Tomica Series – No.109 VOLKSWAGEN POLO

You know, I am surprised by two things – Why hasn’t Majorette done a bog standard Polo Is this the direction that Tomica want to take with European additions? Having driven a Polo for around 4 years, I suppose I have a small soft spot for this one – I think that the highlight for…

When Matchbox get it right…………

Matchbox has to be the most frustrating brand on sale at the moment. We all know that the brand is basically screwed, with hardly anything making it outside of the US. But what annoys me even more is stuff like this: This is the new recolour of the VW Transporter double cab. Picture has been…

May’s order

May’s order from Japan Booster was small and restrained in comparison to the April one where I went a little mental with a huge spend as ebay had 20% off. In course I will muse about these in due course, but that Crown estate I have been after for ages. Very pleased with these two. I…

Schuco 1:43 Volkswagen Passat B07 Estate SILVER LHD

I don’t say this often, but at the moment, I love my car – I really do. I am taking far more care of it than I did with the Tiguan. Dave has taken us all to Italy, Germany, France and the Netherlands without too much trouble and it is effortless driving him. I will…

2016 Matchbox New Models…

I have no paid too much interest in Matchbox this year at all – namely for the fact that the product is pretty crap. Poor choice of castings and lack of real cars has made me stop completely and move on. I have blogged about this before. The Gathering in Albuquerque has come and gone,…

Cars you don’t see that often – VW Routan

There was a something of a surprise, yet something very familiar about this spot in Germany the other week – and upon closer inspection, this one was imported in from the US&A. Always keen to note the unusual, I was certain that this was not a Euro offering by VW. And it turns out I…

Out with the old, in with the new

A couple of weeks ago, I made the choice to change cars. No, not toy cars, real cars.   The Tiguan served me for the last four years……….however, with a family, the practicality of the car was limited. The pictures above of are ‘him’ in the dealer awaiting to be sold on to the new…
