I always was more of a Siku or Matchbox guy, so I never had any HW cars. I always prefered stock looking cars, a taste maybe given to me by the people who gave me the Sikus and Matchboxes when I was a kid. The oversized wheels and all too flashy decals normally aren't my thing.But when I saw these two today, I simply had to get them.

Who could resist these little Japanese coupes? Certainly not me. They are such a nice vintage JDM couple. The oversized wheels are HW standard but apart from that, the details on both of them are quite nice. The Celica's plastic headlight are superb for a car this size, and the RX-7 even has a hint of rivets that hold the wheel arches to the body. The only annoying thing is a little overspray on the Mazda's front wheel arch, which you can even see in the picture. But hey, after all, these are $1 toys! And we have seen much worse from HW. Civic ED hatch I'm looking at you!
