Teutonic Tuesday: Der ungeliebte Porsche Teutonic Tuesday: Der ungeliebte Porsche

Number 996. Not to be mistaken for 666 but still: to many a number not to be adored. Same here actually. At first I was like: What the Fuchs is happening here? Where do the eggs come from????

French Friday: quatre fois quatrelle French Friday: quatre fois quatrelle

New - to me - release by Norev: the R4L in Gendarmerie outfit. And all I can see when I watch any R4 nowadays is that it is so obvious where Le Regie looked at when they designed the R4: Japan.

Teutonic Tuesday: Französisch zurückziehen Teutonic Tuesday: Französisch zurückziehen

Second Majorette of today! This one is from my trip to Normandy last summer. You can’t go home without some Norevs and Majorettes. And this one really got my eye for being a...

Spaghetti Sunday: Giocattolo di Costruzione Spaghetti Sunday: Giocattolo di Costruzione

It’s been a while since I built one of Kyosho’s 1/64 Ferraris. But this rainy Sunday I felt it was time to see of my daughter was ready to help out a bit. Achievement unlocked. (Animated GIF alert!)

French Friday: Le Membre d'or d'André Courrèges French Friday: Le Membre d'or d'André Courrèges

A bit late for the French Friday party but no worries, I didn’t forget! I’ve shown a few Matras before, even a 1st gen Bagheera. But in the second year of production the Bagheera Courrèges was introduced. Named after André Courrèges.

Teutonic Tuesday: Einspritzung!!!! Teutonic Tuesday: Einspritzung!!!!

I’m not sure if we’ve seen this one around these parts. I for one haven’t shown many of Solido’s 1/64 line up. Just the Karmann Ghia and the W12 Nardò.

French Friday: Samba pa ti French Friday: Samba pa ti

Yeah yeah, the Samba is like an Alpine from PSA to me: I’ve shown ‘m before and it won’t be my last. I just love ‘m.

Teutonic Tuesday: mit einem Hauch von Italien Teutonic Tuesday: mit einem Hauch von Italien

This car only exists because of the fact Porsche was absorbed with its Formula I program in 1959. So, to keep momentum in it’s GT-racing, Porsche needed a miracle.

French Friday: Start your day with a Delahaye French Friday: Start your day with a Delahaye

I’ve done a Delahaye before, the 175 Coupé with a Motto body. The one we see here is a 235, built in de same era (1951-1954). Delahaye still mainly sold chassis to have a coachbuilder create a body for it but with this 235 it took a new path and added a body production facility in it’s factory.

Teutonic Tuesday: Transatlantik treffen Nachschau Teutonic Tuesday: Transatlantik treffen Nachschau

As some of you might know I had a fellow Kinja-naut Jonee over last week from the USA. And he brought me some excellent goodies, both from France and the USA. Like this awesome Porsche 935 by Bburago.

Quod Erat Demonstrandum Quod Erat Demonstrandum

Hereby I present you proof that adding sound of an air cooled flat six will immediately improve the quality of both sound and visuals. Damned, now I seem to be in the need of another book. And a DJI Spark.

French Friday: Des Milliers de Miles French Friday: Des Milliers de Miles

It’s been a while since I did a post on a Renault 4CV derived car. So it’s about time I did another one, and it actually is a plain 4CV, a 1063, that proved it wasn’t just local races the 4CV competed in. Because this one went all the way up to Italy.

9/14 Day: And now a cheap 1/43! 9/14 Day: And now a cheap 1/43!

Und das war es, just re-showing shots of an old post. Tschüss!

Teutonic Tuesday: Porsches aus das Land der aufgehenden Sonne Teutonic Tuesday: Porsches aus das Land der aufgehenden Sonne

After three days of Automotive awesomeness, topped with delivering a French car for shipping to the US, it’s time to slowly get ready for autumn. And concentrate a bit on getting the 1:1s ready for winter and enjoy the smaller scales a bit more.

French Friday: parfois vous avez besoin de dix-huit French Friday: parfois vous avez besoin de dix-huit

I was a huge fan of the EB110 from Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. (sounds Italian!), the company founded by Italian Romano Artioli in 1987. But somehow a worldwide recession and some maybe not so brilliant business moves (acquiring Lotus for instance) forced the company to be liquidated. And that was the moment big bad…

Teutonic Tuesday: Italienisches Entwurf aus Bayern? Teutonic Tuesday: Italienisches Entwurf aus Bayern?

Philipilihp already did a write up on the BMW 700 quite some time ago so I won’t have to tell it’s story again. Although these ones are of the more sporty kinds.

French Friday: les Bijoux Anglais French Friday: les Bijoux Anglais

As I’m in some sort of British flow this week on Instagram I thought I’d share this Citroën Bijou. From Slough. England. And yes: There is a 2CV underneath this greenish awesomeness! So it’s French as well.

Teutonic Tuesday: Die Rückkehr des E30 M3? Teutonic Tuesday: Die Rückkehr des E30 M3?

A lot of hardcore automotive fanatics have complained over the years about the M3 getting softer. To many the E30 still is the one to get when it comes to balance and handling. The E36 was way too comfortable and to make things worse: that US edition was missing out on power.

French Friday: Boite à pain verde French Friday: Boite à pain verde

It’s about time I get a 1/18 out of it’s box. One I really was glad Otto released this year. A Simca 1000 Rallye 2 with SRT 77 kit. In green. My favorite color for these.

Teutonic Tuesday: Der Liebeswanze Teutonic Tuesday: Der Liebeswanze

The Love Bug. According to Wikipedia Herbie the Love Bug is a “sentient anthropomorphic 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, a character that is featured in several Walt Disney motion pictures starting with the 1968 feature film The Love Bug.” So it’s a car that actually lives. And it still lives on.
