Thanks guys....These Autoart cars are amazingly detailed...

However, Autoart did make one glaring mistake on these '71 Mach 1's....something even the lowly Sunstars got right....

On '71-73 Mach 1's....the bumpers are color-matched to the car paint color....only the Boss 351 had a chrome bumper....and '71-72 non-Mach 1's...I hope they release a Boss 351 version at some point....unfortunately, this model has been retired for a long while now....

Does anyone own Danbury Mint cars?

They make a nice 1/24 Boss 351....looks nice but not sure on the quality

The Ertl Blade Runner cars are as old as some of my Macross Takatoku Toys!

Weathered? A little dusty I suppose, nothing a light cleaning wouldn't take care of.

I have them up on ebay if you or anyone else is interested!

Can anyone recommend a good Ford Gt model? I really like the 2004-2006 body style as it is a really good homage to the Classic Ford GT40.

Blade Runner diecast cars from Ertl....

I had the orange and brown ones as a kid! Must have been around '85.

I also had a Lamborghini Countach and thought it was from the same set! Because it looks like a space ship. Still my favorite call ever.

Oh, just saw this as I was posting in the Mospeada thread...Might as well drop this here too

I saw that post and decided to google for Tomica Countach. There is 1/43 one that is semi reasonably priced.

I wish it was easier to get a decent sized Countach toy. Rite Aid had the Miura recently so I was hoping we'd get a Countach too. Jada has some classic cars like Kitt and Karr from Nightrider for just $10 each at Wal Mart. But no Countach anywhere.

Oh nice! I want a dfinitive Countach model too but haven't come across any I like enough and am willing to pay the price for. Did you get one like this?

Dude, a Lancia Stratos prototype! What scale is that? I wonder if Tomica ever made a Alfa Romeo Carabo.

Also the Countach is awesome and the box looks like it says 1/43 which is nice.

I kinda want it too! Red will work for me.

Yellow does looks great on the Countach. Or any Lambo it seems. Even though I don't really like yellow on cars generally.

That’s a beautiful car!! Reminds me of my brother’s real Mach1.

Only my brothers had the Lou era on the rear window and Keystone wheels. When he bought the car a lot of extra parts were included including the Magnum 500 wheels and a separate honeycomb rear panel cover.

That car was amazing and thank you JVMacross for res parking those memories.

It's 1/43. there's a review on Youtube:

Also the Alfa Romeo Carabo 1/43 does exist: https://www.carmodel.com/solido/1816/1-43/alfa-romeo/carabo-bertone-1968/99896
