"I saw your response regarding the Impy Imperial and had to mention
one that you forgot,although larger than 1/64 (as is Corgi's). A company
called Sabra in Israel made a 1/43 scale 66 Imperial CV in the 60's, along
with a line of other American cars including GTO, Eldorado, Charger, Barracuda,
T-bird, etc. They are not real common, but are very nice. I have several
of them in my collection, although not many. A feature on these cars would
be most welcome."

"P.S. - Your site is excellent."
Editor's response: A great idea, watch for a story on Sabra soon.
"(Regarding Skunk Works II - Seeking the Striped Viper)
You asked for additional Vipers, and I have what I think to be the largest
documented list of diecast and toy Vipers anywhere. Please stop by and take
a look at: http://home.att.net/~fogbert.
Thanks for the great article."

What die-cast price guide would you reccomend? I'm trying to price some
of the cars in my collection (including Corgi Jr Charlie's Angel's Van).
Thanks for your help,"
Michael House, Fort Erie, Ontario Canada
Editor's response: This is a common question. There are many good
price guides. My personal favorite is Diecast Cars by Douglas Kelly. It
sells for $29.95 at most major bookstores.
