Playing around with some awesome pairs, sets, and series’ of cars from multiple brands across myriad platforms for your viewing pleasure. (Pic heavy again...)

Today I finally found the second Mild To Wild series C3 Corvette, the ‘76 Greenwood.
I was infatuated with the deep red of the stock example and couldn’t wait to see which car they used for the second model.
I suppose I should’ve seen it coming, but I’ll admit that the pair looks great together!
I also found the SRT Charger Hellcat today. Here it is with it’s Challenger brother.
I decided at this point to photo some similar groups of cars. Here are some frugal hatchbacks from the early 80's.

Porsche’s 917K, the yellow being from the 2015 Porsche series and the blue from the 2015 Heritage Real Riders.
Hot haulin’, different ideas from different eras. 1967-1990.
It’s the Zamac ‘90 EF Civic and ‘67 Austin Mini.

These look very good without paint.
Here I ventured off on a dangerous tangent that had me searching my cases for my various Corgi cars. This isn’t all of them, but it is all of which I had the Hot Wheels counterpart to go with it.
This is the Jaguar XJ40 in HW form, and a Corgi police version acquired in the early-mid 90's.

Here are three separate Buick Regal police cars (1973-1975 ish). The HW is from the 1997 HW line, the middle Corgi was an early-mid 90's acquisition, and I got the blue one at a flea market.
The bases of the Regals.
I recently got my 1996 HW line 308 GTS from my parent’s house, and had to show it with it’s Corgi cousin.

It’s astonishing that the Corgi is in better shape. That 308 has many cedarchest miles though, presumably imagining cruising around Hawaii...

The green C4 Corvette from the 1996 HW line, with it’s long lost Corgi brethren.

It blows me away how little the cars changed entering the HW line. Definitely not a lose but a big win for us!
Engine bays are identical but the Corgi has a clear targa roof.

These are a pair of Ertl Chevrolets that I received back in the middle 90's.
‘63 Impala SS409 and ‘61 Impala SS409.
Immediately after the big tailfins disappeared, Chevrolet debuted some of the sleekest big body Impalas that we’ve seen to this day.

Both cars have opening trunks with spares.
No shortage of engine detail. Or vanity plates.
Ertl Impala bases.

Some cabriolets from Soma, an E30 323i and an Escort XR3i.
Dukes Of Hazzard’s Cadillac of Boss Hogg, along with the legendary “General Lee” Charger.

I also wanted to give another quick look at the recently completed Sunagon camper custom.
This was truly one of the most rewarding customs I’ve done to date!
I also realized that I didn’t post any comparison pics of my recent SV650 custom, so here’s the 1:18.....

.....and the 1:1. Enjoy!
