1951 Maserati GP, Low Miles, Needs Paint

By Gerard @presurfer
Michael Spengler is a German photographer who is hoping to publish a book devoted to his collection of diecast and metal toy racing cars.
Spengler has almost 300 vintage racing car models in his collection. Many of them are in perfect condition, but the examples that catch the eye are the old beat-up ones, which contrast beautifully with Spengler's high-production-value photography.
These racing models, from the '20s to the '60s, were clearly played hard, and collector Michael Spengler even explains how German kids amped up their races with catapults and putty.
