    Default Models, wrecked models or sick Frogs?

    This was posted I think it was in Sweden.
    Someone reckons it's models others that it's actual full sized cars.
    What do you reckon?

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Definitely models. Dioramas are very popular in car circles in Europe. Manoir de la Automobile at Loheac has a large room full of models and dioramas. It is amazing the detail that is in some of them.

    I suppose the saddest bit about this is how rare and/or expensive some of the models used are. CX and Panhard models are like rockin horse poo these days.
