As promised, my first post to LaLD is a little Japanese Chevy. This particular example has been in the family since new (one owner? haha) and got passed down to me.
To be honest, the quality of the model is pretty terrible. Tolerances are low, wheels don’t really match the vehicle and the graphics are poorly applied.
But hey, where else can you find a 1/64 Chevy LUV? Despite being dollar-store quality, the graphics are endearingly retro and the truck held up pretty well over the years. They seem to have been offered in white, red, orange, and even the natural rust color they were likely to be seen in after a few years of northern winters.
It’s a great piece in my collection, that’s for sure!
