...no really this time.
Like the 1:1 car world, the classic 1:18 JDM market is on fire right now. If you want to get any high end models from the pre-Fast and Furious era, you’ll need to shell out more than just a couple bucks.
A few months ago I posted a trivia question over at LaLD, and lucky Berang guessed the vehicle to win some Hot Wheels cars. Well, after installing Windows to hook up my scanner and Photoshop, I’m finally able to share my reference material with you all! More photos and info (mostly in Japanese) below the fold.
Inspired by MarcoIsAnF1Freak’s post last night on his Majorette Twingo, I decided to get a few pictures of my Norev 3-inch Twingo today with its grandfather, the R5.
I have never heard of MBX Collectibles until today. Now I’m definitely a fan! FYI, MrsZtp and I went antiquing because today’s her birthday.
Today we have a first the 1/64 Sledsters from custom crew. Custom Crew is a now defunct die cast maker here in the USA. I think this was their first and last foray into die cast manufacturing. I picked up as many of these as I could and struck up a relationship with one of the owners, He was nice enough to give me a…
So, not a diecast, but scaled automotive so there’s that.
Today I’ll take a brief respite from the fire breathing monsters of previous weeks, though there are more to come. We will journey through the French countryside again, but much more slowly, and you can sleep in this car upon arrival at Le Mans. I give you the Matra/Simca/Talbot Rancho!
I was supposed to post these 2 days ago but I didn’t get around to it since I was caught up with something else which you’ll see in a bit (shame on me). However, it’s not too late in fact, its perfect timing since this batch of HAWLS is perfect for French Friday. But before the unveiling, a little story.
Two weeks ago, both Lamley and Japan Booster released information about the two recolors of the fantastic GTR Premium Edition. Although the sale already ended, I had to pick them up.
A pair of Jeep Cherokee Trailhawks. I have to admit, the first time I saw that nose... I didn’t like it one bit. But after some time, it kinda grew on me, :D
It’s Friday and I’m back with another Fantasy Friday. On the menu today is the Filet ‘O Fish for $1.79 at my local McD’s. Guess what I’m having for lunch.
Not sure if anyone saw this and/or if I’m oblivious to the world lately, but I stumbled onto this on the hotwheelscollectors.com site. With the recent closings of 100 Kmart / Sears stores, several of us wondered if future K-Day events would be continued or if they would be dropped. Well this just may be a hint:
Here’s a Post about my Custom Outlaw. And recieved the casting from @philiphilip
I’m sure most of us have seen the infamous Top Gear episodes where Clarkson, Hamster, and the Second Most Interesting Man in the World build somewhat amphibious vehicles and attempt to cross the English Channel, scoring a win for Clarkson and Nissan.
A yellow car from Stuttgart :D
After all those Le Mans powerhouses it’s time to get back down to earth. And I’ve shown it’s English RWD brother last LaLD Car Week so you might have a small deja-vu. This one however, wasn’t nearly as exciting as the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus. Here I present you: The 1979 Chrysler Simca Horizon.
I’ve already mentioned that the Clio V6 Phase 1 is my most favorite automobile ever made. Feel free to check out my LaLD car-week pinnacle piece submission here:
Introduced in 2009, the Bentley Continental Supersport GT, remains as one of the fastest luxury sedans in the world. :D
