One of the more interesting pieces I picked up in Japan, this is a Tomica Toyota Celsior that was a promo for the Osaka Motor show back in...well...I don’t really know which year!

It helps in this case that the black with a gold chrome rim really goes well with the two-tone white and silver paint.

If you search for Tomica Osaka Motor Show pieces, several come up, but I haven’t been able to find any other pictures of this one.
