I’m sure everyone’s heard of an embarrassment of riches, right? Well, what happens when the riches you have are embarrassing, and they’re so plentiful that you get paralyzed by choice?

Well, for one thing, you get what happened to me! At my local show just recently, I hit the vendors hard, and got so many amazing kits that I am a bit stuck for which one to open up and review first! When you’re weighing things like a Firebird station wagon, a four-door Corvette, a BRAT and a Messerschmitt cycle car, it’s not easy to come to a quick decision.

So, I’m doing what anyone would do, when staring down the Magnum PI Vanagon and a Suzuki Samurai… I’m asking for help!

Check out my awesome score of total automotive oddballs, and give me a hand with a vote for what you want to see as the next out of box car on the Lagoon! Just follow the link below, but be ready… awesomeness awaits!

I used to have the Gunze Sangyo Messerschmitt kit in my stash. I got to see a real one in my old neighborhood as well. There was a guy near me who was a car restorer (hobby or trade, I don't know). He always had interesting cars around. I happened by when one of these was delivered to his house for restoration.

If it were me, I'd start with the Lil Red Express.

I used to watch Magnum P.I. and I owned a VW bus. I'm biased towards that kit.

Adam, put a number from 1 to 9 on the boxes, but don't tell us, and we can each choose a number within a time frame. Highest hit wins.

Either that or build the Corvette

Cheers, D

D's got a great idea. I'll start off with the 1st vote: #3

But if you don't go that way, then I'll chime in with my vote for the Messerschmitt cycle car.

Now THAT'S an interesting idea!

As it is, I've already got a straight poll set up at the link, and the BRAT is winning handily. My personal choice would have been either the BRAT or the Corvette. I've wanted both of those for a while!

Well I'll put my vote in for the Suzuki or the Brat with the Messerscmitt closely following.
