yes the corvette is amazing. it has a removable hard top. looks beatiful without it though.

The F355, F50 and Enzo are 1:24 but all of them have lots of details. all opening doors, engine details and steerng that works.

Nice pictures Vtec Guy. I like your display

@Mav: AWesome collection there but the display takes the cake. Looks like he has a lot of space. Thats one thing I am lacking now. Need more pictures of this collection.

@Amatmo : Depends where you're buying from. Cannot suggest stuff if its not available.
Try very early 30s Packards, when the grille was full chrome eg:1931 Dual cowl. Signature models make a 1930 Packard Boattail Speedster. Dunno if you will get it here!

The display case looks so nice and classy. It blends in so well with the flooring. Like Dippy said something like this would require a lot of space though.
