Well, if you're going to suggest those two, and I fully agree with you, then obviously a spot must be made for the King!
Ah, the King Cobra! Ford's answer to the Datsun 240Z! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

I think the chances of that being made in 1:18 are just as thin as the chances the 1:1 had of going into production in 1970... it would be kinda cool in 1:18, though.

1988 Cadillac Voyage Concept. There's a Micro Machines toy of this, but it looks like garbage.

1987 Lamborghini Portofino Concept. I would really like this with fully opening doors.

91-92 Chevrolet Caprice. I love the rear wheel well design. If it existed, I wouldn't have to customize a UT Models Caprice.

95-96 Cadillac Fleetwood VINYL DELETE. I know Xiaoguang makes a 93-94 diecast and VAV makes a resin, but I prefer 95-96 mirrors and no vinyl top.

Pretty obscure picks, so I won't hold my breath. :cry:

I see you like boats. I too appreciate a good gigantic sedan.
Sure do, to the point of obsession. Hope to have a real one someday.

A couple I forgot:

2017 BMW Alpina B7. There's a base model one, but the Alpina wheels and body kit looks soooo nice.

2021 Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition. Must have fully functioning doors, of course. I know Chinese like making these kinds of models and they've got a normal Conti, but coach doors is so much cooler.

A few more forgotten/forgettable old regular cars. I could maybe see BoS making some of these as they sometimes have unusual subject vehicles.

First-gen (1986-91) Mercury Sable LS. This was my absolute favorite car as a small child growing up in a world of 80s boxes. When I turned 16, I hunted for, and found, a fairly decent shape old '86 Mercury Sable LS fully loaded with every option. Happiest day of my life, to get a dream car at 16. I loved that car soooo much, but after owning it 1-1/2 years, I broadsided a Mazda Protege, totaling it. I vowed to replace it with another, but never managed to find one and lost interest in midsize and FWD vehicles as an adult. I would love a model of one as a tribute to my first car. The pic is not mine, mine was blue, but this is the best recent-ish pic I've found of one that isn't beat.

1992-95 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi - I've always found the "storm trooper" looking Bonnevilles to be an attractive head-turner. I always prefer black cars, but this one I just might prefer white.

2003 Pontiac Bonneville GXP Concept - Similar to the production car, but the 19" wheels and lowered stance on the concept look better than the production height and 18" size.

1995-99 Oldsmobile Aurora (first generation). This was what I thought "cars of the future" would look like as a child.

I liked the first gen Buick Park Avenue, but for some reason the 2nd gen really appeals to me when I see one on the road.

Oldsmobile Ninety Eight - I've always had a thing for "modern" sedans with that classic bit of rear skirt.

Pre-refresh (1995-97) 9th gen Lincoln Continental. Loved the low nose, long sleek looking body, and full-width taillight.

Mercedes V221 (long-wheelbase). AUTOart used to make a short-wheelbase. I thought the SWB is kind of ugly and cartoonish in proportions, but in contrast, the LWB looks beautiful and is my favorite S-class of all time. Really quite surprised no company has made a LWB V221 in 1:18. There's a LWB model of every other generation of S-class, but NOT my favorite one.

Honestly, these three would be personal choices.

1990-1993 Honda Accord (my first car). Stock photo here, mine had a pile of mods to it.


An 84-95 Toyota Pickup (Marty's for reference) Yes, the 89-95 were different body-wise but the truck was effectively the same.



2016+ Tacoma

Thumbs up for the Toyotas SR5 and Tacoma! 👍

The SR5 is more likely to be done by Greenlight, they're do the movie cars. More likely it will be sealed though... :(

But here's hoping either Kyosho or AR have a go at making it.

I think there's a huge shortage in the model car market for pickup trucks, it's basically only the Chinese DE if you want a fully opening example these days, and they only do what's popular to them.

Sealed isn't the dealbreaker for me it is for others, as long as the quality is good. My MFP Interceptors are effectively sealed (doors only) and it's like...would it be cool to be full open, sure, but I can live with it.

The Toyota Pickups don't even have to necessarily be Marty's truck, I just hope they use the USDM bed rather than the other markets. I had a 93 Xtracab for a year that I adored and would love a version of that. My current daily is a Tacoma that's taken some inspiration from Marty's truck, so to have a replica of that would be neat as well.

I don't ever think we will see a 90-93 Accord in 1/18. A Japanese company did a 1/24 wagon, but I have nothing else in that scale and I had a sedan, so it's a stretch for what it is. A 1/18 wagon or a 1/24 sedan and we'd have a purchase.

1988 Nissan GTP racecar please! View attachment 283887
I have been campaigning in this thread for this classic to be realized in the larger scale since 2008 (see the first of my several posts for this and other GTP cars below):

PLEEEEZE GTPs!

Nice to have more voices added to the chorus for this important car!

The Trans-Am Series is no longer the 500-pound gorilla it once was during its early years, but it has huge car counts due to opening up the series to multiple classes (usually run in separate races) and the top class sports 850-horsepower studmobiles running 358 c.i. (5.87 L) engines (same as NASCAR) with some gorgeous bodywork. I'd love to see this one - Tomy Drissi's Lucas Oil Ford Mustang - in 1/18th!
