In my opinion, the more pedestrian the Skyline looks, the better. I like a good sleeper car. Unassuming and ready to kill at the green light. That’s how it should be done. This Tomica Skyline 2000 Turbo is all that and more. Another solid classic Tomica!
This is great stuff.
Naturally I had to bring out the rally Porsches, as well as the ski trip Polestar V60. Snow makes for such interesting lighting!
William Byron Xfinity Camaro and three ambulances.
I converted the MBX trailer to a sort of off road support rig.
Car #4 from my box of gems purchased at the Collectibles shop at the Rutland Vt. Mall. I know the 300ZX has been beaten to death by early diecast manufacturers but Maisto’s example is super clean! Look at that rear end? it’s perfect. Honestly, I think this is the best version of the 300zx ever recreated in diecast…
Here’s the Vantage after pulling it down from the pegs.
What you’re looking at it’s a Baha Chrysler Pacifica from HW coming soon. Filed under “sh*t I didn’t know I needed until it was right in front of me”
Every year without fail, I go to the Canadian International Auto Show. This year, I picked up something special.
First came the Aussie, then came the German.
Marcus is hooking it up! LaLD spirit lives on!
This time it’s the #98 Jim Robbins Special, a 1969 Ford Torino Talladega raced by LeeRoy Yarbrough. I built this from the HW Flames Torino on the shelf these days.
Super minty Lotus Elite. I love the 1:1 Elite and have a couple of them in my collection. But I never found a Tomica before. So, it was a no-brainer to pick this one up since the price was great. The gold button wheels look fantastic on this car. Tomica quality is just astounding.
finally getting the signs built for the diorama. Vdubyajohn helped out by sizing the signs to scale, and laying them out so i can print a bunch on one page.
Things can only get better as I learn the ins and outs.
M@@N Equipped JDM recently seen at Walmart:
Car #3 from my box of gems purchased at the Collectibles shop at the Rutland Vt. Mall. I am a sucker for stupid little hatchbacks. This Peugeot 205 ralley car had to come home with me. Rats! I just noticed now that the driver side trim is missing. haha! This sucker might get customized then...
Losing the cardboard wing restraints have led to the wing's droop getting worse. What's the solution to this? Hot water bath? I remember seeing a similar problem with the Car Culture Mazda 787B and that was one of the solutions being passed around.
A few nice goodies.
Saw this wagon with opening tailgate listed as part of a big lot of diecasts on craigslist and it is driving me nuts trying to ID it. Anyone know what this is and who made it?
