I’ve always loved this 1983 Matchbox cast which was passed down to me years ago. The hood opens to reveal the strong 146hp turbocharged 2.2L four and those red and black graphics over battleship grey never disappoint.
Unfortunately, the metal quality does disappoint. It’s rotting all over right now, and from what I’ve read, that pretty much means the end of the line for this ole thing. Ironically, it seems to have been a major contributing factor to the near-extinction of the real cars.
Farewell, old friend. Perhaps I’ll find another
love Daytona Turbo Z someday.
