I haven’t really had the urge to buy many new die-cast for some reason, but after attempting to build them in LEGO, and reading their unfortunate history, I’ve come to really love the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR and the W196, which I consider two of the brand’s all time best.

It’s really bizarre. Even though there are models that I want, I haven’t been able to pull the trigger on any since thr LFA. I did find that 50th Favorites AMC Javelin recently, which I’m happy about.
