Ford GT 40 Le Mans

Another gift from Brian, just took pictures awhile ago so I can have an online record of this. For such a small scale (which I still don't know) looks like a 1:72 or 1:87scale diecast, it has very good details. I'm still looking for the 1:64 model of this GT40 "Gulf" version.

Thanks again Brian!

and for scale comparison
with my 1:64 Tomica Limited Nissan Skyline R35GTR

and with my 100% Hotwheels Gulf Porsche 917

29th TAP Rally de Portugal Mitsubishi Lancer Evo II WRC

In 1995, Ralliart Germany made headlines as they paved the way in the Group N class4 division of the 1995 TAP Rally de Portugal. With their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo II driven by Rui Madiera and co driver Nuno da Silva, they gained an overall 1st place in their class.

This is one of my favorite diecast in my collection, hope I could get also the LanEvo I WRC which is I supposed was only made by Racing43 in 1:43scale. If you have any leads, please let me know, it will definitely complete my wrc evo collection.

Matchbox Pierce Quantum Ladder Firetruck

Got this yesterday from my friend Calix who arrived from Canada this week. A big thanks to you my friend!

This is his gift for my son Kenshin. Its a new series by Matchbox, the "Real Working Rigs" series. And as you can see below, its definitely bigger than the ordinary 1:64 version of their Pierce Firetruck.

Its a lot heavier and has a working ladder that can extend and tilt also.

1:64 Scale Ford Mustang Cobra II

This post of mine is kind of a tribute to the late Farrah Fawcett who died a few weeks ago. During the late 70's I was hooked with her car, the Ford Mustang Cobra II that starred in the TV series "Charlie's Angels" which was for me at that time, one of the nicest car in that era.

And in my early high school days, my brother's classmate had one of these mustangs that fetch him in school, what an awesome car hehe!

Now here I am trying to revive those golden years of mine.

This is the 1:64 scaled diecast model by Johnny Lightning.

I have other Movie and TV cars in 1:64 scale that I would feature here in the future! Watch out for it!

1996-97 Repsol Ford Escort WRC

I got this Ford Escort WRC from a friend without its base, so I am not sure of the year if its 96 or 97 that Carlos Sainz drove this together with Luis Moya.

If it is the 96 version then Sainz and Moya only placed 3rd overall in the Acropolis Rally of Greece, but if it is the 97 version, then they got 1st place!

this model is by IXO in 1:43 version.
