Sorry guys: Shortest French Friday ever but I’ve got a reason! I’m preparing for a very short trip to meet a few fellow Opponauts/Kinjamen at... Le Mans Classic! So enjoy this Alpine A450b #36 that competed in the 2015 24h of Le Mans 2015, driven by Nelson Panciatici, Paul-Loup Chatin and Vincent Capillaire. An all…
Always love that Mini SL, the 190SL. The R121 was presented as an attractive, more affordable alternative to the exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, sharing its basic styling, engineering, detailing, and fully independent suspension.
Just paging VDH Customs here for French Friday! As I’m packing up my end of the deal: Do you want the HY regular or Pompiers?
Late for the party, finally a new cast/shoot! This is tiny, it’s a 1/87 by Spark.
With Fintail showing a plethora of Japanese ‘80' stuff I thought I’d tag along a bit. So here’s that early ‘80's boxy R30 2000 GT Turbo. With a #ghostrider apparently. And for the music I add a little Soul II Soul: Back to Life. Related as it was in that epic ‘80's movie Black Rain. That sparked my love for Japanese…
I know: Technically already available in the ‘70's but in the ‘80's Alpine got wicked with adding displacement, a wing and wider fenders. And it’s the Alpine I grew up to love: being an ‘80's kids I suppose it counts!
I’d like to do something like I did last Tuesday but with French casts. And yet I fail as I really don’t have that much Le Mans cars from France?
Still recovering from an overload of automotivity last weekend. Celebrating the win for Toyota a bit, but for Porsche’s GT-class win a bit more. Curious what will happen with LMP1.
Dead curious to see if Toyota can finally manage to win this one. I think they somewhat deserve it for being persistent and the odds seem okay with a #1 and #2 on the starting grid. I fail miserable in the current Le Mans cars so you’ll have to do with this oldie. Contender in 1989, probably with a different livery ;-)
Yeah I know, Le Mans is coming... But I still have to show you all this one. Although I think someone beat me to it. I mentioned it showing the DS23 as well so here it goes...
As Philipilihp told already, I was wondering about the sizes on Minichamps64 and TLVs 911s as the old swb 911S by Tomica appeared not that smaller than a MC64 997. All this last weekend on Instagram.
I know, I missed French Friday last week. Sorry. Then again, I added a ‘Murica Monday so... And it’s not often I miss it. So...
Last week I showed the amazing 356 VDH Customs sent me. This week I’ll show another one of his gems: a 964.
A total unicorn in my collection. I know little about NASCAR. Or actually about the American market in general. And yet this one totally blew me away. Why? As it just dropped into my mailbox and has quite the details for a 1/64! Or is it?
Didn’t somebody mention he missed all those customized 356 at LaLD? Well, I was lucky enough to receive an epic package from my logistics centre Springfield USA that contained...
No 7-series today. No Recycling either! A bit of a suprise: A totally new model! It is a Neue Klasse, I did some of those on day 2, but after I announced on Instagram ///May week was coming fellow Instagrammer and local BMW nut @denniselbers (owning both an M10 E21 and an M20 E12!) came to the rescue!
I know it’s day 6 of ///May week but it’s the 5th day of the week and “E” is the 5th letter of the alphabet. So it goes. The E1.
The Benchmark. That’s what the automotive press named every single M5 generation. I only was lucky enough to try the F10 from Motorsport but that one wasn’t nearly as impressive as that E92 M3. I’d probably rather try an M5 from the E60 generation. Why?
Finally, no #loophole or #recycleweek needed. As for the 4th day I actually have a cast I haven’t shown before!
To many there’s only one M3: The first one. Having driven an E92 quite intensively I’m not that narrow-minded but when it comes to the looks the E30 is the one to beat! Probably has something to do with being at an age you actually were around when the E30 was the thing to beat anyway...
