I really don’t collect 1:18 diecasts, I think I have something like four or five of them in my whole collection, but when TylerLinner offered this lovely Ghia coupe for low low trade price of one mainline Hot Wheels, I could not resist. While I’m not a big VW guy, I have a real soft spot in my heart for Karmann-Ghias, especially the hard tops.

The model is made by Road Signatures. As far as I can tell it’s a basically stock car, with the exception of a lowered ride height. While it will never be mistaken for a high end model, it looks great and I’m happy to have it. Thanks again Tyler!

I love this dune buggy drawing on the box. The LALD exhaust is a nice touch. I may have to hang this on the basement wall :)
