At one time, when the 'mints' were sending samples for review and photos, I had every Mint Corvette in 1:24th. Not so much today but still have about 300 of them, a good many on display:

Just fantastic! And I thought my 74 Cobras was an impressive number.....LOL. My entire collection is only 314. I will say this though, I love every one of my 19 Corvettes and am proud to have them all on display. 

I'm wondering, with that many do you have a favorite? Mine is my Wintersteen GS

Probably whichever one is in my hand at the time you ask. But I am partial to a one-off that replicates my first 1:1 brand new Corvette, a '72 convertible in Ontario Orange Firemist:

@perrone

I really like collecting models of vehicles that I have owned. You have a great Corvette and to get one the same colour is spectacular.

My daughter had the 1978 Anniversary Edition and still has the Franklin Mint Model, but no longer has the full size car, unfortunately.
