  1. I collect 1/18 models of actual cars I have owned. So far I’ve found 12 of the 50. Your measurements are almost irrelevant because scale cars correspond to the 1:1 models and an Isetta would be rather different from an Rolls, of which I have both.

  2. It seems C5 Corvettes 97-04 Diecast cars are few and far between. If anyone knows where any are please reply. I am looking for a stock and zo6 Black diecast.

  3. I have collection of 1/24 scale Danbury & Franklin mint die-cast. I have 4 C5 Corvettes. All 99s. Two convertibles, one fixedroof,and one. Hardtop. I have never C5 -06. I have a total of 50 select die-cast. I have C1 thru C8 Corvette. I miss Danbury Mint quality.

  4. Have collected DIECAST models for the last 70 years …..have all sizes, but the majority are 1:18 th
    Have in excess of 600 in total including all sizes !

  5. BMW has had collectible Art Cars for years. 1:18 scale reproductions of cars done by many of the world’s most influential artists.
    Great cars to collect.
