Default Your favorite diecasts

Nearly every Corvette owner has some diecasts, from hot wheels to the big 1/12 scale. What is your favorite model, and which one do you wish they made? Personally I have a 96 CE and wish there was more out there for that car, and I was wondering if I'm the only one, or if other models have gone overlooked.

I am looking for a 2001 Green or black coupe. If you have a light interior that would be perfect. Will settle for the green or black. Have been unable to locate only z06's in that year

I'm afraid I don't have any right now. I haven't been able to locate any 2001 1/18's that aren't z06's. However ertl did make a 2003 coupe in black. There's one on ebay for 9.99. I had some come in a while ago as poilce cars and I was very impressed with the paint and slim 5 spoke chrome wheels.

Here's the car in police trim:

I was talking to someone yesterday who has a 78 pace car without the "billboard advertisment" on the doors. He said he'd love to have his car in 1/18th (or any scale) without the graphics.

I don't believe they make any 86/87 convertibles in 1/18th. I have seen 84 coupes with targa tops in red, balck, silver (and in blue I think with sports team logos if I remember correctly.)

Franklin mint makes the 1/24 86 convertible in yellow, as well as the ultra-rare mid america version with the pace car graphics. Greenlight makes the pace car version in silver, black, yellow and gold.

I love the 69 Camaro's. I have the Yenko's by ertl, as well as the Baldwin motions, COPO's (pace cars of course as well) in my personal collection.

Thanks for the info, dude!! Appreciate that big time.

Oh God yeh; the COPO's and Baldwin's... got 'em.... also got a very rare ZL1 with the aluminum 427 diecast.... I believe they made 69 of those cars for real in 1969, and were almost double the sticker price of a Z/28.... I know a guy who's friend has one for real in his collection of '69 Camaro's. The guy makes me sick he's got so many cool '69 Camaro's; well north of $1.5M collection of 'em in a warehouse. Eeep.
