Here is my 5.  It's hard to pick only 5 and every day it might change except the first 2...  I will say that with the upcoming Mustang Notch back release and the Fujimi Pantera that filled (2) of my wished from what would have been last years list.

 

1).  1967 Ford Galaxie.  We soooo need this in scale.

2).  Jaguar XKE. An all new tool...coupe or convertible (though if I had to pick it;d be the coupe).

 

Now for me, from here on the list is subject to change :) LOL

 

 

3).  32 Ford Tudor chopped and Zframed.  

You know I think Revell has a real winner with the 1949 Merc...for all of us who wanted a chopped coupe but could never do one, that was perfect.  I'm thinking the same idea with a chopped and lowered 32 ford.  Could release several body versions on the same frame and engine...

 

4).   1968 Mustang California Special.

Amy I right ?  I mean who doesn't want that right ? hahaha

 

5). A corrected Revell 1969 Mustang

Here is the thing...that's already a good kit.  Actually a great building kit but the nose is just WRONG.  The key to this is they really only have to redo the nose since that's all a separate piece.  Since the 69 fake side scoops are already a separate piece, they could cast another piece that would make it flat like the Boss 302.  So from that tool all they have most of the parts to make a Boss 302 version.  New 302 engine new non Mach 1 dash and interior...and you have a 302.   Yeah I know you'd have to fill in the gaps on the body to make the 302. but most of today's market is an adult builder right ?  Anyway...that's #5.  For today anyway :)

You know Jason I have to agree that the Ghibli is one of those best of the best looking cars.  For me, depending on the day, Its a toss up between the Ghibli and the Muira.  I think the only reason I did not mention it in my top 5 was because the wind was blowing Muira that day.  Seeing your Ghibli swings the pendulum a bit today though.  What an absolutely beautiful car.

 

So....make this easy.  If I had to pick 2 classic exotic cars well it;d be the Ghibli and the Muira.  Or the Muira and the Ghibli...depending on the day LOL
