For a lot of us, our car obsessions started when we were kids playing with our Hot Wheels toy collections. Now that we’re older, however, our motor vehicle appreciation has become more refined — both in regards real-world cars and their die-cast counterparts. If you, like us, have an eye for even the tiniest of details, you’ll want to check out the custom model cars from Vintage 43.

Based out of Venice, California, this brand specializes in taking 1/64 and 1/43 scale model die-cast toy cars, stripping them down to the bare metal, and putting them back together completely by hand — including hand-painting them with iconic and historical liveries and graphics. With an attention to detail rivaled by none, each of these tiny race car models is a work of art — including recreations of the Brumos Racing 934 from Daytona in 1977, the Burton Racing 934 from the 1977 Le Mans 24-hour, and the Max Moritz Jagermeister 934 from the Nurburgring in 1976. Each of these little beauties can be yours, so long as you’re willing to shell out $45 for them.

Purchase: $45
