I have no idea. I know it’s a car from Disney’s/Pixar’s Cars series but I can’t remember seeing them in the movie.
Once in a while I run into such an odd thing I just have to get it. Like this SLS. Some of you may know my love for it but running into any car showing it’s internals a bit will make me weak.
Once in a while I’m truly remembered I have too much of this stuff... I’ve shown this one before, I know, but the other one had it’s mirror broken of so I thought I’d get another one if I could.
I’ve shown the 964RS from Kyosho’s Porsche Minicar Collection VI before here. But I have a few of series V as well. Those came in more boring colors. Black, silver and white.
Okay, “Again?” I hear you think. Yes. Again. And the final one for me. Although I’m triggered to do a Fourgonnette as well. But as I’m enjoying some skiing as we speak I only have time to share a few shots of last weekend when I finished it anyway.
I don’t seem to have a lot of vintage stuff but at one day I got a bunch of Dinky Toys (1/43 re-release) for cheap that I showed casts from before. Like the BMW 1500 I showed during Shark week quite some time ago.
Darned. I hoped I’d be able to show it in it’s full finished glory. But I still need more appropriate bricks...
Last week I showed a Porsche 908 while I knew Philipilihp was gonna show a 907. And I didn’t have a 907. Or at least: I thought I didn’t. But I was wrong. And that’s a good eye-opener: I have too much casts. Probably.
In my youth there was only one capo di tutti anatre, one king of 2CVs, the Charleston. Stylish and you actually spotted a lot in ‘80's Holland. So of course I have a few of those.
Last week Philipilihp announced on Instagram he’d post a 1/43 Spark Porsche Rennwagen from the Piëch era today. So I really hope he’s keeping that promise and thought: Let’s join the fun a bit.
Abarth is for FIAT. Gordini is for Renault. The world is awesome in it’s simplicity. Right? Wrong. Because SIMCA worked with ‘m both. Actually, despite Gordini is known for his creations for Renault, he started at SIMCA. Henri Pigozzi, the guy producing FIATs in Nanterre and therefor creating SIMCA, recognized the…
Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh on the first gen X5, Rodeo Drive Traktor. But it was BMW’s first attempt for a SUV and we Europeans only follow trends set on the other side of the Atlantic years, maybe even decades later.
The French term Fourgonnette is all about a small delivery vans. And you’d always see many Fourgonnettes en France. Every single French manufacturer had a pretty small car turned into one. Citroën had to come up with one based on the 2CV. You might have seen some before.
Bit later today, too much stuff going on. Just leaving some AMG goodness here. I’ve covered both the G and the SLS before so go there for more info in general.
News on the 2018 LEGO Speed Champions sets! I’m gonna need a lot of these!!!!
Sorry. Excuse me. For putting up another post on the R5 Turbo by ChoroQ. But this time I added the blue and white ones. I simply can’t get enough of these. I might need help.
Last week I showed a Kyosho rendition on the 993 RS, today we’re seeing a newer generation (997) with a turbo on it from Kyosho as well: The 911 GT2RS.
As my collection consists of mainly French casts it’s no wonder I’ve covered this topic before. And before. And before. Well, I probably can’t even find ‘m all. But that last post is one of my favorite posts of 2016 as it’s about the Rally de Monte Carlo R5 Turbo of Jean Ragnotti.
Spotted last weekend at Interclassics Maastricht: Some will call it Sakrileg or sacrilege as this amazing clean 1969 LWB VW Typ 2 T2 (Car) Transporter is fitted with a watercooled Subaru flat four. And no, not a turbo’d STI unit, just a humble 74hp 1.8. Has air suspension, ready for action. They’re asking quite a lot…
A little while ago I was lucky enough to get a huge pile of Kyosho 1/64s from the Porsche Minicar Collection IV. And I realize I’ve shown way too little of these little gems.
