When Jay Leno reviewed the Mercedes 600 on Jay Leno’s Garage, he told the story of an Iranian neighbor who was immediately frightened of the car as he drove it home the day he bought it. This was due to the fact that it immediately brought back memories of the genocidal government officials who used the 600 as their…
Now for today’s 1970s run, comes a car that I’ve thought long about finally showcasing here. This is a Mercedes 250T made by KK-Scale, aka the first sealed 1/18 I’ve ever owned.
Sorry if you were expecting a Nissan.
I’m sorry, BlueMazda2, but it appears your Mercedes is missing a few cylinders.
Day two of Car Week, the 2000s. I could probably throw a dart at my collection and it’d hit like three or four models perfect for this day, but I figure it’s probably preferred to stick to new models never seen here. Today, I have on offer a 2000 Mercedes-Benz CL500 by AutoArt in 1/18 scale.
Well, Car Week has finally arrived, and I’m tossing my hat in as always. No use in beating around the bush, let’s get things rolling with a Lexus, naturally: The 2015 Lexus LS460 by Kyosho in 1/43 scale.
Testing the waters with a Best of Show 1988 Buick Riviera T-Type in 1/43 scale. It even features the CRT touchscreen these were so famous for. I’m impressed.
Even now at 24 years old, I’ve always felt that birthdays should bring a big gift, something special that you can look back upon. Unfortunately, a lot of my friends and family don’t share that sentiment, so I have to be the one to provide it for myself. Nevertheless, this year, I decided to go for a nice new AutoArt…
Someone traded in this fairly clean 1997 Intrepid. Outside of a few cosmetic issues I don’t think I’ve seen one this straight in about 15 years. I’m glad someone out there is keeping up with these old Cab Forward cars.
I really want one of these along with an SS 454 pickup.
As mentioned previously I’m starting to have minor interest in 1/64 scale models again after a long period of 1/18 interest. This time I decided to try out some brands I haven’t had before: True Scale Miniatures (TSM) and Schuco.
I really like it.
Today’s my birthday, so in celebration, I added a couple more 1:18s to the collection, in the form of the AutoArt Jaguar E-Type Lightweight and the Norev Porsche 930 Turbo Targa.
I’ve been skipping out on a lot of Hot Wheels’ car culture lines recently, but the RWB 930 from the latest Silhouettes line definitely gathered my attention.
Another video review, this time about the LS400 that got extremely popular on here a few weeks ago.
I decided to build this.
I’ve done this before, but I fell off the wayside, so I’m trying it again starting with my Norev Mercedes W116.

Then a Century showed up.
Turns out there was indeed an engine under all that dirt
