914 / four

My partiality to the car wearing both the marques that I loved most is obvious.
The VW-Porsche 914 is such an automobile of queer amalgamation due to its parents.
An offspring brought about by a volume car company on one hand and the other the purveyor of specialty sports cars. The result is an interesting combination to say the least.
Today the union has come full circle, Porsche is now owned by Volkswagen AG.
My interest was reinforced with the recent introduction of MB of the 914. This makes it a 3” quartet of one of my favorite car.

Matchbox

Siku V-series; Germany

Faller; Germany


Schuco; Germany

Hi Danielh, glad you liked the 4some. Happy to share these with you. Indeed the Siku, Faller and Schuco can be hard to get in my place. Good thing I have a wonderful European friend to help me find these :-)

Thanks Mike!
Matchbox came a bit late in the game :-) The older ones have the charm that current release can't match IMHO. Still a very welcomed 914 addition. I think there is a version in 1/43 in rally form, I know you'll like that one :-)
