The polls are now closed and the numbers have been crunched, here are your winners from last week!
I’ve broken it down a couple of different ways: Winners by Scale, Winners by Day, and Best of Show winners by Scale across the whole week. The rules were simple: posts with the most stars would win; ties would be settled by number of comments. We also have some very special accolades down at the bottom!

Comeback Kid: Te71 Xin
It had been far too long since we had seen this longtime LaLDer around these parts, but Te71 Xin took LaLD Car Week by storm. While only participating in three out of the seven days, all three cars secured scale class wins in their respective days.
Most Fun Post: Jonee’s Messerschmitt
Who hear can argue with TFritch? If he wants a special award, we’ll get it done. How fun are Messerschmitts, not to mention racing Messerschmitts. Jonee picked not only a unique car, but in a unique scale, and presented that model in quite possibly the most fun way possible. The photo of the car on a coin return lever on a pay phone really shows just how tiny this model really is. Well done Jonee!
In addition, the Messerschmitt gets the award for Best Oddball Scale as picked by Frosted!
Best Teaser: Enginerrrrrr’s TVR - 20 stars
We had a ton of exciting teaser posts in the weeks leading up LaLD Car Week, but none got us more excited than that Sagaris silhouette shot by Enginerrrrrrr
Best Variety: AlienProbe, nate13, baloney, and k-tech217
These guys brought the heat, and also mixed it up so well that you’d never know what they were bringing the next day. These guys were all handpicked by Philipilihp.

Also stay tuned for a special edition of Who Killed it This Week? with all the most liked pics shared to Instagram last week!
That just about does it my diecasting friends. Your friendly LaLD mods and I are cooking up some more weekly events for later in the year. This was a ton of fun and I hope you all enjoyed it!
