The Best of “My Take” Model Car Videos of October

My Take KuvakasJohn Kuvakas is a great friend of hobbyDB and a connoisseur of cars in 1:1 and smaller scales.  He started a YouTube channel to highlight old and new models and we just love it. So we asked him to start sharing his Top-3 most popular videos of each month. Give them a watch here!

October was a vacation month for Kelly and me. But, before we left, we loaded up the channel with videos we could release though the month. The response was great as we see some makers move into relatively new subject to model.

This is an interesting development. The decade of the seventies is sometimes known as the “Malaise Era” due to heavy bumpers, smog control equipment and vastly reduced horsepower. Still, there are those who grew up during these times longing after the newest cars in the showrooms and on TV.

As those car lovers emerge into their prime earning years, we’re seeing a shift in the hobby. In the past, there was little to no interest in models of cars built in the seventies. Now, it’s one of the fastest growing segments of the hobby, particularly in 1/43 scale. Our videos for October show this.

My Take’s most popular video was a review of Stamp’s beautiful ’76 Monte Carlo, perhaps the most iconic of the neo classic deigns that emerged in the middle of the decade. See it here –

Coming in second was a review of several SMTS offerings now being made available on the Brooklin website. These white metal beauties have been around for a while but deserve a closer look. You can find the video here –

Our third most popular video was DeAgostini’s “American Cars Series, Box #3.” This is a subscription program designed to bring subscribers a long list of Muscle Cars from the late-sixties/early-seventies era with a few nice surprises thrown in along the way. See the video here
