If you love cars, I’m just about positive you started life loving toy cars. I’ve yet to meet any gearhead that doesn’t have some toy cars rolling around on their desks or shelves or floors, just waiting to be stepped on, painfully. I unashamedly love toy cars, so I was thrilled to be invited to see Candylab Toys’…
Check that out! It’s a toy Nissan 370Z, the car that’s been around longer than that fridge magnet you made in kindergarten but is kind of cool because of that, bathing in a miniature car wash Nissan uses to test its paint durability. How rad is that?
A toy chariot estimated to be 5,000 years old has been discovered as part of an ongoing excavation in one of the oldest settlements of the world, according to reports, and it’s seriously awesome.
Vintage good looks and three-wheeled goodness are some of the most defining aspects of a Morgan. And Morgan delighted us further by making an all-electric model, the EV3. But there was one problem: it was for adults only. Not anymore!
The problem with the mini-cars for kids like those Lamborghinis, Porshes and this awesome McLaren is that they sets the bar a little too high for real car ownership. Listen, kid, odds are you won’t own a Lambo someday. But with a mini Volkswagen GTI, your kid can try something much more pragmatic. And fun!
Toy cars—they’re not just for kids anymore! At least that’s what I keep telling my girlfriend in a campaign to replace her family photos with this sweet Hot Wheels diorama I’ve got going on our mantle. If you have a friend like me, I can help you get creative with this holiday gift guide for people who love little toy…
You love your car? You can’t help but pose in front of it? This praying mantis knows how you feel.
Every inch of Dennis Erickson’s home was covered in cars. On the beds, on the floors, in the bathrooms. He had 30,000 cars, from the smallest miniatures to full-sized working classics. And now he doesn’t have to deal with them any more. His church does.
Images surfaced on Chinese social network Sina Weibo that show a Gallardo driver getting into trouble for transporting a giant stuffed bear the only way a Lamborghini allows it.
If you had to guess what the first really successful Matchbox toy vehicle was, the one that convinced them there was money to be made cranking out tiny toy cars, what would you guess? An E-Type? A Model T? A tank? Nope, nope, and nope. The one that convinced them had a pair of disembodied shins. Were you going to…
The Sultan of Brunei has what’s considered to be the world’s most insane car collection with over 5,000 rare cars. But there’s a suburban dad from Pennsylvania who puts him to shame with over 30,000 vehicles covering nearly every brand and model. And they all fit in his house.
There's an alternate universe where semi trucks, trailers and all, tandem drift with Nissans and Mazdas. That universe exists, it's just really tiny.
The legendary Ken Box is back, but how can he set up the ultimate Crazy Cart course when irate gorilla security guards are always trying to shut him down?
When I was a kid, I started to realize that humanity is doomed when Matchbox cars started to become less durable pieces of plastic than rugged crushing metal. Things were certainly looking brighter in 1965.
What's cooler than a Martini Racing Porsche Turbo race car? A Martini Racing Porsche Turbo race car you can put on your shelf. Excuse me, I need to go to the toy store now.
I'm pretty sure rocket motors and fireworks and other pyrotechnics have been duct-taped to R/C cars since kids have had access to both items. And I'm sure a good, if possibly finger-losing time was had by all. Even so, it's still great to see what an 18lb-thrust G-class rocket motor does for a remote-control Corvette.
Meet the Camatte57s. It's Toyota's "sporty, open-top family-focused concept car" built for the upcoming Tokyo Toy Show. It's a bit like IKEA furniture: Weirdly named and frustrating to build.
