My option's not there either.

I collect models of the cars I have owned - when I can get hold of the model.

If anyone knows where I can get a Fiat Panda (red, later model with the full grille) from I would be very grateful.

Tony.

I've got a LOT of hotwheels, and quite a few 1/18 scales (A lot of Vipers and Shelby Cobras, other race cars like Cadillac LMP, Lotus Elise race version, Toyota GT1, Corvette C5R, Ferrari 333SP, Porsche GT1, BMW M3 race version, McClaren F1 race version, Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, Ford Gt40, etc.) Oh, almost forgot, on my desk at work is a 1/18 of my MINI Cooper, red with white roof, wheels and bonnet stripes.

I've been collecting models for about 9 years or so, I have over 140 now, with many very rare models. Almost all of them are 1:18 scale, a few 1:12 (including a Mini ) and a few 1:24. All of them are modern cars such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini etc.

I collect TAMIYA models. I'm also a big fan of Tamiya Motorcycle models (1/18) especially those new MotoGP bikes. I just love to assemble them and paint them.

I have been collecting for more than 20 years. I have some Audis, a Bimmer M1, some Porsche, but mainly AC Cobras and GTOs (Pontiac). Most of them are in boxes in the basement waiting for me to build it out and create a shrine fitting the collection. They vary in size from 1:64, to 1:18 mainly. Some slot cars in there as well.

Cars are my life. If I can figure out how to make them my career as well ......

Same here! Two or three years ago I was with some friends, talking about cars, and one of them asked me which was my favorite car in the Mexican market. I answered that the new MINI, and then I told them how much I liked the Liquid Yellow with White combination! Two months later, one of them gave me a Burago LY/W MINI for my birthday.

Last December, when I decided to buy a MINI, I went to the local dealership, thinking that I would order a black one. But, when I got to the showroom, there it was, a beautiful LY/W MINI (with exactly all the equipment that I wanted -except white wheels-) and I fell in love with it!
