Like GTA said, it is Highway 61. I started using this scheme to list my models here for some time now. If I remember right it was Beemer who made the open suggestion to keep uniformity, so most of my post follow that description convention.

Not the 1967 Mustang, although I would love to have that as well (I think the shop has it), I was talking bout the Maybach 62 (my bad for the typo). But the 67 Stang is also on my mind (maybe was dreaming about it when I made the typo )

I think I uploaded a picture of my display case here, anyways will do it again asap.

my first 1:18 scale model, a red Merc SL500 had a similar removable top. Till date i still don't know what brand is my scale model. Because it has nothing written on its underbody. The car is in very bad condition, though.

Thanks Dippy. BTW, Kyosho has also brought out a working foldable roof for the BMW 3series, these are for the 2007/08 3series and have the hard-top convertible. Think it should be good too, would be passing by the BMW showroom to check it out this weekend.

My latest addition to the Renaux Auto garage... Lamborghini Reventon.

1:18 Mondo Motors - Lamborghini Reventon (Carbon Fibre Gray - mid opaque green/gray)

The details aren't that great, especially in the engine bay... but overall the car is nice.

Where are you buying these from? King of Hobbies? I didnt see the reventon there. Is there any other model car shops besides KOH, the Hobby Center, and I guess AGMC for BMW models?

These are the units I use presently... the layout has changed a bit, these pictures were taken over a year ago I think... will be picking up one more of the black unit... the brown ones are what my dad and I built together... have 6 of them.
