This is a mere Hot Wheels, and the first one I’ve shown for Car Week. However, it’s purple, and it’s a car that no one else has since it’s one of my customs!
It’s beautiful. Heavy. Detailed. With gold wheels!
1/64 by Kyosho.
This is the 2003 Subaru Impreza WRC driven by the Finnish team of Tommi Mäkinen and co-driver Kaj Lindström in Rally Great Britain.
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.
Up until Friday I had planned on bringing my McLaren F1 GTR by Kyosho.
Then I got my package from Taiwan, and everything changed.
CM’s Rally Subaru. 1/64.
I haven’t installed all the antennas yet. But I will! I just had to shoot something when I pulled it out.
But I can’t read the boxes.
Some of you may have seen this little set before, or perhaps you own it yourself. I came across it at BMW’s Zentrum here in South Carolina. My Dad and I went to the BMW Car Club of America Foundation’s exhibit, Heroes of Bavaria. It was a fantastic show! I don’t think I’ve shared most of my photos from there . . .
Most of us have these two, but I haven’t seen many images of them together. So here they are! They’re a great pairing and would go well together in some multi-millionaire’s garage.
Here’s a little Then & Now assemblage of my own. It’s a pretty nice little grouping!
I’ve kept my eyes open for a Bullitt Mustang if I ever chanced upon one. This one was hanging at ToysRUs a week or two ago, so I picked it up. It’s nice, and definitely something I want to have in my collection. This one is from Greenlight.
Here’s my collection of white Porsches! I have a number of others in different colors, but I love seeing all these white ones together.
Here’s my first shoot of the new GT40's on my diorama. I mainly focused on the race winner this time. A new backdrop would be nice, so I’m toying with some ideas. Preferably something a little less labor-intensive and also easier to store than this 4' diorama!
You did know I love GT40s, right?
It’s good. Very good! Here it is at my desk at work with a few of my customs and a drawing from my son. I picked up 3 of them for future customs!
I love McLarens! This orange 12C GT3 is the latest addition to my British stable.
Ford’s new GT is one of my all-time favorite cars. The shape is exciting, futuristic, and totally unique. Yet it retains its heritage and builds upon its history. Iterations of the GT are few and far between. They’ve hit this one out of the park!
As far as I am aware, these are all three versions of the Bugatti Type 57C Cabriolet produced by Hot Wheels. If there are any I’ve missed, please let me know!
