Auction prices go through the roof

I have been reading the excellent Classic Car Weekly now for a good few months now, which is an excellent digest of the classic car scene for myself as well as learning a lot about various cars, maintenance and restorations. In this week’s issue, there was a report from the recent Silverstone auction. £38k for…

Greenlight up’s the game: The Ford XB Falcon

I mused about the Tokyo Torque castings that were coming from Greenlight which took me by surprise the other day. And then they go and release this (well, it is due at some point): When Biante simply see no market for 1/64, Greenlight drop this one. OK, it is a little Mad Max for me,…

Matchbox 2016 – MB34 – 2013 Ford Cargo

I don’t buy Matchbox as a rule anymore. The product is just poor, you can’t get hold of the latest castings and to rub salt into the wounds, John Lambert keeps telling you that everything is rosy when clearly it isn’t. That said, there have been some good castings of late and where I have…

Over the last four weeks whilst in Sydney…

Cars you don’t see that often – FG X Ford Falcon XR6

Another car that you probably won’t see much off on the Aussie roads these days. I am actually quite stunned of how many few Falcons there are on the roads at the moment here in NSW. Same applies to VIC. I wanted to document these three snaps of this XR6, as I know on my…
