Ford GT is always a great casting but in this white color scheme it's a real Beauty :D

My second foray in the world of Americana and this time i've gone to the dark side of the force - Chevrolet.

Nice model (as always) by Spark

Each of those is one of our finer designs of recent times. I'm not very keen on Chevrolet's decision to paint all of those scoops and vents in a contrsting color though. IMO, it looks as though they were purchased from the back of a magazine and plastered on, but the owner didn't have the cash to paint them first. The effect on yellow cars is the worst. The earlier Z06 models were more subtle and the differences were mostly noticeable only to cognoscenti. Kind of like having a 396 badge on the front fender of your musclecar instead of the usual 350 engine badge.

I nearly bought the white one a few weeks back. That colour does look exceedingly good. Do you know if they're bringing out a blue version?

Corvette C7 is very tempting car :) Would look great with the C4 from Bond collection.
In fact I've had to resist an urge to add the 18th scale Maisto C7 in the shopping cart while buying 1/43's... :P

I do like this! Minichamps Boss Mach 1 Mustang 1971 - everything that is wrong with American motors just looks right in this car.

Cool looking Mustang model, indeed! :)

Although, that colour doesn't seem to be 100% correct... :?

Two great additions. This is a little collection your starting to pull together here.
