Ecorra on T 87 restoring

no comment Posted by smitkees

Poválečný model Tatry 87. Podobná renovace zabere něco okolo tří tisíc hodin práce.

Wrecks Tatra under his hands turning into polished gems

Vitezslav Hinner dedicated his life to restoring vintage cars, especially cars Tatra. It additionally offers so little – is because of Koprivnica, where in 1993 he founded the company Ecorra, under which he, along with another more than a dozen people working on reshaping rezivých wrecks in gleaming beauties.

Tatraplan and other classics deliberately left at the mercy of mother nature…

This might be a painful sight for classic car enthusiasts. Jaguar, Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW; just a few of the iconic names whose logos you would never expect to find on vehicles in such a sorry state. But what might really shock you is that these unfortunate automobiles are not actually abandoned, and their owner is in fact a classic car lover and expert himself, who has deliberately left these cars here at the mercy of mother nature…

T 603 Slot car

no comment Posted by smitkees

If you want a 1:32 scale slot car to race on your Scalextric or Carrera track, you have lots of choice.  There are sports cars, racing cars, saloon cars and rally cars available from the modern day and yesteryear.  Now added to the list is a 1960 Tatra 603.

With the resin bodyshell kit including vacform windows, interior and rally decals, you can build your own Tatra and put it onto an existing slot car chassis.  Or if you would like to go to the next level of realism you can fit one of the chase-cars chassis which allows the front wheels to steer and the whole car to lean through the corners.

The chassis was developed to add some authenticity to 1970s American saloon cars, but works equally well on classic rally cars.  If you don’t think a classic saloon should corner like an F1 racing car, a chase-cars chassis could be just the thing.  To explain what goes into the chassis, there’s a YouTube video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8ff2NzKj6U

And for a quick look at how it works with the Tatra, look at these two:

And if you want a running mate for your Tatra, coming soon from chase-cars…. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v375/garethj/603_1000MB_top2_zpsc9884943.jpg

Nailed to the ground by a T 87 in Munich

no comment Posted by smitkees

I was in Munich for DLD, a conference, and I had a morning to kill.  So I joined a group tour of modern art museum Pinakothek der Moderne’s design wing.  There was all kinds of impressive stuff — but I immediately gravitated to a crazy-looking, beautiful car.
