Auto World  Christine 1958 Plymouth Fury

Auto World Christine 1958 Plymouth Fury

While Michael and K.I.T.T. were tearing up the Universal back lot, author Stephen King was penning a missive about a massive old Plymouth that came off the assembly line populated by more spooks than a Hallowe’en hayride. That novel – Christine – eventually made it to the big screen in one of the better-realized efforts […]
Hot Wheels Elite  “K.A.R.R.”

Hot Wheels Elite “K.A.R.R.”

Before Michael Knight’s bad, black, cyber-Trans Am “K.I.T.T” took to fighting crime, there was “K.A.R.R.,” Knight Industries’ first – and decidedly flaky – prototype robotic car. Unlike its properly bolted-together sibling,  K.A.R.R. had a few screws loose (not to mention a couple of rogue circuits in its main processor), and was stashed safely away until […]

AUTOart  Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 “Francorchamps 1975”

AUTOart Alfa Romeo 33 TT 12 “Francorchamps 1975”

AUTOart’s Signature Series Alfa Romeo Tipo 33TT12 demonstrates something close to detail overload in the sub-$500 category. For one thing, this model of the Derek Bell / Henri Pescarolo-piloted winner of the 1975 1000Km at Spa is a true high-ender: delicate, multi-paneled, and spidery, the car comes in a clamshell package that had us a […]
PremiumX 1973 Chevrolet Bel Air Chicago Police

PremiumX 1973 Chevrolet Bel Air Chicago Police

The Bel Air became Chevy’s entry-level model when the entire lineup was revised in 1973, and the low-end 4-door sedan was a favorite with Police, Taxi, and other fleet buyers.  PremiumX’s new resincast wears the correct color scheme and graphics for the Chicago P.D. in ’73; body lines are accurate and every detail, from the […]

Brooklin 1939 Nash Ambassador Eight 4-Door Touring Sedan

Brooklin 1939 Nash Ambassador Eight 4-Door Touring Sedan

Nash sales for 1938 were dismal, but in spite of the red ink new CEO George Mason insisted upon new – not just face-lifted – bodies for the 1939 line. Although the styling was certainly evolutionary, the ’39s had larger wheel openings (and larger wheels and tires), smoother, lower-looking lines, and an unusual front end […]
Brooklin 1960 Cadillac Series 62 6-window Sedan

Brooklin 1960 Cadillac Series 62 6-window Sedan

While the 1959 Cadillac was the flashiest ever built, a 1960 facelift made the car much smoother and less flamboyant, with a full-width grille, toned-down chrome, and smaller fins.  Brooklin has released this very impressive model of the top-line Cadillac sedan, the Series 62 Six-Window. The body’s lines match photos from all angles, and Brooklin […]

Brooklin 1960 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Ambulance

Brooklin 1960 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Ambulance

Wayne Corporation bought two longtime Ohio “professional car” coachbuilders in 1957,and merged them to form the Miller-Meteor Company.  From the very beginning, all Miller-Meteors were built on Cadillac Commercial chassis. These were big cars – and Brooklin Models’ new larger casting equipment has made it possible to release this striking model of the 1960 Miller-Meteor […]
Auto World  Spinout  Shelby Cobra 427

Auto World Spinout Shelby Cobra 427

Comedian Eddie Murphy (yes, he used to be a comic) once did a bit about Elvis Presley’s string of campy (though hugely successful) movies. Elvis’ scriptwriters were never too taxed; whether The King’s character  was a pilot, a cowboy, or a hitchhiking hobo (we’re not kidding), it was never long before Elvis was hip-swiveling and […]

Automodello 1965 Sunbeam Tiger “50th Anniversary”

Automodello 1965 Sunbeam Tiger “50th Anniversary”

The Rootes Group built the Sunbeam Tiger for one purpose – to bring U.S. dollars to the U.K. All of the 1,649 cars built in 1964 were shipped over here, and the first right-hand-drive Tiger wasn’t built until January 7,  1965. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of that first “wrong side” Tiger, Automodello has released […]
Spark 1958 Edsel Citation Convertible

Spark 1958 Edsel Citation Convertible

Although it was a sales disaster at the time, the Edsel has become more popular over the years, and none more so than the top-of-the-line Citation convertible. Spark’s new resincast of the distinctively styled car is simply one of the best 1:43-scale models to come along for a while. Its excellent “Spring Green” paint matches […]
