I’ve just spent an embarrassing length of time looking over these Matchbox cars featured in a 1970 Japanese ad. And wishing I had them.
Also, I love it that they have a little girl playing with a car, too. Way to go, Japanese Matchbox advertising professionals!
Which is your favorite? I’m hung up between the very very vintage cars on the two bottom rows and the yellow Jeep sixth row from the bottom. I also like the ambulance.
OK toy car collectors, kids, everyone else, maintain yourself. The Toy Atlas Rainbow is a wonderful installation of 2,500 old toy cars by UK artist David T. Waller. The piece won the People’s Award at the Arts Depot Open last year. As absurdy beautiful as this thing is, don’t you just want to take a running slide into it and start playing with all those freaking cars? (via the always wonderful fasels suppe)
A Matchbox(tm) car from my childhood… note the dogs in the back of the Mercury station wagon. I should have known I’d spend my life with dogs!
Rover Sterling (Matchbox)
The speedo on that Vette was and always will be amazing.
If you ain’t talkin’ money, I don’t wanna talk. #highwaystar #bmw #e28
Manga artist Kenichi Sonoda loves cars, guns and girls. His art is especially automotive oriented. His two most famous series from the 1990’s are Gunsmith Cats and Riding Bean and they’re filled with car chases and painfully detailed representations of classics like the Mustang GT500, (which stars heavily in Gunsmith Cats).
Both animes/mangas are classics and interesting to watch if you like cars and guns and girls.
Greatest Mustang there ever was/will be.
I like the 240SX center garnish.
Fucking Panasports man
Trying to do some new livery or something, don’t know what I want exactly but I need an open canvas to play. Though I enjoy how clean my car looks without it.. except for my hood and my stupid wheels. But I did get smaller tires up front and bigger profile tires in the back. Just sucks my front coils locks are seized so I haven’t been able to lower the front just yet.
The hood actually adds to it somehow…I like the wheels as well.
