My wife recently asked what are my favorite models and I was stumped . After a little soul searching I came up with my top five as follows , but not in any particular order .

Ford F100 Wild life Truck with Zebra Stripes
Ford Capri
Holden Pick Up
Mercury Cougar
Volkswagen Camper

These are , in essence childhood favorites that have stood the test of time ...
I'd be interested in others favorites ..

My fave is and always has been (since it was first released) the Porsche Turbo. I have 77 variations so far and am still looking for more. And I still haven't got into base variations on it.

The rest of my top 5 would be more modern versions of the 911 too.

:) :D :P

My top five are:

#54 Ford Capri - orange body with black hood with my particular favourite being the one I hand painted yellow with matt black hood after the orange faded to pink.
#44 Boss Mustang
#33 Lamborghini Miura (original version with normal wheel arches)
#8 Mustang Fastback
#9 AMX Javelin

Like other posters these are childhood favourites, as would be my next 5 or 10 choices. There have been many great castings over the years but going by the other posts, it would appear that the childhood favourites, the ones that led to our lifelong collecting, remain our favourites.

I love the ones I remember buying between about age 11 & 13, at toy shops in Maidstone, circa 1981. So for me, the top five (in no particular order) are:
62 Corvette in dark metallic red
55 Cortina in light metallic green
28 Lincoln Continental in dark pink/white
56 Mercedes 450 SEL in metallic blue
3 Porsche 911 Turbo in silver
All with memories attached !
Thanks, Iain.
