If you have a classic car lover in your life, stock up on miniature versions of his favourite muscle cars from the past. Miniature model cars come in a wide variety of colours and models. You can purchase them assembled already--or you can buy kits that the gift recipient can use to assemble on her own time. If the car model is especially delicate--or if you want to create a museum feel in your gift recipient's home--you may want to consider buying a glass display case for the model cars.

Corvette

A base model Chevrolet corvette costs nearly £32,500. A miniature version is closer to £32. Corvette die cast models represent between eight and 64 inches of the size of a standard corvette and can be purchased from a wide range of years. You also can select the favourite colour of your gift recipient--including limited edition colours like "atomic orange."

Ferrari

Italian automaker Enzo Ferrari began designing the first Ferrari in late 1945. The Italian racing tradition continues today. Buy a Ferrari model kit for about £26. The final product will weigh about three pounds and reach only about five inches high--perfect for a shelf or desktop.

Lamborghini

Known for their futuristic, space ship-like flip doors, Lamborghinis fascinate at a high price. Luckily, you can purchase a miniature model for less than £9. All of the thrill without the empty bank account or debt. Choose from a range of colours, models and sizes. A diecast of 1/18--which means that the model represents 18 inches of the original car--is a standard size for a model and shows adequate detail, according to Die Cast Fast.

GTO

The 1969 Pontiac GTO is a classic muscle car that was known for being fast and inexpensive. The GTO became popular in 1969, according to The Classic Car Buyer's Guide. Give a GTO model kit or die cast model to a child of the 60s, who likely will hold some nostalgia for this model car.
