Family friend Sarah is in the States at the moment and sent these photos of movie cars from Universal Studios. If you're a movie buff you will no doubt know them all. I confess I had to look at the signs behind them in most cases. Apart from the Flinstones and Back to the Future, of course.

A day trip to Wanganui yesterday resulted in these photos.
|Cute little Morrie 1000 mobile billboard.|
|Very nice 1972 Rover P5B saloon parked in Wanganui.|
The coupes are the desirable model, but somehow I don't think I could say "No" to one of these either

|Higgin's 2014 Mack Trident looks almost new.|
|No rest for this 15 year old Foden, which must have done more than a million by now.|
|Two different model Freightliner Argosys greet at the intersection of Dundas Road and Wellington Road where State Highway 1 turns at Sanson.|
|Saw this in a field near Palmerston North.|
I wasn't sure exactly what it was until someone on facebook identified it as a Guy.

Here are some of my favourite cars, in 1:43 scale, from my collection
|Another from the Oxford collection is this Daimler DS 420 which is well known as being the last Jaguar/Daimler produced using the XK Jaguar engine in its 4.2 litre form. |
The last one was built in 1992.
|The Mercedes Benz CLS saloon was available with several different engines including V6s and V8s.|
This is a Minichamps model.
