Let's say there's a ridiculously unfair law strangely directed at us that governs to have no more than 15 models and that the rest would have to my sacrificed due to metallic sources outtage (please bear with me!). :giggle

So which ones would you choose?


Here's my list (in no particular order):

1. UT McLaren F1 LM
2. UT McLaren F1 GTR #59
3. UT McLaren F1
4. UT Porsche 911 Turbo S
5. Kyosho Daytona Competizione #64
6. AUTOart 917K #23
7. AUTOart Toyota GT-One #3
8. AUTOart Subaru WRX STi
9. Exoto Sauber C9
10.UT BMW M3 GT3 PTG Racing
11.Kyosho BMW M3
12.Minichamps BMW M3 GTR
13.AUTOart M-B CLK-LM #2
14.UT BMW M3 Coupe (estoril blue)
15.AUTOart Mitsubishi EVO VII*

*#15 was the hardest as it beat out a Sebring Viper GTS-R, orange Lambo GTR, blue R34 Skyline, TRG GT3-RS and UT Mercedes DTM

Well, I'd have to put aside the special cars in my Peter Brock collection...
1. Biante 1969 Brock/West Holden Monaro 350 (first Bathurst race)
2. Biante 1972 Brock Holden Torana LJ XU-1 (first Bathurst win)
3. Biante 1977 Brock/Brock Holden Torana A9X (great colour scheme)
4. Biante 1978 Brock/Richards Holden Torana A9X (Bathurst winner)
5. Biante 1996 Brock/Mezera Holden Commodore VR (best livery on an Australian car ever)
6. Biante 2004 Brock/Plato Holden Commodore VY (last Bathurst race)

...and then some Bathurst winners...
7. Biante 1989 Johnson/Bowe Ford Sierra RS500 (great looking machine)
8. Biante 1996 Lowndes/Murphy Holden Commodore VR (youngest ever winner)
9. Biante 2003 Murphy/Kelly Holden Commodore VY (dominated the whole race)

...a couple more Bathurst cars that didn't win, but look great...
10. Biante 1984 Johnson/French Ford Falcon XE (mean looking race car)
11. Biante 1978 Moffat/Ickx Ford Falcon XC Cobra (classic blue/white stripes)

...something from Le Mans...
12. UT 1997 Raphanel/Gounon/Olofsson McLaren F1 GTR Longtail (first Le Mans car in my collection)
...a splash of Vorsprung Durch Technik...
13. Minichamps 1991 H-J Stuck Audi Quattro V8 (aggressive looking and successful)
...a wild paintscheme...
14. UT 1996 Alexander Wurz Opel Calibra (obvious reasons)
...and finally, probably the best made car in my collection...
15. Classic Carlectables 1972 Leo Geoghegan Chrysler Charger E49 (brilliant looking car and furious detail to boot)

Hmmm....too much thought went into this... :giggle

I reserve the right to change my mind tomorrow...
