That BMW is a classic and well sought after here in Canada. The styling goes on you. When it first came out in 1969, the year I graduated high school, I thought it was an ugly car. it grows on you after a while.
The forgot the vertical bars in the grille for the Ford Ranchero. The Nissan looks stubby but looking at the real one online it also looks stubby. Funny little truck.

The Ranchero is different to the Australian Falcon Ute, the door is longer and the car is longer behind the rear wheels.

Stunning finds! That BMW is the best. My best friend's father had a 1602 in orange. He was so proud of it.

Yes Dinkydi. They are just about completely different as the Australian Falcon was designed at Product Engineering annexe in Geelong. The only three USA Falcon the engineers and designers used were those test and drive vehicles in the USA. Ours were designed and built in Australia while plans and full scale Cub pattern design model was approved by the Ford Motor Company America. Cheers keep safe.

Nice to see they do come of the classic British cars. this Jag XK 140 is a classic and a perfect example of British Automotive engineering at its best.

I don't like the Biue tinted windscreen though.

Re: latest arrival 4 months, 3 weeks ago #298

Platinum Boarder
I prefer a clear windscreen too and Mattel are still not chroming the grille or the bumpers

Re: latest arrival 4 months, 3 weeks ago #299

That is not right. I think they may be trying to save some money on these cars by not doing the plating. Kind of like Cheaping out!

I think I agree with you Jim as some of the new releases just have that sort of cheapness about their quality.
