Poster Poser

Those my age would know this;
As a little boy, the exotic wedge fast shape is an ultimate dream ride.
The menacing look even captures the childhood fondness of robots then.
I remember my classmate would draw this endlessly until he masters the car's details.
Most of us would have pictures of it. A poster is the ultimate on the wall décor.
Ah those were the days!

Reliving that age of naïve automotive amazement is embodied in this heavy 1:43 diecast.

Best find of previous year

Looking back with a wide smile

2009 was a great year for my growing collection!
Of the many wonderful cars to come my way,
This one is the best I got for that year. A truly great holy grail found!
Actually it was send over to me and found by a wonderful friend..…
I can’t thank him enough.
Incidentally was received on my birthday week last year!
From the 1960’s Rail Route Series by Majorette.
The only known Porsche F1 (Type 804) in real life and 3" diecast.
