Some of you may have seen this little set before, or perhaps you own it yourself. I came across it at BMW’s Zentrum here in South Carolina. My Dad and I went to the BMW Car Club of America Foundation’s exhibit, Heroes of Bavaria. It was a fantastic show! I don’t think I’ve shared most of my photos from there . . .
Slowly, but steadily, the Altaya Lendas Brasileiras do Automobilismo (Brazilian Motorsports Legends) collection is getting to the newstands on my state. So I finally grabbed this awesome Brabham, driven by José Carlos Pace.
It’s no secret that I love the Super Van. Simplicity is often the recipe for success, and if this model wasn’t as good as I think it is it wouldn’t be in HW’s line since 1975. This highly detailed casting was part of the Delivery series from some years ago.
I may had stretched the theme days rule a bit too far, but I guess it’s okay for this awesome MBX Best of the World Dodge pickup. The tampos, the wheels, the colors, everything’s so good about this casting!
Back in 2010 when I saw on the internet this Ferrari 288 GTO was part of the Phil’s Garage series, I looked everywhere, but couldn’t find it. It was only on a collector’s meeting that I finally grabbed this grail. And what a grab! For me, it’s on par with some of the most detailed HW 100% models, probably one of the…
Often, delivery vans are boring, but this ‘55 Chevy Panel from the 2010 series Hot Wheels delivery sure brings the party in the back, with a wicked diecast motorbike!
A true workhorse, when Chevrolet designed this they probably hadn’t the looks as their first priority. They achieved, however, a true gem of a design in form of this 70's stepside truck, marvelously recreated by Matchbox in a period correct color combo. What a great cast!
This may not be the most detailed, the most expensive or the rarer diecast F40, but for me it’s the best. In my 9th birthday (almost 18 years ago), in 1999, my parents gave me some diecast models, and this was the beginning of my collection. Among these cherished models, this sweet Ferrari F40, one of my favorites…
Part of the Auction Block series, apparently this ‘69 Chevy C10 fetched high numbers in the Barett & Jackson auction house. I have this model for several years, but I think I’ve never showcased it here.
I thought you guys might like to see this before/after set of images. I’ve entered them in a photo editing contest, and if you’d like to vote for my image you can.
and go home with style, just after trick or treat’ng!
Here’s my first shoot of the new GT40's on my diorama. I mainly focused on the race winner this time. A new backdrop would be nice, so I’m toying with some ideas. Preferably something a little less labor-intensive and also easier to store than this 4' diorama!
Part of RLC Flying Customs series, this van doesn’t need an introduction. Being featured several times in the mainline and on special series, for me it reached its peak with this model.
I bought an amazing little diorama, so now I am pumped again to take loads of photos of my models!! I took dozens today of some DLM’d RLC exclusives, which I’ll be posting during the week. For now, some selected shots ;)
Today I have a very exciting casting for you. Perhaps the most exciting casting Matchbox has ever produced! May I present to you the...
15. Porsche 930 Carrera 3.2 Yellow Headlight Lense
I love McLarens! This orange 12C GT3 is the latest addition to my British stable.
And now for something completely different, this is a special episode for the Feijoada Friday/Samba Sunday series. Instead of telling the history behind a car today I’m telling the history of one of Brazil’s greatest racing drivers: Rubens Barrichello.
Ford’s new GT is one of my all-time favorite cars. The shape is exciting, futuristic, and totally unique. Yet it retains its heritage and builds upon its history. Iterations of the GT are few and far between. They’ve hit this one out of the park!
As far as I am aware, these are all three versions of the Bugatti Type 57C Cabriolet produced by Hot Wheels. If there are any I’ve missed, please let me know!
