The 80s were a somewhat dark time for American horsepower. Most V8s were pushing 150 or maybe less. Then Buick said to hell with the V8s, lets take a V6 and marry a beefy turbo to it. The result? The Buick Gran National. Pushing about 240 horses and later 276+ in the GNX....it was a mighty sleeper if there ever was…
Sorry, I was a little late and I was active on the 2nd day. Because I have a lot of other photos and my school. 😅 I’m here this week now. Guess which car is in order?
I don’t have a ton of 6-cylinder vehicles in my collection. I certainly have some cool Porsches, but I figured y’all would have those covered. I had planned to feature a Grand National today, but the snow we received this morning (go home mother nature, you’re drunk!) inspired me to choose the AWD Syclone instead.
The polls are now closed and the numbers have been crunched, here are your winners from last week!
I know I’m a little late on this one. But hopefully you’ll understand why.
Due to political discrimination, I have voluntarily left Live and Let Diecast. If you have any questions or comments, you can also reach out to me via DM on Instagram @ep3_lol.
We’re in the final hours of this year’s car week. Our west coast comrades still have a chance to post something up before I officially call it closed.
Due to a drastically changed work schedule this week I totally dropped the ball on purple day and couldn’t make up my mind on what I wanted to post for today....so here’s some randomness for wildcard day.
Oh man! Early work day and I almost forgot to post! Literally ran out of bed to get to my computer to post this!
It’s fitting that the end of Car Week is Wildcard Day. This post has been over a year in the making. It’s a bit overwhelming looking at all of them together & goseeing the culmination of an overly ambitious plan. Check the captions for the details behind all four 1969 Boss 302 customs.
My wildcard entry for Car Week! This one arrived right on time for the Car Week finale; 1:64 Action Racing Joey Logano Mustang (#22). My first NASCAR model, and quite a good one to start off with I suppose. I will let the photos speak louder in this one, after almost a week of features with a large number of words.
I’m back, just in time for the last day! My entry of sorts is a 1/18 Kyosho BMW E63 M6 finished in Sepang Bronze Metallic, known more commonly as metallic brown.
For today’s wild card color day, I choose to show off a new addition to my diecast fleet. This Toyota Celica is absolutely the most photogenic car I have ever shot. It just looks incredible from all angles. Once again, Tomica just knocks it out of the park with the details and overall quality of the car. Snappy doors,…
So for the final day of “ze” car week I have one of my favourite cars from me collection.
Look at that beautiful white Lamborghini Aventador Micro Machine!! Oh wait..
I had it all planned out... photos outside, rescue mission, smashed cars, everything! Alas, Chicago hast dampened mine royal enthusiasm with thee sun’s refusal to show its face. So, I told the towing company to come to the DoD Garage and let’s do the best we can:D The zamac Porsche is for reference.
