    I'm sure I have more, but of your list, I must emphasize the need for the following in 1/64: 1964 to 1966 Imperial, the original Ford Taurus, and most definitely, the 1980-88 AMC Eagle. I'd also like to see a 1960 to 1962 Valiant, 1961 to 1964 Buick and / or Oldsmobile full sized model. Thanks for getting the party started on this subject!

      Broken record for almost 20 years now....Rambler Marlin. Prefer '65, but '66-67 (AMC) perfectly acceptable.
      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.

        I guess it's a good Idea to bump this thread instead of making duplicate threads for the same thing.

        Since Auto World is moving into 90's vehicles it would be a great idea if they started to do either a GMT400 or a GMT800 (I prefer the GMT800 especially the Sierra honestly) Chevrolet and GMC Pickup.
        As the body and interiors are the same with the GMT800's it wouldn't be too hard (in theory) to do both the Sierra and Silverado models, most likely they would do it as a extended cab as they can do the Silverrado SS.

        Some 90's SUV's from the early "SUV Apocalypse" would be nice. Say like a GMT400 (or GMT800) Suburban or Tahoe.

        Honestly I would so love to see Auto World do Australian cars even if they will only appeal to a very small percentage of collectors in Australia and New Zealand, but since Round 2 are now selling Auto World in Australian and New Zealand K Marts it would be great to see castings that target us in mind.

        Gotta do the 1971 to 1978 Valiant Charger. Plenty of potential for multiple special edition models (Bathurst race cars, custom street machines, etc).

                    My brother had one of those, I never understood but he was all beside himself, he really wanted that car. Took his family across country, coast to coast, in it.
                    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.

                      OK, my short list for a competent maker (AW makes that list, HW does not):

                      As stated above, Rambler or AMC Marlin - pretty please????
                      Bricklin
                      59 or 60 Edsel, preferably wagon
                      Corvair 95 forward control, preferably 8 door "Ma Bell" service van, but any up to and including Ultravan camper, rampside pickup and Greenbriar wagon.
                      On the subject of Corvair, a proper Crown V8 conversion in race colors would be most excellent.
                      Hearses and limousine ambulances - all would be welcome
                      Chrysler K car Executive Limousine
                      While both HW and JL have a Dodge Little Red Express, and JL also has a Dodge Warlock, it would be nice to see either or both in proper 1/64 scale and detail
                      Military Staff Cars and service vehicles (in particular late 60's International and Dodge crew cabs), done in mundane military dress.
                      Hurst Olds Cutlass, any and all years welcome but a '76 would be preferred.
                      The last of the big boys; '76 Lincoln Mk IV, '76 Thunderbird and '76 Cadillac Eldorado
                      Any and all El Caminos and Rancheros (especially '79 Ranchero)
                      Any 40's cars, particularly orphan makes (Graham, Nash, Studebaker, Tucker, etc)
                      Continental Mk II
                      More of a decorative preference than anything, so many cars from the era are already done, but the two-tone and three-tone paint schemes of the mid-late 1950s, especially the atypical paint schemes. Bonus points for lesser made models (58 Buick, Pontiac or Olds, or Desoto, for example)

                        For non-US makes (apart from Bricklin / Canada):

                        Oval and Split window VW Beetles (though I seem to recall reading Tom Lowe is reluctant to VW in the AW line)
                        Hebmuller and Karmann VWs
                        Fiat 500 (Topolinos and "Nuova")
                        Abarth (any)
                        Jaguar E-type (I know its been done before, but would still be respectable with the AW touch)
                        Tatra 603 and 613
                        Jensen Interceptor
                        Maserati Mistrale
                        Lancia Aurelia
                        Facel Vega
                        GAZ-13 and 14 Chaika
                        Trabant
                        '70-72 Toyota Celica
                        1960's Nissan/Datsun Fairlady
                        Toyota Corona
                        Datsun 510

                          Yeah, I think that’s because GL has Volkswagen’s covered.
                          I wonder if he is willing to put in this Honda in there or the JL line (since it’s a four door). The 1978 Accord looks good coming from a time when Detroit was churning out vinyl roof after vinyl roof.

                              -Jensen Interceptor.
                              -Jeep J-series pickups. For 1/64 scale, the grill / headlights (and instrument panel) are the only variation. A Honcho, esp. stepside, would be great, as would replicas of the TV show Daktari truck and the truck from the movie Tremors.
