As the saying goes, "Variety is the spice of life." I think variety is the spice of our hobby, too. As we start the new year, I guess I'm looking to buy some cars that are DIFFERENT rather than the "same old same old." As much as I love Lamborghinis and McLarens, after awhile they all start looking too much the same to me despite the small differences in details. With that being said, I would really love to see pictures of the model cars YOU own that you consider UNIQUE -- cars that really stand out as DIFFERENT from the usual ones we see all the time. I think this would be a fun and exciting way to start 2023, so let's see what you've got! Thanks!

Are you looking for series-produced, or customs?

I have two very unique models I'd like to share within my collection. They are as follows:
A 2006 SGM china buick lacrosse dealer edition and my 2003 SGM china buick regal GS 3.0, also a dealer edition. Both are cherished models in my collection and are long sold out and very rare especially here in the US. I also have another buick lacrosse identical to this one in the box. If you are able to find either of these cars online, you're very lucky like myself! These were two cars as a teenager that I've wanted so badly for a long time and I managed to get both and they display nicely next to each other! 😉🍻

Yes. I wanted to show it off more because I know there's probably not gonna be another one posted on here and with photos of it all opened up. A very rare sight! It's not a well known model. But worth it to post! 😉🍻

I have a few of them Chinese dealer SUVs and a couple of dealer pick-up trucks. I might take a couple of pics of each tomorrow, and post them here.

I also have 4 of them flat face/cab over tractor trucks, but even though they're not seen often on here, these are pretty common I guess.

@Scottimus awesome models there, I love that Kyosho Cobra, the Acme Olds and the GMP hot rod. These hot rods are so cool, GMP made quite a few of them and I'd love to have them all. :love:
