one of their configurations, but I think that one of each model isnt too much to ask for.

Cars like:

Peugeot 905 LM
Toyota 88CV
Nissan R92
Aston Martin AMR1

And any other Group C racers that I left off. :wink

Yeah. I think I have a bit of a "thing" for these cars.
I remember the first pic I saw of a 75 Lauda Ferrari as a small boy. Made me feel "funny". Wasn't until I got the same feeling seeing Debra Harry from Blondie a little while later that I realised why! :happy
