Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car.

Tojeiro

The way in which John Tojeiro became a constructor is typical of the Fifties — he built a special intending to race it himself then first one, then another, customer arrived on his doorstep and suddenly he was no longer a special builder but a small scale constructor. Ironically, he never did get round to racing one of his own cars. Although little more than 30 Tojeiros were ever built, and...

One has also heard of 'Ginettas' being built...

Miniatures news

We don't often see a model from Russia, but this 1/43 Benz Motorwagen is a jewel. Almost literally, as many of the 486 parts are silver-soldered in place, even to the individual wheel spokes in the machined rims.
