Alfa Romeo conquered the DTM with a car built to the Class 1 regulations, the Italians sweeping both the drivers’ and makes’ titles. And it wasn’t because the competition was weakened by the withdrawal of BMW and Audi, either. Rather, the experience the team had gained with the World Rally programme provided the…
To bring you a post from your superior Italian brethren**
I found the whole Euro Speed set at Target the other day and these were the two that came with me! The livery on the M1 is just fantastic.
I guess it’s up to me.
The enjoyment of cars is, of course, a total sensory experience. The smell of gas/petrol, burning rubber, hot brakes, materials inside the car, the feel of polished metal, a wrench handle, the alcantara-wrapped steeringwheel (in the case of the ballers among us), the sight of the landscape whizzing by, the sound of…
I don’t know much about this car, other than it’s beautiful and I had to add it to my collection. This is a 1/64 by Kyosho. It also came in red or black. I fell in love with the white version though.
I suppose it’s better late than never, though it will probably hurt me in the polls. It’s still Spaghetti Sunday here, so this is an mostly red car for your consideration.
The stash from Ck Model Cars finally came home yesterday with my friend who is here on a vacation. Originally I thought that it was a mistake to splurge like this, but on hindsight, with the kind of deal I got (with flat shipping), I can’t think of even one of these that I wouldn’t want in my collection. And I am so…
For my 135th post we will be looking at the last Car Culture.
I recently found out Alfa Romeo had an amazing little van, so I obviously ran to the Google oracle to see if there were diecast models of it. I’m not disappointed. These are so cute, I want them all!
I got some new wheels in the mail Friday and of course I needed to put them to good use right away!
For me, one of the best castings ever made by Matchbox. The colors, the tampos, everything’s perfect! Plus, what could possibly go wrong with an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA?
I had gotten some 787Bs out of storage to shoot with my new Tomica Limited Vintage 787B earlier this week. I happened to have a slew of New Superfast in the same box, so I figured I’d give them some attention as well!
Last week I showed Choro-Q’s Giulia and SimplifyThenAddLightness - I Hope Your Speed Over The Rival immediately jumped on it: He had quite the iterations of Choro-Q’s Lancia Stratos. I have only one, this venomous lime green, but be sure to see quite some of these today!
If you know me, you know that I adore the Alfa Romeo Giulia. I was probably one of the first of Oppokind to drive and review one, and it was an event which has stuck with me since. I yearn for the day they hit the used market so I can pick one for cheap (I don’t care about the apparent reliability issues). So,…
Last night I was looking for a car to shoot so I could post something today, and saw the 1:18 AutoART (AUTOart? I always forget...) Alfa Romeo GTam, and its 1:43 counterpart.
Buon Giorno Tutti! This was one of those opportunities I had to jump on. The Alfa Romeo BAT7. In 1/43 by Bizarre. And bizarre it is! Diecast Select had it in their clearance sale but wouldn’t ship to Europe so I had the Springfield Diecast Logistics center take care of it. So a big grazie to you Philipilihp!
I took these photos on Saturday when it was beautiful outside, with every intention of posting them Sunday. But that didn’t happen, so here we are on Monday. And I still want to post them!
Happy Spaghetti Sunday!
