Bottom line: despite our best efforts, there are still a lot more toyWhile I concur, I think there may be a lot of folks in a middle ground. They would choose something accurage if they knew it was there, but have not taken the time to learn enough to know. As a newcomer to this list, I keep learning things, that changes my perception and choices!
Search the web and you will find sites that provide a list of models for a chosen roadname. Many of these models are wrong for that prototype but the people just know that it is lettered for a road they like. Yes there are some good references out there, but without searching the archives of this list (and lots of time even if you do), many a modeler will have no idea if the model is correct at all, whether the prototype had such a car, and whether the paint scheme reflects reality.
