Big things with little cars

One small upside (other than saving a ton of money doing it ourselves) to my huge sewer connection dig in the front yard, my father-in-law unearthed a Tomica I’d never heard of before, Tomica #71, the Shiden BMW 77. Very limited info, but apparently it’s a prototype that raced sparingly in the JGTC in the late 70's. Looks very similar to a Porsche 917LH to me. Obviously it’s worse for wear, but cool anyway. Minters out of the box are about $10 on eBay, not too rare.
