What I meant about brick-built cars was that different people like to build different things.

Not all Lego people like cars, and probably not that many at all would like them enough to pay the 100-200$ that these sets would, at a minimum, cost.
I'd have to disagree. If you look on brickshelf i'd say about 40, to 50% of what you see is automobile related. I tyhink that if lego did release a lisened/ford/chevy/austin martin/Volkswagen, or whatever, i think there are plenty that would jump on it. My dad bought the 1:8th scale F1 car when it came out and had me build it for him. One of his friends has bought nearly every Ferrari lego set just because he's a huge ferrari fan.
Please don't take this the wrong way gylman, but you seem to have listed the things you enjoy building. Your right, people do enjoy those things to, but i think that cars are just as high(if not higher) on the list of mocs people like to build. I for one welcome these sets. Being a huge car fan, i think these sets (or one of them) would be a great addtion to my and many otheres collections.
As far as price goes, i would be willing to spend $150 or so a nice mustang rendering. They may not be everyones cup of tea, but neither are the starwars USB sets. I hope to see these sets in the near future.
Calm down... HAVE SOME DIP!
