Yes, it’s time for another Bburago review.
Here is a 1:24 Lotus Evora desk buddy.
Four-door Japanese saloon. Them’s hardly fightin’ words - our minds conjure images of beige Camrys, Accords and Altimas. Hey, I drive a Japanese saloon too and it definitely isn’t something that comes to mind when someone mentions sporty or in this case, race car.
This is the little scorpion! The Abarth 124 Rally by Tomica. It came in two colours, but I bought this rally version due to the stickers that I could paste on my own. It’s a very cool car...
If you know me, you know that I adore the Alfa Romeo Giulia. I was probably one of the first of Oppokind to drive and review one, and it was an event which has stuck with me since. I yearn for the day they hit the used market so I can pick one for cheap (I don’t care about the apparent reliability issues). So,…
Well, a 1/24 scale model of one, anyway.
This is not a car.
Here is a new Greenlight Hitch and Tow trailer. Ok, some of you may say that it’s not really new as this has been available in the Hitch and Tow series and as a single but....
Trucks don’t seem to get a lot of exposure here in LaLD so I decided to bring about this Tuesday with one hot and shiny truck that you’ve every seen. Let me tell you a story about me and this truck.
Mamma mia, a Fiat Nuova 500 as a Yellow Cab? A picolla auto indeed for a cab. You better have a small luggage with you or it goes on the roof!
If LaLD had a missing persons’ report, I would’ve undoubtedly topped the list - having last seen with a post describing my visit to a collector’s toy fair in April 2016.
For Christmas I got two Lionel 1/24 JGR Xfinity series Camry’s. Being a Matt Kenseth fan, and a Erik Jones fan... this is an awesome add to my collection. They’re both from the 2015 season. And a first for my collection. I don’t own any modern era grand national division diecast. So it was cool to finally get a few.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
So, Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Today I present a not-so-great model of a car that I despise all around from an era of American manufacturing that wasn’t that great. So, why do I have this thing in the first place?
After the warm welcome I received with my first post on that Bburago Range Rover, I decided to follow it up by the second package I received that week, this Welly 1:64 BMW 2002ti. I had planned to take care of that the week of receiving it, but you know...life...life’s a bitch, innit?
A few weeks ago, someone posted a link here to an estate auction website: ebth.com. I don’t remember who it was now, but whoever you are, thank you. I perused the site and came across quite a few things that piqued my interest. The most interesting though, being a pair of Matchbox cars.
I have always loved Amc products. Since I was a little kid, I was always deeply fascinated by their cars. To me they will always be my favorite manufacturer. They were the underdog going up against the big 3 in those days. Things sure didn’t end up pretty for them unfortunately. But they fought until they no longer…
Right after the Dover race I attended a few weeks back, I pre ordered the raced version of Matt Kenseth’s race winning car. Only to find out a few days ago that they didn’t meet the minimum pre order requirement. So I took my sad self on over to eBay and looked for the regular version. I was able to find one for 20…
Love them, or despise them. The K car served it’s purpose for the Chrysler corporation through the entire 1980's. It was a cheap inexpensive econo box for the masses. And it brought Chrysler out of its deep grave that they dug Themselves into. Inevitably they dug themselves back into one years later. But that is a…
