Matchbox Porsche 928 Restoration

The big grand tourer from Porsche has always held a special place in my heart. Intended to replace the great 911, it has spent most of its life not getting the respect it deserves. Same goes for the 914, 924, 944, etc. But those tides seem to be changing finally, and I'm glad for it! I came across this beat looking model on ebay and had to have it.

Nothing too drastic, just a paint job and a wheel swap. I think it came out looking superb! I had toyed with the idea of adding modern wheels, but the old Matchbox 8 dots somewhat closely replicate the original "phone dials" these cars came with, so that was the winner!

And hanging out with some friends from the collection.
