I know the topic of numbers of Chevies, Fords, Chryslers, etc. has come up before, but maybe not Impalas, Galaxies, and 300-series Mopars. What prompted this is a count I made today of my Porsche 917s - 67 of them! I would not have guessed that high. Dare I count 911s? Anyway, here's my latest from Spark:

I have collected primarily Jaguars over the years although I do have a significant collection of various types of race cars plus other primary manufacturers. The most common model is the Jaguar E-Type. If you count all the E-Type 1/43 variations, street and racing, they total 168 at this point. More than I thought.

Too many Harv. For quite a while I was collecting all colour variations of models. Eligor for instance averaged several for each E-Type variation that they made. Sometimes wheels were altered and I added that variation too. Added up. I’m much more selective now.

My numbers are a little smaller, well maybe a lot smaller.  For 1/43 scale it is a tie with four Pontiac Bonnevilles and four Buick Centuries.  In 1/64 and smaller scales, Mustang is the leader.  I have about fifteen, although five of them are 1/72 scale P-51 Mustangs.

Just counted 911s - 62 of them, so the 917s are top dog.

Quick look at my listing shows the Lincoln Continental #1, with 29 (33 if you count 1956-57 Continentals, and I should mention this number includes numerous Mark III, IV, V, etc.).  Ford Thunderbird is close behind at 28, Ford Mustang at 25, and Chevrolet Impala at 24.

I can play this game but a little differently, looking at Teknos only.  Hope that is OK!  I have a bunch of 8's: 300SL, Ferrari 750 Monzas, Mustangs, Volvo Express trucks, Volvo 144s but I have 16 Chevrolet Monza GTs!  So many variations!  Here are a few.

Karl, I remember your Monza article that appeared some years ago in Model Collector.

Always hoping we catch up sometime either side of the pond so you could sign it!

Thanks, Chris and David.  Here is a table from that old article, with all the 1/43 copycats.

Interesting question but on my spread sheet I have not been consistent on the way I put the sub brand description.  But you got me thinking about brands and manufactures.  On just my 1/43 scale models, I have 923 models, 116 brands from 97 manufactures.  Largest percent are from the 50s, second is the 60s and third  from the 40s.

Yikes,  I've got you beat by 4, 172 Jaguars in my 43rd scale inventory,  more than I thought as well.   And then there are the related Daimlers too.
