The Dark Side: Auto World 1967 Ford Mustang GT

TheBellKing showed off his Auto World Challenger R/T. I was impressed and couldn’t resist. I joined the dark side DLM.

I’ve never owned an Auto World so I just had to do it. Good thing it comes with a box.

My cousin really loves Mustangs and this was meant to be a gift for my him so it probably shouldn’t have been DLM’d.

He’s in Hong Kong so the forbidden fruit known as the Ford Mustang to him is like the Nissan Skyline to me. While we’ve got a 25-year rule, they’ve got a RHD conversion rule.

They now have the new Ford Mustang starting at $698,000 HKD. Factor in just a few months worth of parking fees and you’ll realize that isn’t far off from what it costs to own a brand new Nissan GT-R in the US. [For reference, their GT-Rs cost as much as a new Lambo here.] Doesn’t surprise me to see a booming market for diecast there.

This Auto World cost as much as a kid’s toy Tomica over there.

So I opened it. At least this makes packing luggage a lot easier.
