Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Countach Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Countach

Because there is never too much Countach, or Zylmex.

Running of the Bulls: Tomica Lamborghini Set Running of the Bulls: Tomica Lamborghini Set

Today I have a 4 pack - chock full of Sant’Agatas finest: The Tomica Lambo Set from a couple of years ago.

Running of the Bulls: Majorette Lamborghini Countach Running of the Bulls: Majorette Lamborghini Countach

It’s not the sharpest casting of this car, but a lovely period piece nonetheless.

Running of the Bulls: Matchbox Lamborghini Miura Running of the Bulls: Matchbox Lamborghini Miura

Here’s an example of the modern Matchbox Miura casting, and I’ve got to say that they got it pretty right. Not much to complain there. And here’s a pic of a 1:1 I saw in a Museum last month:

Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Miura Running of the Bulls: Zylmex Lamborghini Miura

I didn’t really have the time to take new photos - so I will just run with some old favorites. Here’s one - the Zylmex Lamborghini Miura.

Tomica for September '18 - Update Tomica for September '18 - Update

So there seemed to be very little new for Tomica in September - and the reason was that they didn’t put all the new releases on their website initially. Now the website has been updated again - and we get a few more goodies.

Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota HiAce Camper Land of the Rising Sun Day: Tomica Dandy Toyota HiAce Camper

We are obviously deep in the 1970s here. Back when people travelled the Hippie Trail (head full of zombie) in old Camper Vans. And this Toyota is here to remind you that you didn’t have to use an old VW Kombi. You could have used a HiAce instead.

Tomica September 2018 Releases - Prepare for Weirdness Tomica September 2018 Releases - Prepare for Weirdness

This is a rather odd release. We only get one new model in the regular range, and that’s a Motorbike - the Honda CBR 1000 RR.

Tomica Tuesday: Honda Civic Type Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Tomica Tuesday: Honda Civic Type Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

So the first of the long awaited Type Rs have arrived at mine - the red version crossed the line first. And the first impressions are good - very good.

Land of the Rising Sun Day: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Pikes Peak Safety Car Land of the Rising Sun Day: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Pikes Peak Safety Car

There isn’t a big story behind this one: In 2013, Mitsubishi supplied two Safety Cars for the Pikes Peak race:

Samurai Sunday: 1982 IMSA Datsun 280ZX Turbo Samurai Sunday: 1982 IMSA Datsun 280ZX Turbo

Today’s Japanese entry has a definite Burger and Fries flavor. Obviously, it is a Datsun (as they were still called Datsuns in the US then) - but it found success and moderate fame on the race tracks of the USA.

Spaghetti Saturday: Fiat Dallara X1/9 by Tomica Dandy Spaghetti Saturday: Fiat Dallara X1/9 by Tomica Dandy

It’s good to tick one off the “Most Wanted” list, like I managed to do with this one. Most of you will know the 1/64 Tomica Fiat X1/9. But the 1/43 Dallara version from Tomica Dandy is much less well known, and oh so hard to find. At least for the kind of money that I’m willing to pay.

Radcast 2018: Tomica Toyota MR2 Radcast 2018: Tomica Toyota MR2

Because that’s the car in the original Radcast post

Radcast 2018: Nissan Cedric 430 - Grachan Style Radcast 2018: Nissan Cedric 430 - Grachan Style

On the whole, I like my models like the 1:1 cars: Bog Standard. But I’m willing to make exceptions. Like the Aoshima Grachan models. The 430 Cedric just qualifies for Radwood, as it was made from 1979 to 1983. However, it is what the Japanese customizers did to the second hand cars in the 1990s that makes them a…

Happy 70th Porsche - Rising Sun Style Happy 70th Porsche - Rising Sun Style

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.

Thursday by the Thames: Lotus Esprit S1 Thursday by the Thames: Lotus Esprit S1

We all love The Wedge, right? And even more so in black and gold.

Teutonic Tuesday: Karmann Ghia Type 34 Teutonic Tuesday: Karmann Ghia Type 34

I didn’t really like most of the previous colors of this Matchbox casting - but silver suits it perfectly.

Spaghetti Sunday: Hot Wheel Lamborghini Countach Spaghetti Sunday: Hot Wheel Lamborghini Countach

Another Supermarket find - this really nice Hot Wheels casting of the Countach.

Hour Rule: White Mazda REPU Hour Rule: White Mazda REPU

One of several Supermarket finds this morning. Looks great in white!
