So many of these mentioned proposed kits would have been so cool. The three I would have bought in a heart beet are, Polar Light's '54 Corvette Nomad show car, AMT's '50 Studebaker, and IMC's Dodge L series cab over.
Speaking of the Polar Lights Corvette Nomad. I wish someone would do one of its companions, the '54 Corvette Corvair show car.
As far the JoHan's '69 Fury police car. The first Auto World catalog I ever got, and still have, shows a picture of this kit. I'm pretty sure it also appeared in '72 besides. That I'd have to check. I wonder what happened if you tried ordering one. Did they just send you JoHan's '68 instead?
And what happen to the MPC Stiletto show car? I remember buying vending machine trading cards of different custom cars in the late 1960's, early 70's. And I had the card with that car on it. And it did mention something on about MPC models owning or offering it as a kit. If that one ever hit the selves, I'm sure I would have gone for it. I still might today.
Ah... It's a shame. Not only were there those proposed models that were never offered, so they can never be reissued. But, how about the great kits where they messed with the tooling and we'll never see back? Sad.
