It was later upgraded with a different, slightly larger windshield. Which is how it sat when I saw it at the factory. The tour guide told us the top of the windshield was designed to replicate the shape of a heart.

Long gone are the days when I paid €17000 for a Cecotto. These cars are hilariously over priced.

Great post! I don’t mind resin models and have ended up getting more and more in recent years. I think the value in resin is the amount of different models it opens up. It gives manufacturers a cheaper way to making new cars. I’m not really one to open up the panels and display diecasts with hoods or doors open, I’ll

Judging by how planted my 500E feels I’d say that there was quite a significant run up to get the big bastard airborne.

If I may be allowed to geek out a bit, I think that the original car isn’t actually a Fiat 500, rather a Puch judging by the shape of the badge on the front as well as the Austrian variant coming with a boxer engine from the factory.

Lancia Musa had you covered. A space between the airbag and the glove compartment designed for the car’s own handbag.

Now unless there’s been a significant improvement over the previous generation’s manual transmission, I’m here to tell you that the DSG is miles better. The shift quality on the older one was a rubbery, approximate mess. Save the manuals is all well and good, but save the good manuals, don’t save the shit ones which

Remember when Foxtrot Alpha was the page you came to for insightful pieces on military technology and international politics?

The Wangan Midnight Z is being offered at $300+ on eBay. I don’t see this being any cheaper. I don’t care, it must be mine. I wouldn’t know Wangan Midnight from a bar of soap, but I don’t care, it’s a diecast of a tastefully modified non-sunroof 930 and that’s all I need to know.
