    Just got a Lambo Muira SV 1/18 scale off Ebay for less than $50 new in box!! WOW!!! These models are awesome---NO more buying HW regulars, Maisto, Bburango-----I will only be buying the better models from now on. The difference is unbelievable. I will slowly be selling off all my regular versions as I find the better versions----Anyone looking for something in regular HW, Maisto or Bburango--send me a PM....I have about 40 I will be getting rid of...

    Yup they are very nice, if your into Porsche at all pick up the 917k with the gulf theme. I bought one a few years back and its one of my favorites. In fact I think I only have 2 Porsche diecast in my entire collection.

    I have the Miura too as well as the Countach and a couple of Subarus. Just bought a BMW M5 E28 and Lancia Fulvia. They are really great value for money and the shape and detail are spot on.

    I thought and think the same way, BUT wish I had saved my money and bought one GOOD model every couple of months, than 5 regular models..The detail is worth the spending the extra...Trust me I thought the same way you did up until I got my first Elite and Autoart...

    I have the AutoArt Gulf-Porsche in the Steve McQueen livery (from "Le Mans"). I also recently got the Long-Tail 917L in Martini & Rossi livery ('71 LeMans-Elford Larousse) and it is even better with more detail and tighter shutlines. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the Porsche 917 (I have four different 917s in 1/18 scale).

    Kyosho and AutoArt are absolutely worth the extra money.

    I love AutoArt cars. I only have the red Countach, but it is astounding. :)

    If anyone is interested, I have some AUTOart models for sale. For the money, they are a very nice product. The 1:43 scale are surprisingly detailed as well.
    I will be away for 4 days, so I'll have to pull them out when I get back next week and post what I have.

    If anyone is looking for anything feel free to PM me your email addy after Tuedsay. I'll send an email with Jan/Feb Expected Availability.

    I am quite surprised that more collectors are not buying these models. I find them to be very well presented. You can't go wrong for the price.

    Besides the models, they have some really nice Accessories. I have some of the Bathroom accessories for sale in my store, among other items, and I am to the point of just keeping these items for myself to use when I get into my next house.

    The office accessories are some of the coolest items I have found for an office. I guess around here, all these cheap Hot Rod Old Farts would rather sink their money into their next car. YAWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNN!

    Here are some really cool examples of what I have in my office that think all car guys should have in their office.

    I have these next 3 below, but plan on changing them up for use on something else.
