There are several vehicles I would be tempted to see . Excaliber Phaeton, straight 8 Auburn roadster , Duesenberg SJ , 810 Cord , Mercedes Benz 1937 SSK , M-B Maybach
Lamborghino Countach , and Lamborghino Diablo are some of my favorite vehicles that I haven't seen avaiable . I am still waiting for my  Ford 8N tractor that I ordered to come in.
Rolls Royce and Bentley are both great vehicles.  J2.

I dont have any wish cars. I have lived through several of our very best late 60's early 70s vehicles owned by various family members. It's all about American big block, large cube-age and lots of vehicle. Gas was .28 in those days.

If it aint got a double barrel Holley, headers, sway bars various useful items associated with top end speed and handling (Not necessarily launch cars... I am  a top end man.) forget it.

Now, in the spirit of this thread there were several cars that were well built, responsive and felt like I could count the pebbles under each of the four tires and a engine that was just overly nervous and ready to work faster than I can think. The cars that no effort is required other than mentally staying ahead of it are the best.

With that in mind it's going to be the Viper. Of course I would not have any legal room to let it run wild... Certain models of production cars such as the Mustang, Challenger/Charger and Mercedes also come to mind. 

Now those are nice, all cars are nice.

But give me 600 Cats, two turbos, foot wide stacks and fire 5 feet coming out and a dollar rig to haul 25 ton quickly between Coasts. And maybe some old radial engines common to the B-17/B-29 would be good as well.

The sweetest engine I ever heard is a Merlin on a P51. Heard and saw one several times and will never forget it.

if you need challengers and chargers, atlas has those. the reason we need pricey looking cars is so we have a reason for this!!!

The local Bentley dealership has a couple of nice corniches for $400 K. Thinking about the NY State sales tax on that amount makes my head hurt. It would buy a serious amount of Bachmann On30!.

I was sitting in traffic on the Long Island Expressway last week when I heard this throaty roar in the next lane. It was a really nice black Lamborghini. With all that horsepower he couldn't go any faster than me!

A dream car for me would be a nicely restored 55 Chevy - just like the one my aunt owned.

if you are talking model cars, malibu and fresh cherries did many of the more exotic cars in HO scale. fresh cherries also did the ford escort and tempo, and the amc gremlin and pacer.

i would like to see a line of the more common cars, particularly the 1970s. how about chevy nova, or plymouth duster? maybe a ford pinto or chevy vega? some pickups and the infamous customized chevy van?

that is a good point jward,

i forgot to add that this post was intended for the disscussion of MODEL CARS that we want in the ho, n, z, ext scale catigories. i would also like to see some of the more common cars, especiley the '80s and '90, but an aston martin or konninsegg wouldnt hurt to have in an exotic car dealership on a layout.
