My second Radcast entry today features a car with wood trim - Radwood. Is it rad? You can be the judge. This is Tomica 34-3, the Honda Civic Country. This casting entered the range in February 1981, remaining until August 1984, and is a popular model to this day:

Scale is stated as 1:59, likely accurate. As expected, there is snappy door action, crisp glazing, and springy suspension. From all angles, it is a little car that gets noticed:
