This is such a great video. I love the ingenuity in building his own solution.
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.

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.
I approve of any sportscar which doesn’t do the stupid ‘wet fart’ noise on upshifts.
A surprisingly not-shit design!
I remember when the Dart came out and Marchionnelopnik waxed lyrical about it...
Hardly surprising, it’s a hateful piece of shit re-badged just enough to rape a storied name.
