In my youth there was only one capo di tutti anatre, one king of 2CVs, the Charleston. Stylish and you actually spotted a lot in ‘80's Holland. So of course I have a few of those.
Last week Philipilihp announced on Instagram he’d post a 1/43 Spark Porsche Rennwagen from the Piëch era today. So I really hope he’s keeping that promise and thought: Let’s join the fun a bit.
Abarth is for FIAT. Gordini is for Renault. The world is awesome in it’s simplicity. Right? Wrong. Because SIMCA worked with ‘m both. Actually, despite Gordini is known for his creations for Renault, he started at SIMCA. Henri Pigozzi, the guy producing FIATs in Nanterre and therefor creating SIMCA, recognized the…
Well, maybe that’s a bit harsh on the first gen X5, Rodeo Drive Traktor. But it was BMW’s first attempt for a SUV and we Europeans only follow trends set on the other side of the Atlantic years, maybe even decades later.
The French term Fourgonnette is all about a small delivery vans. And you’d always see many Fourgonnettes en France. Every single French manufacturer had a pretty small car turned into one. Citroën had to come up with one based on the 2CV. You might have seen some before.
Sorry. Excuse me. For putting up another post on the R5 Turbo by ChoroQ. But this time I added the blue and white ones. I simply can’t get enough of these. I might need help.
Last week I showed a Kyosho rendition on the 993 RS, today we’re seeing a newer generation (997) with a turbo on it from Kyosho as well: The 911 GT2RS.
Spotted last weekend at Interclassics Maastricht: Some will call it Sakrileg or sacrilege as this amazing clean 1969 LWB VW Typ 2 T2 (Car) Transporter is fitted with a watercooled Subaru flat four. And no, not a turbo’d STI unit, just a humble 74hp 1.8. Has air suspension, ready for action. They’re asking quite a lot…
A little while ago I was lucky enough to get a huge pile of Kyosho 1/64s from the Porsche Minicar Collection IV. And I realize I’ve shown way too little of these little gems.
Two issues with this one: I really need to convince my wife I need a 2 seater for my daily commute. And I’ll have to wait a freaking whole year if I’d order one today! Great resurrection Alpine!
As a tradition I’m sharing a contender of the greatest rally raid in the world during the event itself: Paris-Dakar! Last year it was the LWB 205 T16 Grand Raid, this year it’s the Citroën ZX Rallye Raid. Which in fact was the successor of the 205T16 Grand Raid’s successor, the 405T16.
I’ve told before that Opel never really got as popular as VW was over here. When Opel came with their “Look at Opel now” campaign that said it all: “hey you all, we are not as boring as you all think”. New cars were introduced with some more frivolous designs. Like this Opel Corsa Swing.
Most of you might know my love for Alpine. Some of you may even know my favorite Alpine racer to be the M63. But I still haven’t found one. Luckily my good pal and dear friend Jonee send me a package for X-mas that consisted of something that could ease the pain a bit. Or rather: A lot! The Alpine A210.
Still not full up to speed in the new year but as we’re probably doing new year’s resolutions, here’s mine. I’m gonna finish my 1:1 2002. I really will. It’s not yellow so I better get another vintage Polistil.
You know the drill: last Friday of the year so a small retrospect to my French content of last year. And what a year it was...
This being the last Teutonic Tuesday of the year means I’m gonna do a little throwback to some of this year’s Teutonic highlights for me. As it’s still Christmas it gives me enough time to do other stuff than get out my gear and shoot new stuff while mrs. Jobjoris expects help in the kitchen. So here it goes. Picture…
