Big things with little cars

I’ve been getting a lot of budget diecasts from the 70's and 80's. These are some of my favorite finds. I bought these all with the intention of restoring them, but a couple are too cool to tear down and rebuild.

Porsche 910s: Orange one by Yatming, Blue one by Xylmex. Yatming 910 only loosely looks like a 910 (which never ran with 917 fins). Xylmex 910 is a very nice model.

Porsche 917K: Yatming. Outstanding model with a Gulf/STP paint scheme. Maybe the nicest 917 of it’s era. Was going to restore at first, but now I’ll keep as-is.
