Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Spent most of Saturday working on the 1:1 Jeep. Afternoon grocery run meant an opportunity excuse to visit a couple of indoor flea markets. I was surprised to find a transitional superfast Ford Truck. The front grille is missing, but shouldn’t be too hard to replace if I can find a donor truck.

I’m not a huge Ferrari guy, but color combo on this one is too glorious to pass up.

While the zee toys minty Kandy Van is an excellent find... I am most excited about the train wreck Ford EXP. It’s going to need some work to resto-mod it back to glory. But I am totally going to make it happy again. After a bit of searching... this is the ONLY nice casting of the forgotten Ford EXP ever made. Ertl also had their own version of the car, but the proportions are awful. This is actually a really nice casting under all the warts and damage.
