JH RX-3 aka Savanna (S124) pre-DLM, but I notice that while the diecast seems to be an S124 (1973-1978), the card art depicts an earlier S102, (1971-1973), which is peculiar to be sure

Here are the Japan Historics in all their unleashed glory. I had to keep pics of the cars on their cards though, because the card art for the JH series is phenomenal.

Post-DLM ‘63 Split Window with quite a neat paint effect, more blackwall goodness to be had here, also this car harks back to before the large rear bumper so even though it’s plastic base, the body remains unmolested...ahh, simple times, those

Post-DLM Turboa, which while a silly casting, can stand on it’s own merits with detail, besides, you can’t lose with ultra hots!

Post-DLM Custom Corvette, which curiously says ZR-1 on the rear plate even though I’m fairly certain there were never any LT5-clad ZR-1 Corvettes sold as an open-top roadster, also neat is the non-factory ground effects kit, Ultra Hots!

Post-DLM 5-pack Split; similar to the Krackle car ‘63, this blackwall wearing lad actually has WHITEwalls, and also the aforementioned small bumper and plastic base, and man you don’t like the 90s-tastic tampos, then you weren’t a 90s kid! Or maybe you just have good taste ;-)

Post-DLM ‘57 Bel-air, with another healthy dose of 90s awesomeness, from the purple and pink to the design tampos to the ultra hots, this one’s going down in history as a time capsule of a time before internet and smartphones, when super nintendo and sega genesis were the consoles to have, and when looney toons still controlled your every saturday morning!

Post-DLM S-10 Blazer 4x4, replete with opening doors and the construction type wheels, although the suspension and axles on my example were sort of messed up..none-the-matter though, as it’s going into my creative options thread organizer case!

Post-DLM Custom Corvette in gold, this car was literally begging to come out of it’s tattered box, and although there is some orange residue, this car truly shines
