    Hofbauer Crystal Cars, Ferrari, Corvette, BMW.

    Baught one of these crustal F40s back whe I started my build. I remeber them in stores back in the 80s. Am going to start a collection. I know they were made by Hofbauer of Germany and maybe 34 different models were made. Anyone here happen to be collecting them or know where some more info on them might be? ;D

    I happen to collect these cars. I have a number of them (20+) and have tried to keep the collection to 1/24 scale, like yours you have now. I got most of mine from ebay using the searches "glass car" and "crystal car". There are nascar versions of these as well. I have a testarossa, porsche 911 type, cobra, TD, gullwing, grand sport, etc. These are pretty cool as most of them are frosted in the underside showing seats, engine, spare tire and what not.

    Ferrarixxxman,

    Would you have a possible source of more info on these. I thought the Hofbauer 's were only made in 1:24 scale.
