More 1/18 cars. The Tyrrell 6 wheeler is STUPID derailed.:shok:

Quite amazed that the Lancia Stratos' design still looks fresh today, as when it debuted more than 40 years ago :wub:

That Tyrell is another outrageous design which really stood out to this day. No doubt it directly influenced Kawamori when he did the mecha for the Future GPX Cyber Formula series. Though I've never watched the series, I've been humming and hawing on the toy when it was on PO last year. And look, its the same scale as the Tyrell!

@sqidd - OK dude! Now I OFFICIALLY hate you! That's AWESOME! Where did it come from?! 

I'm guessing you mean the BJ & The Bear big rig? It's from a company called Iconic Replicas. 1/43 scale (about 14" long). It's considered the quintessential example of the rig. I LOVE IT! Always loved it when I was a kid. Saw it and the actor at an Autorama when I was I'm guessing 8-9yrs old. I was in heaven.

They go for some pretty dumb money and are hard to find. Here is one on feeBay. If it goes for under $300 that would be considered an outstanding price.

Am I the only one slightly confused why the storm figure is wearing a bikini bottom, while the illustration has her wearing hot pants?

I'm more confused why the figure looks like a man.:unknw:

I'm more confused by the lack of genitalia on Silver Surfer.  Barbie's boyfriend Ken is rocking a bigger package than this guy.

1:18 1965 Exoto Chaparral 2. Man this sucker is NICE! The detail is amazing. I put a few stock shots in at the bottom of what it looks like without the bodywork. 

And who doesn't love a car that has zoomies and velocity stacks sticking through the bodywork!?!?
