I own a model car that fits into this collection.

Does anybody know if the real thing has ever existed, too?

"Catch" was quite active in this field over the years. I attach some of their cars. At least there was a Renault 18 Break "Catch".

Amazing thread, of course.

I had started something like this in some group puzzles. The first one featured some cars that you meet again in Grob's thread here. See:
http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?topic=8954.75

In the other two ( http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?topic=5673.0 and http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?topic=7022.0 ) there were also advertising cars, but not only.
