I have the original release in white. In my opinion the best colour for the car by far. I don't know if there are any differences between the recent re-production.

Umm, I disagree on this one being under-appreciated. It sold out, went for idiotic prices on ebay and got rereleased.

I think it looks great, btw. Apart from the engine.

My pick for UAM (lazy) is the Autoart Fairlady 2000. I didn't even know it existed until my dad got one, its a great model from Autoarts good period. And when looking for a pic for this post I found a truly amazing custom job:

Here another under appreciated piece, the Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Model can still be found and under $100. Detail is exceptional, during Hot Wheels Elite peak period of great releases for the Ferrari marque.

Let's continue this thread, seeing it hasn't been touched in more than half a year.
The Hot Wheels Elite FF is meticulously detailed, putting a few AutoArts to shame, with all the photoetched decals and meshed grills.
Model can definitely still be found for under $70. Mine was a bid and only costed me 40.. for that price, you'd HAVE to get one.

I'm more hooked on the American Muscle scale models. This 1/18th 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt was a "MUST HAVE" for me. It was scaled just as it came from the factory in the 1:1 versions. The detail on this car was and still is amazing to me. I've had it in my collection for over 10 years now and still give it much TLC. It was made by Precision 100 Models and retailed for around $99.99 when it was first issued. The prices dropped over the years to the cheapest I found was $59.99. They are still available on ebay from $75.00 to $140.00. It also came in white.

Some of the detail features that really caught my eye was the battery mounted in the opening trunk, the interior detail with keys hanging from the ignition, the wiring, hoses, and detail of the engine, the steelie wheels with steel colored lug nuts, and the real hood pins that kept the hood closed...
