I stole this Autoart Lancia for $40 thanks to CL although the seller had it on eBay for $125 lol.

Super tempted to get both of those and upgrade them, but I'm holding out for the Wangan Devil Z, or whatever it's called. The Lancia is just such a pretty car.

Oh yes, the Devil Z will be a auto-buy when it comes along:

I just love the shape of the Z so I will probably get all colours(!). I will keep one stock and modify the others.

Funny, it must be Z-time. I was just watching FuguZ on Jay Leno's and put Z on Buy-list. Great restomod, I would like to have such car...

Is this orange diecast from Autoart?

Yeah, its released in white, silver and orange. The blue/purple Devil Z is announced too.

Now if I could find some &%%¤&%#%¤#%¤%/ 1/18 Watanabe wheels my life would be better. :rotfl: Might have to get into resin casting, really strange that its that hard to find the most common vintage JDM tuning wheels.

I bought a second dealer edition UT M Roadster. This was loose so it allowed me to be ok modding it to be more like my 1:1.

I used wheels off an Autoart Viper GTS-R and tires off an road going Autoart Viper as they are Michelin Sports, not a perfect match to my 285/35s but close.

That's awesome! You need the profile diameter on the tires though, profile seems somewhat off.

It is, the Viper sizes are not quite right, but it was what I had on hand and a car I did not mind hurting its value.

Nice additions! I had to scramble to add the AUTOart Huayra when the CND $$ hit the shitter. Still got one at a decent price, I think :D
