I was expecting a Tomica Premium Carrera RS Zwei punkt Sieben today and I was right. So I thought to add some 911 today, a Porker from a brand I usually show French casts from. Norev.
Last week I showed Choro-Q’s Giulia and SimplifyThenAddLightness - I Hope Your Speed Over The Rival immediately jumped on it: He had quite the iterations of Choro-Q’s Lancia Stratos. I have only one, this venomous lime green, but be sure to see quite some of these today!
I know, I know. I’ve shown the Simca 1000 before. A lot. But, in my defense, I’ve never shown the one that started it all for this highly successful car. The 1962 base Simca 1000.
I never liked the SLR
AMG McLaren. The nose was way too long, those twin oval headlights looked old fashioned when it was introduced and the chrome trim pieces on the side vents: just not my cup of tea. But then I heard one. And believe me: There’s little out there that beats the sound of it.
I’m so glad Small Scale Sydney reminds us regularly there’s new epic stuff coming from Tomica. And when I order it I try to find some other stuff as well, better make good use of the shipping from Japan. Last time I ordered a few Choro-Q Zero pull-back cars aside. Tiny. And in this case Italian.
Bastille Day is the most important French national day. Setting the storming of the Bastille in 1789 as an essential part of the French History. The 14th July has become a major public holiday, traditionally considered as the symbol of the French Revolution. So to prevent me from relating a specific car manufacturer…
Or the most beautiful VW ever made. And that’s not just me, according to edu-petrolhead there were quite the magazines back then claiming this. Car and Driver even pleading for it to be made worldwide. But in the end...
Last week I complained about the fact that the line up of HW’s Lamborghini Series was a bit off to me. At least I found the most interesting one this weekend. That’s all. Ciao Tutti!
Not sure if I mentioned or showed the new (to me) red A110 but here it is anyway. Accompanied by another small new (to me) Renault 3 Inch by Norev.
Happy 4th of July to all you Americans. I have little American stuff to show but as I still had Fintail’s package laying around: that came from the USA so it’s relevant. Totally.
Yesterday I finally ran into some Hot Wheels Lamborghini series. I snagged all the ones I saw, just three. And although I’ll probably get all that I’ll run into in the future (if I do) I’m not nearly as stoked with these series as I was with the Porsche. It’s just all too modern, just a Countach (which I, of course, …
This one was the main reason for getting a final lot from Fintail’s Sale of the Century. Although there might come another one...
Maybe some of you figured out there’d be an other Fintail Sale of the Century post from me today so here it is: The Teutonic content. As Fintail didn’t just sell his MC-18 Ferrari set, oh no. He had set MC-23 for sale as well. And that totally is the Ferrari set’s counterpart. With all those Porsches.
Yesterday I went to the RDW (our DMV) to have the PAO checked. And after it was tested thoroughly (about 1 hour!) it passed the test completely!
When Fintail put his Sale of the Century online I was pretty late in the game, probably has something to do with completely different timezones we’re in. But to my surprise, three lots were unsold upon that point. So I had to get ‘m.
Le SUPERCAR FRANÇAISE, it says on their website. Yet I’ve never seen any proof of an actual driving car. Small Scale Sydney had his doubts already two years ago and I don’t think Genty, the French Supercar company, finished a production-ready Akylone in this period.
Stuttgart schaffts es wieder! It was terribly exciting this year. After I woke up in the morning finding out 2 out of 3 Toyotas were out of the race I was reminded about last year’s terrible results for the Japanese. As a Porsche fanatic it was good to find out Porsche #1 being in the lead with some LMP2s following,…
This here, is the Peugeot 908 Hdi Fap Oreca that competed in the Le Mans 2011. As TFritch already did an amazing piece on the 2010 collaboration between Peugeot and the Magny-Cours based motorsport company I can focus on the model a bit. And I might have said it before but I really love how Norev uses actual liveries…
Still 4 days and a few hours. Well, it depends on the time you’re reading this but I can’t fix that. So here’s a clock to live by next few days:
Or rather in Cé hé sin’s style: A thing rarely seen. Not that weird with only 139 units produced.
