I've been busy making photos, editing and uploading my VW Collection into my file. Complications with the titles means I have to go through each picture individually to rename them. What a chore.
At some point I'll add scal to them as well as it can't be seen clearly how big or small some of these cars are. Considering the amount of detail on the plastics some of the vintage and size can be determined to what type of beetle it is.
Not true on the 1937 VW by Kager Edition whose vintage dates back to the early 1990s. Its made of an unusual composite, not quite plastic, more fiber glass. It had an awful musty smell to it which has dissipated over the years. It cost 97.00 Guilders (150 Euro), probably one of the only models that will increase in value.
With the blessing of LaToya I've added a new thread in the 'Social' forum aptly named Car Art.
I'm hoping to encourage other budding artists to come and display their talent.
Great... payday has finally come and the first thing I do is pay my belated 3 weeks of board, two months worth of phonebills a couple of V-cans and add 14 Matcbox-Mattel and a 5-Pack to the collection.
I must admit that some of them are really cool. I'm more of a sleeper fan when it comes to custom build. There's this fella down the street aways who has a totally mundane and boring Chevy Impala Wagon in an awful aqua colour. Its a typical car that can hold a total surprise under the bonnet, and it does. The first major clue is that the Chevy is lowered. The second clue is that the mag-wheels are custom build to suit the car. The soft rumble indicates that this car houses a much bigger V8 than it originally came out with (straight-six). And the car moves.
I drive a Mitsubishi RVR Sportsgear (New Shape) which was build between 1997-2005 the usual lifespan of an automobile in the designing world.
For me the New Shape RVR is an Evolution on the previous model.
So you get RVREVO.
I would like to wish everyone a very Happy and prosperous New Year in 2009.
Already 2008 went by so fast. Its been a year of big decisions especially in ending two of my out of control hobbies and the debt that accrued with my credit card.
New Years Resolution for me is to focus on getting the debt down completely, reduce the limit to a manageable amount and actually save for that rainy day.
