Chasing the dream

We all have fantastic and fascinating dreams.
Automotive wise, gearheads like me have plenty of them.
From your ultimate car model, be it a classic or modern, we fantasize about having that in our garage.
A garage full of iconic cars, of course not those garden variety family sedans, SUV and workhorses; instead special automobile to have and to hold for the longest time. Maybe even to keep forever, until it’s time to pass it on to the next generation. We are indeed just caretakers of these special cars: most of them are works of art and timeless aesthetics, enduring testament of mechanical engineering and rolling examples of achievements. Achievements for those involved in creating them, and acquired achievements for the lucky few who can have them in their garage.
My dream garage would be definitely an assortment of wonderful Porsches.
These would include the early 911 (901) and other evolutionary variants among others.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 911 evolution, featured are two 911 I love to have in 1:1 scale.

The white 911 S is a Tomica Limited 1/64

The 964 Rs is a Special Chase car from the Kyosho 1/64 collection. A dream chase come true in small scale.
