This is really what makes this hobby great.

The instant I had seen the Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Celica 1600 GT-R, it was love at first sight.

Let me introduce you to my first Toyota. A 1985 Celica GT coupe I owned from 1996 to 2002.

At the time it was just a reliable little car to drive for me, and introduced me to the world of Toyotas. I restored it with a paintjob in 1998, it was my car through school.

Now this was a no-brainer. Even with the poor Canadian dollar, this was a must have.

It’s more than I expected. I know it’s not the same model I owned, but I’m just thrilled that a coupe, without flares, in white, was offered by Tomica. I’m so happy with it.

Tomica. Thank you. I’m now a huge fan of this series.


Now, let’s look at it next to the old Hot Wheels Supra based on the same A6x Toyota platform..

Yeah. There’s a huge generational gap and cost difference between these 1:64 Toyotas, but I also still think it was just great that Hot Wheels even did a Supra back in the day.

Thanks for looking. I hope you guys also have such a great time when you hunt down a nostalgic find like this.
