BOS (Best of Show) Mercedes C220

Jun 26, 2014 No Comments

  It’s been argued that the 2.2-liter Mercedes-Benz C220 that debuted in 1993 was as much a result of the advent of the microchip as it was a need to pen a successor to Mercedes’ everyman-level 190.

GreenLight Black Bandit Series 8

Jun 25, 2014 No Comments

No matter what the machine, black cars look cool, period. If you agree, you’ve probably been pulled in by GreenLight’s slick as hell “Black Bandit” series of menacing rides.

Ottomobile Volkswagen Caddy

Jun 22, 2014 No Comments

  Here’s the good thing about OTTO’s 1:18 models: they’re killer. They are cars you’ll never see in diecast, not even if you reach a Methuselian age. Here’s the bad part: They usually sell out. Fast. And it is with both of those statements in mind that we present this outstanding little Volkswagen “Caddy” pickup. [...]

Hot Wheels Elite One “Flintmobile”

Jun 16, 2014 No Comments

Back in the mid-’fifties, The Honeymooners ruled the TV airwaves in glorious black and white. Folks loved the working-class characters, the everyday trials and tribulations of the Kramden and Norton families, and how things always worked out by the time the credits rolled. In the early 1960s, animation giant Hanna-Barbera took the Honeymooners formula and [...]

Hot Wheels Elite One Dark Knight Rises “Bat”

Jun 10, 2014 No Comments

  The latest film in the Batman Dark Knight trilogy was pretty dark, indeed. There were forced blood transfusions, fellows getting thrown from airplanes, and all kinds of horrific attacks on Gotham — all done at the behest of a villain who spoke through what appeared to be a re-purposed drive-in movie speaker. When he [...]

Minichamps “Red Bull” Renault RB7 “S. Vettel Japan GP”

Jun 08, 2014 No Comments

One of the best parts of poring over a model like this Minichamps’ 1:18 Renault RB7 is comparing the model to the real thing – a pretty easy task, given the virtual reams of photos and multiple cyber-shrine web pages that follow this one’s pilot, Sebastian Vettel. It’s even more fun when the model is [...]
