This weekend at a local convention I was able to do the first public beta-testing of my new Fury-Road inspired gaming system “Shattered Highways”.
I really love these HW Baja trucks,this is one that came in a set I think.The bodys lift off to reveal a nicely detailed racing chassis,but latley i’ve been thinking about maybe trying to mount a slot car body onto the chassis.It would certainly open up a lot of body options,but how to mount it i’m not sure any…
For Muscle Car Monday I present a freakshow of a hopped up Corvair. Because a V-8 engine in the back seat is exactly what a Corvair needed.
A Porsche 911 GT3... ‘Urban Outlaw’? :D
The Euro Style BMW M3 is sort of a mixed bag. Some like it and some dont. Looking at the cast,.... the black wire mesh wheels looks great, it is ‘metal-on-metal’ construction, no big rear wheel symdrome, the ride height is fine... all those things considered, this would be an otherwise excellent cast. But the livery…
I was inspired by the Motor Trend show Dirt Every Day, to build an off-road course for trucks and jeeps. Plus I really enjoy making a natural landscape with grass and dirt roads. So it’s a win-win for me.
Today’s matchup is between a GL ‘62 Dodge D-100 versus a HW 100% ‘59 Chevy El Camino. Both vehicles have hitches and love to drive fast; who’s gonna win?
In this series I will showcase DLM cars ranging within the 1/64 and smaller. The 18th one is a Matchbox #13 Bedford Wrecker. Some of you who are consistent reader of LaLD may wonder ‘Haven’t I just seen this before?’
Just messing around in the backyard after putting the kiddo to sleep...
1961 was a fairly stellar year for Ferrari in GT racing. Highlighted here are two 1961 250 GT Berlinetta Passo Corto SWB chassis cars that did very well in the summer of that same year.
This morning I took the family out to breakfast. Despite getting going early, our usual spot had a line out the door. We went somewhere else, and that place was near Savers. So, we went to walk off a bit of our breakfast in a giant store full of people’s old stuff. I bought four bags of diecasts for a grand total of…
Here is my custom Mazda Miata. It has a 3d printed engine which I showed you on Friday. I hope you like it!
Forgot I got these. Part of my trip took me through Vancouver, where I bought the Canadabus. The two small cars (a Citroen DS and a generic cargo truck) were found in a unique gift shop in a town we stopped in, and they’re made from recycled soda bottles.
Not much today as a majority of it was spent at a Modernism show and sale. No diecasts to speak of except some random late 90s Hot Wheels Volkswagens, loose, in average play condition, asking $9 apiece. No!
A little smuged on the name, but it definitely does not say Koenigsegg Agera R. It says the name of the Agera R’s predecessor, the Koenigsegg CCX. Hot Wheels never made a CCX, so I don’t know what is up with that. I love this car, and this casting, despite its giant rear wheels looking off, but that’s quite bizzare.…
These are all privately owned cars owned by a very wealthy Romanian who has them on display. Enjoy!
Okay, so the unlike the DB10, the C-X75 was not made just for the movie, but, even as someone who has not seen the movie, I would imagine that the car used by the main antagonist would also have been pretty prominent. Granted, the car never made production(sadly), but, that didn’t stop Hot Wheels from making models of…
Which of these vehicles should become my GT2 car?
