That (oops! not a Capri) Mustang will be good for any Westcoast Eagles fans (West Oz Aussie rules team) - I'm not one of 'm!

I had to wipe the drool off my phone after seeing that Ford GT!

Must say I am rather partial to that Mustang but I already have a SUNOCO Ford Capri Group 5 (when I fix it up that is). Regards Chas Le Breton (charlesx)

Sideways have announced that the Toyota Celica is now in stock at their distribution centre in France.
This was originally planned for release in January, before a factory issue (broken mold! ) caused rescheduling

Sideways have just announced the imminent arrival of the next Group 5 model, a JPS fantasy livery of the Lancia Stratos.
I have to admit - the ugly/striking shaped Stratos looks pretty good in a black dinner suit.

It is definitely "Datsun month"  - did they call them that in Ozzie too ?
Sideways just surprised us with the second livery of their T2 Group 5 Skyline; a (I think) fantasy calsonic livery.

Nissan Skyline Group 5 T2 
Usual setup, but I think it is the first model to be released using the same digital ready cable connector as are being used in the Slot.it cars.

My tip I set up a Slot.it GTR 32 Skyline yesterday, and I glued that connector onto the top of a sheet of 0.8mm lead placed forward of the pod, behind the guide.
That allowed me to shorten the guide wires and cut off the soldered ends which tend to break, to use loose twisted ends,  and fix them, so they centre
the guide strongly.

Old Nissan’s are called Datto’s. Like the Datsun 1600, 180B etc. I think it went to Nissan shortly after with the Bluebird with the rear wheel drive which became the front wheel drive Pintara.
