Still not a pretty car in my eyes, but a huge improvement over the old one. Quite popular here as a company car, or at least it was last year when taxation heavily favoured EVs.

Seems to be the most popular EV here and recently the Leaf completed a 60.000km longevity test in Finnish car magazine, their first EV to complete that test.

Now, a more traditional car, 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo by Hotwheels.

Thanks, this model in red has been available for at least few months now but have seen some youtube videos which show this car in met. gold but because of Corona virus, it probably takes quite some time before new models or colours will appear here in the shops.

Thanks for the tip :) Hadn't checked it out until you mentioned it. There's a doctor's stethoscope in the trunk, nice touch :) I probably should take a better look of my other 1/64's to see if there are more surprises to be found :D

Nice models. I really like the style of those new classic Matchboxes, could be persuaded to collect those.

Thanks, the BMW has even detailed lamps front and back, grille and license plates too.

I think I have had that BMW in my hands a few time. I pick up a bunch but by the time I get to the register, most have left my shopping cart. I am really trying to limit how many I buy.

Trying to limit as well but sometimes it's hard :D I didn't "need" the Hotwheels Mazda MX-5 as I already have the Motormax version of the same car, but still somehow ended up buying it :P

1/64 scale is growing year by year between the collectors. Have you seen the transformations of jakarta diecast models in YouTube?

Is a scale I appreciate more and more with the pass of the time.....

Thanks :) Nowdays there are more and more detailed 1/64's, which of course makes them more attractive. Haven't seen that Youtube channel, have seen some restorations of old, bad condition 1/64's though.

Some nice ones, I even have some of them. I have drastically slowed down buying any of these. But then again I have not been in many stores this year.

Thanks :) I guess I should start avoiding the toy departments and watching some Youtube channels doing Hotwheels & Matchbox case unboxings :lol:

Thanks, some of these are nice and interesting and cheap, so they tend to end up in my shopping basket :P Thankfully Hotwheels makes also a lot of fantasy cars, which don't interest me at all.
