I know this is a loophole perhaps, but I bought this model at the Petersen Museum in LA back in May especially to use in the next LaLD Car Week, knowing that it would have a decades theme. I assumed one of the decade categories would be pre-War, so I’m cheekily sticking with that assumption, and hope that the quality…
Im currently out of town, so doing this post via mobile Chrome, which right now is cutting off a decent portion of my compose window on both the left and right, so I’ll keep this brief. This is an exquisite custom Porsche 356b done for me by @jakescustomz on Instagram. Definitely nworth a follow.
Sorry guys, I have to regurgitate today, since I’m out of town. But since I’m regurgitating the Sunoco 911 2.7RSR, I think it’s okay.
Another gem sent to me by Jobjoris, this lengthened and radified Peugeot 205 Grand Raid needed to be spotlighted. This 1.8L 16 valve four cylinder Turbo engine put out 36o angry French horses, which Ari Vatanen wrangled to the overall win in 1987, despite finishing the first stage 275th!
The Car, the myth, the legend. The Ultimate of the first M3s. The photos are from last year, but the love is still real.
Like I said yesterday, I am going to try to stay away from the predictable Porsches all of this week. So in honor of that, here is a Spyker C8 Spyder GT2R that ran at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2006.
I think I used this tactic last year during car week as well, but it was late at night, I forgot to take Monday Car Week photos, so here we are. A grey wall + a Spark Porsche 911 RSR.
It is often said that we live in a golden age of diecast customizing and model making. The advent of 3d printing has opened up so many doors, it’s amazing. You can scratch build a lot, but it is hard to get the level of detail that you can with a 3d printer.
CAs a total Porsche fanboi I’ve been pining over, and jealous of, photos from past Luftgekühlt events of the past 5 years, watching them get bigger and badder every year. And after missing out on Rennsport Reunion last summer, my mind was made up to finally make it out to the sixth edition.
This is the #77 Dempsey Proton Racing Porsche 911 RSR that won the LMGTE AM class at Le Mans in 2018, finishing 25th overall, 53 laps behind Fernando Alonso. This is one of my favorite liveries, and has been for the past 3 years, when the striking blue/grey colors caught my eye. I’d been looking for a decently priced…
It was my birthday again last month, as normally happens once a year, and that meant it was time for another 1:18 model. Well, did Model Citizen Diecast have a doozie available!
Finally got myself some blue paint! The shade is a tad dark, but I think it works.
Not in Florida, but in Norther Virginia instead.
Kinsmarts are one of the biggest bangs for your buck in scale models. They seem like just another pullback, but for $5.99 you get a very nicely detailed 1/32 car.
Naturally I had to bring out the rally Porsches, as well as the ski trip Polestar V60. Snow makes for such interesting lighting!
Since most of the country is finally emerging on the other side of the polar vortex, that must mean it’s spring, right? And in spring time we clean! And de-clutter! So it’s finally time for me to let some of the cars go that have been in my collection or collecting dust waiting to turn into customs but probably never…
In August of 2017 four guys got together to bring a new experience and line of products to the world of scale model car collecting. They are all automobile enthusiasts and artisans with experience in the scale model world. However, they saw a niche to fill with some quirky choices. They formed DNA Collectibles in…
The 996 is always thought of as the ugly duckling of the 911 family. However, according to Porsche’s Top 5 series on Youtube, the 996 generation 911 RSR is also one of the top 5 loudest and raunchiest sounding race cars they ever built. Ugly duckling no more, I think!
TSM 1:43 Alfa Romeo 33/3 driven to victory in the 1971 Targa Florio by Nino Vaccarella and Toine Hezemans.
This has been my most involved body alteration project, I think, as far as I can remember. I’m changing a Porsche 356 “A” to a strict, and mostly stock, 1960 356B.
