Gumpert Apollo

Hi guys! it has been a while! Gonna do a short post on this awesome casting by Siku! yeah it is my second one and seems like the brand is becoming familiar in my collection. Since the size of Siku cars are slightly bigger at ~1/50 scale, i rarely buy them unless the casting is really hard to find from other 1/64 manufacturers, like this Gumpert Apollo!

Not Particularly the prettiest car, but certainly an eye catcher! 
Great job to siku for the awesome details done to the car

VW Scirocco

Volkswagen cars are always on the top in every Malaysian collector's list. Not only because of the brand, but the cars are famous here in Malaysia. IMO VW hatchbacks or the short term, hot hatches are always among the best design cars. my personal favorite would be the Golf and scirocco.
Hot wheels first release the scirocco casting in 2010..but the one from Speed Machine series caught my interest most because of the cool highlights on the car details. The casting i believe is based on the GT-R version. The other brand is from siku which features the scirocco in its stock form. It was my first Siku and yes I like it :)

Even though there are from different brands, taking pics of them side by side looks perfect!

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302R

Wohooo~ It's my first post on Greenlight! not exactly my first Greenlight car but felt like blogging about this more since the car has similarity with my Hot Wheels Vintage Racing. Always being fascinated by Greenlight cars because of it's accuracy and superb detailing. Just that most of the releases are muscle cars which are not the type of cars I'm concentrating on. Anyway this one definitely caught me!

How can you resist such beauty~

Nissan GT-R

The name GT-R is already a well known brand in Malaysia even if the person is not a collector nor a car enthusiast. For me, the name GT-R became known when it was featured in the anime Initial-D. (yeah not much of a car lover back then :-p) And also when one of my seniors from school brought the car (R32) back from Japan. Though the wiki has been live on the internet for a really long time, i never really check how the history of GT-R is like. I've only known it since the R32 till the current R35.
Finally last year Hot Wheels came out with many cool models of classic race cars, including two of R32 predecessors, which are the HakoSuka and KenMeri that are known to the world wayy back from 1969 and 1973! Only then that i realized that my GT-R collection is actually completed! lol..So here are them!

Sadly, Hot Wheels didnt produce the R33 in their mainline so far so the one from tomica will be the representative lol..Anyway in this post I have the idea to let you see how the design of the GT-Rs evolved in each of their line-ups..pretty cool when you compare it like this :)
