My first post for this LaLD Rennsport Reunion: a classic 1971 Porsche 911.
A buddy from instagram requested my collaboration on one of his “Shaved” Porsche 993s a while back. It started as a Hotwheels Porsche 993 that had its front and rear spoilers removed. Then it was sent to me to do whatever I pleased. I painted this piece in a multi step process....1: the bare metal was polished to a…
Just a quick entry to this one. I went from having no 911s to having five in the blink of an eye. And now I totally get the appeal of these little bug-eyed beauties.
Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before, but I’ve recently obtained a beautiful classic racecar that’s part of the new Hot Wheels lineup, and... yeah, you guessed it, it’s the Porsche 917! Made famous from its appearance in Le Mans, as in, the movie named Le Mans about the 24 Hours of Le Mans…
My first entry for the Rennsport themed week is Hot Wheel’s take on one of the cars from the wildest age of Le Mans, a time when manufacturers attempted to outdo each other in their attempts to bypass the rulebook.
Hot Wheels 100% red box
I’m 40. Oh geez. Look at that stupid number. So stupid. Stupid pointy 4 and dopey round 0. I hate you both.
Best looking mainline release of this casting? I think so.
The Hitler Reacts meme has been my very favorite thing on the internet for years. Something about the petty rage set against the grandest stakes in history just tickles me to no end.
Hey guys, I’m AR24-7! So I’ve been a follower and commenter for a while now, and I am just now getting some time to make my first post about my collection! So anyway, let’s get to what you’re really here for; the cars. And if you have any questions comments, or advice, feel free to comment down below! (There is…
I finally got my cruiser finished and not one speeder all morning.
This is the first time I’ve been able to actually get an item with my RLC membership (aside from the membership car). I think Mattel has finally learned their lesson: that 3k and 6k production runs and letting people get two per person right off the bat wasn’t such a good idea when they sold over 17k RLC memberships.…
Porsche 918 by Hot Wheels.
As if I needed an excuse to DLM this.
In 1968, the Hot Wheels brand came out swinging with the famous Sweet 16 set of 1/64 diecast toy race cars, and with a track set to match for high-speed play, the bar was set massively high for 1969. Not just for their rival, the previously dominant Matchbox, but for themselves. With Harry Bentley Bradley, the…
If this is legit, then I’ll be spending a lot of my hunting time in my local Publix stores!
I didn’t have enough time to address the base or interior. There’s always next year.
Yes, I associate the Porsche 911 with Michael Bolton, but in a good way.
Not much sun today.
Since I went down south for another family visit, it only seemed fitting that I bring some old cars back with me. Again, this isn’t all of the old collection, but it’s a pretty good hawl all the same.
