On the way back from the big fireworks display there was this nice looking Toyota MR.
Happy Silver Week.
For this kind of collection there should be no age or prejudice. Having a selection of die cast models is just the same as having books that tell you about the automotive history though having the delightful experience of putting your own hands on a piece of art.
We have achieved the time of lesser peace, die cast models are always selling at stores. In times of war, iron was scarce so a lot of the resource was destined for building jets, tanks, guns and supplies for soldiers to fight at the battle fields.
This attractive selection (1/3? scale) belongs so someone that we, together with some other folks, spend hours talking about one model , cars and more and it’s so intriguing how much they know about this fascinating history of car racing. Thank you for letting me post here these pictures.
Nowadays, I’m not so sure about the resource of iron but having die cast models seem a very eco friendly and peaceful way of collecting cars. This is a much more exciting and thrilling part of history. Encouraging kids and car lovers to purchase these historical items seems much more wisely and a better purpose for the usage of our natural resources.
I have always been a great fan of 1/61 scale models and have already started my collection.
Stay tuned and think ecologically
Our family car is about to be paid off so we will have some spare cash to pimp up our family spaceship.
We got a flat tyre a couple of weeks ago and we needed a new second hand tyre. I was advised to always get Japanese tyres wether brand new or used. We handed over to the shop’s clerk to find us a decent tyre and he suggested a tyre made in Singapore (Falken).
All I now about Falken is the advertising signs at the races throughout the world’s biggest championship.
Just for the fun, I tried out different wheels and this is one of my favourite. I come back home and my wife is all excited about seeing the car. Well, there’s nothing new just the tyre. She said – so why I wanted to come with you. 😖 that’s when I learned about the spare Cash😁
So glad to have taken pictures of some rims.
We had an interesting discussion about what set of wheels we will have in our car. These will make our car looking Yankee. Yankee are the folks that some times are misunderstood as outlawer, rebellious or trouble maker.
These are a little over the budget yet.
This Toyota belongs to a really cool grandpa. Right now, I’ve discovered how fun an SUV can be and this is being used, for quite a while, in its home land, the mountains of Japan, so it sounds just the right timing.
The grandfather didn’t seem to be very used to all this internet globalisation thing so I hesitated to ask for his permission to post it here but as his grandson may, I kindly ask for the permission and said that probably his grandson could find the website for him.
We both agreed to hide the number plate and he was off to the mountain roads.
It is a pleasure to be part of all these people’s lives, even if just for 5 minutes and thank you grandpa, and grandson, for being part of our bloggers, readers and a interneter’s lives.
