Since we’re going all Buzzfeed on LaLD today, I had to take advantage of all that clickbait and get my 2018 top-10 in as well!
A colleague of mine was vacationing in Hong Kong and picked up a new addition to my collection. A Hong Kong ice cream truck.
Is this the new Japan Historics? Looking at the price on Wheelcollectors, can’t send a SOS to sister to place an eBay order (like I’ve been doing on recent Car Culture sets) either when all I want is that McLaren and perhaps that Mustang.
Another hidden treasure from my storage revealed on my 186th post with the ‘50s Chevy Truck by Hot Wheels from their Ultra Hots series.
I have a love/hate relationship with resin models. I hate them because I want my cars to open, but I love them because cars that typically will never see the light of day in diecast are often made in resin. One such example is this Volkswagen Passat R36 wagon. Otto initially released this model in my favorite color,…
Playing catch-up...got some cool stuff to cover.
I know these were hard to find for some. Found these at Kroger today (with my second super in two days!) Cost plus shipping, dizzygti@gmail if interested.
Hey LaLD- it’s been awhile. To make a long story short, over the past year or so, I’ve gradually lost interest in diecast collecting. However, I probably have over six hundred cars, and the majority have little sentimental value or of limited interest. As such, I’ve decided to sell a large grouping of them, as they’re…
I grew up watching the batman animated series right next to the classic 60's version, because I am a 90's kid. Tim Burton’s batmobile was cool, but the btas version was basically what I wanted in a car at 10 years old.
A few years ago, when the Deltawing was still racing, they were selling 1:43-ish models of it at the Petit Le Mans. Limited run of 350, all numbered. I looked at one and saw the price: $200. No way in hell I was buying that.
As we’re nearing Christmas I am finding more treasures from the past and on my 185th post is the ‘48 Ford Woody under the Wagon Wheels series from Hot Wheels.
I couldn’t find either of the colors I wanted in store. However, when I saw “Fifties Aqua”, I had an even better alternative! For my first time, I’m happy! This picture was my fourth and final attempt. Not having an airbrush makes not overdoing it hard.
I went to Target today and got:
This little guy started life as an afterthought in an eBay lot of unloved diecasts. The no-name Hong Kong casting is crude, lacks detail, and was in bad shape. However, the shape was perfect.
Well now this was an interesting find over the weekend
Hi fellas. Fell off the face of the earth and now I’m back again. I’ve picked up a few cars from unexpected places and I’ll share them in due time.
A new casting I managed to get my hands on. I love GT racing, and the have more coming. MiniGT by TSM is also coming out with the Ford GTE and the 911 RSR, soon and the NSX GT3 is already out. Check out that carbon fiber :D
By now, we’re all pretty well acquainted by fully operational concept cars inspired by the legendary Gran Turismo video game series. Bugatti, Nissan, and Mercedes-Benz have all created showstopper, game inspired cars over the past few years. This model here is of the Citroen collaboration with the developers of the…
Red Xmas bins at Wally had fresh case dumps.
