Sleek looking race cars I know nothing about (LoL....not my "area"). GMP loved racing; they tooled up "everything." Looks like you got 'em all Gavin! 😎

I don't think I've ever seen this one before Gavin. Minichamps picked a very attractive color combo. What year(s) is this?

What year(s) is this?

Maserati produced the 1st generation Ghibli from 1967-1973...the SS from 1969-1973.  In my records, unless it specifically says on the box, I list the 1st production year...so I have it as 1969.

I do love this color combo & it is my favorite.  Minichamps also released the Coupe in black on tan & the Spider (which I previously had, but sold) in silver on black.

Thanks for that Maserati info Gavin.

I like this Mercury Cougar (kind of a "low-end-high-end" if you know what I mean). Mine (orange) had those ultra-cheesy-Ertl GT rims with beauty rings. I'm waiting to score a nicer set of HW61 Mustang Magnum 500 wheels. Your FoMoCo mag-wheels look better than the GTs.

That describes it perfectly.

Looks great in race trim, Rich...always liked that model

What the hell is this?  😮    A very unusual BMW for sure....one I've never seen. 🤔

It is definitely an unusual car.  The Z1 was built from 1989-1991, but never sold in the US...though now that they're over 25 years old, there are some here.  It was built on much modified E30 3-series chassis with a brand new rear suspension & powered by the 2.5 inline-6 from the 325i.  The body panels were plastic & completely removable...you could technically change colors by changing panels.
