ACME Trading “Mondello & Matsubara” 1937 Fiat Topolino

Dec 08, 2014 No Comments

Fiat is back on these shores again, and the little 500s of today harken back to a unit called the Fiat 500 Topolino. Like the modern version, the elder Italian was among the smallest road cars of its day – and that made the aerodynamic coupe a perfect candidate for use in drag racing. That’s [...]

Dec 06, 2014 No Comments

  Sebastian Vettel is one amazing Formula One driver: young, talented and very, very fast. Driving for Red Bull Racing, the 25-year-old German has finished on the podium in almost half of the F1 races he’s started, won more than one-quarter of them, has won the F1 World Championship in 2010, 2011, and 2012 and, [...]

Tommy Boy GTX in 1:18

Dec 05, 2014 No Comments

GreenLight Collectibles is a great source for models of movie cars–whether it be in 1:64, 1:43 or in big 1:18. Now, you probably don’t think of comedians Davide Spade or the late Chris Farley as traditional car-guy film material, there actually were some pretty sweet muscle cars in some of their films. One such is [...]

AUTOart Stainless Steel Brake Rotor Plate and Coffee Cup Set

Dec 04, 2014 No Comments

Car junkies run on caffeine, so it’s a natural that a man cave would benefit from having this  coffee cup, saucer, and spoon set around. These appear to have been stolen from somebody’s front suspension; the saucer looks exactly like a cross-drilled brake rotor, and the handles of the cup and spoon have lightening holes [...]

AUTOart Carburetor Salt & Pepper Shaker

Nov 30, 2014 No Comments

What could be more fun than passing a fellow car nut a classic Weber DCOE when they ask for the salt, pepper, or sugar? Not much, say we.  AUTOart’s lively homage to stoichiometric metering comes with two chromed velocity stacks for the spices; look closely and you’ll see the “S” and “P” patterned in their [...]

AUTOart “gearshift” Umbrella

Nov 28, 2014 No Comments

If you’re going to the races, this umbrella is the ideal take-along to fend off the weather in style. The umbrella’s eight-panel, silver-coated nylon canopy is 26 inches wide, so you’ll deflect mid-day rays or a light sprinkle with the best of them. Opening it is fun, too: a gearshift-like handle with a shock absorber [...]

Brooklin 1934 Miller-LaSalle Hearse

Nov 24, 2014 No Comments

For 1934, custom body manufacturer Miller introduced an “Art-Carved” Funeral Coach with a curved arch and supporting columns extending the full length of the body. The ornate “carving” was stamped metal, patterned to look like drapery panels. The body was offered on several chassis, but none was more unusual than this one, on a stretched [...]

Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari 458

Nov 22, 2014 No Comments

It wasn’t easy for Ferrari to nip the top on its 458 Italia, given the 202mph supercar’s speed, and, oh yeah … where to put the roof in its down position. Maranello’s answer came in the form of a moderate redesign starting aft of the doors, all the way back to the 458’s retro-bullet taillights. [...]

Premuim X 1964 Ford Country Squire

Nov 18, 2014 No Comments

As American families moved to the sprawl of the suburbs, a demand was created for a vehicle that could haul a sheet of plywood, carry the family, friends, or most of a Little League team when required, and look good while doing all of the above. The answer was the station wagon, and Ford fielded [...]

Brooklin 1955 Chrysler Windsor Convertible

Nov 14, 2014 No Comments

The all-new 1955 Chrysler lineup featured Virgil Exner’s “100 Million Dollar Look,” with design cues taken from the Parade Phaeton showcar. The longer, lower look was especially effective on convertibles, and the plated windshield frame and upper doorsills on Brooklin’s very accurate new Windsor Convertible (BRK-183) really enhance that look. Chrysler’s entry-level Windsor base engine [...]
