Happy Birthday To Me: Sunoco Blue Porsche 911 2.7RSR Happy Birthday To Me: Sunoco Blue Porsche 911 2.7RSR

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.

Early Morning Haul: Finally Found One!! Early Morning Haul: Finally Found One!!

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.

Snow Day = Snow Play Snow Day = Snow Play

Naturally I had to bring out the rally Porsches, as well as the ski trip Polestar V60. Snow makes for such interesting lighting!

Spring Cleaning - Purge Post! (Reposting for weekday folks) Spring Cleaning - Purge Post! (Reposting for weekday folks)

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…

Teutonic Tuesday: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS #60 Teutonic Tuesday: 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 RS #60

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!

Teutonic Tuesday: Work-in-progress Teutonic Tuesday: Work-in-progress

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.

McLaren Monday: FINALLY FINISHED McLaren Monday: FINALLY FINISHED

Since it’s still McLaren Monday, here is the car that has been sitting idle in my WIP drawer for a loooooong time. Like, a year. As you can see from this post from September 2017, I got the car shaped with all its roadcar-spec details (deleted air ducts on flanks, reshaped front fascia, spoiler delete, etc., and I…

TransAm Thursday TransAm Thursday

This is one of the best cars I’ve ever received in the mail. Bar none. It’s probably my favorite non-Porsche racing livery, from an era and racing series that produced some insane cars, sounds, liveries, and legends. None more legendary, though, than the man himself, Dan Gurney.

The Porsche 911 is often derogatorily referred to as a Beetle. This one, however, is related to a completely different boy band.
