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.
A well known Aston owned by an informative yet funny weirdo. I completely forgot I had this car, I only remembered my orange one that resembles closely to the N400 edition but not this silver one. It took me awhile to figure out that I picked it up for a friend who was into Aston Martins, but after graduating high…
Coinciding with TotT, I present the second of the three colours of the Lotus Exige of the Kyosho Lotus collection series, yellow.
What happens when you have a slow day at the office, a Firesand Orange Metallic MBX F-Type on your desk, and regular and fine-tip black Sharpies? This:
Today started out dark & rainy, and I’ve been meaning to take the old TR out for a rip in the country and down to the banks of the Thames... But the old girl looks so clean in the garage, perhaps a few beauty shots first.
Thanks for the advice vinwin and diecastphotography! I think this new lens is exactly what I was after.
I’ve let the cat out of the bag.
