The original Porsche GT2. The epitome of automotive design and mechanical perfection combined? It’s debatable but in my opinion Porsche checked all the right boxes on this one.
Being a massive R33 fan, how can I go on Car Week without re-featuring this beauty? The 400R...a rather special variant of the already powerful R33 GTR
Today’s selection comes by way of a model I haven’t shared yet. I recently acquired this Maisto 1/18 2000 Cadillac DeVille DTS in Galaxy Silver Metallic from Frosted the Boxy Car Guy on Oppo, so special thanks to him (and BlueMazda2 because without him I would have never known).
700HP and 553 lb-FTC of torque. That’s the mind numbing power coming from the Turbocharged 3.8L H6, that propels a 3241lb Car to 60 in less then 3 seconds.
Zee’s ability to nab the DeLorean diecast license from under Mattel’s nose will forever be remembered as one of the great diecast legends. While a little rough around the edges, they did a fine job recreating the infamous aluminum, gullwing, (sometimes time-traveling) DMC DeLorean.
I’m going out of town this afternoon, so unfortunately I won’t really have time to take new photos. So here are some regurgitated ones of a custom silver speedster I made a while back.
Another problematic day. Plenty of silver cars.
Not all Skylines are as exclusive and world conquering “Godzilla” GT-R, there are milder versions like the rear wheel drive only GT-T and the softer, family friendly 4-door sedan which in some countries are as disposable as a Camry. But imagine having the dull 4-door combined with the highly praised performance of the…
Some of you may remember my hatred for shooting black. Well, I might have a new arch enemy: Silver. Why? Because it’s so shiny/reflective some backgrounds make a car appear to be two-tone!
Because chrome is my favorite silver.
This is the Wood Brothers Racing Ford Taurus stock car, driven by Ricky Rudd in the 2003 NASCAR Winston Cup series. This livery celebrated Ford Motor Company’s centennial anniversary and is faithfully recreated by Team Caliber in 1/64 scale, a now defunct die-cast brand that primarily produced NASCAR replicas.
1/64 by Kyosho.
You know I couldn’t do Car Week without a GT-R.
As my Instagram profile says, I am a Formula One fan torn between Mercedes and McLaren. And so for Silver Day, the fourth day of the LaLD Car Week 2018, I present to you the Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid.
Because it’s no silver bullet! My first 1:1 was a black one, so years ago when I saw MBX made one, I HAD to pick it up. Here it is bone stock on its first safari. I hope you enjoy!
An all time favourite of mine, the Porsche 911 Gt1 straßenversion and oh was I so spellbound when I first saw that Kyosho had made one in 1:64 scale for their Beads Collection line that I knew I had to have one!
Controversy is a spice of life, much like sex, intrigue, conflict and variety. The model car I’m about to show you is seasoned with such spice in real life, but is, on its own, a standout casting, one that I think is the new yardstick not just for the brand that makes it, but for models priced in the basic range.
Hello again, and welcome to Blue day! In 2012, Acura created a concept with the promise of amazing design. The legendary NSX was returning, and for the first time in more than a decade. Hot Wheels captures the essence of that concept in a thrilling 1:64 blue model with a silver racing stripe and bunch of detailed…
This is the Siku VW 1200 that started it all. I probably had VW toys when I was growing up, but this one was the beginning of my VW collection. It was a gift, and I was told “It’s battered a bit, but not as bad as yours...” meaning my ‘62 blue Beetle (the condition of which we won’t get into here...).
It still has…
Did you really expect me to post anything different today? By far my biggest and best accomplishment in the world of small cars to date. It’s probably responsible for the highest amount of foot traffic for a single post on this site, mods correct me if I’m wrong.
