I knew I had to have this model after reading Pillarless Coupe’s excellent review of the same car. It took me a while to find this red on white car, as eBay seems to just be flooded with the black and red or black and green painted cars. I had given up on tracking down a used one on eBay, so decided to put this hunt on the back burner.

The stars aligned earlier this year when my fellow LaLDers helped me clear out my old Hot Wheels hoard and American Excellence had a sitewide sale. This Welly Carrera was one of a couple cars from that order.
