What cars would you like to see reborn?

In the real world there are a lot of design studios that will take a classic car and add modern performance under the hood/bonnet.
A few car manufacturers are getting on in the act; Bristol Cars, Morgan and Ford.
 In the whiffing world I have found that you are limited to certain scales in plastic, resin or die-cast.
Even improving toy cars seems a better solution. There's aftermarket kits available for detailing the interior, engines, tyres and body shell.
The majority are for the American and Japanese cars with a few European examples in the larger 1/24 - 1/25 or 1:18 scales.

For me Modelkcars.uk do a range of resin body shell and the Mk1 Ford Escort interior. I'm interested in the VW Beetle Estate based on the Fujimi 1/24 Beetle and the Riley Elf Transkit the Tamiya 1/24 is recommend as the donor kit.
The possibilities for a rag top for both, although I think CrayFord did this . Best check that one out.
Heinz in Wembley had a prize of 57 Wolseley Hornet convertibles. As Crayford had already produced the Mini convertible they were given the contract to work on the Hornet.
