Wow...300 kits and that was just doubles!!!!! Dang. I've got 18 taking up space and i feel bad with that many unbuilt kits!!!

Well.. 30 yrs of collecting.

It just got a bit out of hand..

It's gonna take yrs to cut down to just my favorites.

Only because all the ones I have are my Favorites.. That is why got them..

If I'm not building them, some one should.

Catch and Release I say.. :D

Pretty cool way to look at the situation. I've started selling some of the kits I had the best of intentions with. I find there is not enough time in the day to get everything done. Work, study, fitness, modelling..... Im limiting my subject matter to mostly one thing.

It's an original issue MPC builtup. It came exactly the way you see it . When I saw it I just had to have it. ( and  unfortunately paid accordingly ) I've had a builder of this car  in my stash for years and never done anything with it. So this  was a way to get instant gratification.

Another 1/8 scale Lotus 72D F1 car. A glue bomb, of course, but still, another Cosworth DFV for the stash. I think a mid-engine street car that combines elements of '27 T roadster with early '70s F1 would be wild.

You may have paid dearly for it but it looks worth it. A beautiful build.

That would be wild...  I wouldn't mind having a couple spare Cosworth DFVs in 1/25th.. maybe put one in a vintage Mustang.    I read a long time ago in Car & Driver that in the '70s someone put one in a F100, but that may just be an urban legend.

There was a '70s Firebird (built by GM, IIRC) with a Ferrari V-12. Also a Jeep Grand Wagoneer with a Ferrari V-12. Somewhere out there is a T-bucket with a Lamborghini V-12.

But yeah man, a super lightweight, maybe even monocoque construction roadster with an aluminum V-8 mounted midship...would be awesome.

Somehow I doubt gm would devote any time money or effort to building anything with a different manufacturer s engine.

The '71 Firebird Pegasus...a pet project at GM built by/for GM Styling exec Bill Mitchell...it had a restyled front and rear w/ Ferrari-esque styling.

GNX I got in the mail today from evilBay for $18, '65 Chevy stepside I got from Hobby Lobby for $15, and the Boyd Hauler/Turbo T-Bird I got from a local antique store for $29. Not a bad day :)

That may be true, but do not forget the first ZR1 Corvette's had an injection system that had to be fixed by Lotus so that they would run.
