i'd suggest looking at what photoetch is available for what kit, as not all cars have a photoetch set. i'd suggest a camaro, mustang or dodge charger.

here's my charger with photoetch kit

I was thinking a similar thought to aussiemuscle - aim for a muscle car from the late '60s/early '70s for a starter. The PE sets for those will be interesting enough to keep you busy, but not as picky-delicate as an older car.
