It’s a been time since I’ve added any new 1:64 Auto World pieces into my collection, largely due to how they’re not sold in my region. When I was looking to trade away my green machine Hemi Cuda, The Bell King made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
I recently received two GT3 RS models and two Bentley GT cars (saving those for later) from Sparky, and I love em! However, I also ruined a Majorette 918 Spyder Prototype while trying to add detail, so I decided I would grab another one (aaaaand i messed that up, too. can you tell??) and the ruined one would become…
I really like the job Auto World did with this casting. I sure hope they do the C7... or at least add to their catalogue!
Just a few shots of some of the Fords in my collection. I believe Greenlight makes the best Ford GT in 1/64 scale. Mini GT by TSM is coming out with a 1/64 line and in it will be the GTE version of this car. I can’t wait for that!
A little bit of everything in this update! First up, I was finally able to get this STH Baja Tundra after trading it for a STH ‘52 Chevy I found in a grocery store. Eureka!
Just a couple of giant American coupes on this Memorial day. On the left is a 1977 Lincoln Continental by Neo Scale Models and on the right is a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado by Auto World.
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.
