The more the better....I just threw a number out there, because truthfully, I love every single model I purchased in the past year.

I have that WMCE Packard Clipper in black.....they are beautiful in any color.

@ben-lampson I can say that you have an influenced on me with others members here on my purchases. Sometimes i try to not go on the forum to be not influenced but it is like a drug. Fortunately i have enought the control. I have consideretely reduced my purchases.

Sorry I can't provide photos.

1. 1965 Brooklin Chevrolet Impala Coupe

2. 1963 Minimarque Buick Riviera 

3. 1967 Deagostini American Collection Buick Wildcat Coupe.

Out of the American collection so far the Wildcat and the 66 Olds Toronado are A+ standouts. I believe those two were originally meant to be released as Premium X.

Jay where did you find the '67 Wildcat? What color is it? I'd love to have that one too, I just LOVE the styling of that car!

These are my three favorites.

First is the ElMo (Brooklin) 1970 Buick GSX.

Second is the Second City Motors (Brooklin) 1965 Chevrolet Impala in Artesian Turquoise.

Third is the Brooklin 1958 Buick Roadmaster in Laurel Mist Metallic.  I purchased this at the Countryside show last March.  It was one of those models from the past I had been seeking.  Though it lacks the plated window trim of some current Brooklin hardtops, I love all those plated parts on the sides. It comes with some plated parts for top of front fenders in a plastic bag, which I did not attach and left in the bag.

All the other above models look nice.

Thanks for starting this topic.  The pictures show an interesting and wide range of models in 1/43 scale.

@moe-parr Go to Ebay Spain and search "buick wildcat 1/43" or a worldwide search on Ebay. The cheapest one I see is 29,90 Euros + 12,90 shipping. A Spanish dealer , BCN Stock Cars,

(link) https://www.bcnstockcars.com/  

also sells some in the collection, he usually has the lowest prices and shipping is reasonable but it's hit and miss with the inventory. At his site hit Cars, 0-D, and American cars to see his latest listings. also this link

American Cars Collection 1:43 Altaya Spain | Chéveres Collections (coleccionescheveres.blogspot.com) 

has a photo list of the models that have been released and a text list of future planned releases. Note the cars look much better at hand than some of the photos. So far the only disappointments were the Chevy Impala SS and the AMC Javelin.
