Well a special edition of project cars 2 comes with one resin... but it’s a good one. 1/12th TSM McLaren 720S... oh helllooooooooo
This Cars and Coffee is getting nuts. Filled the entire parking lot of one of the megachurches here and people were still filing in trying to find spots. So much stuff of all types, it’s amazing. Not featured: every Focus RS in the state of Colorado (probably).
Volvo had its 90th birthday this past Thursday. Nearly missed it altogether!
I’m a bit late on the 917 train, but here they are! Some redlines and the more modern stuff...
It’s Friday evening. That means it’s time for a drink. Enjoying a large glass of some home made cider and a pretty epic hot wheels casting.
I’ve had the full Cool Classics line for a while now and never actually took photos of them.
Surprised to see some of the things that showed up. Especially one very special porsche... enjoy.
The McLaren F1. Something just about everyone who knows anything about cars can get behind and lust after. I’ve always been apprehensive about finding “the one” that I would first get a 1:18 of and it’s been either this Ueno Clinic LeMans winner or the epically gorgeous Gulf Longtail.
Got a couple epic Hot Wheels today... managed to win some bids for prices high enough that I’d rather not mention. Such is the price I pay for 917's...
Got another Volvo Amazon wagon to match my 1:1. It’s so nice being able to find diecast of a real car you own!! I’ve never seen a diecast of my 2000 accord 4-dr... probably for good reason.
Ok LaLD. If there’s one thing that gets me going with diecast, it’s great paint. For me there’s not much better than color changing paint. I was wondering if everyone here could help compile a list of models with such paint. Together, we have massive knowledge of all makes and scales.
So I found a guy who does some awesome artwork. Turns out he had done some great stuff for Jalopnik, not sure why they never posted anything about it, maybe it was for the offices. He did some Porsche stuff in honor of them returning to LMP1 at LeMans.
Since most people here are going nuts for JDM, especially classic GTR’s, here’s something you might consider...it’s gorgeous... good luck to anyone brave enough to bid. It’s already super high for how early the bidding is.
Digging the retrospectives guys. Here’s somehow the only germans I took shots of last year... man I need to step it up this year!
Been a long time since I did any customs (especially finishing one...) and I made some up for christmas presents for some coworkers... they will be a bit late haha.
Almost got above freezing today... since our big snow storm wednesday/thursday. Inspired by Howard and MCNR87, decided to take advantage of the sunlight and let the Black Bandit Power Wagon play in the snow. Took on one of my snowpiles no problem!
So I’ve decided to get rid of many of my Hot Wheels (including that $TH above). It’s just too hard for me to enjoy them all with how many I now have. I’m hoping to just get it down to about 500 or so. Scary to think my collection’s a few hundred more than that.
Decided to DLM my Forza series. No worries, I still have an un-opened box ;)
These are probably my favorite Lamborghinis by Hot Wheels. The Gallardo in the satin black takes the cake though... so perfect.
Got home from visiting family out of town and found my Secret Super box!
