Thanks to a horrible fight with the flu, I haven’t been able to get this together until now.
Somehow came across 3 RS6 Avants at CVS.
I adore the Porsche 917.
This little guy started life as an afterthought in an eBay lot of unloved diecasts. The no-name Hong Kong casting is crude, lacks detail, and was in bad shape. However, the shape was perfect.
I’ve been getting a lot of budget diecasts from the 70's and 80's. These are some of my favorite finds. I bought these all with the intention of restoring them, but a couple are too cool to tear down and rebuild.
The 1971 Ligier JS3 was the second sports prototype manufactured and raced by Equipe Ligier, one of France’s most successful racing teams.

This is a 1/43 Lola T70 from Minimodel OXA.
This Series 1 XKE is a 1/18 model from Paragon.

The Porsche RS Spyder was one of most successful prototypes of this century.
Here’s one of my favorite diecasts, but sadly I don’t know the manufacturer.
Another sale from eBay, this time running through Friday at 8 AM Eastern. A smaller percentage than usual, but no minimum amount.
This was my first conversion/custom diecast project in the 1/64 range and a whole lot of fun.
With racing innovations such as mid-engined layouts, 4-wheel drive, diesel, and hybrid technology, Audi is one of motorsport’s most important marques.
