While I was updating my 1:64 Le Mans collections, I realized I had gathered several nice castings by the French maker Norev. I thought it would be fun to group them together and see what Norev cars you guys could add.

These castings have no scale marked on them, but I see them often marketed as 1:64. According the companies web site, they do produce cars in 1:64 scale, but also 1:50. While I did not see any of these listed on the site, I would guess they were somewhere in between, around 1:55 to 1:60 (though I know they are not). But at any rate, they still fit that wonderful, universal description of, "approximately 3" long"!

Being an endurance racing collector, these are truly some of my favorite purchases in the last year. And I owe a shout out to one of our guys for helping me get the 3 car set from the 2008 Le Mans. Hope you like.

What a beautiful collection, I really admire them. I'd love to have some too since Norev did a great job on these awesome race cars, but too bad that they are a bit large in scale.

They are a touch larger but still display well with my collection because let's face it, outside of the Kyosho few are really 1:64 in scale. And I'm not even sure those are 100% perfect every time.

I am sorting through the cars right now to load in a Le Mans display, I will grab a pic when I'm done for size reference. Some have bothered me so badly I could not accept them (Jada is the first example to come to mind) but I'm pretty good with these particular castings.
