Last minute switch up! Today I have a 1:43 Jouef Evolution Ferrari 250 GT 61 “Tour of France” car. It’s the only 1:43 I own that isn’t a Honda lol.
It’s going to be a little bit harder to be a Toys’R’Us kid in the U.S. soon, as the toy retailer puts plans in motion to close up to 182 locations across the country as part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan.
For the silver theme, I’d like to showcase one of the best (in my opinion) 1/64 replicas of the GT-Rs, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Nismo by Tomica Limited Vintage Neo.
I had a hard time deciding on which car to post today. I went with one of my favorite HW castings!
Summer, No. S692, Rolls Royce, Made in Hong Kong.
The original Porsche GT2. The epitome of automotive design and mechanical perfection combined? It’s debatable but in my opinion Porsche checked all the right boxes on this one.
Being a massive R33 fan, how can I go on Car Week without re-featuring this beauty? The 400R...a rather special variant of the already powerful R33 GTR
Today’s selection comes by way of a model I haven’t shared yet. I recently acquired this Maisto 1/18 2000 Cadillac DeVille DTS in Galaxy Silver Metallic from Frosted the Boxy Car Guy on Oppo, so special thanks to him (and BlueMazda2 because without him I would have never known).
700HP and 553 lb-FTC of torque. That’s the mind numbing power coming from the Turbocharged 3.8L H6, that propels a 3241lb Car to 60 in less then 3 seconds.
Zee’s ability to nab the DeLorean diecast license from under Mattel’s nose will forever be remembered as one of the great diecast legends. While a little rough around the edges, they did a fine job recreating the infamous aluminum, gullwing, (sometimes time-traveling) DMC DeLorean.
I’m starting a weekly series of Lego F1 cars, and this is the first episode! The MP4-23 sure is a crazy-looking car, so it was extra fun to try and model it using Lego bricks, especially the nose and those rabbit ears.
I’m going out of town this afternoon, so unfortunately I won’t really have time to take new photos. So here are some regurgitated ones of a custom silver speedster I made a while back.
Car Week silver edition is upon us, time for a Tomica. I suspect some of my models aren’t the most relevant to younger collectors, but this car has plenty of fans even 30+ years later. Today we examine a vehicle that is a legend for many. This is Tomica 78-4, the Toyota Corolla Levin GTV. This casting entered the…
Another problematic day. Plenty of silver cars.
Not all Skylines are as exclusive and world conquering “Godzilla” GT-R, there are milder versions like the rear wheel drive only GT-T and the softer, family friendly 4-door sedan which in some countries are as disposable as a Camry. But imagine having the dull 4-door combined with the highly praised performance of the…
Some of you may remember my hatred for shooting black. Well, I might have a new arch enemy: Silver. Why? Because it’s so shiny/reflective some backgrounds make a car appear to be two-tone!
Because chrome is my favorite silver.
I figured, “hey, let’s put some pieces of wood on the diorama”. I thought it turned out pretty well. What do you guys think?
This is the Wood Brothers Racing Ford Taurus stock car, driven by Ricky Rudd in the 2003 NASCAR Winston Cup series. This livery celebrated Ford Motor Company’s centennial anniversary and is faithfully recreated by Team Caliber in 1/64 scale, a now defunct die-cast brand that primarily produced NASCAR replicas.
