I have not posted in a long time. Basically I've just had too much else going on and have had little personal time for the blog. Minicars and other items continue to come in, and I've expanded my range of minicar collectibles to include other Japanese car marques, and buses and trucks and in general, any vehicle that reminds me of my visits to Japan.
I see Xanga has made some changes since my last post. Not sure if I like the changes but not much I can do about it. Will have to see what happens...
While I'm on here, I might as well post my newest addition to my Tomica collection. I have to thank my friend Rob G from Australia as I acquired this model from him, along with some other great minicars.
No. 35-2 DOME CELICA TURBO
Scale = 1/68
Made in Japan
This model was first introduced in December 1980 in a black version. According the Tomica Collection book, there were 4 different versions released, and this blue version was the last (and was meant for export). Also, according to the fact that this is a black box with a barcode, it must have been made & sold in the mid to late 80's.
