Zaugg-Modelle Serie Empire Dodge Challenger 1970

Lately i've been busy with restoring my real Vespas and my time with diecast has seen a drastic change.  Most of my funds are now diverted to the expensive restoration of my two rides.  However my thinking have changed when I saw this beautiful and rare hand built Dodge Challenger Convertible.  If I am not mistaken this American car diecast was hand built in Switzerland, bought in Japan and is now in the Philippines.

Just like my other post, i'll let the pictures do the talking.

Here's my update on my Vespa restoration

  Thanks for visiting!  Comments are always welcome my dear friends.

Vespa's new project Vespa PX

I haven't updated the blog for the past few weeks because I am busy with my first love, the Piaggio VESPA!   I already have a couple Italian scooters at home but I was lucky enough to get a sort of barn find in the city.  I got two pre loved Italian Vespas and I saved them from oblivion.  The original owner bought a pair of VESPAs and decided after a few years that they don't want it anymore.  The Vespas were untouched for almost a decade and I brought them home to my house.

These Vespas are gonna go to some serious restoration and I think am gonna spend around US$1,000 each to make em look brand new.  I'll be flying to Singapore next week and I'll be visiting Tong Aik Vespa shop there to buy all the parts needed for the restoration.  One Vespa is already running and the other one will be running soon.

This is my Blue Vespa and it was fixed yesterday by my mechanic Joseph aka ProjectV
