Here it is! My grail car <3 I’ve been hunting for a Corgi Interceptor for an insanely long time. It’s been on my eBay alerts list for longer than I can remember. This was a torturous hunt because I really try to refrain from spending too much money on a single car. Usually my “sweet spot” for buying a nice 1:64 is around $10 (+ a little for shipping). Anything higher than that, to me, feels overboard. The other part that made this hunt difficult is I absolutely HAD to have the silver dish hub variant. I’m not a fan of the whizwheels version that Corgi made. I like the classic wheels better. Lastly, since this is my grail car, I wanted it to be as minty as I could get away with. Factor all of those together, and these usually fetch $30+ which is really out of my price range.
Well, the diecast gods were smiling upon me earlier this summer because someone put this car up on the ‘bay in auction format with free shipping and I won for a reasonable $15. Totally psyched! I adore the Interceptor. It’s one of those bat-dung crazy cars that just looks/sounds/seems too nuts to be true. It ticks all the right boxes to make my heart flutter into dangerous levels and I am tickled to have this in my collection. At this point, I feel like my collection is complete now that I have this. haha! But, I will keep hunting for more oddball cars that don’t get enough love. :)
