Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

5th day of the Car week and today’s theme is Purple. To be honest I had just noticed that I didn’t have many purple cars in my diecast garage, and also was on the lookout for the C210 Skyline from the Hot Wheels Japan Historics 2 line.

Incidentally the very next day a fellow collector put one up for sale and I bought it straightaway(call it my sheer luck).

Honestly I wasn’t really a fan of the C210 Skyline until I saw the model released by Hot Wheels in their car culture line. And boy was I blown away by it. That purple paintjob, the low stance and those small 4 spoke wheels just made the car more appealing.

The perfect tampos and the logos on the car are just the cherry on the cake. So it pretty much was a no brainer to feature this Skyline in the car week. More diorama action below.
