Little quiz: do you recognize this car (really common in Italy)?

Alfa Mito. Not sure who made it or scale - it's not the Norev or Minichamps 1:43 as they have 5-hole alloys.

What about this blue coupé?


Looks like a cheap version of a Dodge Viper GTS

This one reminds me a Lamborghini...


It's a Jaguar XJ220.

I don't know what's the name of this one. Do you know it?



An hybridization of a Porsche 935 (or 930 "Flachbau" / "slantnose") with a flounder?


It's a Porsche 911 turbo "flat nose".

Having this car for nearly 35 years now and just wondering if somebody can identify it. I think it might be accurate in design because i also have a Porsche 911 made by the same manufacturer and its well done. As a kid i always thought it was a Nova but i stop believing this a long time ago

Having a bunch of thoser in various combinations : tow truck, tanker, fire truck...real design or generic ?

Finally this one. I put a web pic instead of mine ( which has damage, got painted, not really well, at least 4 times, mixer rolled away long time ago.)
Always considered it as a Mack for a reason that i can't explain but pretty sure its not one

It was my instant idea too when seeing it. Simca 1307/1308, European Escort Mk2... Funny that you got such"exotic" model cars in the maple leaf country :wink:

Most of those " exotic " vehicles comes from Majorette and i have a bunch of Renault ( 5 Turbo, 25, Safrane, 19 Cabrio to name a few ), some Peugeot a Citroen XM and some others that i'm forgetting right now. As you can imagine, i had to wait for internet ( or at least for some movies in european locations ) to see what they really look like and sometimes misidentify them because i never saw them in real life

Just looked at the MK2 Escort and its made by Plasto, from Finland. Don't ask me how it landed here, i was even too young to know where Finland is when i got it.. :smile:

Did anyone else have these vinyl/rubber/hard plastic cars from Scandinavia which you could play with in the sand?

I had - and probably still have:
Land Rover pickup (green)
very flat Jeep that's probably not a Willys (red)
Citroen DS 21 cabrio (blue)

And by another maker, with tubby proportions and four-hole hubcaps:
baby blue Willys Jeep with yellow wheels
green Porsche 911 with red wheels.

And these, by yet another make and with the least detail:
Audi TT
Golf IV

I think, he mean the Norwegian "Tomte"-cars

https://www.google.de/search?q=gummiauto+tomte&biw=1665&bih=916&source=lnms&tbm=- isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwimnM3O14jRAhXYMlAKHc5JAlsQ_AUIBigB

Right now I don' t have the time to check them, but I still own a Mercedes 190 SL, a Rolls Royce Silver Wraith(?) Convertible, a Ford Thunderbird Convertible, a truck, a Renault Caravelle and a tow truck.

But the tow truck and two 1967 Mercury Cougar-rubber cars are looking different. The have different wheels and IIRC they are not made by Tomte, but by a West German company.

i might have some of them
red unknown flat bed truck
orange Land Rover pick-up
red Monaco/Fury/LTD ( not sure which one they tried to represent, single headlight might suggest the Mopar twins )

not sure if they are Tomte but they have the same wheels as in Ingo's link
sadly, i can't take a pic of them right now as the camera is dead and i don't have a cell phone
