So in a fit of boredom I’ve been reading up about the Buick GN/GNX. ANd a few sites say something interesting about the motor. It was developed by GM with the helping hand os someone called Mclaren Engines. When I read that I, like some of you probably are now, thought “THAT Mclaren?” I did a little searching and I…
Found these two today. I already picked up all the F1 GTRs I need, but these still have value as I know some of you are still hunting around here. And for the right price they can be yours. My #1 target is still the Kmart exclusive red FD RX7, though as usual I’m more than open to seeing what everyone has in their…
So there’s a con in LA right now where some freakin’ Czar Bombs are being dropped, like my favorite here. Good lord, it looks just as murderous as the real thing. There’s others too, though, including a bulk of the new full-premium Car culture series. Take a look.
So when a Car Culture series comes out I usually buy the set, then pick my favorite from the series and get an extra of that so I can let it out. SOmetimes I got two. This was the case with Modern CLassics, until I learned something about HW’s Honda CRX casting, which shows up in this series.
Not a whole lot of new models by the looks of it, but goddamn stop the presses, the legendary Mazda 787B is hitting Hot Wheels, folks. And the rare Audi R8 as well.
So, we’re getting an Indycar in both standard and $TH form for 2018. Because 2018 wasn’t promising enough, right?
Received both multiple copies of the 2017 Mainline and Forza Series P1, got to work on these. While the red-on-black looks good in person, nothing beats all-black.
Tore open the new P1 for *later* purposes. Couldn’t help but notice how much room the passengers arms get on the outer sides. Virtually nothing on the inside, though. I know this for the general structure of the HW, but it’s still funny to look at.
This is starting to become an addiction. Not the cute hobbyist addiction like alot of us here have, more like the dilapidated heroin addict trying to get his next fix addiction. Whatever, at least this is healthier.
Went to Wal Mart today and saw that some smeglord threw the Modern Classics 964 in the dump bin. Lucky for me since besides the AMG it was the one other entry from the series I was looking to let loose and I dried the pegs up last time I was there.
Screw it, might as well go all in now.
Part of me is very annoyed I didn’t get some of these “legitimately”. The rest of me is telling that part to shut the f**k up and is making remarks about how certain parts of their body should have grown by now. My favorite is the SRT Viper, BTW.
I was expecting it to be a bit smaller.
Again no idea how many times I’ve done this or how many HWs/MBXs I’ve amassed, but nonetheless here we are with another wall down, this time with a total of 4 $THs. Not to mention other gems like the Huayra Roadster, the FD RX7, and of course the F1 GTR. This wall is probably the best yet, but we still don’t…
To those who “saw” the 90s and weren’t just born into it like me, was the GTS-R really this weirdly proportional? I mean I love it but still.
Made myself an all-black F1 GTR like I said I would. Took alot of time tolling away with a dry erase marker but I’d say the results are worth it. In the unlikely event the F1 appears in the mainline again, hopefully it appears in a solid color (Papaya orange. C’mon, Mattel).
Alright, I will then. The B case for 2018 got revealed today buy T-Hunted. Has some nice additions like the upcoming Skylines and the 55 Corvette. I’m personally pumped that El Viento’s returning, finally. Sadly no Honda City Turbo, though. Damn. I need that to go along with my Odyssey.
Kimba the Diecast Lover’s half of our HWEP arrived today; the Elusive 2017 F1 GTR. Thanks Kimba, hope that M3 made it.
