2d distribution in 3d Space

I'm trying to plot 2d distributions (like a bell curve) in 3d space. I
tried combining a contour plot with a regional plot with this code
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
plot1 = RegionPlot3D[x y z < 1, {x, -5, 5}, {y, -5, 5}, {z, -5, 5},
PlotStyle -> Directive[Yellow, Opacity[0.5]], Mesh -> None];
slice1 = ContourPlot3D[ y == 2*x - 4, {x, -5, 5}, {y, -5, 5}, {z, -5,
5},
Mesh -> False, BoxRatios -> {1, 1, 1}, AspectRatio -> 1];
Show[plot1, slice1]

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

however, I can't constrain the z-values to get the shape of the
distribution, I just get a continuous plane that extends from the top
to the bottom of the graph. Any hints?
Thanks
