GMP 1966 Lola T70 Spyder #7 Team Surtees, driven by John Surtees
GMP 1969 Lola T70 Coupe #8 American International Racing (owned by actor James Garner, Bob Bondurant & Dick Gulstrand), driven by Leslie/Motschenbacher
Sleek looking race cars I know nothing about (LoL....not my "area"). GMP loved racing; they tooled up "everything." Looks like you got 'em all Gavin! 😎
Excellent models and pictures Gavin. The McLaren is my favorite.
Thanks very much @bob-jackman! Glad you liked them.
Minichamps Maserati Ghibli SS Coupe
I don't think I've ever seen this one before Gavin. Minichamps picked a very attractive color combo. What year(s) is this?
What year(s) is this?
Maserati produced the 1st generation Ghibli from 1967-1973...the SS from 1969-1973. In my records, unless it specifically says on the box, I list the 1st production year...so I have it as 1969.
I do love this color combo & it is my favorite. Minichamps also released the Coupe in black on tan & the Spider (which I previously had, but sold) in silver on black.
AutoWorld 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator
Thanks for that Maserati info Gavin.
I like this Mercury Cougar (kind of a "low-end-high-end" if you know what I mean). Mine (orange) had those ultra-cheesy-Ertl GT rims with beauty rings. I'm waiting to score a nicer set of HW61 Mustang Magnum 500 wheels. Your FoMoCo mag-wheels look better than the GTs.
Here's the Cougar T/A for a different look, including the "Dan Gurney For President" bumper sticker.
Auh yeah, the late '80's & early 90's... "Boxy racers!" Love these Autoart sedans. 😎
Minichamps 1988 BMW Z1
What the hell is this? 😮 A very unusual BMW for sure....one I've never seen. 🤔
It is definitely an unusual car. The Z1 was built from 1989-1991, but never sold in the US...though now that they're over 25 years old, there are some here. It was built on much modified E30 3-series chassis with a brand new rear suspension & powered by the 2.5 inline-6 from the 325i. The body panels were plastic & completely removable...you could technically change colors by changing panels.
