Cami, my first choices from your list are the Cord, Deusenberg, Studebakers, Henry J., and Nash Metropolitan. But it would be a great treat to have models of any of the cars you've listed.

I see you have the Ford Woodies listed. A 1953 Studebaker Cantrell Woody station wagon would be nice.
1953 Studebaker (Cantrell-bodied) woody station wagon

Actually any woody would be nice.

Early '30s Duesenburg SJ, Cadillac V-16, Packard Speedster-all with phaeton bodywork. A Cord roadster would be nice also. A 33-34 Ford sedan would be interesting just from the "Bonnie and Clyde" connection.

Any (or all) the late 40s stepdown types for me,
And the late Studebakers of course.

Cord, stepdown Hudsons, Studebakers, they were all considered for next year, I take your request as a confirmation. Baby T-birds and first gen Corvettes are also considered. What do you think? I also have to reserve some time to finish the '50-'53 Cadillac you saw on the 1953 Cadillac thread. 5-6 models a year probably is the best I can do considering the amount of time required to bring them to the highest standards.

Almost any vehicle in your Wish List would be a very fine addition to a collection Cami.
I've only a few offshore suggestions, simply because they had influences in American styling within the relevant decades, which makes the offshore vehicles relevant to a US vehicle collection.

1934 Essex Super Six

1939 Tatra 77

1937 Bugatti Atlantique

1957 Jaguar Type IX

1957 Mercedes Benz 300 Sl Gullwing Coupe

1959 Bentley Continental R Type.

(Ever noticed how the early Lincoln Continentals seemed influenced by the Bentley Continental?)

Kind and Respectful Regards Cami, Uyraell.

Foreign cars that had a special place on the american car market could eventually... if I do not get married first lol... be the object of a special series. the Gullwing would be a must, but I would go for the Jaguar E-Type rather than the Type IX. The Bugatti Atlantique is beautiful indeed. The 1924 Hispano-Suiza Tulip wood would be my first choice I guess for a non-american related car. It would look great in 1/24 scale... who knows?

Thanks for your suggestions Uyraell.
Cami
