Most of these are re-issues, however I am sure after the iHobby Expo their will be some new surprises.
Anyway here is what I have found so far:
1/24 BB, '32 Ford Street Rod
1/24 BB, Sting Ray III
1/24 BB, '57 Corvette Convertible
1/24 BB, Ply Duster "Cop Out"
1/24 BB, '82 Corvette Col's Ed
1/24 BB, '56 Chevy Bel Air
1/24 BB, '57 Chevy Nomad
1/24 BB, '87 Thunderbird Turbo
1/25 BB, '55 Ford Pickup St Rod
1/25 BB, Ford Mustang Mach III

The BB designation means it is a basic build kit. Some of you may have seen these at the local Wal-Mart and it appears they are releaseing them to the hobby side now. Retail is $12.99 and could possibly be cheaper. Tentative street date is 11/1.
On to the rest:
1/25 Easy Corvette Z06 11/1
1/24 Ford T Roadster 11/1
1/24 '93 Ford SVT Cobra 2N1 11/1
1/24 '70 Pontiac Firebird 2N1 11/30
1/25 Donks Custom Cadillac 11/30
1/25 Donks '94 Impala SS 2N1 11/30
1/25 '57 Chevy Pro Sportsman 11/30
1/12 RM Kustom "Gambler" Chop 11/30
1/12 RM Kustom "Fireball" Chop 11/30

I haven't seen anything on AMT yet.

Be nice if the '87 Thunderbird has a clear tail light instead of transparent red... Wonder what they did to make the '93 Cobra a 2n1?

Probably the same thing they've done w/many musclecar kits, and include a second set of big/little pro-touring wheels. Hmmmm, do a '70 Firebird as a Firebird (non-T/A or Formula; flat hood, no spoilers/slats) w/modern rims....hmmmm... 8)

Pretty ho-hum list for the most part; hope there is more announced at the hobby show.

Hmmm... there are a couple on there of interest to me.. I can use another '93 Mustang Cobra for parts, I've never had the Mach III kit, that could be interesting to customize, never had the '82 Corvette 'Collectors Edition' either.

Let's hope they are waiting until the Hobby Show to announce any new tooling kits they have up their sleeves!

While I must say that there isn't anything on that list that screams "BUY ME!" for me, I am sure there are a bunch that others here are anxious for.

It will be interesting to see/hear what is announced at the show this year. Hopefully the manufacturers will surprise us and of course we can always wait for the Model King!

Won't happen but I'd love to see the proper front and back bumpers to make an LX 5.0. Of course you'd have to cut off the side sills but oh well. For that matter include the parts for a GT instead. Eh, I'm sure a Fox body would look fine on 24 inch rims :roll:

The RR part is 1:25th for the MPC Firebirds, though..probably wouldn't fit the Monogram 1:24th.

Hopefully someone out there will be inspired with the re-release to actually tool up and produce a Formula hood for it in 1/24??? I guess we will see!!!
