All the Autoart S197 Mustangs are a great buy, they've been clearance priced for some time. My personal favorite is the Saleen S289 (non extreme) that sell for ~$60.00. Being very familiar with both the Mustang and the Saleen(having sold hundreds of Mustangs and owning a dozen over the years) this model is dead bang on in every regard, including the add-on tail and back panel. The brakes are phenomenal and little details like the blackout panel(s), half covered quarter glass, and open headrests just look so right on this car. Details are above average for a Millennium series. Nice, big diecast for $60, although they are starting to dry up on evil bay lately.

Been toying with the idea of getting one for a long time, but still can't convince myself.

Elite's F430. This livery was 39€ in CK-Modelcars last month (maybe it's still there).
I buyed two more cars so my final price including shipping was very good, it's a great model for the price!
It's cheap on eBay too.

that's a great one. For me, this was the 1st Elite that showed what HW could do with their vast resources.

some more pics...mine is the presentation version.

Sun Star 1939 Horch 855 Roadster 1:18 scale

One of Sun Star's best diecast models ever made, although it is an older casting. Fifteen years ago it probably sold for less than it cost to make. Some few years ago it could be had for $20 or so. Prices have escalated, but it can still be gotten for $40 to $50. The chassis is diecast metal and there are plenty of details, including a double-hinged hood, no dog leg door hinges, beautiful chrome and nameplates, convincing imitation wood dash, nicely done wire wheels and well executed running lights front and rear.

That last Horch reminded me the W25 from Ricko. I looks great and has very good details for a Ricko!

The Auto Art Porsche Carrera GT sure seems under appreciate. It looks amazing in white. Funny, because it even got a second release. I would love to hear someones opinion on the 1st release vs the 2nd release. I kinda like how the first release got the factory light brown interior compared to the black interior in the 2nd release.
