Way back when, it always seemed to be a 32 ford I was building. I haven't been back into cars long enough to have any duplicates yet, but I do have 2 Ferrarri Mythos kits in my stash. :)

I've got 6 of AMT's awesome '71 Charger here, another 5 of their '66 Fairlane, and 3 of their '67 Impalas. I've got 3 Revell '32 Fords waiting their turn at the bench too. Funny, for someone who was never a fan of '32 Fords, once I built one, I was hooked!

Too many favorites, but the top of my list, judging from how many I have in progress, must be AMT's '32 Fords. Then AMT's '36 Fords, '29 ford / Ala Kart and maybe surprisingly, RM's SnapTite '34 Ford (several projects based on that body-shell). I'm with Slusher on being a fan of the AMT '49 Fords, and have two of those going.

I've wondered that myself. Ive ended up with two special edition chargers somehow, but have yet to build one. I have four different willies coupes, but same story, haven't started them yet.

Currently a three way tie between the AMT '49 Ford, the Revell '32 Ford, and the Revell '06 Mustang.

#1 though is Revell's 94 Impala SS converted to police cars, I have done 17 total.

I have never built any kit more than once. Well now I'm kind of building Miss Deal Studebaker FC for the second time, but now I'm using Simca Vedette body... :blink: But I guess that doesn't count. Anyway my favorite kit is maybe Moebius Models' Hudson or '55 Chrysler C300 NASCAR version. I'm sure that the Stock Version is worth buying too.

For now , Polar lights Funnycars - split between the Charger and the Barrauda kits I have maybe 5 - 6 done and another 8 -10 or so on the shelf.

Then it's the Lindberg 1964 Dodge. I have 3 done now and 2 more in the works with about 12 -14 more unbuilts on the shelf with another 6-8 of the Lindberg 1964 Plymouths

Followed by the Revell 64 Thunderbolt with 2 done with maybe 6 - 8 unbuilts on the shelf.

I have about a dozen of the AMT 62 belairs to do but only 1 done.

All vintage drag car projects.

Yep, the AMT 32 Fords. I have about a dozen, and every time one shows up on epay, I bid on it. Also the 40's in all the types, and to a lesser degree, the 36. I'm stoked that Round Two is bringing out the 40 Sedan Delivery again!

Revell:

32 Ford

37 Ford Pick Up

55 Chevy Belaire

41 Willys

40 Ford

AMT:
