Hallo everybody Hallo everybody

Cheers Oppo, long time no post. I done did a thing. The odometer broke at 231k miles and it needs a shitload of work but it’s mine and I love it. There’s a long story here, I promise to tell it soon once I actually get good pictures. Hope everyone is well.

Did some stuff with toy cars today. Oh and real ones too...

I’m just going to re-use these for fun. No scoring necessary. 

Land of the Rising Sun-day: Corgi Mazda B1600 4x4 Land of the Rising Sun-day: Corgi Mazda B1600 4x4

A sentimental Sunday with this one as well, it was among my very favorite toys as a kid. I thought I’d lost it to the sandboxes of time, but unearthed it in a box of random crap when looking for some Radwood backdrop material. I took this truck everywhere, I remember playing with it not only around my hometown in…

Radwood Rejects Radwood Rejects

Well, not so much rejects as stuff I just didn’t get around to posting. Enjoy!

Radcast: Ferrari 308 Radcast: Ferrari 308

It’s still Sunday here in California, so dangit, I’m posting this for Radcast. This, if you didn’t know, is the single greatest car ever designed. It is perfect. There is no argument. I hear you saying, “but what about the...”. No. You are wrong. Pinifarina’s finest work, surrounding a transverse 3.0L V8 and a gated…

Radcast: Callaway Speedster Radcast: Callaway Speedster

This is a 1/24 kit I built back in the day, one of a few I’ve kept. I imagine this would be about the bitchinest car one could Radwood with. I mean, it’s a C4 Corvette, it’s got period frippery on it, and the colors are so 90's it hurts. Perfect.

Radcast: Top Down, California Style Radcast: Top Down, California Style

A totally bodacious old Hot Wheels cast of a BMW 325i ‘vert, 100% Radwood ready.

Summertime Summertime

And the livin’ ain’t easy.... Nonetheless, what better way to start summer than in a new MX-5 with the top down, blasting into the California sunset?

LALe Mans 2018: Mercedes-Benz 300SL, Le Mans 1952 LALe Mans 2018: Mercedes-Benz 300SL, Le Mans 1952

A little late to the show. This is the 1952 Mercedes-Benz 300SL, known to Benz anoraks as the W194. Only 10 were built, 2 years before the W198 300SL road car debuted. In the best possible proof of concept, they won Le Mans the first time out, in an era that otherwise belonged to Jaguar. In typical Silberpfeil…

///May 2018: Late to the party, under the wire ///May 2018: Late to the party, under the wire

It’s still Saturday here! You’d think, as one of the resident LALD BMW guys, that I would have had a banner week here... oh well. I carted some cars to work every day in hopes of getting some posts done in downtime, but it didn’t happen. So here is my way too late compilation of a few recycled favorites, mostly taken…

Teutonic Tuesday: New Phone, Who Dis? Teutonic Tuesday: New Phone, Who Dis?

Testing out my new Pixel 2 with some Beetles. I understand Philipilihp is doing the same, Beetle photo battle! My old LG suffered the Bootloop of Death, and I had a mind to just get a flip phone and forget phone smartiness and interwebbing, but didn’t want to give up toy car pictures. Or real car pictures. Or kid…

Fast Ford Friday Fast Ford Friday

No time for a real post, but this was going to be my entry for Forced Induction Friday. Amazing stuff posted today and all week! My posting intentions were hamstrung by a dead phone. Enjoy this teaser of AutoArt’s excellent 1/43 Sierra Cossie, a Model Citizen score:

Everyone's posting Engine Week awesomeness, and I'm just sitting here like Everyone's posting Engine Week awesomeness, and I'm just sitting here like

A collection of 1/43s with no visible engine and a phone/camera that died the death Tuesday= no contribution and sad panda. Kind of nice to disconnect from the phone/world though. I’d replace it with a Nokia 3310 if I didn’t need to take pictures for this place ;). Feel a bit like my old custom GTO lately, a little…

 Diecast Tour of California: A Long And Winding Road To Global Time Attack (long & picture heavy)  Diecast Tour of California: A Long And Winding Road To Global Time Attack (long & picture heavy)

I was lucky enough to head out to Buttonwillow on Saturday for Global Time Attack, it was a great day. The drive out there alone is worth it, if you take the back way over the coastal ranges. Some of California’s best roads and scenery are to be found en route to the hardest working part of the state, the mighty San…
