Mar 29, 2012 No Comments

We wonder if the fellows who designed the 1969 Camaro had any inkling at all of what it was they were creating, or how much of an impact the car would have on the American car culture. Sure, there were others that got to the pony car party before it – but when it came [...]

Feb 04, 2012 1 Comment

A few years ago, Ricko (or RickoRicko, if you want to be picky picky) was a little known German company that was being distributed in the U.S. in fits and spurts, which was a shame.

Look Back 1:18: Revell Germany’s Messerschmitt KR200 “Kabinenroller”
