I know it’s day 6 of ///May week but it’s the 5th day of the week and “E” is the 5th letter of the alphabet. So it goes. The E1.
The Benchmark. That’s what the automotive press named every single M5 generation. I only was lucky enough to try the F10 from Motorsport but that one wasn’t nearly as impressive as that E92 M3. I’d probably rather try an M5 from the E60 generation. Why?
Finally, no #loophole or #recycleweek needed. As for the 4th day I actually have a cast I haven’t shown before!
To many there’s only one M3: The first one. Having driven an E92 quite intensively I’m not that narrow-minded but when it comes to the looks the E30 is the one to beat! Probably has something to do with being at an age you actually were around when the E30 was the thing to beat anyway...
As I am, just like TFritch, the proud owner of an 02, of course I have some casts on that one.
Day one of ///May week is for the 1 of course. And another extremely busy week means another #loopholeweek for me. Or rather: #recycleweek. As I’ve been around over here I’m sure some of you will recognize stuff, and I’m sure others won’t.
Looks like a Peugeot D3. But Norev sells it as a Chenard-Walcker 1500. Which actually have a family-tie as Peugeot took over Chenard-Walcker while they were producing the 1500. That 1500 was for the amount of kgs it was able to carry.
Recently I got my Tomica G. The Gelände. And it’s nice to see the difference with how a SUV has evolved when you put a more recent one next to it. I don’t have MLs or something so I’m gettin out one of the few 1/64 SUVs I have: Minichamps Porsche Cayenne GTS.
It had a little cameo last week, this Citroën DS23. Last week’s was the DS19, this one has the bigger engine and the bigger headlights. As in 1967, with the 2nd nose redesign, it’s light clusters grew significantly.
Wait, is it Tuesday again already? Darned! Got me some Norevs as I’ve shown last Friday and one of ‘m was the amazing Mercedes Benz 300 SL W198.
As the weather in Italy was sooooo terrible this week we decided to return early and enjoy the weather at home a bit as the weather here is amazing. This weekend we’ll hit 25 degrees and that is, for the time of the year, pretty good. No time for a shoot due to the transit though so enjoy a regular visitor at LaLD’s,…
As I’m abroad just some Teutonic greetings from me. Traveling from Ascona (Switzerland) to Monterosso al Mare today. I’ll be going through Arese so that might get some extra pictures. Maybe. Maybe not.
As it’s King’s Day over here and I have other stuff to do (concerns drinking beer and such) just a short orange (the color of our royals) post from me to remember Philipilihp what he’s been missing last few years. And to show that next to the Charleston I have built a 2CV Spot, my favorite, in LEGO as well.
Look at that riesen autobus hidden a bit behind the Ricard wall. Riesen? So it’s big? I’d say so yes...
The day of the Wildcard! Finally I can show a 5-pot, just as I showed a bit on Loophole Week Wednesday. But, as you see the mighty V60 by MBX, you already know what direction this is heading. But give me a break, as it’s Wildcard day anyway. And... It’s not just a 5-pot. It’s being helped by...
Someone clearly had to beat me posting today’s Turbo Day as Nick posted his entry at 11 minutes after Friday had started for Kinja-land! But as it is Friday I’m sure it won’t be the last R5 Turbo we’ll see.
You might recognize this one as I’ve shown it way, way before. About two years ago. What I never did know though was... It has an openable bonnet!
V10s... So Loop Hole Week LaLD Engine Week continues, will 2 straight fives positioned in a “V” make a V10?
Damn you Loop Hole Week LaLD Engine Week! I found a way but someone beat me to it! Somewhat. At least using the same car. PHILIP!!!
And this is my second post for Loop Hole Week LaLD Engine Week. And I’m glad the second day is all about 6-pots as I have some of those as well in 1:1 scale so this one can’t come as a suprise ;-)
