British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

If you are a Simpsons fan, you probably know the episode where Homer designs the ultimate dream car which he christens "The Homer." Rolls Royce grille, big air intake on the hood, big horn, air freshener, big fins, separate compartment for the kids, etc. Now available in diecast. :D

OK, here's some more fantasy for this thread.

These probably are not the same cars. :roll: The 1:43 is a Norev Hotchkiss Languedoc. But the larger car is more likely an artistic interpretation of the more recent Hotchkiss Anthéor Cabriolet with its faired headlights and side vent window. I've recently seen an ivory 1:43 Anthéor, but it sells for about $146 :(

From chic to charming. The artist did a good job interpreting the shapes, very nice!

The 1:18 green Countach Pre-production car is a real rarity and went to a good home after a clear out of my 1:18s. There was a rumour that Kyosho would also do the car in 1:43 but it was left to Minichamps to finally produce it after what seemed like waiting an eternity. I'm surprised Kyosho haven't done it as one of their 1:43 'everything opens' LP400 series.

Having seen the original 1:1 at the Lambo factory museum I had to have that Countach no matter what the scale.

Do you also turn water into wine Jeff - if only I could turn all my 1:43s into 1:1s :lol:

Very nice, thought first you have two kinds of trailers until realized the lower photo is 1/43 :)
