I have to go along with Casey on any of the Gofer Racing sets. Also, the Dr. Cranky's sets are colourful, interesting and well printed. The decals for the Tamiya Porsche 911 GT1 are well done and make for an amazing livery.

The one car sheet that took the top of my head clean off was the one in the Simil-R Matech Ford GT. Perfect registration, foil-reflective highlights, super-sharp and subtle.

Non automotive, I really dig the Aztek-pattern and weathering decals Polar Lights includes in its Star Trek TOS and refit Enterprise kits.

Kit-wise, I would say the AMT Fiat/Double dragster and Polar Lights Challenger F/C; aftermarket, I would go with just about any of Gofer Racing's sheets. FYI, don't overlook decal sheets for military aircraft models- often, they include stencils and placards that can be used to add a little extra detail on automotive subjects, too.

The decal sheet from my Doyusha 1:12 Lamborghini LP500 has some Playboy bunny decals, those are pretty rare

I also like the scallop decals in the Galaxie '46-'48 Chevy kits, they'll work on a number of other cars.

I'd say 80-90% of mine are MIA, a far cry from the 20% they said would be affected.

I love that light commercial sheet.

Here's two police cars I've done with decals from that sheet so far. I'm planning a taxi from that sheet right now!

Does it have to be decals or will this sheet do? I was fortunate to find two complete mint condition sheets at a show about 20 years ago. I had to have them because I had them as a kid! One has remained the way you see it, the other one I've been using on my builds, most notably on the cars in the Olde Kustom Kollection!
