This time last year my answer would have been the Polar Lights Batmobile, but at this point in time, give me a 1/16th Petty Charger and i'm in my own little world. :D

I've already built two of the '70s Dodge Challenger 2-in-1 kits and getting another one here soon. I built one as a "Vanishing Point" car in white and an R/T in Panther Pink just for fun. My third is going to be a reproduction of the police cars used in the movie "In Time".

I've always enjoyed building the Revell Acura Integra Type-R. Only problem. I can't find them anymore without giving away an arm and a leg.

There are a lot of kits that I like. One I have built a lot of, or used the parts out of is the AMT '67 Chevy Impala SS427

.

 

Whether it was built out of the box...

Had a resin body exchanged to it...

The Chassis, Floorboard and driveline are in these two, which started out as pristine, unbuilt kits.

This AMT '67 body has been modified into a '68. I have to finish it one of these days, once I decide on the color combination, and wheels.
