Got this for cheap on eBay, and thought I had stumbled into an unlucky seller with too low a reserve. But it really doesn’t appear to have all that much value. Why is that? It’s a nice piece. And unlike my other cars, I actually want to leave this packaged just because the package itself is really attractive.
This is another of the cars that I wanted to have for a long time - the Jaguar E-Type. Particularly in this very color - British Racing Green. I do have one by Matchbox, but at 1:43 and at this price, this is quite something else!
This is Dan, I’ve been out of town on business, so I fell behind and I’ve now published “And Tubbed” featuring Bradley Brownell from Cammed and Tubbed, as well as Jalopnik.
Where’re the gleaming cam covers? What about the polished intake manifolds? Nope. None of that in this 1:18 Jaguar XJ-S from AUTOart. Isn’t that a terrifying sight? A myriad of vacuum lines and wiring with a V12 somewhere underneath all that. A mechanic’s nightmare had it been a real 1:1 – thank goodness I don’t have…
I graduated from high school in 1984. I lived through the Radwood era, defined now as being from the 80s to the 90s. My version was loosely based on Alex P. Keaton. Think preppy. Very preppy. No tacky weird colored sweaters. Cashmere, wool, suits, double-breasted, wool. Fine wool. Leather shoes reminiscent of My Three…
So for the final day of “ze” car week I have one of my favourite cars from me collection.
Hello everyone! In our kitchen is an ex-Corgi casting of the Jaguar XJ40, now with a low ride height and gold MC5 wheels. The grille and interior were painted black as well.
I have seen this casting in a few other colors/color combinations, but this one is the first one that really caught my eye enough to bring home.
I just realised I had this Majorette F-type. Found it hidden somewhere in my drawers lol
A couple of weeks ago, I’d asked if there was anyone here from Thailand. I had an upcoming vacation and I was wondering where to look in Thailand to pick up a few die-cast cars.
Though Matchbox may have lost its English ownership over the years, the little orange rectangle brand has never lost its English heritage as we’ll see today. This Thursday on the Thames I’ve got six British two-doors, all with storied marques and historic lineages, five of which hail from the little Match in the Box!
The big cat. The Jaguar XJS coupe.
Finally found me some Majorettes last week, so I picked up the three pack containing a Renault Twingo, Alfa Romeo 4C Spyder, and this orange Jaguar F-Type, which just so happens to be one of the prettiest cars on the road today.
What happens when you have a slow day at the office, a Firesand Orange Metallic MBX F-Type on your desk, and regular and fine-tip black Sharpies? This:
I’ve let the cat out of the bag.
Yes, today’s my birthday! I turn 25, and I’ve reached the quarter-life point in my life. A milestone, anyway. Just want to share a little “party” of some of my cars. This green F1 car below is by Hot Wheels. It is the 2002 Jaguar Racing (remember them?) R3 with pit crew. I don’t think these HW F1 cars get any love, so…
A very cool F type Jaguar from our friends at Matchbox, cool color, it makes the black bits pop... I think I had left this casting on the pegs before because I never liked the colors they offered.
