Another swap facilitated by the Cheras Hot Wheels Collectors, the Majorette McLaren 675LT, now with the Hot Wheels Euro Style mesh Real Riders.
On this Thursday on the Thames we have three of Lotus’s greatest lightweight two seaters which range from playful roadsters to dedicated track machines. Technically, the latter isn’t strictly a Lotus at all, rather it’s Caterham’s modern-day interpretation of the classic Lotus Seven.
The Evora GTE is a variant of the Evora that was built by Lotus to satisfy FIA’s homologation requirements for the GT3 and LM GTE class. Originally intended as a 25 number limited run for the Chinese market, Lotus upped production seeing the demand explode there and later expanded sales to the rest of world.
I just realised I had this Majorette F-type. Found it hidden somewhere in my drawers lol
Hnnnnnggghhh....... black beauty.......
Today I have a very exciting casting for you. Perhaps the most exciting casting Matchbox has ever produced! May I present to you the...
My latest ebay purchase arrived last night. Here’s another teaser. The wheel should give this one away easy...
I know all about Lotus. I know they are based in Norwich and I know all about the Proton connection. But considering that this was a “Thursday on the Thames” post, I wanted to find out where Norwich is, relative to the river Thames. So I googled.
Though Matchbox may have lost its English ownership over the years, the little orange rectangle brand has never lost its English heritage as we’ll see today. This Thursday on the Thames I’ve got six British two-doors, all with storied marques and historic lineages, five of which hail from the little Match in the Box!
These are the three best Beatles albums. Needless to say, I was stoked when I found out they would be part of the Beatles series, but not so stoked that I couldn’t find them.
This beast is the TVR Sagaris. It has a face of pure evil. It’s headlights are eyes that pierce your soul. It’s illegal in the United States. It’s also in 1:18 scale.
When it comes to jokes, it’s all about the delivery. And everybody knows that the British are famous for their comedy. Maybe that’s why they invented that most ubiquitous of delivery vehicles, the Ford Transit.

This has got to be THE best HW casting in recent memory.
A beautiful Lotus Evora in classic British Racing Green. Mmmhmmmmm.......
And only because I don’t want Androoo’s Harrods car to feel lonely.
The Vauxhall Cavalier and the Saab 9000. Two red, ‘90s saloons that couldn’t be more different. One is a dowdy British family sedan with German roots that came with a parts-bin four cylinder, and the other is Sweden’s sauciest hatchback on an Italian platform with some of the mightiest turbo-fours ever.
This could be a Swedish or Swiss Saturday too, I suppose, but I’ll go with the car’s country of origin. It’s also the first Le Mans car I’ve done in a month, appropriate to start leading up into that wonderful weekend in June that’s on my mind all year.
This little fella goes straight into the box, DLM is out of the question.
