That was my first and ONLY 1:24th diecast for many years!
I found it in a magazine ad in the 80s. I kept the ad for months thinking that’s a LOT of money, I don’t make much, Dad will yell at me and tell me I wasted my money etc. I realized they had installment plans so I ordered it. Once it came my hands shook when ever I held it. To me it was like holding a rare museum piece! Lol. I soon ordered the display case with name tag on it. This was in long ago and I was in my teens. Fast forward to 1999 and discovering the Internet, eBay and the rest is history. I found I could buy second hand models for sometimes 1/2-1/3rd or even less of original retail. Some models were never displayed in their boxes and mint to boot! Others were $10-20 dust bombs that needed a good cleaning. Whatever the case my collection soon got large rather quickly !
