Picked up this 1:43 Daytona Coupe at the Simeone Museum in Philly a few years ago. They had the real car on display there when I got this one, along with a bunch of other awesome cars. Definitely worth a stop if you’re around Philly. Not the greatest detail on this model, but I love the color of this model and history…
This is one of those paradox models in the debate between Diecast and resin. It’s a car that should have been Diecast with opening parts. It’s a car that would have never been made if it weren’t for the simplicity of resin model manufacturing.
I’m not sure it’s possible for me to do any LaLD Car Week without posting this car. So here she is again. The 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale Prototipo. To me, the most beautiful car...........
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…
One of my favorite models in my collection of possibly the only USDM car I care for, the 3rd gen Chevy Nova. This is a 1/18 scale model by GMP. This is the “street fighter” version which has a very pro touring feel.
Some quick afternoon picks of an old play worn Kyosho. My son got ahold of this and my AA 1/18 RX8 when he was around two. The RX8 didn’t make it. The Kyosho handled the abuse a little better with just a missing mirror, exhaust tips, and a few emblems damaged. Still a great model!
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.
1:43 Minichamps - BMW Z3 M Roadsters - Let’s assume they are 1999 models.
The 90’s Impala SS was introduced in 1994 and ran till 1996 to compliment the Caprice as a high end sports luxury muscle car with it’s 5.7 L (350 cu in) LT1 V8 engine that was found in the Corvette, Camaro, and Firebird. It was phased out in 1996 due to the popularity of the trucks and SUVs of the time.
The Car, the myth, the legend. The Ultimate of the first M3s. The photos are from last year, but the love is still real.
The best era of automotive design, featuring your favorite German tuner. Here is LS Collectibles’ miniaturization of one of the rarest AMGs in existence, the CL600 7.0 AMG.
I picked up this Welly Alfa 159 wagon off ebay for 20 bucks. The wheels that came on it were barely attached and also looked way too small so I replaced them with another set from ebay, which also cost 20 bucks. So much for a cheapo budget model. I’m not 100% thrilled with how they mounted but they’re super glued on…
Beautiful isn’t she? The Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, in my opinion, is second in timeless beauty only to the FD RX-7. On the 1:1 scale there are only 500 in the world, but thanks to Welly we can all pick up a 1:18 scale model to tide us over until we can afford the real one.
Yes, yes, it doesn’t have the pop culture cachet of its track-only twin. But it’s the same car, street legal bodywork and added creature comforts asides.
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.
1:18 Scale - Norev 2008 BMW M1 Hommage.
For my first ever LaLD Car Week entry, I’d like to start off this week with one of my favorite 10s model: my Kyosho 1/18 BMW 540i M-Sport (G30) in Sophisto Grey.
LaLD Car Week 2019 - BMW M3 DTM - Martin Tomczyk, BMW Team RMG
Well, well, well... it looks like somebody found the loophole in his own game this year. This might look like a 993 Porsche, but it’s actually a bespoke recreation by Gunther Werks. This is GT Spirit’s model of their 400R, a completely reimagined Porsche. I might be cheating twice here, I recently posted this car to…
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.
