I don't know how many times this poor Cortina has been repainted.

So I repainted it again.

That looks fantastic!

Speaking of adverts with cars stuck to things, there's this SAAB one.  The story goes it was a transporter driver who didn't pay attention to the bridge height and this one SAAB got stuck there and then left for advertising to higlight how strong they are.  Probably apocryphal on the reason for it but the photograph is right there.  I don't know where this happened either, the location changes depending who is telling the story.

That's brilliant, I remember seeing that poster on the Cromwell Rd and stopping to try and see if it was supported by something, there was nothing visible.
Also remember thinking Ford fucked up by not giving them a Crusader to use, there was a great big poster advertising the Crusader next go it!

My dad fixed many a toy car of mine in the early 1980s with this stuff. Ironically it was never sturdy Matchbox or Corgi cars though, usually some shonky Guisval 1/36 or Bburago 1/24.

Another Eddy model gets started, not in a finishing mood at the mo. This one needs a new transparency.

Minnis Bay hidden treasures are worth a follow for Facebookers - lots of airfix, train shite, model shite etc. 15 mins up the road from me, she will post stuff out - but I can also probably collect for you with some notice.

 

It was on Antiques road trip a while back.

Everyone seems to be making progress with their purchases from Eddy but I haven't done anything with any of mine except look at them. The Westie Countryman looks good - is it based on the one restored by Practical Classics?

Always look on the Shite side of life

 

1999 Vauxhall Zafira - shit or shite?

1978 Austin Maxi - proper shite or proper classic?

1972 Renault 6 - genuine garage find

Most of my Ramrod Collection items are still exactly as they arrived, and will stay that way.

All I've done is make a start! I just wanted to show Eddy that the cars he has collected for so long are getting some love. Payback for him really, I hope.

I remember having that Rolls from new, which must have been about 1965.  And yes, I do appreciate seeing someone give them some love.  The love I no longer can.

 

PS that hot rod is glorious!

I'm not going to repaint all of Eddys cars,

In fact one of his repaints in particular was so good I was totally unaware until I was told!

 

I did enjoy painting those Budgies though.

 

Remain assured though,little Eddy will remain as is ;)
