Beautiful Cars Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

I have a Tamiya 1/24th scale model of a '60s one.   The '70s-80s versions were neat also.

^ Didn't I see this in Robocop 5?

I do not think so, but it does remind me of the car in the original Mad Max Movie. The pursuit interceptor that Max drove with the supercharger.

These are some of the concepts they came up with and did not use for Robocop: http://www.robertwebb.com/robocop.htm

Robocop...if it aint the Taurus we are talking about...then its the one and only 6000 SUX. 

An American Tradition getting a shytty 8.2 m.p.g.  It even comes with a Blaupunkt radio... 

Based on a 1977 Olds Cutlass Supreme.

About the Robocop 5 reference though. Could it be satire?

If you guys dont know, I have 70 DIECAST model cars in scale 1:18.

I used to have over 100. I since have downsized the collection to 70 and only recently have I displayed them.  

I got rid of the doubles and the redundant models. It makes for a more tighter and focused collection. I decided to stop at 70. 

Problem is....I dont have the Alpines (new and old) in my collection and I would LOVE to have them. Problem is...they wouldnt fit as I dont have any other room in my display cases (I could make room of I wanted to...but it be too crowded messin' up the perfect view points I have know)) and they wouldnt fit my display themes either.

Just edit your original post. You get lots of stuff right, lovely cars for sure and some prime examples of bad corporate badge engineering. LOL :)
