Hillclimbers

Post by arnold_C43 »

Open wheel or full-fendered. Classic or contemporary. Competition hill climb cars from the European Hillclimb Series, or even right here in the states at legendary Pikes Peak, have always been of interest. Thinking of expanding the collection to include die cast hill climbers. Wondering what the rest of you collectors have in your collections to give me ideas for the wish list.

BMW 700RS already published on this forum tops my wish list right now. As a place holder and thread opener am offering up the Dinky 1:43 Matra [MS 11-01] wheeled by Jean-Pierre BELTOISE and credited with 1970 wins at Mont Dore and Urcy European Hillclimbs in France. European road sign provided gratuit by Dinky hints at its heritage.

Anxious to see what you may have in your collections. Enjoy. Cheers. arnold

I know I have seen some Pikes Peak racers over the years here. Sadly I do not have a single one.

Yes, Jeff. No doubt the odd hillclimber has been posted up on the forum. Ferreting one out would be a challenge for me unless happening across it reviewing a post. Perhaps over time, a few will migrate to this thread.

Spark has an '85 Audi Quattro Pikes Peak due for future release. For me, that looks like a good starting place for a small collection of hill climbers. Especially after doing a Wiki for the driver bio. I don't pre-order, but did request a notification email when it comes available.

Cheers. a

Spark also did a more recent Peugeot (208?) Pikes Peak car.

You are correct, Tom. Thanks. 2013 Peugeot 208 T16, driver Sebestian LOEB. Dealer here in the states I generally buy from lists it as a Future Release. Did request email notification for when it comes available as well.

Great selection of Alfa hill climbers, Alfaholic. Even a Ferrari 'Breadvan' in there. Been decades since seeing one of those. I knew there had to be some die hard die cast hill climbers on here. 8-) Australia especially likes its hill climbs. And all of them from motorsports eras close to my heart. I shall spreadsheet the ten of them to my wish list. Be hard choosing a favorite.

[Edit. Oh, and special thanks, mate, for your effort in not only identifying the model by maker and type, but by also including the event and year. Makes researching for a favorite much easier.]

Cheers. a

Nice little collection Martin. I thought you might even have had more than that.
