Ken Block Ford Fiesta

Love both Fiesta and Ken Block gymkhana vids! thus having this car is like 2 in 1 greatness! I once tried the highest range fiesta hatchback in a test drive and been loving it since then..drove it to 170km/h and still feel like it can go more! imagine how fast the heavily modified Ken Block version can go~

the casting is based on the 5-door version though..not the 3-door version like in gymkhana 4

100% HotWheels Honda Civic Si

Thanks to my friend kukubeh for keeping the car with him for so long lol
finally got it! my first hot wheels with openable engine hood + RR wheels! :D

Even though the size of the car is the same as any other 1/64 civic si from the mainline series, hot wheels managed to make the detailing close to perfect..with lights in separate clear parts and built in engine!

Elite Transporter: Evo X

I dont have much car transporter in my collection. The one i like most so far is the '63 VW Bus Pickup from Jada ..the one from MBX real working rigs series is interesting too but the price is not appealing. Lastly i went with this simply because it also comes with an Evo X!

The Transporter with Evo X

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302

This year is a little bit special for Hot Wheels market in Malaysia as we are given many new series coming in to retail shops like the Vintage Racing, Garage series and even the 20-cars set.
Vintage Racing consist of classic muscle cars with better detailing and rubber tires. Most of the line-up are not in my collecting list but these two pairs of Boss 302 did get my attention.
anyway, enjoy the pics!

The best thing about these two cars is the almost perfect replica of the real cars, 
with matching decal designs, wheels and color schemes

THE Bugatti Veyron

We all know why Bugatti Veyron is so popular; it's the fastest, most epic, most expensive, most majestic looking street legal car. well if we talk about being the fastest, the normal Veyron is no longer the one but its Super Sport version still is! As a tribute to this awesome car ever i thought of getting the best replica of it.

Being a 1/64 scale collector, surely i'll not buy the 1/18 nor the 1/43 version even though the detailing is next to perfect. Hotwheels was the only brand i can look up for one but it cant really represent the charming charisma the real car has. Then i found out about this Limited Edition Veyron from AutoArt, ooh how expensive it is! lol..but lucky me, during my visit in Beijing i found a shop selling it at a very irresistible price..So here it is!!!!

The limited edition comes with plain rough cardboard type of box instead of the normal glossy ones.
i prefer the normal ones

Aston Martin Gulf DBR9

I always like Gulf livery on racing cars..popular ones are like the Ford GT40, Porsche 917, LMP1 etc but as always the nice ones are always hard to get..Managed to find one at last a few weeks ago..and its the DBR9!

The 2005 DBR9 had to give the front seat to this new guy now

Calsonic 350Z

After such a long search..i got it! not that its very hard to find but the prices set for it are always high and ridiculous...luckily found it at amcorp at a good price. Before i was aiming for the Tomica Limited version but that was pure impossible now so this one will do. Actually, this one is even better IMO. Enjoy the pics!

Then i found out that there is actually a variant for this car..mine was a release from 2006 while the other one is from 2004..the one in 2004 has decals at the tires but lack the windscreen decals.

New Speed Machines Additions!

It has been quite a while since my last Speed Machine post..not that there is rarely restock but the thing is i rarely buy variations..i prefer having one variant that looks the best compare to other variants.
anyway these are what came during the 7E sales last month (year) lol

This is the second variation i have..this version imo looks even better than the first one..
like it even more because it follows the theme of the original 1996 Mclaren GTR prototype

Custom Cars

Car customizing is becoming popular among collectors nowadays.
since the manufacturing cost is getting higher every year..there are less and less tampo and details given in the original design of the cars sold in the market..thus customizing is the best option to get the variants and designs we collectors like most.
below are some custom cars that i had my friend Andrew@cham did for me..they are quite cool.

 it is hard to find the red color of this car, i asked for it to be repainted in red

i got this from amcorp in a very bad condition. straight away sent it for restoration.

love the blancpain gallardo..luckily hot wheels came out with the casting 

another car that is not available in red so i have it repainted..
i like the normal red that most FE Ferraris have more though :P

some brands like hotwheels, tomica and even fastlanes have really good and accurate castings but sometimes the lack of details put me off from buying..customizing keeps the hobby alive and fun.
the only things hindering me from starting this new venture are the lack of time and tools.
hopefully soon i'll be able to join the fun too :)
