I had a bit of a mail call this week. I’m really impressed by the Charger Daytonas from Ertl and their opening trunk feature. Anyway, this fed my muscle car appetite... for now;) Oh, and I made a shovel, too:D I wanna start making some more things in 1/64 scale. I’ve always been fascinated with miniatures.
Just a harmless little fish called a Barracuda :D
You know Kowalski is a happy camper, just by looking at what’s in the garage. Mopar or no car.
So, I put a warning sign on the abandoned boardwalk. aaaand... Pagani :D
On one my trips to see Toys R Us before its demise, I bought a 6-car 1/64 display case for super cheap. It was from Auto World, which I didn’t know was a diecast maker. We were just discussing this on the podcast, which is when I found out it was a pretty good brand.
Do we not see too much Auto World, here on LaLD? I find them to be very nice. I’d even venture to say that they are the nicest American diecast cars. I recently found a few on the pegs:
My weapon of choice for Forced Induction Friday is a 2011 Hennessy Camaro with a 700HP LS9 crammed in the engine bay. This particular mode comes to us from Auto World and was on the cover of Road and Track Magazine as the first LS9 swapped Camaro. I love the details that AW did with this one the color and the stripes…
Well, I should have quit die-cast completely for the year after my massive HAWL from Japan. Alas, that’s not how addictions work! First up, this trio of Auto Worlds. This is the best version of the Kingswood Estate by a mile in my opinion.
Moving towards the newer Johnny Lightning releases, let’s head over to my 156th post with their latest Muscle Cars USA.
Whoops! How did that sneak in here?
every time I tried to look for those elusive Car Culture?
Today seems to be my unlucky day when it comes to this, more on that after the break. My submission for today is this fine 1/64 1975 Cadillac Coupe deVille by AutoWorld. Like the DeVille from yesterday, this little thing ticks all of my boxes in pure strangeness of what it represents, as well as the intricate details…
It’s beautiful. Heavy. Detailed. With gold wheels!
Cutting it close here. I picked up the Gulf gas station at TRU. Here is one of my favorites the Red Autoworld GT40.
“Hell hath no Fury...like a 1958 Plymouth” - tagline for the 1983 movie, CHRISTINE.
As you may be able to tell from my posts, I’m a huge fan a TV and movie cars. One of the most iconic movie cars is a ah, blood red Plymouth Fury named Christine. If you’re not familiar with the movie, it revolves around a 1958 Plymouth Fury that is basically evil incarnate, and possesses its owners — all of which end…
While cruising through the isle of a Wal-Mart the other day it struck me just how many different 1/64th scale cars are out there. The “Hot Wheels isle” is LOADED with cars ranging from the basic .94 cent Hot Wheels line, all the way up to the $6 AutoWorld castings — and everything in between. I noticed that the most…
On my 147th post is the ‘69 Chevy Kingswood Estate by Auto World.
It’s been nearly a year, but I previously wrote a bit about a non die-cast segment of my collection- the trading cards that some companies have included with their castings from time to time. In that post, I teased a part two. I know it’s almost been a year since that post, but hey, I said it might be a while!
In the last 24hrs. This is what ive captured so far.
