The Ford Mustang is an American icon loved by many. Starting in 1964, in a half model year, the original Mustang sold beyond the projected sales numbers within the first three months it was on sale! Available with a straight six or a V8, and a manual transmission, the original Mustang was truly a bundle of fun.
As soon as I saw this guy on the pegs I knew I had to have it.
After a long hiatus, I just recently finished three Japanese-themed cars.
I don’t need to explain to anyone here that historic Trans Am is my jam. Combine road racing with my absolute favorite Mustang body style, the 1969 model year, then make a car in one of the best available colors out there, and you have the recipe for one of my all-time favorite cars.
This custom GT350R by Philiphilip turned out amazing. I simply suggested that he do a custom for our HWEP and he dreamed this bad boy up (and executed it perfectly.) Together with the Zamac custom Boss 302 by IGer @socaldiecast562, I’m left speechless. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Greenlight has a licensing deal for the cars of John Wick. This includes John’s 1969 Boss 429 (well, canonically at least, certainly looks like a Mach 1 to me) and the 1970 Chevelle SS 396 he is loaned. As a fan of the series, this is definitely something I’m keeping an eye out for. Hopefully Hamleys here brings this…
Have a great weekend!
I rarely do post on a Monday as I have few American cars. This weekend however I was surprised by my lovely 4-year old daughter. As at a thrift shop I went to for some LP records she dove in a big pile of old little diecasts.
I kind of discover this by accident while taking a picture of my display.
Here is a restoration done by BaremetalHW on a HW Redline 1968 Custom Mustang. This is a very valuable model, and required much work with high quality materials, such as the paint used. The end result is amazing! Enjoy!
Yay! Finally found this 2005 Ford Mustang by Hot Wheels, and it’s a bummer. Not the casting (I love the fact that it has that ‘retractable’ chin spoiler) but rather it’s a defect. But I’ll just post the pictures anyway. Awesome job by Hot Wheels... Should have added this retractable chin spoiler on the Corvette C7…
If you intend to turn your kids into Ford fanatics long before they could drive cars, Lego’s latest sets are not bad for birthday present ideas.
In honor of Movie Monday, I am posting one of my favorite car chase movie cars — the original Gone in 60 Seconds (GI60S from here on out) 1973 Ford Mustang “Mach 1”, code-named Eleanor.
Only the white #11 is finished. The rest are WIPs.
From the Black and white challenge back in october...i think
