Yesterday Porsche posted a FANTASTIC time-lapse video showing the assembly of a new GT3. In a little over 4 minutes you can see every phase of the manufacturing process, from the automated parts selection process to painting to final assembly. Totally awesome, however, gold? A GOLDEN 2022 911 GT3?!? Come on… 🤐
After my latest RWB Porsche, looking over the Road Cars page I thought things were a bit confusing. That being so, I decided to add a Customs/Modified section to the bottom of the page, where I’ll list my customized models from specialized shops around the world. Yes, I’m aware that I wrote MANY times that I’m not into modified cars and the “toonerz scene” 🙄. While that may still be true, I will have a select few modified car models in the W-143 Garage basically for aesthetical reasons. I’m definitively a function-over-form type of person; however, some silly stuff does float my boat 🙃.
Therefore, I moved all the RWB and TECHART stuff down there.
Very recently I upgraded a grail model, the Le Mans’ Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. This is one of those models that was paramount to have in my collection. I first got one in 2017, from Minichamps. And I was quite pleased with it, being the best one available at the time. However, in late December 2021 Spark released their version. Since the car is a grail model, I almost immediately bought one (or two… 😉). So, is it in fact better than my previous Minichamps version?
