A beautiful Lotus Evora in classic British Racing Green. Mmmhmmmmm.......
This is a really solid casting by MBX. A faithful replica of the “runny egg headlights” Porsche Turbo. And it’s so good that Matchbox is gonna release another variation of this model sometime this year.
Another well know movie this time with 3 getaway cars. The original 1969 movie stars Michael Caine and 3 Mini Coopers. The 2003 remake with Mark Wahlberg uses 3 modern Mini Coopers with extensive chase scenes. My take on this is to use Italian cars with 3 Fiats instead and maybe call it “The Real Italian Job”. Godere.
Here’s a brief post about my namesake. This is my collection of Matchbox Premiere Dodge Viper RT/10s and GTSs. The gunmetal gray RT/10 is a European-only model, and the black & silver RT/10 was only released individually in Australia and in very small numbers in a multi-pack in the U.S. It took several years to find…
Some vintage Lesney Matchbox (and BP) love for today! Enjoy!
Ventured out into the snowy tundra for some car quest.
Our Dollar Tree just like other locations I believe have an abundance of Matchbox Rovers. I didn’t plan on purchasing them but as the stocks began to dwindle I decided to get these 2 as they are the ones I most likely would enjoy.
Found a few Matchbox....
Did a lot of driving today. Found some good stuff.
After seeing other folks post about the F&F cars showing up at their Walmart, I stopped in this morning to take a look. They had moved the dump bin to a weird location off the main isle, so that may be why it was still packed to the gills with F&F cars. There were plenty of each – including the Skyline. I picked up a…
This French Friday we have four Citroen five-seaters: two from the ‘70's, and two from the ‘00's! Yep, the venerable CX berline and estate alongside its spiritual successor, the C5 lineup.
So I already posted all the Majorettes I’ve found at Marshalls lately. I finally got a chance to go through them and figure out what I want to keep. So those will be in this post, promise! But first a few other things.
I made the mistake of stepping into a Target again on Saturday. My V50 was clinically low on oil (it’s been leaking, again) and I had removed the left headlight unit to change the bulb so I took my dad’s V70 for a parts run and stopped by Target on my way to Autozone.
Just received it, and what an awesome casting this is. Volvos for life!
For the many Americans on this site, here’s a potential deal for one of the most desirable Lesney Edition releases.
These are several cars that I’ve put pen and paintbrush to. Most if them, recently, some have been hanging around awhile. There are still a few not included here that I will post at a later time. Anyway, since I had several days to be bored, I started noticing that most of my Hot Wheels and Matchbox were just not…
The Hudson Hornet cop car by Matchbox, another nice casting I found at the 99 cent store:
This one had been eluding me for a while. It’s a cool casting, I have a truck and a coupe with the same front end in my collection, time for a family shot methinks. The color is really nice on this one. Somehow it feels like a casting Matchbox would have done in the 70's or 80's
I’ve left this casting behind before, specially because of the size of the tires, they seem much too big for this car and because it was painted in different colors. I grabbed this one because it reminds me of Mr. Bean’s Mini Cooper. I really like the painted hedlights detail and the badge in the front. I have not…
