The subject says it all. Please answer both sides. What categories do you follow on this forum? What types of cars interest you or are not of interest to you? I don't recall this question or a poll on this subject before.

 

Muscle cars? Vintage classics? Old or new stocki? Drag? Funny cars? NASCAR? etc.

Follow closely: Big Boyz, Under Glass (cars), All the Rest.

 

Ignore completely: NASCAR, Drag

 

The rest, hit and miss. Mostly miss, only enough to "patrol" the neighborhood every now and then....  ;)

I scan through all the model headings, probably about once a month, just to see what's new. I've seen some spectacularly inspiring work in genres that I don't usually build, and have picked up a fair number of techniques too.

 

I've even developed an appreciation for short-track dirt and modified racing in 1:1 from seeing some of the fine work displayed in the NASCAR section.

I look at any model that is well and clean built and where I think the builder has had quite a bit of fun thinking outside the box! B)

Since I usually view by 'View New Content' I don't pay a lot of attention to the categories...but I do check out Car Kit Review, Truck Kit Review, and General sections often..

I follow the car classes and the  Pickup, Vans, Light Commercial , both On the workbench and Under Glass. I enjoy the custom build more than the stock ones. The ones I look at the least would be anything to do with racing and/or big rigs. I don't totally ignore these but they are what I look at the least. And like Harry the rest is hit and miss to me.

I mainly have interest in muscle cars from 60 70 80 90s . Some rat rods and trucks from the 50 60 70s. I ignore mascars and dragsters as well as modern vehicles.

Harry says that because that's what Gregg wants and your opinion doesn't matter.

I am interested in all of them.  Folks are kind enough to share their builds and the least I can do is to read.  Who knows, might actually learn something new. :D

 Greg has dictated that NASCAR (as opposed to any other racing subjects) and a couple of others are here to stay.

 

In any case, I neglected to list my own interests.For my own personal tastes, l only follow:

 

General

On the Workbench

Under Glass

Car Kit News and Reviews

Diecast and Resincast

Big Boyz

How-Tos

Auto ID, etc.

 

For some reason, the trucks section is even larger than the general car section. Go figure.

Which is quite absurd--I see the need for NASCAR and Drag categories, but there also needs to be a general racing section, or an Open Wheel Section, etc.

I've said many times that we need to have either a separate section for all racing types, or one "Competition" category for all racing models (that's the way I would do it). I think having a separate NASCAR and Drag section makes no sense.

Among my subtle points.

I try to go through them all and I ignore Harry P.!  :P

 

But just to rub it in, Mainly Drag and some NASCAR! I appreciate all model building, even the subjects I don't really care for. It keeps the hobby going.

I always check the General, On the Workbench, Under Glass, Car Kit News and Reviews, Car Resin and Aftermarket forums. I check for anything interesting in Drag and NASCAR. I also read Model Building Questions and Answers. Sometimes I check the Diorama section and Tips and Tricks.

 

I ignore all the rest, not building and trucks/commercial, or large scale stuff.

I like 60's drag cars, showroom stocks. I avoid nascar,todays top fuel, funny cars, pro stocks,formula's, indy's and all foreign cars. I don't do big scale , but I don't have room, nothing against them. I check resins, new stuff even trucks mostly all over this site. But Im a gray beard.
