Land of the Rising Sun-Day: Nissan Fairlady 300ZX

By starting out with a cop car, why not end the week with another? This 300ZX decked out in the iconic keisatsu livery is from Tomica Limited's HIGHWAY PATROL COLLECTION III - GT-R vs Z released in 2010.

I don't usually sought after cop cars for the fleet, but there's something appealing about a sports car wearing the Johnny Law uniform no matter the country of origin. I thought this will be the right car to be involved into chaotic car chases keep the other fast Japanese machinery under check.

For what is a dressed up regular Tomica, the details really enhance the looks of this toy model. Despite not being as flawless as a TLV model, it looks impeccable from a certain few angles; makes me glad when I scooped this up when visiting my mother's hometown 600km away. Feeling even better now that I have taken proper pictures of it after letting it sit for over 4 years!
