Clownshoe Clownshoe

Amore Omori! Amore Omori!

Ottomobile dangles a JDM treat in front of us every month. Last month, it was the Omori Factory “Grand Touring Car”, a restored R33 GT-R with a host of NISMO upgrades. A perfect companion to the “Clubman Race Spec” R34 GT-R that Otto released a couple years prior.

The coolest R8. Even cooler in Suzuka Grey.

Concept Cars Concept Cars

The culprit behind my latest splurge was a slew of Easter sales over at American Excellence. I sifted through pages of discounted models and found a few BoS Models that piqued my interest, despite having next to no knowledge of concept cars. At half-off their original prices, though, these were too good to pass up.…

A Year of Finds A Year of Finds

We’re ten days in and I’m still here posting about 2018 things. Nonetheless, I’d like to give some attention to some of the older models that I’ve been fortunate enough to snatch. Old is relative, because some of these are actually still in production/readily available today. I know there’s a few 1:18'ers here that…

Top 18 of '18, Part 2 Top 18 of '18, Part 2

I try to display as many of my cars as possible, but with the 1:18's eating up shelf space, the 1:64's end up being neglected. I buy them, open them, and stash them away in Jammer cases only to never be seen again. For once, I have the opportunity to give the small cars the shine that they deserve. Here are my top…

Another year of hoarding fake cars is in the books. It’s time to round them up and figure out which ones are the real keepers.

I usually don’t do posts like this, but I got so excited that I had to share these here. And since Scott’s title was so perfect, I had to copy that as well. To hell with original content.

There was a little discussion on this model a while back. I don’t think anyone else has bit the bullet on this piece, so I volunteered to be the guinea pig.

Rennsport Reunion, Day 8 Rennsport Reunion, Day 8

I saved the best one for last. My pride and joy. The Maisto 911 GT3 RS 4.0.

Rennsport Reunion, Day 7 Rennsport Reunion, Day 7

With so much focus on collecting all the 911 variants, I keep forgetting I even have this model. That’s not fair at all because this GT4 is actually good. Like, really good.

It’s that time of week when everyone gets lazy, slacks off, and procrastinates. Which includes me. I know it’s late, but may I entice you with this yellow RS?

A few of the mods brought to my attention that LaLD stands for ‘Live and Let Diecast’, not ‘Live and Let Dairy products’. My bad. I’ve been posting the wrong things all along. This 911 R should be alright, right?
