I am in Canada this week, and thought "what could I post that can relate to that". Using the six degrees line of thought, I chose this Pantera. In the 70s, there was a Canadian car, the Bricklin, which mostly used Ford engines. The Pantera is an Italian car with a Ford engine. So it all works.

Now on to the model. This is a really nice casting. Scale 1:61 (and a Pantera is not a huge car, so neither is the model), introduced in 1978. The tampo is a correct style, and is nicely detailed:

Looks good on the racing style wheels:

Of course, it has a wing:

And of course, it opens to reveal an engine:

I think this is an especially good looking casting, which is saying something, as Tomica knew how to set the bar high.
