    LTD II, maybe a T-bird or Elite from JL, where AW would be doing a GT version of the Torino/Montego or maybe a Mercury Cyclone.
    1977-79 LTD II, the Ford Elite and yes definitely the 77-79 T-Bird would be so great. Throw in the the 77-79 Mercury Cougar, and the first 2 generation of the Chrysler Cordoba, the first version with 2 round headlights, and then the 2nd version with 4 headlights stacked like the 1977 Monte Carlo. These are on my wish list, hope Round 2 reads these message boards!

        OK, so it would seem priorities have switched. I sensed that when I found AW had made a series of drag racers. The last I heard they were focused on stock, true to scale models, so it came as a bit of a surprise.
        The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

        Thank you for your understanding.

          Cordoba yes, but Magnum REALLY yes.

            Most models AW makes are muscle-oriented. The Dart, Impala, Barracuda, Galaxie, and others. Then, there are trucks that have a masculine image attached. The Cadillacs and wagons are collected because of nostalgia or huge followings. The thing people remember about the Cordoba is the “Rich Corinthian Leather” that was actually sourced from New Jersey. The LTD II was regarded as a bloated mid-size car because the Chevy Caprice/Impala was downsized that year, which was smaller than the II, but had more room, rendering it obsolete. Plus, it was basically a Torino with sharp edges. I think AW’s strategy going forward is doing the big American V8 boats and muscle while JL makes the cars people drove in the malaise era that not enough people praise.
