Dippy, MAN!!!! THATS ONE HUUUGE LIST!!!!

I save up for a LONG time before I can afford even one car, so I can only a get a 1:18 once in one and a half years!!!!
So my 1:18 list is small( although my entire car collection, including 1:24,1:43, and 1:64 goes on to 55)

Merc 300SLR Mille Miglia
Jag XJ220
Porsche Carrera GT
Lambo Miura SV
Audi R8 Le Mans 2001

My 288 GTO is made by Hotwheels Mattel. The Mattel 288 GTO is a lot better than the Bburago one

You can try finding em on ebay.com. In Mumbai its vitually impossible to find. How ever try calling Overdrive mag . They might have one left in Bburago i had seen it for sale at the exhibition i told you of. But it was the competition verson with stickers. Well you can always peel them off isnt it. Apart from stickers its the road car anyways

Cheers

Dippy

Yeah, I'm really proud of it. Its by a manufacturer called Anso.

I had gone to this obscure hobby shop hiding in some deserted place, and found it behind some pretty old stuff!! I got the shopman to give me a big discount for it and a Revell Plymouth AAR 'cuda 1:24 kit I also purchased there.
