Vintage Car Score - Ancient and Awesome Collection!
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 7:32 PM

While it is only a couple days into the new year, I can’t help but think of the old saw “Out with the old, in with the new!” Of course, when it comes to sprue, I can’t really abide by that at all. I’m more like “In with the old, in with the older and weirder!”. I know it doesn’t really follow the spirit of things, but you know me… always have to be contrary.

In that fine tradition then I would like to share with all of you a great classic car score I had in late November, in the one Toy Show I managed to get to before COVID started shutting everything back down again! Now, when I say “Classic” I don’t mean ‘50s and ‘60s like most people. I mean cars that are 90-118 years old, and kits that are about half that age!

If you’re looking for a weird collection of older Brass and Vintage era car kits, then click on the link below the see some of the awesome chestnuts I picked up late last year, and don’t forget to vote for your favourite too!

Nice score.  Curious to see how they go together, but some really cool subjects.

Thanks,

John

Nice collection.  The Rambler reminds me of the first car over the Cascade mountain range around that time frame, on an old wagon road.  IIRC was a 1905 Olds.

I scored similarly at Nordicon last September.  I found three 1:16 old kits- Thomas Flyer, Rambler, and an old Buick- I think it was 1911. Rambler will be first on bench.

Nice!  Are you going to build them, or did you buy them as collectible kits?

Very cool score there!!!

They're all cool but I love that Midori Alfa Romeo '31 Glan/Gran Sport! Beautiful car and yes it's a very sexy painting!

I have built a couple of those Matchbox kits. Not bad considering they are 1970's vintage. There were other car kits in the range at the time. Revell now have the moulds and release an odd one from time to time.
