I have been on and off tempted to start a collection of 1:43 vintage race cars. Think Bugatti Type 35, Ferrari 250 TR, etc. I love these old racers a lot. Basically, a second, but much more focused collection.
I haven’t really had the urge to buy many new die-cast for some reason, but after attempting to build them in LEGO, and reading their unfortunate history, I’ve come to really love the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR and the W196, which I consider two of the brand’s all time best.
It seems I am particularly drawn to the 1950s and 1960s. Car history is extremely fascinating, and I think that it was in this era when car culture as we know it really began to take hold. (Shelby Daytona not included because it’s on the way)
It made a cameo in my last post but here’s my Kyosho Ferrari 250 LM.
Time to bust out the Kyosho 😈😈😈😈
If you want the new Tomica Premium LFA but didn’t pre-order one, they seem to be in stock now. At least on eBay.
It’s been a while. I haven’t gotten many die-cast lately(waiting for that LFA to be relases), which is mainly to my binge building of classic cars in LEGO form recently, but you probably knew that already. I want to do a Pebble Beach like scene in LEGO at some point.
It seems one of these is going up for auction:
I have not gotten much die-cast, and I have no idea what to build on my own in LEGO, so here are two builds that I originally found online:
Ferrari 250 GT Tour De France, Ferrari 250 GTO, and Ferrari 250 LM.
Kyosho Miura that arrived yesterday, and two of the Euro Speed cars that I found at Target today.
I also want to get the Lee Petty Oldsmobile.
I think I mentioned I had a 1/64 Ferrari 250 GTO on the way. Well, it never arrived, so I got a refund. Sucks that it didn’t show, but I used that refund for one of the new Petty Oldsmobiles from RCM, and a Kyosho Miura, so there’s a silver lining.
EDIT: Found this on TH.
I hope I succeeded.
My diecast Zonda Cinque Roadster arrives 😆
Glad this got a release outside Pop Culture.
