I am tipping...
I didn’t quite have the time to do a new post, as I am busy getting my LeMans car ready. Which will also be a Porsche. But more on that next week.
We all love The Wedge, right? And even more so in black and gold.
I didn’t really like most of the previous colors of this Matchbox casting - but silver suits it perfectly.
Another Supermarket find - this really nice Hot Wheels casting of the Countach.
One of several Supermarket finds this morning. Looks great in white!
I never found the white version - so I grabbed this black one when I found it.
The Honda S800 was only the third car made by Honda. Introduced at the 1965 Tokyo Motor Show, the S800 replaced the successful Honda S600 as the company’s image car and competed with the Austin-Healey Sprite, MG Midget, Triumph Spitfire and Fiat 850 Spider.
So yesterday I raided my photo archive for a 2000CS - today we are going further and introduce the “E9" 2800CS. Essentially a 2000CS with more room at the front for the six cylinder engine.
This might be the only 2000C (or 2000CS) you will see this week. The “Typ 120" or “New Class Coupé” range, which comprised the BMW 2000 C and BMW 2000 CS, was built by Karmann for BMW from the summer of 1965 to 1969.
We can do re-posts? Well, here’s one from a couple of years ago.
Honestly - do you recognise this car? I didn’t. I’ve been looking at vintage Japanese stuff for over 20 years, and I didn’t have a clue what it was.
Here’s the latest from our friends in Osaka. Let’s start with my favourite release for July - the Fiat 500F - #29 in the Premium range. Love it.
So - did Tomica need a new Toyota 2000GT casting? After all, they’ve always had one ever since the beginning in 1970. And there wasn’t much wrong with the old “Limited” casting from 2002:
Today the star of the show is the new Autobacs building from Tomicatown. Now I had stopped buying these as I am seriously out of space - but sometimes, you got to weaken. And I did.
Just making the best of the glorious Autumn weather for a couple of quick shots.
This is my small contribution to Engine Week here - you don’t get all that much detail in 1/64 or 1/43. But there’s one manufacturer who has made it their task to give enthusiasts a bit of engine detail in 1/64 - and that is F-Toys.
Tomica will be releasing the “Jurassic World Tour Vehicle” (aka Ford Explorer) in July.
Can I quickly interrupt the Engine Smorgasbord here with the latest from Tomica?
Hello and welcome to another Edition of the Rising Sun-Day. Today we have a look at Tomica’s latest Gift Set - the “Honda Collection”.
