I only found out this morning that it was 550 Spyder day, so I quickly grabbed the only model of it that I own, a 1:64 Maisto with terrible wheels that look like they are wooden wagon wheels, and took some photos in my car on the way to work.
Another Porsche. Another 550. And another car that competed the infamous Mexican road race: the Carrera Panamericana. I’ve told about that race before in a post on a Vaillante. In fact: I’ve done it way, way before when I showed a Hongwell Mercedes Gullwing with even more info on the event in it.
