Suburban Sundays: A Trio of Brown CUVs Suburban Sundays: A Trio of Brown CUVs

Hey LaLD! Today I’ve decided to try a new theme day. As you’ve probably noticed, a large portion of my 1:64 scale collection revolves around the delightfully mundane and everyday; thus, I propose that we have Suburban Sundays! This will be a showcase of all the cars that are average enough to be not particularly…

Wagon Wednesday: Euro Wagons of the '90s Wagon Wednesday: Euro Wagons of the '90s

The station wagon is a body style that is increasingly associated with luxury marques and segments in America today, but its roots obviously harken back to the days of rudimentary practicality and outright load-lugging capacity.

Speaking of Acquisitions - Opel GT Kit Speaking of Acquisitions - Opel GT Kit

This gem (not my picture, as mine is currently buried beneath stuff I put away while my hardwood floors are laid) was my christmas present. I'm super excited to start building it, and, for ease of use, it's even already molded in yellow. It even comes with three different engine options, a carbureted 4-cyl., a…

Teutonic Tuesday- Die Autobahn! Teutonic Tuesday- Die Autobahn!

About a decade ago, Matchbox's premium line was simply dubbed Superfast. Us collectors refer to it as "New Superfast" to avoid confusion with the original Superfast cars from decades past.
