Well, i "hate" paper made cars 'cause the insane amount of curves and wheel. But, if you're not too "choosy" about the model details, google for "art66 papercraft": i can't find his site anymore but there's a lot of his simply models around in the web. One of that is this: sp-papelmodelismo.blogspot.it/
Parduz: Thanks but this is not what I'm looking for. Too simple models, deformed or super deformed in the end they are only colored parallelepipeds.
@vermin King: Yes. They are. I'm looking for models in 1/24 or 1/43 scale. Ymjr's models are fine, thanks. I prefer 1/24 scale because the models are a little bigger. And possibly an intermediate ( or easy ) difficult to build.
They should be my "cardboard" proposal for an old man who ,several years ago, built sports cars models. Now, however, he should resume his skills.
Is there any commercial product with instructions, photos ... ?
No, there is not a particular model that I'm looking for. Even the theme, rally cars, it is not mandatory. It is preferable but does not preclude anything. Let's say that the scale and difficulty of the subject is more important than theme.
So, thanks very much again King. These links are very useful to me.

I've been doing a bunch of Volker's models lately. 1/43 for the scale. Volker really added a lot to his collections since the beginning of Advent. Without instructions, there has been a little head scratching, but the models are very good.
Oh, I forgot to mention that printing at 71.66% gives you 1/60 scale. I usually just print at two pages per page and call it good
I'm looking for some nice cars' models (especially rally and street cars but not only ). But this is an unknown area to me.
Is there any advice, please? links to commercial producers (which I prefer) or even good free products?
Ahh... was trying but couldn't resist...
Well I'm definitely far from being an car/auto model publisher by any means... But I do love cars, with special love for Italian ones!
So here is (very simple en profile) Alfa Romeo 156 Sedan (Bella!)
...and here are mines own (Giugiaro Edition, Rosso Siena colour) Bella photos:
As you can see mine beloved Alfa is on a small 16' steel winter-type wheels at these pictures (taken in late fall) - obviously she looks much much(!) more dynamic and so better on bigger 18' black summer alu-wheels! Actually I do like this one car more than any other cars - she's got that both joyful and mysterious something which is missing for other cars!
BTW: these windows (first picture) - that's the place when I'm usually working:)
Anyway let me know if you want some more simple en-profile cars?
Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

Vermin King: The family down the street from me has lost four bikes this year.

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/

Toman: bummer. my sons bike is missing, my twin girls bikes are still in the yard but his isn't. guess I need to go bike shopping today.

squirmydad: Sorry about the delay, dealing with a massive failure at work of a contractor trying to integrate technology from 2020 with technology from 1953.
