1980 RS2000 hits £87k at auction

I read about this car in this week’s CCW – what a find this would be. We have seen low mileage fast Ford’s hit silly money of late, but this is just incredible. How many more of these can we find tucked away? Source: Metro 17/11/17 Advertisements

Biante 1/64 Ford XY Falcon GTHO (Electric Blue)

I am constantly amazed at how Aussies know their XY from their XT. I still have great difficulty knowing the letter designation for Falcon’s and Commodore’s, but I have more joy with the later models. Here is the spiel below about this acquisition: The Ford Motor Company Falcon XY GT is a muscle car based on the Ford Falcon XY.…

Hot Wheels 2016 Ford GT Race

Another HW add. I have mentioned before, I am moving away from the daft fantasy models and into the licensed releases. I am surprised this one does not have the EcoBoost livery : And once again, Mattel ruin this casting by insisting on sticking their HW logo in places. Also, WTF is with the blacked…

Cars you don't see anymore

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…

March’s delayed order!

Well, this month I have not bought anything from Japan Booster as part of the ever growing JDM 1/64 collection.TBH, the selection for March was not that great, so no need to spend money when I don’t really have it to spend. However, this little lot came through the post from my travels to Oz…
