Just rolled in. And despite my smashing the lower control arm, the truck performed its duties reliably the entire way.
Just wanted to say thanks to Dusty for putting together the rally today. 18 hours after I set off this morning I made it back home and it was a blast.
Back home safe and tired. Want to post all my thoughts but way too tired. Summary: had an awesome, awesome day.
Kinja or Internet or phone hate me. Probably all three. This will not be in any order unfortunately.
Here it is, the official Oppositelock Tour de Connecticut game thread. For competitors, this is where you score points (as well as taunt the competition and share tales of your dramas). For those not here, this is where you watch jealously from your home/office, and partake in blatant favoritism.
Norev’s new “release” (color) on their 205 GTI. Well, new... I’ve had it for a while and it’s about time I showed it. You might remember the red one I showed before along with some 1/43s. Or not as it was well over a year ago.
Behold the awesomeness that is TLV.
So I’m selling my first house I bought that later became a rental to some in-law family. I am finding a couple boxes of diecast I’ve had and have been lost for quite some time. Enjoy.
This is just a mock up, but I attached the cowling yesterday and thought it looked pretty good so I thought I’d show the progress!
Hello LaLD! Cookie ORAT is best ORAT.
That’s some good stuff you’re finding!
That MBX M1! Excellent finds here!
I only found out this morning that it was 550 Spyder day, so I quickly grabbed the only model of it that I own, a 1:64 Maisto with terrible wheels that look like they are wooden wagon wheels, and took some photos in my car on the way to work.
It has been awhile since I made a post. So Ill just inundate this post with pics. I usually do my customs in batches of 5-6 at once. And now with the airbrush I even wait for more to clearcoat all at once since thats the most crucial part of finishing, thus, it take me longer to get them in the booth now. Such is…
I had other Teutonic plans for today but when I saw R32Rennsport’s announcement it’s 550 Spyder Day today I decided to skip the initial idea and tag along. A little throwback.
So I hope you enjoy them.
Oh my _______ god it’s 505Turbeaux! Wow! Great to see you back.
A Li’l Red Express Truck has to be the original red — I mean, it’s in the name, isn’t it? :)
I picked this up last weekend while visiting some indoor flea markets/antique malls. eBay has this listed as a Suntory car and member here at LaLD mentioned it was part of a coffee-promo of some sort. Overall, it’s pretty cool. I wasn’t expecting it to be a pull-back car. The logos are sharp. The racing stripes? not…
Lesney Matchbox time is here again. Today we examine a vehicle shown by bttfdmc1984 a few days ago. This is Lesney Matchbox 19b, the MG MGA Sports Car. This casting entered the range in 1958, and remained until 1962 (which was also the final year of the 1:1 vehicle). As one can see, this is a charming example of…
