:oh: Very nice! It seems like you got the overall shape pretty nicely, considering they are 4-wide. My favourite is the white and blue one :thumbup:
BTW, the car covers look really cool. Are they just packaging paper?

That looks like a Holden HSV GTO coupe :classic:

Yeah the blue and white one has nice colours to it.  :classic:

Nice collection Allan :classic: I like all the little differences between them. The white one with blue stripes is instantly recognisable as an old GTHO, great work :thumbup:

Nice 4 wides 'Allensmith', but Falcons are very wide body cars, so 5 or 6 wide would have been better, but still I too like the blue and white - Allan Moffat driving it and yellow - red combo - Dick Johnson........yeah, I've watched V8 Supercars in the past.
Keep on bricking ! :sweet:

I have decided to go with 4 wide cars and 6 wide trucks/buses to standardise my layout. It also makes them match LEGO's cars and trucks. All my 6 wide cars and  6 wide pick ups have been destroyed.  :devil:

They look very good, I would also like to see them in 6 wide.
It will hurt your standardization in scaling, but they may look even better!

I agree if you are working with minifig and lego standard city 4 wide for cars are the way to go. great use of the stickers is there a raceway in the pipeline.

Nice work! Especially from the side, they look good and well proportioned.

If they were 5-wide, the proportions from the front and top would be better, but I realize that making 5 wide cars is easier said than done.....
